How can you get values (numbers, names) from users into Alice? Perhaps when a character asks for the user's name?

How can Alice provide Output to, say, a calculation? Can you get a character to Say the value of a variable?

First, what you need is a couple of the world level functions (see attached - there are a few of them ).

"Ask user for ---" will get your input and "--- as a string" will convert it to string format if it wasn't one already.

Two options to display the string on screen while the world is running are the "say " command and using the string as the text in a 3D text object. (Anyone know any others ?) Also, the "Print" command (drag up from the bottom) will print almost any type of variable in a small text box below the screen.
