A typical use case is to find out which kind of token has been touched.
There are several solutions for this problem:
1. adding an attribute¶
You can add an attribute to all your objects, e.g. with the name
player2 = miniworldmaker.Token() wall = miniworldmaker.Token() player2.token_type = "actor" wall.token_type = "wall" @player1.register def on_detect_token(self, other_token): if other_token.token_type == "actor": pass # do something elif other_token.token_type == "wall": pass # do something else
With this access, you must give every object a
to each object.
Otherwise you also have to check if it exists at all, if you don’t want your whole program to crash otherwise. crashes.
This can be done with:
if other_token.token_type and other_token.token_type == "actor":
If each token has the attribute
token_type, then you can omit this
omit this query.
2. using lists¶
You can add objects to a list to check if the touched object is in the list. touched object is in this list.
walls =  player2 = miniworldmaker.Token() wall = miniworldmaker.Token() walls.append(wall) @player1.register def on_detect_token(self, other_token): if other_token.token_type in walls: pass # do something
With this access you have to make sure that deleted objects are removed from the list are removed from the list, e.g. in the following way:
If you work with classes, the miniworldmaker will do some work for you
work for you, because it can now recognize which child class of
token of token` an object is.
Here you can add the following method to your class:
def on_detecting_[class_name](self, other)
# The other class has the name Torch def on_detecting_torch(self, torch): print("Sensing torch") # ...
