Join Dan Violet Sagmiller for an in-depth discussion in this video Base creates drones, part of Build a Real-Time Strategy Game with Unity 5.
- [Voiceover] One of the final actions…we need to give the player…is the ability to create more drones.…Of course those drones can create more bases…and those can create more drones and so on.…To start this all off, I'm gonna go into the Scripts folder.…In the Scripts folder, I'll find the Actions folder…and go in there.…And inside of the Actions folder,…I'm gonna create a script called CreateUnitAction.…Now let's edit CreateUnitAction.…In CreateUnitAction, the first thing I wanna do…is make this an action behavior.…So, I'll set it to ActionBehavior.…
Next, I need to give it a couple public variables.…I'll start with a prefab,…public, GameObject, Prefab.…This is gonna be the drone that it'll create.…Next, how much does this drone cost?…Public, float, Cost equals zero.…Next, I need to know the player definition.…So, private, PlayerSetupDefinition,…player.…
In the Start function,…I'm gonna get access to that player.…So, player equals GetComponent,…Player.Info.…I don't need the Update function,…so I'll just get rid of it.…
