Already a week since the last release? Time to let you guys know what's coming next :D
HUDs: Combatant, Turn Order The new Equipment HUD element type is available for all HUDs involving combatants. It'll display a combatant's equipment parts and the equipped weapons/armors - either list all or only a selected one.
Game Settings Bestiary The equipment of enemies can now also be learned and displayed (with the new HUD element type).
Status Values Normal type status values can now use other Normal type SV to define their minimum and maximum value. The selected status value's current value will be used as minimum or maximum value. This allows things like flexible max values, e.g. for increasing the allowed MaxHP with special equipment.
Menu Screens: Status Value Upgrade The new option Show No Upgrade Req. will display status upgrades for status values that have upgrades, but aren't available due to requirements - can be used to e.g. display maxed out status values.
Event System: Function Steps The new Close Menu Screen step closes either a selected or all open menu screens.
Combatants: Movement Settings The Use Position Change setting forces the combatants actual speed to be calculated through the change of the combatants position each frame. Use this setting if you encounter problems with movement animations (which are most of the time because of the speed not being set correctly).
Combatants The Set Object Name setting will set the name of the spawned game object to the actual name of the combatant (e.g. 'Evil Pants C').
Battle Notifications The notifications (e.g. status value damage/refresh) can now also fade/blink other properties of the renderer materials or set a float - just like the fade/blink object steps in events.
Combatant Spawners The new Set Scale options allow setting the scale of spawned combatants.
Weapons, Armors The Viewer Name setting optionally allows naming the spawned equipment object on equipment viewers instead of leaving the default spawn name (e.g. 'Prefab(Clone)'). Use this setting to unify the name of spawned equipment objects for easier child object access in events.
Game States When setting the Menu Screen game state to Yes, you'll be able to optionally add menu screens that must be opened for the state to be valid. One of the added screens has to be open.
Equipment Viewers The new Combatant in Battle option will only display equipment if the combatant itself is in battle, not only the game. The option is available when setting In Battle game state to Yes or Ignore.
Event System: Function Steps The new Start Item Collector step will start an item collector attached to an event object (e.g. an actor). The event continues after the item collection finished. You can use this to enhance your item collection or item boxes with additional animations, dramatic camera effects (e.g. zelda) and other stuff.
Event System: Spawn Steps The Spawn Player and Destroy Player steps can now also spawn/destroy other members of the player group.
Battle Settings: Auto Join The new Join Running Battle setting allows combatants to also join a running battle (not only at the start) when coming within range.
Battle System: Move AI When allowing the move AI, you can use the new Block In Battle setting to still block the AI of those who are fighting in battle. This enables you to have not participating combatants still running around (and joining the battle with auto join) while the fighting ones stand at their spots.
Event System Using Member actors of unspawned player group members can now be used for all event steps that don't require a game object (e.g. status steps). Previously, those steps couldn't be used with not spawned members.
Fade/Blink Objects All fading/blinking objects (e.g. battle notifications or fade/blink event steps) will now use the color property of SpriteRenderer (Unity 2D) when fading the color, instead of the material's color.
Variable Condition Templates Create templates for variable conditions in Base/Control > Variable Condition Templates in the ORK Framework editor. You can use those templates in other variable conditions as a single condition.
Variable Conditions The new Condition Type setting defines what a single condition will check. Either checks a single Variable (like it has been until now), a bunch of defined Conditions or use a variable condition Template. This allows creating more complex checks like '(condition1 && condition2) || condition3'.
Variable Conditions: float New float check types available. Range Inclusive checks if the current value of a float game variable is between two defined values, including the values. Range Exclusive checks if the value is between two defined values, excluding the values.
Event System: Function Steps The new Function to Variable step allows strong the return value of a called function into a game variable. Naturally only supports string, bool, int/float and Vector3 return values :)
Combatants: Battle Animations The new Join Battle Animation setting is used when a combatant joins a running battle (using Auto Join) to animate him going to his position. If not used, the combatant will simply be placed on his spot.
Battle Settings, Classes, Combatants You can now optionally define different battle menus for the individual battle system types.
Text Codes The new Float with Format text code allows defining a text format for the displayed float variable. E.g. the format 00.0 will make the value 1 to 01.0.
Equipment Viewers The new Preview settings can be used to preview a selected weapon or armor on the equipment viewer.
Editor The editor will no longer automatically close when entering play mode. At least in my tests that didn't cause problems any longer :)
HUDs: Combatant, Turn Order The new Display Requirements settings in Combatant and Turn Order HUD elements can be used to bind displaying a HUD element to status requirements and variable conditions.
HUDs: Display Conditions The Only While Key setting (available when using a toggle key) can be used to only display a HUD while the toggle key is valid (i.e. while it's pressed when using a Hold input key).
As always: more as it's coming in :) Release end of next week.
