I can't believe how long it takes to put these GUI popups in. It takes a good half hour for each one and I've got thirty to do. I've been trying to streamline the process by having a separate Max file with the camera, click planes and buttons in position with the Plasma component utils attached correctly. I then merge this with the Age's Max file and allow Max to auto-rename everything. I have to connect audio files to the sound emitters, put materials to the objects and create a new Python file each time.
Is it really worth all this time and effort for something the player spends mere seconds viewing? Well, I think so - I'll just have to persevere.
Does anyone have any tips for speeding up the process? Can things be doubled up? I mean if an item to be viewed appears in a more than one location can they share the same camera and Plasma components? If so which ones?
As a thank you, here are some PopUps to look forward to:
