Not sure how to title this email. I am in search of a concept. What I want to do is take several objs - squares of varying sizes - then have them placed on the stage forming a mosaic grid of some sort. Maybe some spacing in there.
Anyway, I'm thinking I need to take this approach: //pseudo code below createEmptyMovieClip("box_mc", getNextHighestDepth()); duplicate "box_mc" and randomly place them in locations off the stage then have those clips come in and form the mosaic. Now I think that idea works if all the "box_mc" clips were the same size. For clips of different sizes, I'm thinking I need to add collision detection just in case they stop on top of each other. But how far over should it move it they touch? And which way should they move (if they are touching the left,bottom, top, right side)? Etc. Lots of questions. Writing it now, just also seeing if someone else has more input or even a suggested site to look at for ideas or demos. Thanks. fM. _______________________________________________ Flashcoders@chattyfig.figleaf.com To change your subscription options or search the archive: http://chattyfig.figleaf.com/mailman/listinfo/flashcoders Brought to you by Fig Leaf Software Premier Authorized Adobe Consulting and Training http://www.figleaf.com http://training.figleaf.com
