How to Add Speed- Difficulty 2/5 or 🟨

In Tag Domination, Capture the Flag, and other game modes you might want to make speed upgrades- upgrades that increase your speed every time you buy them.

You can do this with speed modifiers- However that completely changes your speed, and it doesn’t add speed. What you’ll want to do to add speed is in this tutorial.

This tutorial requires a sense of blocks- Well, not really, you could just follow every instruction, but you know what I mean.

P.S. I only did this with one vending machine but with stock 5. This is how I did my “one vending machine” strategy.

Step 1- Place a vending machine(Preferably Stock 1)
Step 2- Set the currency you need, what the upgrade will cost, etc.
Step 3- Place a Trigger. Make the active scope for “player” only. Change the settings so the trigger cannot be seen or activated by a player stepping on it.
Step 4- Make a property called “speed”.
Step 5- Change the blocks in the trigger to this.

Step 6- For me, I added five speed modifiers.
Step 7- Remember how in the blocks, channels were broadcasted? Change the speed according to the level of the channel.

I tested, and there you go! You should be able to “add” speed in your games now!

What the tutorial did well:

  1. Clear Title: Your tutorial has a very descriptive title that gives readers a good sense of what the guide will cover. It’s clear that this guide is about how to implement speed upgrades in certain game modes.

  2. Detailed Explanation: The steps in the guide were explained well. They were clear, concise, and each one contributed to the understanding of the topic at hand. I especially liked the inclusion of screenshots as they visually aid comprehension.

  3. Visuals: Your use of screenshots is excellent. They provide a visual guide for readers and help them better understand the process of setting up speed upgrades.

  4. Structure: The tutorial is well-organized. The instructions are logically ordered and easy to follow, which makes the process feel manageable.

  5. Instructions: Your guide includes precise and detailed instructions, making it easier for the reader to understand and implement the steps.

Areas for improvement:

  1. Introduction: The tutorial could benefit from a more engaging introduction. The current intro is quite brief and doesn’t provide much context or a brief overview of what will be covered in the guide.

  2. Conclusion: The tutorial could also use a conclusion summarizing the main points and perhaps suggesting ways to creatively use the skill just learned. It could also invite questions, encouraging reader engagement.

  3. Proofread: Be sure to proofread for small typos and grammatical errors. While they don’t significantly detract from the guide, they can sometimes interrupt the flow for readers.

Overall, this tutorial does a great job of explaining how to add speed upgrades in Gimkit Creative games. With a few tweaks, this guide could be a comprehensive resource for others looking to add this feature to their games. Keep up the good work!

He is sill a little fragile, I can tell. But he should be good in no time! We just have to have more users ask for help & also have to test him a bit.
