    [Request] create new objects object

    I've always had a problem with MMF2's 'create new objects' event.
    The reason? One must select from a list the object they wish to make. (you can just use fastloops for the same object, but that's not the point.)

    The problem? Say you want to make 500 different items during runtime. That would mean you would need 500 events.

    Solution? I simply request an object that can use the Expression Editor to create new objects. Meaning, you can create 500 individual objects in 1 event. Far more convenient.

    I'd also be happy if this was just included into a upcoming update instead of an object.

    Anyway, thanks.

    Use a fastloop?

    It's not possible in an extension, I think it definitely will be in MMF3, maybe even in MMF2 as an update - who knows?

    Oops, bad reading, I skipped to "The problem" :blush:

    I do think that this object would be useful in the sense that you wouldn't have to specify the object in the frame, and maybe use an expression to choose an object.

    I think that a create new objects object is pointless.

    There already is an objects object with many conditions but only action and one expression, , they only added in what they needed and everything I can think of is already possible.

    You don't seem to understand.
    He wants to create an object by entering it's name - via expression - not by selecting it from the list.
    For example:

    On loop "create"
    Create object List Item$("List",loopindex("create")) at 10,10

    Re: [Request] create new objects object

    thank you for understanding, but you really think it can't be done as an extension?

    It just seemed it would become a possibility much sooner as an extension than as a update, but if that's not possible, I'm perfectly fine with taking this to Features/Updates wanted.

    Re: [Request] create new objects object

    From what I heard, because of limitations in MMF2, it is not doable.
