Create multiple sprites from one texture


Recommended Posts


I am making a platformer game with pixijs. I am creating the platforms with a container and multiple sprites, but it is messy and inconvient for me to create a sprite for every block of the platform.

Here is what I am doing now:

var platform = new Container();

crate1 = new Sprite(resources.tiles.textures["boxCrate.png"]);
crate1.position.set(0, 0);

crate2 = new Sprite(resources.tiles.textures["boxCrate.png"]);
crate2.position.set(1 * 128, 0);

crate3 = new Sprite(resources.tiles.textures["boxCrate.png"]);
crate3.position.set(2 * 128, 0);

crate4 = new Sprite(resources.tiles.textures["boxCrate.png"]);
crate4.position.set(3 * 128, 0);


Hopefully you get what I mean... anyway to speed this up?

Here is a function that uses the same logic and allows you to pass in an array of sprites and return a container. I am using a sprite sheet. 

const createContainerofAllSprites = (arrayofSprites: Sprite[]): Container => {
  var platform = new Container();;

  for (var i = 0; i < arrayofSprites.length; ++i) {
    //Each Sprite
    let sprite = arrayofSprites[i]
    // Create a new sprite by passing in the old one. This is needed incase you have two or more of the same sprite in the array
    var newSprite = new Sprite(sprite.texture);
    spr.position.set(i * 128, 0);

const app = new Application({})

//The sprites you are going to pass into the function. Loop logic works here too, keeping it simple .
const sprite1: Sprite = new Sprite(Texture.from("pic_01.png"))
const sprite2: Sprite = new Sprite(Texture.from("pic_02.png"))

const allSprites: Sprite[] = [ sprite1, sprite2 ] 

const containerwithAllSprites: Container = createContainerofAllSprites(allSprites)
