ActionScript 3.0 :: IsoMetric Grid - Dynamically Draw Out An Isometric Grid
Jun 11, 2011
I'm trying to dynamically draw out an isometric grid but I'm hitting a few problems, currently I'm using a matrix transformation to get the grid to look more isometric that tile based but it has it's problems so I want to add the grid with out using the matrix transformations. currently I have..
I tried to draw it out using Sin ,Cos and Tan functions to try to set the coordinates but it didn't behave like I had expected,
How to snap a shape to an isometric grid? The grey piece is draggable and when you release it it should snap to the grid. I know how to snap it to a regular grid but to a isometric grid is imposible I think.
I am currently creating a game similar to cafe world, farmville etc (social game). Would like to know how could I make an object move in an isometric direction when my mouse move. For example, when I want to build a house, I click on the house build button, and when my mouse move, I want my house object (stored in the library) to be move together with my mouse in an isometric direction. To give you all a better impression of the solution i am looking for, click on this link for a sketch: [URL]. So I want something like only when my mouse move 20 units more than the original mouse position, then my house item should move to the next grid.
I am currently working on a very simple isometric3d game with a hero to move to mouse click position, using path-finding. I am trying to code everything myself step by step,as a beginner , i am well aware of asolib3d but I don't want to use it...I have read tutorials and few books I completely done with my isometric3d map. i create my path finding A-star class which is working perfectly with 2d grid tiles, but when i try to use it with isometric3d grid world it doesn't work properly.
my character movement is not correct. If hero position=0,0 and I click 0,10 on my iso grid instead of moving down he will move on the right side. If I am in the middle and I click on the left he will move right. and like few steps for where it supposes to stop... my pathfinding is ok in 2d but isometric the movement is weird...
i am creating a isometric game looks something like farm ville and city ville..i almost done everything. but but problem is only with sorting depth. find the attached .fla. this code is working in certain situations but not every time.
I'm trying to generate an isometric grid via code using kirupa's tutorial but it's not quite working correctly as I'm trying to convert it. I am trying to generate a 5 x 5 grid with a unique coordinate to each square, but I can only get a row to form with the coordinates showing x = 5 and y = 5 for each square of the single row. There is also an unclickable square in the corner. Here is my code:
I'm currently working with the OLAPDataGrid component and got stuck at a relatively simple task: I want to style the last row of the grid differently from the rest, so my cell item renderer needs to know whether he's rendering the last row with content in the overall grid, including those rows currently not rendered because they are outside the visible grid space. AdvancedGridListData's rowIndex property only gets me the row index of the renderer relative to the range of visible grid rows, i.e. when I scroll down the grid, a data item with an index greater than 0 gets the rpw index = 0.
I need to create a simple multiplication grid where children will fill the grid. Its an empty grid at the begining, when they start the time start as well.Its a grid of 10 x 10. when they enter the last number, the grid should show what they did wrong and the time they spend. It's an idea of how it could work but if anyone has something that looks like this.
I want to make a square grid of fixed side length but varying grid number using code.That is, the number of grids should be specified by the user (say 3*3) and after pressing a button, the stage should be broken into 3*3 grids.I don't want any code, just a method on how to do it. I have tried it by using simple loops but the method just fails for no reason I can figure.
Whenever I add paddingRight to a column in the flex grid, it adds the padding to the header as well.Is anyone familiar with how I can add paddingRight just to the column and not to the header? Below is the column code where I was specifying the padding.
I'm currently using actionscript 3.0 to make a simple game. I'm currently working on a platforming game.I'm at a complete loss to a lot of the draw functions, so I wanted tI want to know how I can DRAW A GRID. That's it. A simple grid where I tell it, the grid is (550 X 400) pixels and each sqaure is 20X20 pixels empty.The code that I tried didn't work:
I really like the thumbnail gallery for its simplicity and beauty. But I would like to ad or vertical scroller (I'm unable to find it here too, maybe I'm blind, just I'm more at the end of my seeking options) or a make a grid thumbnails, that will show 2 columns of thumbs and 5 pictures in each columns, then under the 2 columns i would like to ad a sort of arrow or button that if my gallery have more then 10 pictures it will go on the next thumbnail list. I'm not looking for any extra fading effects or special movements. Just would love to have a single thumbnail grid on side, with option to have lists of thumbnails by 10 if there is more then 10 pictures or so.
