    Hey @particles

    How're you man?
    This thread is exclusively addressed to you.

    Do you have any idea of how to Upgrade @Skyhub Games -> Character System Node at https://www.buildbox.com/forum/index.php?threads/bb3-character-system.17779/

    More details on that from @Hanomax here:


    What I find is that this "character system" is simply re-skinning the character to a different 3D Model of a character and that's it. It's quite a limitation since we cannot customize the character in any way. If I have 20 characters, they all will have the same death animation, I mean it's very very limited. It's a great node to re-skin characters, but we cannot customize them.

    @particles can we make a START node for each character we unlock so we can customize each character's ability, etc. ?

    @PunkPuffin -> what do you think?

    If we get this nailed, it is going to be a step forward for BB games, you know!
    Thanks guys for contributing making all of this work!

    @Skyhub Games -> you mentioned that you already have done that already?

    @Tars Tarkas -> you have something similar in Sling Away if I am not mistaken.
    Looking forward for anyone's response.

    Best,
    Itzo

    Whatever we implement by ourself is still going to be messy and limited? Let BB Team come with a proper system for this.

    For the different deaths you should have a different If Collide with the enemy for each character, just ad them to the character state node

    Interesting, thanks man. Did not occur to me :) Do you think is possible with this setup to add different character trails?
