Brain rules 3
Every brain in the game operates with a series of brain tiles that affect the internal behaviour (the object itself) as well as the ability to modify external behaviour (world, gameplay, winning conditions and other objects). Project Spark list of assignments derives from the Kodu visual programming toolkit which can be found here. Every Brain assignment menu (see picture below) consists of 'pages', then each page consists of the rules (a horizontal line of commands, starts with the line number) and last is the 'WHEN' and 'DO' sections, a highly optimised use of IF-THEN commands. Inside these two sections, the assignments are illustrated by 'tiles'. There are multiple categories of tiles like Sensors, Actuators, Properties and Operators:
  • Sensors (bump, see, ray cast): Sensors allow an object to sense information about the world, other objects, or input devices.
  • Actuators (jump, attack, heal, create, paint terrain): Actuators allow an object to change the world, itself, or other objects.
  • Properties (scale, movement speed, world brighness, custom properties): Brains can read and write properties to customize objects and the world.
  • Operators (add, multiply, absolute value, greater than): Operators allow the creator to form meaningful expressions from different properties.


Below is a list of in-game categories for the assignments (inside the WHEN and a DO section) which are based in Project Spark's visual programming language (descriptions needed for brain tiles):

<   >  Indicate player input or custom action

(...)   Indicate examples of pre-made content (not included in map so that it doesn't confuse the viewer) 

Italic  Indicate the tile is a category

Bold Indicate the tile is seen in the first menu when a new tile is inserted.
