- [Voiceover] We're now going to create…a special type of piece that doesn't move.…This piece is an obstacle that our normal pieces…will have to fill around.…First, we need to create a new prefab,…just like we did for the empty piece.…Drag the normal piece prefab into…the scene from the P refabs folder.…Select GameObject, Break Prefab Instance,…and rename it to BubblePiece Prefab.…Remove the movable and color components in the Inspector.…
Open the prefab, click on the piece game object,…and replace the sprite with bubble01.…Drag the BubblePiece prefab object into the…Prefabs folder to create a prefab out of it…and then delete it from the scene.…Open the Grid Script and add the new…BubblePiece type to our eNom.…Save that and go back to the Editor…and click on the Grid object.…
Change the size of the piece prefabs array to three.…Set the Type of the last Element to BUBBLE…and drag the BubblePiece prefab from the Prefabs folder…into the Prefab Variable.…To test out our BubblePiece, we'll create one…in the center of the grid in the Grid Start Function.…
