Dial

Here's a dial for all your volume needs and other in-game dial stuff ! (file attached below)

Simply drag the actor named 'place me in scene for dial' into the scene and it will generate a 10 segment rotary dial, all 10 dial panels are separate images, so you can drag them into Photoshop and apply your own design / values . . . . etc.

    Cheers everyone.

    A couple of additional notes, you can change the direction that the light is falling onto the rotatry dial - open the 'Dial panel' actor and change the 'Specular Angle' attribute from 73° to some other value, for example 110° means the light is coming more from above the dial, and something like -60° would see the light coming from below . . .etc.

    Also if you want to extract a value from the dial (is 'dial' the right word ? I don't think it is now) for example to change the volume of music or change the power of a weapon (etc) you can use the angle Dial Value attribute, you just need to use a little maths to convert it to the value range you need.

    Also the edges of the dial panels might look a little flickery when moving, but that's just because it's set up for Retina - if you preview it on a Retina device (or 200% custom preview in Creator) then you can see the motion/edges are nice and smooth.

    Here you go, an 8bit version for BigDave :)

    With this version, you can drag the 'Dial Set Up' actor into the scene and then change the width to whatever size you need - and the dial that it generates will be that width.

    You have got to show that you know who Noddy and Big Ears are.

    Nice try, but you will need to take my word on it. I will not be tricked into posting a depiction of something as subversive as this, not to mention the Golliwogs. ;)

    Okay, so far one awesome.

    When I said depict it I didn't mean show us the bell on your pointy hat! I meant some proof... like a copy of the rag books you had as a child.

    Like this: here's the one my Nanna used to read me when I was four.

    That beast Big Ears just announced that he will deport the Golliwog and all his sycophantic Noddies in January. :'(
