Use an AssetUtility to create instances of player and monster actor classes in your RPG. You’ll learn how to create an instance of a ScriptableObject at run time and clone it so you don’t accidentally change values while working on your game in Unity’s IDE.
- [Voiceover] So, now that we're able to create…our actor class, let's go in and take a look…at how we can use it inside of our engine.…Let's go to the battle system scripts folder,…and open up the actor class.…Now, whenever we work with scriptable objects,…we don't wanna use the actual object…that's inside of our asset folder.…When we're inside of the Unity editor,…sometimes you can corrupt the data by making changes…to the scriptable object instance,…and that will actually get saved back to the project.…So, inside of our game, we're gonna wanna create a clone…of the actor and use that inside of our battle system.…
Let's scroll to the bottom of our actor class…and create a new public method with a return type of T.…And we're gonna call this method Clone,…and pass in T, as the generic.…And after our parentheses, we'll write:…where T : Actor.…And then close our method.…Now, we'll be able to create a clone of our actor,…and if we ever extended the actor class,…we can still call the same clone method,…and return a base actor scriptable object.…
