    Hi all,

    Thought I would introduce my advancement on Grid Builder with the next release version and the current updates the asset has recieved thus far.

    The Main Features of the asset are -
    • Create and design your grid and layout with additional grid tools and types
    • Placing, removing and moving existing objects
    • Choose how many cells your placed objects will take up, up to 5x5 cells
    • Saving and loading capabilities
    • Developers can preconfigure a grid to load objects on start for users
    • Objects can now be placed on a timer to build after a delay
    • Objects can be visually highlighted based on how many cells it takes up
    • Objects can be selected and moved or drag moved
    • Many different types of placement logic like drag and drop, drag build and place one
    • Layer grids to create dynamic effects
    • Move objects on grid points instead of the center of cells
    • Auto cell blocking makes cells unplaceable
    • Hide and show cells when placing and removing
    • Floor tiles can be placed underneath objects depending on size
    • A simple upgrade system with timing
    • Many customisation options
    • Full documentation of all components available at GolemiteGames
    • Thouroughly commented code
    • Additional methods to use should you want to get creative
    So many games use grids as an underlying system with no visuals at all, which you can also use this system for.

    Update 1.1.0 released additional floor tiles and upgrade system.

    Update 1.2.0 released a major overhaul to the system with increased usability and setup.

    Update 1.3.0 releases in the next days allows developers to pre create the grids right in the editor, saving startup time and also providing instant visual feedback for materials and other grid options.

    I will try and keep this thread up to date with relevent updates and if anyone has anything they would like to see in Grid Builder 2, please do drop a comment here.
