Devices


Wire Repeater

By CringeKarlScott:
Screenshot 2023-10-07 at 08-36-50 Gimkit - live learning game show
The wire repeater is actually quite a simple device, really. Maybe even the very simplest. It has no devices options, and so can only be used with wires. Despite its name, it is nothing like the repeater device.

Basically, let’s say you wanted to have a call to action button on a popup that when clicked, closed the popup, and you didn’t want to use channels, for some reason.

Well, you can’t wire a device to itself, so what you could do is wire the popup to the wire repeater. You’ll notice that they’re aren’t any options for what you want the wire repeater to do, it’ll always “repeat the wire pulse.”

What this means is that you can then wire the wire repeater back to the popup, and have it close the popup.

Basically, the wire repeater just continues a wire pulse, but from a different device, keeping any data the wire had, such as a triggering player. This is super useful for if you want to wire something to itself or you’ve reached the maximum of six wires coming out of one device (just swap one of the wires for a wire to a wire repeater, and then you can have six more wires coming out of that!).

And that’s the wire repeater!

Barrier

By Blizzy


This is the barrier device. It is used(usually) to block or seal off areas. It can also be used to color areas, like if you are making lava, you could put an orange no-collision non-transparent barrier over gray water(Idea by @WolfTechnology).

The barrier has 4 sections: Featured, Appearance, Availability, and All Options.

Featured:

  • Barrier Shape: Rectangle or Circle
  • Active on Game Start: Yes or No; Active on start or not
  • Barrier Color: Pretty much every one

Appearance:

  • Barrier Shape: See Featured
  • Barrier Color: See Featured
  • Alpha: Transparency Level
  • Show Border: Yes or No; Show or don’t Show border
  • Visible in Game: Yes or No; Visible or not

Availability:

  • Active on Game Start: See Featured
  • Active Scope: Yes or No; If deactivating or activating applies for all players, one team, or one player
  • Activate when receiving on: Channel; when channel is broadcasted, activate barrier
  • Deactivate when receiving on: Channel; when channel is broadcasted, deactivate barrier

All Options:
All of the above

Change Size:
Screenshot 2023-10-07 at 12.45.11 PM
Located at the bottom left corner of editing screen when clicking on barrier
Drag corners to resize barrier. As of the December 11 update, barriers can now be rotated.

Wires:
Barriers can only be wired to, not wired from. They have to options to choose from: Activate Barrier and Deactivate Barrier.

More Info:
Barrier Devices take up 20 memory

Notification

By Blizzy


The Notification Device is pretty overlooked, you know? Some guides use them, but barely any.
Sections in Notification: Featured, and All options. Also, Blocks is in the corner.

I will just go straight to All Options:

  • Notification Title: Text Input, will be bold, top of Notification
  • Notification Content: Text Input, below Title, normal text
  • Send Notification when receiving on: Channel Text Input
  • Notification Type: Dropdown Menu, See Types of Notifications
  • Notification Placement: Dropdown Menu, Options: Top Right, Top Left, Bottom Right, Bottom Left
  • Notification Duration: Dropdown Menu; Options: Auto(Time set by creators), or Specific Time Amount(Set by self)
  • Send Notification To: Dropdown Menu, See Sending Notifications

Types of Notifications
None:


Info:

Success:

Warning:

Error:

Send Notification To
Triggering Player: Player who triggered and sent the notification
All on Triggering Player’s Team: Everyone who is on the Player who triggered and sent the notification’s team
All on Triggering Player’s Team, except for Triggering Player: Everyone who is on the Player who triggered and sent the notification’s team, except for the Triggering Player
Everybody: Every player in game

Blocks
If you want to know more about blocks, see this.

Go to the Blocks interface, look at the two boxes. On wire pulse means when the notification has a wire leading from something to the notification, and the object is sending a pulse through the wire connection. The channel one is when a certain channel is broadcasted. Anyways, click on the wire pulse one. I will be guiding you on the extra blocks that will only be able to be used on the Notification device.

The one block, I mean.

Click on ‘For this Device’ in the blocks interface. Look at the block. It looks like this:
Screenshot 2023-10-08 at 12.06.48 PM

The ‘Title’ and the ‘Content’ section will set the notification title and content to whatever you put there.
Yes, it’s that simple.

Well, @Blizzy is out!

Text

By CringeKarlScott.

The text device.

One of the most used devices in Gimkit Creative, possibly the most used.

And for good reason.

Text is an essential for all Gimkit games, and the device not only is how you create text (obviously), but is the best device for general block code, allows you to create some custom images , and so much more, with only 60 memory . Now, without further ado, let’s get right into explaining how this amazing device works, and everything you can do with it.

Alright, so, obviously, the main purpose of the text device is to, well, create text, so let’s go over the settings that allow you to do just that, section by section.

Featured:

  • Text (Set the text to display ): Text input, maximum 256 characters

  • Text Size (Set the font size ): Number input, minimum 6, maximum 140

  • Content Scope (When the content of the text changes, who does it apply to? ): Dropdown menu (options: global, player, or team)

Appearance:

  • Text Size: see Featured

  • Font (*Select the font for the text): Dropdown menu (options: Roboto,Staatliches, Rubik, Galindo, Kalam, Bangers, Fugaz One, Outfit, PT Mono)

  • Text Color: color input

  • Alpha (set the transparency of the text. 1 is fully visible, 0 is invisible. ):Number input (minimum 0, maximum 1)

Availability:

  • Visible on Game Start (Should the text be visible when the game starts? ):Dropdown menu (options: Yes or No)

  • Show text when receiving on (Show the text when the device receives a signal from the selected channel ): Text input (must be name of channel)

  • Hide text when receiving on (Hide the text when the device receives a signal from the selected channel ): Text input (must be name of channel)

So that’s all the device options for the Text device!

