    How can I assign an object/asset an appearance chance? Meaning, I would give an object a number as the probability (1 to 100) of it showing in a scene? This is a feature in BB2 but I'm not seeing a way to do it in BB3.

    Bumping! Would love to know how I can assign an appearance chance to an object such as a coin/powerup/etc.
    I assume Math.random would have to be used?

    You can use random node for that.
    For example, in character's node map, you set up tometihng like that:
    Start node -> Timer node -> Random node -> Spawn node (inside code, you modify spawn location).

    Would you mind explaining what the threshold attribute means/does in the random node? Trying to understand it fully so I can use it properly. Thank you!!

    Threshold is chance. 0.5 means 50/50 chance. And there are two outputs - "Over" and "Under". So, if it generates random number 0.125 for example, "Over" input is false, and "Under" output is true.
    If you want 10% chance, then threshold is 0.1, and must use "Under" output.
