Creating toybox with custom toys
#1 02-10-2016 
Hi guys,

I've been trying to create a toybox with custom toys, instead of the regular Maxis toys, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to do it...
What I've found so far is a BHAV called "Create Toy (sets toyBox --> ToyObjID)", with lines 'Create new object instance'. My hunch is that replacing these GUIDs will link the toybox to the custom toys. However, I can't figure out how to localize this BHAV properly. I know it's called by a BHAV "Event - Get Toy from Box", but that one in turn isn't called by the pie menu functions, or by the Main/Init BHAVs.

I've cracked open Lee's garage, as it does something similar, and found the same thing. It's a mystery to me how these Event BHAVs work. I also noticed Lee edited the object animation text strings to include the unique instance number [name-date-randomnumber].

Could someone please enlighten me about Events, what they do and how I can change them? Or point me in the right direction? Thank you Smile

It's called by the animate primitive. You put the instance number of the Event BHAV in boxes 4 and 5. And backwards, of course, like with GUIDs.

Thank you so much! I know this is ridiculously late, but I never managed to figure it out until now. Thanks for providing the vital clue Smile

I'll be happy to test it for you, when you're finished!Smile I'm getting tired of the current offerings.


Sorry, that is a members only option
