This code works for me :json

Code: Select all

"on click fun":[
  {
    "actions":[{"type":"disaster","id":"nuke"}]
  }
]
So how does your code look like?

It works for me. Set speed to max. Build a 6x6 road enclosure(max!), totally enclosed. Build the wandering blue animals inside! (They're nuclear enabled). Don't let any out! Set some on fire. Wait til the animation freezes. Wait a bit longer!

Code: Select all

"on event fun":[
        {"actions":[{"type":"burn","x":0,"y":1}],"always":true,"ignore success":true},
        {"actions":[{"type":"burn","x":0,"y":-1}],"always":true,"ignore success":true},
        {"actions":[{"type":"burn","x":1,"y":0}],"always":true,"ignore success":true},
        {"actions":[{"type":"burn","x":-1,"y":0}],"always":true,"ignore success":true}                
      ],   
If you are spawning rioters on the roads from a 1x1 building..

Copy the actions and change the 1s to 2s etc for greater radius. You have to remember it might hit a big building. If the spawning building is bigger than 1x1, you have to add its width to the positive x and y values to avoid setting itself on fire.

@former member I think you would have to do it the other way: The buildings that should change should do it in their own fun code.

@former member I'm not sure why or how to add it. After all, the system isn't meant to be used that way.

Lobby, it may be too late for this question but what does the disaster action do?
Also in the action index, can you specify, explain in-depth what does toasts do?
Thank you for your time.
I rarely make plugins now, but I still make them in spare time.
Disclaimer Please no request, I'm busy with real life stuff, I hope you understand ;)

For disaster action, it summons chosen disaster (earthquake, meteor, nukes, etc.) at random or specified location.

Code: Select all

"fun":[
{
"actions":[
{
"type":"disaster",  //Makes fun disastrous
"id":"nuke",  //Shoots nuke at x and y   \/ look down there\/
"x":10,
"y":-10  //Specifies location
}
]
}
]
I'm not lazy, I'm motivated to do nothing!
...blame lobby for that

Does it apply to crime as well?
Sorry for asking the repeated questions, jusy need some confirmation.
Also, if you did not specify location, it would happen at a random place, yes?

Yes, it works also for crime :bc

Toasts are especially useful for debugging. It's basically a text that is shown for a short amount of time and can be used to provide some information. See here for more details: https://developer.android.com/guide/top ... ers/toasts

Usage is quite simple:

Code: Select all

"actions":[{"type":"toast","id":"Hi, I am some text!"}]
If you want to print the value of a variable $myvar on the screen you can use string interpolation:

Code: Select all

"actions":[{"type":"toast","id":"The value of the variable is ${$myvar}"}]
The content of ${*} will be evaluated at runtime and can therefore be used to show the value of variables.
