Need help! Final due Monday!!!
1 Attachment(s)
I have been working on a project from the Alice book and have run into a couple of problems.
Snowman is trying to go home to igloo and if he gets within 3m of a tree he goes back 10m.
Problem #1-I have formatted a list that list all the pine trees and it does not work properly.
Problem #2-The ramps that can enable the snowman to go faster do not work either.

I am at a lost and I may decide to change my project if I can't get this to work properly.

Well that was silly. Right click your event "When the world starts" and convert to "While the world is running". Place your method in the During box.
Y'see there's a difference between 'when' and 'while'. When is instantaneous, it does an action at a specific time. While has actual length, so it does actions for as long as whatever activates the while function is true.

Thank you for the reply. I changed it according to your instructions.
If I am dealing with more than one ramp/tree, how can I get the list to incorporate that? Because I have planted my list inside my code, but do not know how to properly execute.

I guess I should include the modified code

My mouse is broken :| By the way, the first method you had was fine. All you have to do is make a list of objects, preferably on the World scale and make a For All Together.

I figured it out at 3 in the morning. But now I have a START button that needs to be pressed before the game begins and that is my little problem I am trying to solve now, any suggestions please help if ya can. Also have to setup a timer and a point system for each ramp that is hit.

I believe I have hit a road block, my pineTree method is no longer working. Any suggestions?

Gee, that post sure was relevant and added a lot to the conversation. Not.
