Parking Cars But not Trucks .... How to


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to park only cars and not trucks on Country Roads 45 degree parking spaces.

Each parking space is in an "Object variable list".  I assigned the keyword "Truck" to those vehicles too big or long to fit the space.

When a times expires, the next applicable vehicle will be parked .... if it's not a truck.

What I don't know how to do is access the keyword of the listed object when it reaches the chosen parking spot .

I'm real weak on variables/trigger/extended variables and the like.

Can someone explain how to do this using the "variable list" and an "index variable?

Thanks in Advance 

Hope I explained this OK !!!

Hello @hmclay,

With a Variable (Extended), you can access any variable of a specified object.


The object that you want to specify is held in a list.

Select the cog icon next to the object of your extended variable, 
to change this entry to Variable (List/Table)


Kind regards

In this example ... is there a way to access the keyword of the "vehicle" on the parking spot passed to the user event.

Is there a better way to access a type of vehicle on a street/track.

If the vehicle has a keyword/variable "Truck", I want it to pass and not park, then wait for next vehicle.

This does not work (most likely known) .... I don't know what to do with the Property/Variable exists action .... tried extended variable etc., but not successful  .... Not sure what to call out on each "cog icon".

If you want to address an unknown vehicle on a known track, you may use a "repeat" loop to obtain a list of all vehicles on that track.
Even when there is only one vehicle present
The studio doesn't differenciate - a list may contain one element of more. It makes no difference.

Each list entry is then the object for further scrutiny (i.e. truck or no truck)


Hope this helps?

Yes, with that information, I was able to get my event to function.

Thanks a million ... still don't fully understand extended variables, as I would like. However, with each piece of information, hopefully it will just dawn on me.

Again ... Thanks!
