15. Implementing Game Logic and Using Properties

<< RETURN TO THE PREVIOUS SECTION

As you already know properties are used as a "material" for applicaton logic. In order to use custom properties you should:

  • Make a manual property file an xml-file which defines your property and all necessary parameters.
    Source code (XML)
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <property version="2.7.3.0" name="my_node_base" parent="node_base" manual="1">
    		<parameter name="my_param1">1</parameter>
    		<parameter name="my_param2" type="string" my_state1="1">sometext</parameter>
    </property>
  • Manage properties (states, parameter values, etc.) using the Property class and assign them to objects.
    Source code (C++)
    // getting a pointer to the property manager
    properties = Properties::get();
    
    // inheriting new properties
    properties->findManualProperty("my_node_base")->inherit("new_property_1");
    properties->findManualProperty("my_node_base")->inherit("new_property_2");
    
    // getting pointers to the property named "new_property_1"
    PropertyPtr new_prop1 = properties->findManualProperty("new_property_1");
    
    //setting the values of property parameters
    new_prop1->getParameterPtr("my_param1")->setValue(0);
    new_prop1->getParameterPtr("my_param2")->setValue("text 1");
    
    // adding the new_property_1 to a node (ObjectMeshDynamicPtr)
    object1->addProperty("new_property_1");
    
    //changing the value of my_parameter of the property assigned to the node
    object1->getProperty(0)->getParameterPtr("my_param1")->setValue(1);

Additional information:

Project Progress#

In our project we are going to use properties to select objects and highlight them by changing their material. Here's when we are going to utilize our mouse input handler, getObjectUnderMouseCursor and selectObject methods from previous sections.

First, we are going to inherit a property from the standard node_base and add 2 parameters:

  • selected - to indicate if the object is currently selected and we must highlight it.
  • material - to store the name of material assigned to the surface of the object in order to reset it when selection changes.
So, please use the following code and save it as "my_property.prop" in the data folder of your application.
Source code (XML)
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<property version="2.7.3.0" name="my_node_base" parent="node_base" manual="1">
	<parameter name="selected">0</parameter>
	<parameter name="material" type="string">sometext</parameter>
</property>

In the AppWorldLogic.h file, we add a pointer to store previously selected object (to reset back its material), declare our clearProperties method to perform properties cleanup.

Source code (C++)
// AppWorldLogic.h
	
/* .. */

class AppWorldLogic : public Unigine::WorldLogic {
	
public:

/* .. */

private:


	Unigine::Properties *properties;
	
/* .. */

	Unigine::ObjectPtr old_selection;	// pointer to previously selected object
	
/* .. */
	int clearProperties();

/* .. */


};

In the AppWorldLogic.cpp file let us:

  • add a code getting a pointer to the Property Manager to the AppWorldLogic::init() method.
  • implement clearProperties method and insert it into the AppWorldLogic::shutdown() method.
  • make some changes to our addMeshToScene method to initialize properties of created object
  • make some changes to our selectObject function to manage previously selected object
  • add second parameter when calling the selectObject function in the AppWorldLogic::update() method.
  • add some code to our updateObjects method in order to highlight currently selected object.
  • change the removeMeshFromScene in order to check if we remove currently selected object to handle the situation correctly.
