The previous posts were all about ways to customize the appearance of objects in the game. But sometimes, changing colors or material is not enough and you want to switch the texture of an object. For example, what if you need a way to count points or have a rulebook with multiple pages ready on the table?
With the new multistate objects, you can switch textures during the game. There are two standard multistate objects included with Tabletop Playground: a 10 state counter and a 100 state counter. You can change their state by pressing a button, using the context menu, or on the object properties window.
When you create your own multistate objects, you can combine multiple components: Just as with standard objects, you can use model components to add arbitrary 3D models. You can also add multistate components. They come in square, round, or hexagonal shape and can have dozens of different texture states.
The texture states are defined in the editor in a similar way as the cards in a card deck. All multistate components of an object are always in the same state. For example, here’s an object with a cube model and three multistate components:
You can now find an entry on multistate objects in the knowledge base, too!
