Join Jesse Freeman for an in-depth discussion in this video Recycling the player game object, part of Unity 5: 2D Essential Training (2015).
- Now before we move on to actually putting…the whole game together,…we want to clean up the last few things on the player.…The first thing we'll do, is we're going to turn the player…into prefab by dragging him from the scene…into our Prefab's folder.…With our Player Prefab selected,…let's go in and add two more components.…The first component we're going to want to create…is the Destroy Offscreen.…The other component we're going to want to create…is the RECYCLED GAME OBJECT.…We spent a lot of time building the basic foundation…for all of this to work…and it took a while for us to get here.…
But now you can see, in order for us to create…recyclable game objects that take advantage…of our object pool and can also be destroyed…when they're offscreen, and are smart enough…to know whether the game object needs…to be recycled or not,…we simply just need to start adding these little behaviors…onto our component.…Because all of our code is incredibly modular…and self-sufficient we're able to now make this reusable…throughout the rest of our project,…
Super Zombie Runner riffs off the popular endless runner genre: a one-button casual game that's not only fun to play but exciting to build. The focus of the work is a reusable code base that you can extend and make your own, while learning the basics of object pooling, supporting multiple screen resolutions, tracking scoring, and multi-platform publishing. Along the way, Jesse covers key Unity features, such as working with sprites, creating animations, and leveraging the UI components.
