    Hi,
    I'm following the Creator Kits: FPS tutorial and at the Design your own level, Add you own Room, the Editing Layout doesn't seem to generate the rooms at the doors. Moving the mouse around doesn't show the position of new rooms or corridors (neither does pressing R).

    I'm using Unity 2019.1.5f1.

    Hi @Gabosaurus!

    Sorry you're having trouble with the Creator Kit: FPS. We need a little more information to help:

    1.
    Did you select a room or corridor thumbnail image, before moving your cursor from the Inspector into the Scene view? The selected room or corridor will appear greyed out -- see the example below:

    2. If so, could you please take us a similar screenshot of your Scene view and the Inspector? Then we'll be able to investigate this issue in more detail.

    Hi,

    The issue is with both corridor and room. For example, the first corridor can be placed correctly but I can't continue it with another one.

    One corridor added, but can't place another one after it.

    Try to delete it, but it's never selected (in orange)

    Same with Room.

    TY,

    Hey Gabosaurus,

    I tried to reproduce your issue but couldn't get it to occur on my end. I've got some questions for you to help us track it down and fix it!

    Would you be able to share any of the console errors you're receiving in the console? Seems like there is some NullReferenceException error.

    Sometimes when projects aren't working correctly but should be, it could help to try a Reimport of the project - to do this right click anywhere within the project window and select "Reimport All". This process goes through importing every asset into your project as if it was opening it for the first time - which can oftentimes lead to a fix in case some files didn't import correctly upon initial opening. Alternatively, deleting the Library folder from your disk where the project is stored can have the same effect (This folder will be reacquired when the project is opened again).
    Good luck and keep us updated!

    Can you explain why you used this specific skybox? Since it's not visible to the player, I assume that it was only picked for lighting settings?

    It looks like the LevelLayout scripts hides all rooms from the hierarchy (by setting a HideInHierarchy flag). Can you explain why? Is it just to keep the hierarchy "cleaner" or is there any other purpose for this? Was a little confusing to be honest.

    Your asset link above is broken and the tutorial site tries to make a popup to link to asset store download!

    Hey,

    first of all thanks to the content team for the effort you put into the packages. It's really appreciated.
    While I'm an advanced developer I'm more interested in the code and stumbled over this bit:

    HideFlags.png

    Maybe it's finally time to get HideFlags to serialize in the editor if even the content team needs to resort to a hack? I've done the same thing myself more often than I wanted to. Also, maybe make the objects unclickable as well. It has always bothered me that I can completely hide the object in the hierarchy but still be able to click on it.

    EDIT: Other than that I think that the assets are very beautiful. I just wish we'd get more advanced games instead of these mini games. I understand the goal is to teach beginners, but we already have a wealth of beginner tutorials and resources. We are still missing a bigger project and a more indepth tutorial going in more detail how to create proper systems with Unity. Something like multiple levels, managing game states, level streaming (an open world) or something along those lines.
