Is it possible to show Scene Object specific information like Name, Description etc, inside Floating Text Event node?
So when player clicks on the Interaction Scene Object -> Event is executed where Floating text is shown with more information about this Scene object.

  • No, that's not possible.

  • Maybe not using floating text, maybe there are some other features that could be used to achieve something similar ?
    Main idea is Scene object description will be shown after player actually perform interaction with a Scene object.
  • I was trying this by using object variables, and managed to do this by using Debug event node that prints object string variable to the Unity Console.
    However I wasn't be able to pass this variable to HUD or any GUI to actually show it in the game.

    Okay, I've managed to do this by writing new custom event node. Basically I took Flying text node and updated few lines from DebugStep node (code that replace text codes with object text). Looks pretty nice so far.

  • Good job :)
    An alternative would be to show a dialogue (which can use actor text codes) and immediately continuing with the event (i.e. disabling the wait option).

    Hm, haven't thought about using dialogue, yeah I think that could work too, thanks :)

    Another thing I wanted to ask is about showing which requirement failed in ability tooltip. For example:
    - no mana to cast a spell
    - no certain item in the inventory to use ability
    - required weapon is not equipped
    -> as the result ability can't be used -> is there a way to show message to user about specific requirement that failed in the tooltip?

  • I don't think there are.
