Region

The Region node allows for creation of regions in the map. These are used for various purposes like trigger points, ensuring the player/AI stays within an area and using it for randomly selecting units/buildings within the region.

Boundary

This node defines the Encounter boundaries. This is effectively what the player will consider the 'map boundary', however, the real map boundary is always 2k by 2k in size. The Encounter boundary is the playable space within the map.

PropertyRequiredDefaultDetails
Nametrue-Name of the Node that will be used for the Unity game object

Positionfalse-Position of the center of the boundary region.
Widthfalse800Width measure of the map (maximum of 2000)

Example

Normal

This node defines the Encounter boundaries. This is effectively what the player will consider the 'map boundary', however, the real map boundary is always 2k by 2k in size. The Encounter boundary is the playable space within the map.

Positionfalse-Position of the center of the boundary region.
Rotationfalse-Regions are hexigon in shape. Rotating them can affect the trigger area and may be useful under specific situations.
Guidfalse-A UUIDv4 that you then use in the contract json.

Radiusfalse0Radius of the hexigon region
RegionDefIdfalseregionDef_TargetZoneAffects the region colour and the message on hover, like 'Target'.

Usable: regionDef_Positive, regionDef_Negative, regionDef_HostileDropZone, regionDef_EvacZone, regionDef_DangerZone, regionDef_CaptureZone, regionDef_TargetZone, regionDef_EscortZone, regionDef_DenialZone