The Text device does have a Change Size button (see “The Change Size button”).

The Text device’s Change Size button allows you to move, resize, and rotate the text.

Now for some wire interactions!

For wires going into the device, there are three options you can select:

  • Show text: shows the text, making it visible in-game

  • Hide text: hides the text, making it invisible in-game

  • Run wire pulse block: runs the device’s “on wire pulse…” block, if one has been created

You cannot create wires going out of the Text device.

And finally, blocks!

The Text device is compatible with blocks, and therefore has a “Blocks” tab accessible on the left side of the screen when in the editing menu.

This is one of the things that makes the device so useful for general block coding - it takes up little memory, won’t mess with anything else in your game, and can have both a “when receiving on channel…” block and an “on wire pulse…” block!

Er, I guess that’s all you need to know about it for blocks…

Now as a little extra thing, remember earlier when I mentioned creating custom images with the Text device? Well, the way to do that is quite simple: just put emojis in the text! This allows you to get any emoji in your GKC game!

This quirk was first discovered by @BlueBear in this guide.

Anyways that all I have got for the text device, CringeKarlScott out!

Laser Beam

By Haiasi:
The Laser Beam is a device that can damage players that step on the laser.

Featured:

Damage Dealt:

Look in Editing Mode:

Checkpoint

by @Coral
The checkpoint is a newly added device.
image
The checkpoint serves as a spawn point for when a player touches it.
Visible in game: Will the players be able to see the checkpoint, if yes they know that they hit it, if no they will not know that the pushed the button!
Times it can be activated, if the player hits it once, will the checkpoint be gone, if you set it to infinite, then the checkpoint will never be gone!
Activate when receiving on ____
When the checkpoint receives on a channel, it will set the spawn point to where the checkpoint is located!
Deactivate when receiving on _____
Deactivates the checkpoint once receiving a signal from said channel.
Wires out Checkpoint activated ------ Action
When a player hits the checkpoint, will something happen
Wires in Action done ---- Set as active checkpoint
When an action is done, will it set this as the players spawn point!
This device looks cool, and the function is cool! What will you do with this? Create a galaxy, or make a long RPG game?
It also plays a sound effect when you step on it, kinda like a bubble popping.

Damage Boost

By Haiasi:

The Damage Boost is a device that, you guessed it, can boost a player’s damage by x # for a set amount of time!
IMG_0720

Boost Amount

IMG_0721
When a player deals damage, multiply the output by x.

Boost Duration

Allows you to change how long the boost lasts for when activated from either a wire or channel (the damage boost device cannot wire to other devices, only from other devices.)

Wires In:

(Wires In) > Activate Damage Boost

(Wires In) > Deactivate Damage Boost


Channels:

Activate When Receiving On:

Activate the Damage Boost when receiving a signal from a channel

Deactivate Boost When Receiving On:

Deactivate The Boost When Receiving a signal from a channel

Damager

image

The long awaited damager device is finally here! It allows you to damage players and can be used for creating a damaging zone such as in battle royale games, as well as create some pretty cool effects.

These are it’s settings:

Damage Amount

In-game Desription: The amount of damage dealt to the player.
Max damage is 10000 damage and minimum is 1. The default damage number preset by Gimkit is 15 damage.

image

Damage player when receiving on

In-game Description: Damage the triggering player when the device receives a signal from the selected channel.
Basically it allows the user to input a channel that when broadcast or run will trigger the damager.

image

Knockout Activity Feed Message

In-game Description: When the damage applied knocks out a player, this message will be displayed in the activity feed. Use {name} to insert the player’s name.
This is a unique setting currently only applicable for the damager. It allows you to display a custom Activity Feed message when someone gets knocked out by the damager. This also supports color tags!

Crafting Table

By CassiusDoomlorde
image
or
image

The operation of this device is the same as walking up to a Farmchain plot. You press enter or tap to enter a sidebar of all the recipes. Each recipe can be inspected. The recipes come from Crafting Recipe devices placed on the map. The item is shown slowly appearing on top of the table.

The first option is an aesthetic toggle between Crafting Table and Farming Plot.

The second setting is crafting scope (is the table crafting/finished).

The third setting is the table group. This controls what recipes can be crafted there. Only recipes with a matching group can be crafted.

The next tab is the channel tab. The channel outputs are ‘When Item Begins Crafting’, ‘When Item Finishes Crafting’, ‘When Item is Collected’, and ‘When Item Expires’.

Crafting Recipe

By CassiusDoomlorde
image

The first setting for this device is the item crafted. All items, consumables, and gadgets are craftable.

The next setting is the quantity of items crafted.

The third setting is the number of different item types required to craft. This can be from one to five.

The fourth setting is the required item.

The fifth is the quantity of that item.

Settings four and five are duplicated so you have as many of the fields as is required by setting three.

The other settings are in the ‘Details’ section.

The first of these is the time that the item takes to craft. Values are Instant, 1, 3, 5, 10, 20, and 30 seconds, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 15, and 20 minutes.

The second is a toggle for whether the item expires.

The third is the time after crafting that the item will expire. The values are the same as the crafting time, but Instant through 4 seconds are not there.

The final value is the group that the recipe belongs to, which determines which tables it can be crafted at.
