This week we learned how to make use of and exploit the Rotate tool in order to duplicate shapes and create a flower. Afterward, we were made aware of the Symbol Spray Tool, allowing us to spray a variety of symbols and patterns onto our page. Finally, there is an outline of my storyboard and what this Twine layout means.
Three pictures overall.
- The first is of the Rotate tool. We started with a single circle and an oval petal-like shape. Using the center of the circle as the anchor and selecting the petal, we used the Rotate tool and input ‘360/24’. This duplicated the petal 24 times in a spread while rotating it 360 degrees – around the entire circle.
- Using the spray tool. Selecting a symbol from an expansive library, we simply sprayed to our hearts content. I chose some from the ‘mad science’ category, and the above is the result. This can be used to add in symbols such as arrows and small pictures that drawing may not be able to replicate.
- My storyboard. Twine allows for the easy creation of a flowchart and interactive fiction. The picture is an example of this, and the first few ‘parts’ of my project. The top, marked with a green rocket, is the starting point. From then on, it goes downward, branching off into two small sections before joining up once more. Using Twine, I can join these sections up into one path, or ‘route’ as it’s commonly referred to. If I so wish, I may add videos and images in these slides, add in input fields that lead to different results based on if it’s right or wrong, and remember certain details (if a choice is made at the very beginning that affects the ending, I can tell it to remember that and alter text based on that variable).
