Action sequence (Advanced Interactions)

If you need more complex or different interactions in the scene you can easily add a custom one without coding. In v.1.0.0, AT+Explore comes with the Action Sequence System, a visual scripting environment build on top of the basic interaction system.
You can easily create a custom action sequence by following the steps below based on the Kitchen Demo Scene:

STEP 1. Create or select the sequence holder

The sequence holder is a special GameObject that links the action sequence to the scene, this means that you can re-use your action sequences in multiple scenes just using another Sequence Holder.

You can add or select the sequence holder using the last button in the ​Interaction tab.

STEP 2. Edit the Action Sequence Graph

As stated above, the Action Sequence Graph is a sequence of chained actions.
When creating a new Advanced Interaction for your scene you must think about these steps:

  1. What ​triggers​ the sequence? A button, an object, or it must start at the beginning of the experience?
  2. What is the sequence of events I need to present the user? Is there any choice he can do?

The first question is answered by the first node type, Triggers.
Every sequence starts with a trigger, there are 3 triggers right now, the names are self-explanatory:
● On Handle Click
● On Object Click
● On Start

When the sequence has been triggered it’s time to add Actions

In the above image you can see the list of available actions.
Every Trigger has a ​Next ​list, every action ha a ​Next ​list and a ​Caller attribute,​ if you connect a ​Next item of a Node A to the ​Caller attribute ​of Node B, during play mode the Node A will call the excecution of Node B.

Example​: in the image below there’s a nice Action Sequence that will lights up a room by turning on one light at the time.

The first node is the Trigger, in this case we want the user to click on a switch on the wall so we can use ​Trigger On Object Click.
When the action is triggered we do a chain of actions:

  1. Turn on the first light
  2. Wait for 1 second
  3. Turn on the second light
