  • New anchor offset property field in property panel

    • Automatic centering of empty anchor points

      • Click the Auto-Center button

        • If there are child objects, the empty anchor point is centered in the enclosing box created by all child objects, and the XYZ property value of the empty anchor point is changed to the XYZ position parameter of the center point relative to the current Transform coordinate.
          [Image]

        • If there is no child object, the position of the empty anchor point remains unchanged and the XYZ parameter defaults to 0

    • Manual offset of the null anchor point

      • The XYZ parameter can be changed by entering the parameter or by dragging the parameter to manually adjust the position of the empty anchor point, when the parameter is changed, the position of the axes in the project will change simultaneously with the parameter change of the empty anchor point
    • Vertex adsorption

      • After clicking the vertex adsorption button, the interface highlights all the enclosing box vertices and center points with red spheres, and the mouse becomes a cross.

        • When the mouse is close to any highlight point, the red sphere turns blue to indicate that the user can select it, and when the user clicks on it, the empty anchor point is shifted to the selected vertex position, and the XYZ parameter of the anchor point shift of the empty anchor point changes to the relative position property value of the current empty anchor point shift position relative to the Transform coordinate.
          [Image]
      • When in Vertex Adsorption mode, two exit rules are included

        • Click ESC to exit

        • Exit with any vertex selected

【GamePlay】

[Camera Preset Function - Camera Mode]

In order to facilitate the quick selection of the required viewpoint, the new [Camera Mode] function, developers can quickly select the camera mode in the new drop-down options in the camera properties panel; after selection, the properties panel will be modified in accordance with the preset value refresh.

The camera mode can also be selected in a script, e.g.

this.fireButton.onJoyStickDown().add(() => {
    //Press the joystick to enter the first-person aiming view, and turn on the real effect
    GamePlay.getCurrentPlayer().character.cameraSystem.switchCameraMode(0,true)
    GamePlay.getCurrentPlayer().character.cameraSystem.cameraFOV=70
    this.fireButton.setInputScale(new Type.Vector2(0.2, 0.2))
});

this.fireButton.onJoyStickUp().add(() => {
    // Release the joystick to fire the bullet and restore the third-person over-the-shoulder view with realistic effects on          
    Events.dispatchLocal("FIRE_CLICK_Gun");
    GamePlay.getCurrentPlayer().character.cameraSystem.switchCameraMode(4,true)
    GamePlay.getCurrentPlayer().character.cameraSystem.cameraFOV=90
    this.fireButton.setInputScale(new Type.Vector2(0.5, 0.5))
});

CameraMode - Enumeration (CameraMode)

Name Enumeration Value Description

FirstPerson 0 First-person view camera effect

ThirdPerson 1 Third-person view camera effect

TopDownAngle 2 The effect of the camera with a 45 degree angle of view

Default 3 Default effect

TPSOverShoulderAngle 4 Third-person over-the-shoulder view of the camera effect

FPSShootingAngle 5 First-person shooting perspective camera effect

In addition, to make it easier to see which properties have been modified and refreshed after modifying [Camera Mode], all of the following relevant camera properties have been exposed in the panel.

  • Camera transform - relative position

    • Function Description: That is, the camera offset relative to the default position, the property and the camera position offset property effect is the same
  • Spring Arm Transform-Relative Position

    • The camera is connected to the character through the spring-arm peg, and when rotating the view, the camera rotates around the spring-arm peg; this property has the same effect as the camera position offset property
Camera Transform-Relative Position (0,100,0)Spring arm transformation - relative position (0,0,0)
Camera Transform-Relative Position (0,100,0)Spring arm transformation - relative position (0,0,0)
Camera transform-Relative position (0,0,0) Spring arm transform-Relative position (0,100,0)
Camera transform-Relative position (0,0,0) Spring arm transform-Relative position (0,100,0)
  • Spring arm transformation-Relative rotation

    • Function: Set the angle of the spring arm, that is, the angle of the camera relative to the spring arm hanging point, dragging the screen in the game to turn the perspective is equivalent to dynamically adjusting this property, so this property is only in effect when the camera orientation mode is fixed orientation and follow orientation, used to create a top-down game; camera transformation - relative rotation is different from this property is only to change the camera angle, not to change the angle of the spring arm
Spring arm transform - relative rotation (0,-30,0)Camera transformation - relative rotation (0,0,0)
Spring arm transform - relative rotation (0,-30,0)Camera transformation - relative rotation (0,0,0)
Spring arm transform - relative rotation (0,0,0) Camera transform-Relative rotation (0,-30,0)
Spring arm transform - relative rotation (0,0,0) Camera transform-Relative rotation (0,-30,0)
  • Turn on the real effect

    • Function description: If the real effect is turned on, the camera will follow the head of the character model; if the real effect is turned off, the camera will follow the movement of the capsule body, which is used to make the first-view game
Turn off the real effect
Turn off the real effect
Turn on the real effect
Turn on the real effect
  • Fixed camera Z-axis direction

    • Function Description: Fix the camera coordinates on the Z-axis, for example, when the character is jumping, the camera will not follow the character to change the Z-axis position, used to make top-view angle games
Turn off fixed camera Z-axis direction
Turn off fixed camera Z-axis direction
Turn on fixed camera Z-axis direction
Turn on fixed camera Z-axis direction

【MWAsset Optimization】

From the resource module to optimize the mobile side of the entry time, mobile side to remove the SQLite call, to avoid frequent io caused by time-consuming, the resources used in the project collected to the Asset_Data_List and Local_Asset_List, to avoid requesting resource information time-consuming, speed up the speed of entry into the game.

【Disconnect and Reconnect】

Quit the game by clicking the MGS hoverball, and confirm that the game will not be disconnected again after starting again.

【Frame Rate Alarm】

Add an alarm for the difference between frames, when the current fps is more than 2 times the average of the first 3 frames and less than 12 and 8 frames, a log will be printed.

[API-New]: Get the default picture quality grading interface for cell phones

Global.getDefaultGFXCPULevel() //Get the default CPU picture quality level of the phone
Global.getDefaultGFXGPULevel() //Get the phone's default GPU image quality level

【API-Optimization】: Merged objects support clone

In the editor object tree, the merged object supports dynamic cloning by means of clone().

protected onStart(): void {
    let a=MWCore.GameObject.find("1344DA334A3B36BE957BC1889FF2DC88");
    let b=a.clone();
    b.location=new Type.Vector(0,0,100);
}
