Version 2.2.0



  • New Event System - which can detect when players click objects, press keys on the keyboard, or a certain amount of time passes, and then jumps to this node immediately. Uses the new 'Event' sticker.
  • New Function System - instead of rewriting certain tasks repeatedly with stickers, just write it once by making a 'Custom Function' and then use the 'Call Function' sticker to call it at any point.
  • If you set 'take focus' to false on these new stickers, the events/functions will be run parallel to the main branch. If 'take focus' is true, the event or function will take place, and at the end will return to wherever you were previously in the script.
  • New Parent System - you can set objects to be children of each other in the Layout tool (by clicking 'var' and typing in a parent name for the object). If a parent is invisible, the children will be as well - and if a parent moves or rotates, the children will, too.
  • If/Else If/Else - You can now add more lines to the if sticker.
  • Random Branching - the if sticker now allows you to set the outcome to be random, to any number of output nodes.
  • Tool settings persist across scenes (such as if a panel is open/closed, or where you're zoomed into the scriptor)
