Reimplement a better paste-inside

kicktherabbit 2 years ago updated by Lazlo Bonin (Lead Developer) 6 months ago 3

Hey, 

I am not sure if it's a bug or a feature. ;-)  But in earlier version I could copy and paste a complete transition node, what made perfectly sense, if you need to override transitions. Now this isn't possible anymore. The paste possibily is gone (check right mouse). Is this intensional ?

Hi Kicktherabbit!

So this was indeed a regression from v.1.4, which removed (temporarily!) what is called "paste-inside". This is because the amount of work involved with events listening / live update made the operation unreliable and could potentially crash your game.

My plan is to reimplement it better, similar to the "Replace Unit" option in flow graphs. Connections would be preserved, along with default values, etc., and events would properly start/stop listening recursively.

Sorry about that, I'll try to fix it ASAP!

Not a thing. Just wanted to report it, in case its unintensional. :-) Thx for the feedback.

yes, we need this ASAP ^_^
