Few useful Feature requests (w/ Concept images)

Those are few interesting and really helpful features for flowlab.
This discussion now became free to everyone

1. Mouse right-click (and etc.)
This one is pretty simple. It would be just an option for the current "mouse click" behaviour.
I really need this for Awakening just like all the other things mentioned in this discussion


2. Multi Filter
This would save a lot of clicks and space in the Editor. The filter behaviour would get an update that could detect multiple numbers.
This is current:
1
This is the concept:
3


3. Seeing Saves and Deleting them
I currently don't know how many saves I have in my game, where they are located in my pc, what is the current score for each one and if I delete the behaviour would the behaviour be deleted in the computer.

My solution would get an answer for some of the questions I made and that saves and the respective score would appear when we press Ctrl+D



4. Ctrl+D isn't supposed to be enabled in the Windows exported version
The title says everything

5. Layers and ANIMATIONS for UI and Background
This could be so useful. For the recent lighting system and also hp bars and profiles pictures. a lot of things. Layers are useful everywhere. Background animations cause so much impact in games.

6. Complex Expressions
I would like expressions to have more than A B input, maybe an option to add extras when needed. When doing math with more than 2 variables it can get messy stringing the expressions together breaking equations to fit

7. Video player
Detailed cutscenes will be possible with this.

8. Private Sound Behaviour
Yes everyone can sneak in in the behaviours but if I bought a soundtrack or made my own and wouldn't want to people to steal it.

Comments

  • Multifilter sounds nice, because I could use it as a multitoggle switch, instead of just 2 toggles.
  • 5. Layers for user interface
  • I would like expressions to have more than A B input, maybe an option to add extras when needed. When doing math with more than 2 variables it can get messy stringing the expressions together breaking equations to fit
  • Added yours and added a few others that I forgot

    I like all these suggestions, and some of them are on the roadmap already. I think that the MultiFilter problem can be solved with a bundle though. Try this:

    Copy and paste the bundle into your behavior window, the click on it and select "Add to menu"
    {"behavior":{"nodes":[{"name":"MultiFilter","x":540,"y":256,"inputCount":1,"group":"","isMenuItem":false,"behaviorType":"logic.NodeGroup","outputCount":6,"id":"52441a5a85c71341"},{"name":"Bundle Input","x":90,"portId":"52441a5a85c71341i0","tag":"input","y":384,"inputCount":0,"group":"52441a5a85c71341","behaviorType":"logic.NodeGroupInput","outputCount":1,"id":"52446873fd519845"},{"name":"Bundle Output","x":630,"portId":"52441a5a85c71341o2","tag":"3","y":288,"inputCount":1,"group":"52441a5a85c71341","behaviorType":"logic.NodeGroupOutput","outputCount":0,"id":"5244a84edf007647"},{"name":"Bundle Output","x":630,"portId":"52441a5a85c71341o5","tag":"6","y":576,"inputCount":1,"group":"52441a5a85c71341","behaviorType":"logic.NodeGroupOutput","outputCount":0,"id":"5244e14317187d47"},{"name":"Filter","x":450,"gateVal":2,"y":192,"inputCount":2,"mode":"equal to","group":"52441a5a85c71341","behaviorType":"logic.logic.Filter","outputCount":2,"id":"52451660b8d8954e"},{"name":"Bundle Output","x":630,"portId":"52441a5a85c71341o0","tag":"1","y":96,"inputCount":1,"group":"52441a5a85c71341","behaviorType":"logic.NodeGroupOutput","outputCount":0,"id":"52448d2ffe01bd48"},{"name":"Bundle Output","x":630,"portId":"52441a5a85c71341o1","tag":"2","y":192,"inputCount":1,"group":"52441a5a85c71341","behaviorType":"logic.NodeGroupOutput","outputCount":0,"id":"52449bb3593bfc4a"},{"name":"Filter","x":450,"gateVal":4,"y":384,"inputCount":2,"mode":"equal to","group":"52441a5a85c71341","behaviorType":"logic.logic.Filter","outputCount":2,"id":"52452c752c46a448"},{"name":"Filter","x":450,"gateVal":6,"y":576,"inputCount":2,"mode":"equal to","group":"52441a5a85c71341","behaviorType":"logic.logic.Filter","outputCount":2,"id":"5245529314c9864d"},{"name":"Bundle Output","x":630,"portId":"52441a5a85c71341o3","tag":"4","y":384,"inputCount":1,"group":"52441a5a85c71341","behaviorType":"logic.NodeGroupOutput","outputCount":0,"id":"5244b312e2cfeb4b"},{"name":"Filter","x":450,"gateVal":1,"y":96,"inputCount":2,"mode":"equal to","group":"52441a5a85c71341","behaviorType":"logic.logic.Filter","outputCount":2,"id":"5244fa4f28dcbf40"},{"name":"Filter","x":450,"gateVal":5,"y":480,"inputCount":2,"mode":"equal to","group":"52441a5a85c71341","behaviorType":"logic.logic.Filter","outputCount":2,"id":"52453a257df86942"},{"name":"Filter","x":450,"gateVal":3,"y":288,"inputCount":2,"mode":"equal to","group":"52441a5a85c71341","behaviorType":"logic.logic.Filter","outputCount":2,"id":"5245213116c4b040"},{"name":"Bundle Output","x":630,"portId":"52441a5a85c71341o4","tag":"5","y":480,"inputCount":1,"group":"52441a5a85c71341","behaviorType":"logic.NodeGroupOutput","outputCount":0,"id":"5244d37c5d1d6949"}],"links":[{"input_id":"5244fa4f28dcbf40i0","output_id":"52446873fd519845o0"},{"input_id":"52449bb3593bfc4ai0","output_id":"52451660b8d8954eo0"},{"input_id":"5245213116c4b040i0","output_id":"52451660b8d8954eo1"},{"input_id":"5244b312e2cfeb4bi0","output_id":"52452c752c46a448o0"},{"input_id":"52453a257df86942i0","output_id":"52452c752c46a448o1"},{"input_id":"5244e14317187d47i0","output_id":"5245529314c9864do0"},{"input_id":"52448d2ffe01bd48i0","output_id":"5244fa4f28dcbf40o0"},{"input_id":"52451660b8d8954ei0","output_id":"5244fa4f28dcbf40o1"},{"input_id":"5244d37c5d1d6949i0","output_id":"52453a257df86942o0"},{"input_id":"5245529314c9864di0","output_id":"52453a257df86942o1"},{"input_id":"5244a84edf007647i0","output_id":"5245213116c4b040o0"},{"input_id":"52452c752c46a448i0","output_id":"5245213116c4b040o1"}],"v":"2"}}
    Does that give you what you need?
  • Yes, thank you it already helps and saves space. I suggested it because it needs a lot of clicks to do it. Not anymore because of the bundle but not for everyone.

    A question: Do the bundles have a limit? I already have a lot of them I wonder what happens when I get even more.
