I am in the middle of writing a chapter of my story where you have to collect 3 items. I was wondering how I might code this, obviously I use the reader message bar at the top of the screen to notify the reader that they have collected an item. But how would I code it to say for example: You have collected 1/3 items, 2/3 items, 3/3 items. The issue is, the reader can choose in which order they collect them so I cannot just write it if that makes sense as they may have already collected 2/3 for example before they collect the last one (which other readers may have collected first)
I wanted it so that once all three items had been collected they can continue with the story, but I’m not sure how to code it to be table to tell when they’ve collected them all!
Sorry if this doesn’t make sense, it’s pretty hard to explain.
I’ve thought about using gains, but again not sure how this would work with multiple items being collected in different orders.
Stumped trying to figure it out!
