Default Alice 3 - How to copy an object - 07-07-2015, 01:17 PM

In the Alice 2 versions it was possible to make a copy of an object with the copy button found in the top right corner of the scene editor. So far I haven't discovered how to copy an object in Alice 3. Does anyone know how to do that?

No Easy Way-
The zipped world below contains a single Loki character with a couple of built-in methods. Load and run it to make sure it works OK.
1) Click on "Scene" Tab.
2) Click on Loki's Button in the "type hierarchy"
3) Click on the "Save to Class" button.
4) Save with new name to MyClasses.
5) Click on "Setup Scene" button.
6) Click on "My Classes" Tab.
7) Drag your saved class into the world.
8) You'll receive a warning regarding built-in methods.
9) Unclick the checkbox in the error pane.
10) Click the finish button.

You should now have two Loki's with the same built-in Methods, and you can easily add more. At this time you can put them all in an array, and experiment with the "for each in" and "each in_together" commands. it's complicated, but can save a lot of repetitive coding.

Oh Yeah, I forgot-
If you try this with one of the classes that let you set the body shape, skin tone, costume, face, etc., you will be required to go through the design process for each one you add.
