    Hi guys,

    I'd like to make a game in which you can double jump and hit another button mid jump to spawn a platform, I'm quite new to Buildbox and I'm sure I'm missing something obvious...

    Essentially how can I create a platform that spawns in a set position from the character I've made with a button press?

    Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Josh

    Any suggestions? I'm totally desperate to get started on my game so even if this can't be achieved I'd love to hear it can't be done so I can think of something else x

    You can connect a platform to your character and use that to spawn platforms. I've done it before so when I hit.the button the character fires a moving platform that you can then jump on and use to get to places that you could not beforehand

    Thanks Josh that sounds about perfect, any idea how you connect the platform spawning to a button press?
