Creating new rooms

This might seem a bit long or complex to start with, but it is very easy.  It is all cutting and pasting.
To create a new room you just need to copy & paste the section of script in the 2nd keyframe that reads -


if (_root.Place == 0) { //First room
	_root.texty = "You have no idea where this place is.  Bright light illuminates the room from a strange pyramid shaped bulb overhead.  You squint at it but realize that this is unnecessary as the light is quite comfortable to look at directly.  The room is quite bare, there is a door to the right.";
	// IMAGES
	_root.image1._visible = true;
	///////////////////////////
	if (Key.isDown(Key.ENTER)) {
		if ((_root.inputy == "open door") or (_root.inputy == "go right") or (_root.inputy == "right")) {
			_root.Place += 1; //Go to Second Room
			ResetAll(); // Go to function in keyframe 1
		}
	}
}

The Place variable is a scene or room in the game.  Change this to another number, describe the new room in 
texty which then copies over to the textbox. The inputy line defines how to get to the new scene, you can write
anything in here, 'north', 'south', 'open door' etc.
If you have an image for this scene set it to visible here but make sure to set it to visible = false in the ResetAll function, keyframe 1.

Creating new objects

To create a new object first specify which room or Place it will be found in.  Copy this line of script you can
see in the first few lines of keyframe 1.  Change the name to Object2Position = (Place to be found);

_root.Object1Position = 0; 

Also copy and change this variable to object2.

_root.Object1 = 0; // Ensure First Object actions only occur once.

In the AddObjects function, copy and paste the following code, then change the variable for object1Position to 
object2position and change the "box" description.


if (_root.Object1Position == "bag") {
		_root.listbox1.addItemAt(0, "box"); //Update items held box
	}

Then copy the following script found in the OBJECTS section of script, keyframe 2 -

if ((_root.Object1Position == _root.Place) and (_root.Object1 == 0)) {
	_root.objecty = _root.objecty+"There is a SMALL BOX SHAPED OBJECT on the floor";
	_root.Object1 = 1; //the purpose of object1 is just to ensure that this line is added only once.
}

Add a number to the variables (object1Position will be object2Position, etc.).  Add a description for the object in
objecty. Then copy the sections below this and just change the variables & descriptions to suit the new object.  This 
will define how to get, drop and use the object.  Obviously you can create any commands you want, throw object, move
object, push object, etc.  There are 2 responses for the 'use object' input, if you are not in the right room when
you use the object you need a response to say 'The object doesn't work here.'

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
