After working on my dialogue system, I wanted to try to make my own dialogue editor (for both learning and practical uses). Yes, I know there are other dialogue editors.
So, I want to create a node (or instance a template.tscn, really), through code, and have that node be able to assign a value to a dictionary item depending on user input.
When I create a new node as a branch of the previous node, I want the new node node to "inherit" dictionary position of the previous node, and add it´s own.
I´m just not sure how to do this dynamically.
This is how it should work:
say I have a base node, which represents:
I then want to add a node, and a branch to the dictionary at the same time. Adding the branch to a dictionary is not the problem
How do I make the newly created node understand which position in the dictionary it represents? So if I´m on node 2b, it should know to add a value to
dict["trunk"]["branch2"] without having to hardcode it.
I do hope this doesn´t sound too confusing :P
