Default Can I go from world to world? - 05-04-2010, 09:34 PM

Hello to everyone.

I am a very young user of Alice but very excited of its abilities. I have some questions.
First of all is there something I can do to go from one world to an other?
For example if I select a character can it lead me to its world or I have to make a class for everything?
The second question has to do with the background. I have a first image for my world with the background being grass. I select a character and I ant to change then the background. The character has its own class. How can I change the background in different classes?

Thank you in advance

Unfortunately, the backgrounds are objects that can only be accessed from the start of the world, so you have to save each ground object as a class object, then import it into the world in which you want it to appear as a secondary background.

I want to make the background that is grass to sea. You are telling to create a background as sea with everything I want into and save it as a class? Because I cannot save all of my background as one class but every object different.

So you're saying that you want the sea and the grass in one world, right? Then save either the grass only or the sea only as a class, then import it into a world with the opposite type of ground selected. If you want to include other objects, that's fine, but you'll have to make them invisible when you switch backgrounds (set their isShowing property to false).

I thought that the SuperSS.a2w Template solved that problem. It should still be out there somewhere.

How do you save a background as a class? I don't see an export option for a background. Do I have to open it in another program first?

Click the background, then right-click the name of the highlighted ground object in the object list on the left side of the screen, then select Save Object... from the popup list. Name it and click save on the navigation window that will pop up, and you'll get a .a2c file that you can import into any world with the File>Import option.

Another thing you could do is make the sea your template and then add the Ground or Ground2 object to your world. Both of those objects can be found under Environments.


Out of the 7 schools I applied for, Carnegie Mellon is the only one that didn't accept me. They wait listed me, but I hold no grudges. Alice is awesome and Claytronics , om*g. Some one should figure out how to put these two projects together. It would revolutionize not only the gaming industry, but the world... scratch that, the Universe... scratch that, the Multiverse!
