- Just like how we created the MovablePiece…and ColorPiece scripts,…we're now going to make a ClearablePiece script.…Go ahead and make a new script…called ClearablePiece and open it.…The first thing we're going to do is add some variables.…Add a variable to hold the clear animation…we made in the last video.…Our animation is of type, AnimationClip,…and I'm just going to call it clearAnimation.…We'll need this so we can play the animation later.…We also might want to know if the piece is…in the process of being cleared.…
So we're going to add a Boolean to keep track of that,…called isBeingCleared.…Finally, we need a reference to the game piece…that we're attached to.…This way, we can access properties of the piece…and have a reference to the grid object.…I'm making this variable protected,…because later on we're going to extend this class,…and the derived classes need to have…access to this variable.…We'll get our reference to the game piece…in Awake, using GetComponent.…Now add a function called Clear,…which we'll call when we want to clear a piece.…
