    Hi Friends

    i have 3 world so far planning on making 100 worlds
    my game is progression game similar to color bump.
    meaning I collect points for hitting Friendly's and die and restart for hitting enemies.
    I cross a finish line my UI prompts a restart or continue which links to my new world.

    questions
    1. is it better to build scenes vs worlds for a progression type game?
    2. If using worlds how can i have progression saved. say a user hits world 10, puts his phome away comes back later at night, he starts back on world 10 with all his world points saved.
    3. if u using scenes same thing as #
    4. can i start scene one on x, y and z @ 1
    and start scene two the same position?

    Sounds like an awesome idea!

    I would recommend using scenes as the size would be much smaller compared to worlds.

    if you used worlds, you could create global counter and each would adds a points than you could set it up to only go to the world that matches the global counter.

    for scenes, you could use checkpoints, or once again you could use a global counter.

    Ok i think Ill stick with scenes and checkpoints.

    question with scenes real quick.

    1. Can I change the background and plane color for each scene?
    2. Scene one starts at X 0, Y 1, Z 0.
    can scene two start at X 0, Y1, Z 0?
    3. are the start and end lines for scenes only?

    thank you so much for your insight it really helps!
