Post news RSS Streamlining Visual Programming - First Pass

We've started pimp'n up the visual programming flow. More clicks, less typing, without losing the power of the console. The video shows the first pass in action.

Posted by on

This first pass includes a quicker workflow with mouse control, which should lower the barrier to mastering the commands. The console is still active when clicking, and even updates as you work, so you can switch at any time between console and mouse clicks.
The next phase will include more goodies in the value-editing department. And a way to preview the signal waves between inputs and outputs. The spawning system will have a very similar feel to this.

All of this will be in the next build, one week from now.

This definately improves the speed of technically building your robot! The next thing I want is an item spawn menu, and/or the ability to spawn multiple items at once

Example:

spawn jet 2

this spawns two jets.

spawn jet seven

this spawns seven jets.

and so on and so forth.
