    You can open 2 projects in 2 instances of GS and copy rules from one actor from project 1 and paste in other actor of project 2 :)

    Only on Mac, on Windows you have use the same instance, copy the rules, change the file that is open and then paste.

    @Armelline Thanks for instigating this. Not able to contribute, but I learnt heaps.

    Maybe this thread could just keep going without any prizes? We'd all be better off for it! :grin:

    @CasualEvolution - Excellent point! - That's saved my a$$ a few times with broken projects, copying that hard-fought logic back into an earlier good build.... :smile:

    Importing large tables and using the copy table rule is the devil. It momentarily freezes your game until the import/copy is done.

    @Armelline Great idea

    Instance to Actor/Instance direct communication.

    When an actor is in the scene and unlocked it has a Current Scene menu options in the Attributes browser.
    Within Current Scene>Layers there are all the Actors/Instances within the Scene and their Attributes can be manipulated or "looked at" directly from another in-scene actor.

    I've used it to 'pass' text to a display text actor when calendar event instances are pressed.
    Also to change instance's alpha to various levels from several events - pinball table lights.

    The receiving actor/instance is passive whilst all this activity happens to them. Quite abusive I guess!

    Bit late but my top GS tip would be to always make notes, when I was making bigger games I found notes extremely useful as you tend to forget what some of the rules do :)
