map notes
I was experimenting with creating some kind of skeletal animation; I had used something similar in midnight graveyard but wanted to try something else.
The trees were created to stress test the script so they're generated and animated in realtime - there's a good chance you'll experience some lag because of this.

Sorry it's nothing special - it was just a test but I thought the trees looked interesting so I slapped in some gameplay and art.

Also doesn't add me to the leaderboards after completing, despite showing me as having finished the level on dustkid
Do I need to update Dustmod prior to playing this?

That's really weird, but yeah updating might fix your problems.

Cool, how did you make the props move?

Scripting was added to dustmod a few months ago: https://dustkidblog.wordpress.com/2017/07/27/dustscripting-is-live/

I supposed I should have asked: Can I see your script file that you used to make the props move?

Sure, I don't know how useful it'll be for you but here it is: https://gist.github.com/cmann1/21f0e43a4c1111184b2102492f7f0f4a

Technically I'm not moving actual props, rather drawing sprites directly using the sprite and canvas API classes
If you want to know more it might be easier asking in the discord.

Would I have to write my own all by myself or is it possible to rely on predefined functions and classes?

I'm not sure I understand, what exactly do you want to do?
You can modify and insert the code I posted in your own maps, and the API already has functions for doing almost anything you want in game.