I'm trying to create a grid where the users can 'draw' across it and change the colors of the grid squares to a chosen color.In the following code, I'm creating the grid with squares. I've got the functionality 'working', but it's only working on the last square instanced.How do I get it to work on all the squares, not just the last one?
I have a mx:Grid component in my flex application. But I would like to resize it by clicking and dragging in the border. This component doesn't allow doing that.I want to put a panel in each gridItem of this Grid component and resize it.
I'm building a small editor that allows users to place electrical components onto a grid so that they can see how electricity works. I have built a grid using an array and for loops and attach movieclips dynamically to that grid. What I want the moviclips to do is to look in the four spaces either side of itself i.e. up, down,left and right.I have managed to pull the grid coordinates out of the grid which enables me to tell the clip which grid space to look at but have been unable to successfully get the code to work.Here is my code:
How would I go about using CopyPixels to build an isometric map? CopyPixels takes a specific rectangle and copies that onto a bitmap.. But how would one use that to build a seamless isometric map?Building a square top-down tiled map would be very simple as copypixels pastes each tile next to one another.. But for Isometric Maps, this would be different as some parts of the CopyPixels rectangle is over lapped into other tiles.. and this would 'erase' the bitmap of the other tiles currently on the bitmap..[URL]Fig2, is what happens when you try to do a copyPixel over an existing bitmap, assuming the white is transparent space.
I am trying to draw a set number of squares in a grid type layout and have pretty much gotten it to do what I want. The problems is that I want to be able to manipulate each square individually later on and I'm pretty sure I need to assign each one a unique instance name.something like "square_0_0" all the way down to "square_10_10" (it's a 10x10 table of squares).how do assign a unique instance name to each square as it's added to the stage? I attached the code I currently have running.
Am updating a 2D game I made to have an isometric view, problem is am having issues when converting the 2d coordinates of given movieclips into isometric ones. The way I converted my game into an isometric one is just by rotating rectangular graphic 45 degrees and increasing its width such that its 2 times the height.I having problems converting all my 2D coordinates into isometric ones.Is there a function to convert them, or a mathematical formula I could use? by the way the game am making is not tile based, so functions that use tiles to convert the coordinates are not going to work unfortunately.
EDIT: I managed to fix it, I just changed the alignment to be the upper left corner, i.e. though the game is isometric and has a demimonde shape, I imagined that it is contained in a box, and that box's upper left edge is where it is aligned...this way both x and y coordinates r the same ones in both 2D and "isometric" view.
I've been reading a bunch of the tutorials about using isometric in flash but they all seem to have one thing in common. They all use the arrow keys for movement. I've been trying to use the mouse for movement but have only met with frustration so far. I can get the movement to work but then the object collision on the tiles doesn't work or vise versa.
Using a matrix I'm tyring to turn a square into an isometric tile by skewing it upwards (y -30) and skewing it to the right (x + 60). This does giv the desired angles but the sides of the square are stretched and become incongruent. Is there some way to lock the sides from stretching when skewed with a matrix? Pictures speak loouder than words, the shape on the right is what I get and below it shows what I want: [URL]
I would like to know if its possible to create an isometric animation in flash like the example below. In case I want to create an isometric figure like the first two objects shown and by mouseover they should lift up to the last figure shown. Its no problem to create the basic figures with Photopshop, but I dont know how to animate them in flash cs5.
I've been trying to make a small isometric game, based on a grid of hexagons. So far I've managed to draw the hexagons and fill the screen. However, I can't seem to find any tutorials or information on how to convert them to an isometric view. The ones I have seen assume you want to draw squared and boxes. Does anybody have suggestions on how I do this?
