Using Variables

Nutshell.png
Variables can be used in several ways, but in all cases they are used to store some data for the duration of the game. Variables come in different forms: integers, floats, entities, strings, arrays and booleans, there are also several different ways variables can be stored.

A simple variable is simply declared using

variable = data;

This variable can be used in the current function and any function that passes it as an argument, or is called on it (so it'd be used as 'self').


Variables can be global (which can be used in all threads without needing to be called) by using the

level.variable = data;

or they can be assigned to entities individually

entity.variable = data;

for things like player.health (integer, already built-in, but can be modified) and level.teamBased (boolean).
