ZardOz's Principia Tutorials #17 (fixed)

Need Help? This example shows some of the many, many ways that Platforms are useful.

James Bot .007 Has infiltrated Vortex 4, the Secret Lair of the Robot's arch-nemesis... Me! (Continued from #16 and others)

The platform is an extremely useful tool for the Principia afficianado, the platform can be used for a wide variety of practical purposes. Make tracks, ramps, ledges, walls, ceilings, containers, guide rails, words or even artwork. They are an invaluable building tool for moving large groups of parts at once or positioning parts in cramped quarters. (See Big Digital Display example and the Wiki: User Interface: 'The Builders Helper' section.)

  • ricardito08: @incrazyboyy: really? Your a risk taker then.
  • incrazyboyy: I did it... with my last life and 1% health
  • ricardito08: @zardOz: Ohhhhh. Kk
  • zardOz2: @ricardito08: oh, thats all fixed... wasnt this level anyway.
  • ricardito08: @zardOz: When you said "Gah my adventure bot is bugged".
  • zardOz2: @ricardito08: ? Whats the problem?
  • ricardito08: Ok?
  • zardOz2: Gah my adventure bot is bugged, I cant build my Boss...its on the forum.
  • zardOz2: @sdac: tyty! I figured it was something like that, I love my flip open keyboard, I can barely function without the arrow keys on my small phone, I use gridlock like 3 times a minute:)
  • sdac: @zardOz: we have keyboard shortcuts on PC when we develop, didn't care to remove them from the Android version since we didn't expect anyone to actually have a keyboard. Be careful with what key you press because some keys will do very weird things ;) we'll look over them before the next release
  • zardOz2: Make that the U key that saves, also is a problem with B, it fails to autosave correctly, for me at least.
  • zardOz2: Umm, Fyi my Phone Keyboard now insta-publishes levels when you press j without even a prompt to name it?!? And the Y button insta-saves! Be careful you dont save an error! Im afraid to try the other buttons, the gridlock G button is gone i was hooked on that.
  • yo man: Finally beat it. I just always missed one of the buttons.
  • zardOz2: @yo man: you are probably missing the one behind the right most layer 3 platform, there is four on the left by the checkpoint, two on the right.
  • yo man: Its the red doors I cannot get completely rid of!
  • zardOz2: @yo man: the laser is supposed to trigger the last door, the red ones are semi hidden button triggers.
  • yo man: Got to the end.. but couldnt get to the checkered block.
  • Alfajim: Great fun! Made it to thd end. :)
  • zardOz2: @yo man: yeah its kinda tricky to fall down with the fans pushingt jump and stick to the wall ,shoot the target to open the floor/breadboards, switch to layer 2 to fall off the wall then wiggle into the hole against the airflow on layer 1
  • yo man: Okay. I quit.
  • yo man: I get the trap door open.. and that is where I get stuck.
  • woodnut2: @zardOz: Darn long eared varment headed me wrong at Albakerkey . Great Hornie toads that was fun . :D
  • zardOz2: I must have erased a platform, shouldnt be able to get back there, fixed that and the game manager frequency...
  • zardOz2: @woodnut: hehe Not supposed to go behind the fans! There is a shaft in the floor where the lasers point up that can open;)
  • woodnut2: Once I got behind the fans and shut down the bread boards I keep getting my head stuck under a fan .Good adventure I look forward to finishing :)
  • zardOz2: Wow, massive improvement to sandbox on the new update! Damnit Im never gonna finish if you keep adding parts! Take a break and put some object descriptions in please, I cant give help If I have no clue what something is or does, a simple sentence on each would help tremendously..
