Controlling the width of a path at runtime?


Recommended Posts


I am making a game that uses Blob tileset similar to that one:

In order to make islands connected by bridges such as that:



I would like to be able to control the width of the bridges at runtime (or at the time of loading the map) because of the requirement of my clients.

I thought of using Blender's BlendShapes which I thought would be translated as MorphTarget in BabylonJS; but I don't see them in the compatibility list of the exporter: http://doc.babylonjs.com/resources/blender#blender-to-babylonjs-exporter

Any alternative ideas? maybe bones or drivers? ideally, I would like to have a single value "path width" that I can modify with a slider to increase/decrease the width of my bridges.

Thank you for you answers.

I did not exported anything yet ^^ I wanted to make sure it was possible before to start. As said, morph targets do not appear in the compatibility list: http://doc.babylonjs.com/resources/blender#blender-to-babylonjs-exporter

I do not know what a Blendshape is

That's the name used by Unity and Maya for Shape Keys.

What I do not understand is: How do you render the bridges so far? GUI sprites? real 3d objects?

They will be part of 3D tiles; using the same tileset methods than the 2D one. I am hoping to open a WIP thread if my client agrees.
