Message Broadcaster

Sends a message to activate another event.

​​

  • Broadcast a message from the asset in a specific range - When you broadcast a message, you can trigger events the same way a button works (broadcast a message opening a door) - Can detect a target to create specific trigger conditions

PERFORMANCE TIP In multiplayer Experiences, there are two layers of logic that will not communicate with each other: singleplayer [SP] and multiplayer [MP]. For best performance, only apply [MP] behaviours and components to objects that MUST be synchronised to all players (or communicate on that layer), and maximise use of the [SP] (Client Only) layer.

USAGE TIP The [MP] version of this behaviour will not communicate with Quests or [SP] behaviours or components. It can be used in singleplayer Experiences.
