Lightbulb suggestion for Alice 3 by Naseem serhan - 07-03-2009, 11:20 AM

I found many problems using Alice 2 especially using the editor area because it contains DO TOGETHER and stuff like that, and it doesn’t has an exact time organism like you can’t start order2 when order 1 is half done for example , just you can start it before or together or after only.
I suggest adding another box separated from the editor area called time line. Unlike the editor area which is vertical the time line is horizontal. For example each 1 cm to the right, 1 second in the world. Also it contains like the music bar 5 lines to add orders with a + and a – to add lines or remove just in case.
Using this suggestion we can make the world very accurate without using bars like DO TOGETHER and other stuff and adding the ability of starting an order while the other is half done.
So now we can use the editor area for programming and the time line for making some scenes.
I hope my suggestion works and if you use it in this program tell me because I want to know if I changed this great program because it means a lot for me.

Actually, *ahem*, you can start order 2 while order 1 is happening *ahem* *ahem*.

I thought it'd be quite obvious that you'd just surround the 2 (or 3 or 4 or whatever) orders in a do together, and add a do in order to each one, and a simple *ahem* very simple wait method that varies for each one.

Using this *ahem* obvious method *ahem* you would easily, *ahem* very easily allow an order to run while another one is running.

Simple as this (lol at my rant to someone who hasn't been on in months):

Could've made that a little nicer, bunny...

But he is right, it's actually pretty easy to do if you know how long your methods are...

Of course, it's not like that timeline's a bad idea...

Then again, it'll probably have problems with if/else and while commands and events...

And I should really stop ending all my sentences in ellipses...

But oh well...


Thank you for taking the time to read this signature. This signature loves you.

Noticed he hasn't been on in months, so I just decided to post whatever.

The thread is relatively old, so I figured what the heck.

It's not like he'll notice...
I mean, after he's been gone for such a long time...
I bet he's forgotten about it by now...
Copying Densetsu and whatnot...
