Training Builder Suggestion...

Post by Tessla » Sat Aug 10, 2019 1:12 pm

We feel that the training builder is complicated, very hard to use because of this and very awkward.. It makes very little sense to us..

Suggestion.. Take at look at the Lego Mindstorm software.. I do not use the software anymore, but I used to a few years ago and found it very cool.. It works via logic. One action before another.. We feel that an all new Training Builder, based on the Mindstorm process, should be added into Simlab Composer, like little building blocks made up of Animated Actions, where the user can grab them and drag them into a building block page.. It makes real sense to do this.. and since kids used the Mindstorm software, we are sure it would be easy for users of Similar Composer to learn.. Check out the screen shot. We are sure you will understand where we are coming from..

Hello Tessla,

We always appreciate your great feedback.

We worked hard to make SimLab Training builder as easy as possible, so the user can visually describe the logic for the training.

It comes in the middle between Unreal Blue print (which is very powerful and very complex) and the Lego GUI you described.

The problem is that in training the process may not be linear, for example if the user moved 4 screws, now she/he can move a part, we do not know what order the user followed but we still have to describe the logic.

We think it is easy (after you see the basic VR training)

But still it is not linear, and this makes it not very easy for young kids, we will try to make it simpler if possible.

Yes, we both understand the effort that has gone into this features and we are trying to get our heads around it.. We have had a lot of success in using your Actions and Multi Action but when it comes to the Training Building, where we need more options, to make this project apply more logic.. Basically, it should not be possible to open or close a door when the drawer is open.

We have attached part of the project. Could you please add a training building example to this project, so we can see what you have done. All we need to do, is stop the door from being able to close when the drawer is open.. If we can see what you have done, we can work from that..

To be honest, we should be able to apply this to the Multi Actions panel, by adding a command between the two events. See mockup image..

Thank you
