GameMaker's Room Editor makes it easy to layout the objects that make up a game level. In this video we design and lay out a custom arrangement of bricks in our room.
- [Instructor] To add some variety to our game…let's use the other brick colors…that we created sprites for earlier.…Open the brick object that we have now.…To distinguish it from the new bricks…that we're about to create let's change…the name to be a little more descriptive,…obj_green brick.…Let's also add a create event here,…and drag in a new script for it,…and let's initialize a single variable.…Color equals green in quotes,…since this is a string of text and not a number.…
Now we can save that, close our object,…and now right click it and choose Duplicate.…For this brick we'll name it obj_yellowbrick,…and we'll use the dropdown to select the yellow spray.…In the script we'll change the string to yellow.…Again we'll save and we'll do this twice more.…For the orange brick,…and then finally, we'll make a duplicate for the red brick.…
And again we'll set the color to red…so we can refer to it later.…And let's open our room.…I'll maximize the window, and reposition.…And here's where level design comes in.…Let's make sure we're working on the Objects tab,…
