Skylines Actions system and presets are the core to your projects dynamic objects. Many Actions can be used in interesting combinations for varying effects, but some times you need help to get the most out of them.

Entity preset editor plus some else...

Hi all,
i know that the new release is on fire right now ... ;)
but wanted some lighting on few points, take your time just curious on some...
  • Entity preset editor: How can i delete an action attached to an entity already set ?
  • Scene editor : Pan screen with the center mouse button will help a lot, otherwise is a way to ?
  • Environment editor : Time of day is it working or complex ? What means the timeframe cursor ? and time speed not possibly divide ?
  • Material editor : material names of the object loaded not showed properly (list instead)
  • Material editor : loading a dds need to always expand the file filter and it not remember the last choice, annoying
  • Material editor : loosing pictures when switching through material list, just cosmetic though.
  • general : when a scene is loaded and we try to load it again because we don't want the changes => crash

ok that is all
thank you for your great game engine, really enjoy it.

Ok lets see:

Entity preset editor: How can i delete an action attached to an entity already set ?

Select the entity and [RMB] open action editor. Select the action to delete in the right hand list, and click the remove button.

Scene editor : Pan screen with the center mouse button will help a lot, otherwise is a way to ?

Yes this has been requested before so we will move up its priority.

Environment editor : Time of day is it working or complex ? What means the timeframe cursor ? and time speed not possibly divide ?

Ah this is in development, it can be used but will be unstable. Wont be long before we have a look at the other environment tools ;)

Material editor : material names of the object loaded not showed properly (list instead)

I dont think this field has been activated yet! added it to the to-do list

Material editor : loading a dds need to always expand the file filter and it not remember the last choice, annoying

Added to the bugs list. We will have a look at this for the next release.

Material editor : loosing pictures when switching through material list, just cosmetic though.

Hmm not sure what this one is we will keep out eye open for a pattern that may be causing this. Or do you have a set of events that cause this?

general : when a scene is loaded and we try to load it again because we don't want the changes => crash

This is common although we are slowly locating the bugs that cause some of the crashes. Generally any scene that contains vegetation will currently need Skyline to be restarted as for some reason it doesn't free resources. The version 0.6.4 has reduce the number of crashes in this area.

Hope this helps ;)
