🎲Die Roller

is an Entity Component

Die Roller is another behind the scenes component, used for creating chance and randomisation in levels. It can be a little tricky, but once you get a knack for it it feels straight-forward.

Currently, die roller supports up to 6 potential outcomes - just like the sides of a die - but if you apply this component to multiple entities, all having 6 possible outcomes, depending on how solid your linking is, you can create theoretically infinite random interactions and occurrences!

  • High roll threshold - determines the minimum number for a high roll, for linking purposes. The default is 4. E.g.:

    • If I roll 1, 2 or 3, I've rolled low

    • If I roll 4, 5 or 6, I've rolled high

      • Can be used to easily create a 2-option outcome

Common Uses

  • Introducing chance to games - maximises replayability

  • Randomised ambience
