Objects + Arrays | ICM #4

The assignment this week was to start working with Objects and Arrays. In addition we were asked to share some code with a classmate and try to integrate that into a sketch (more on this later). I initially started to “objectify” my peeps from the Evil peeps game I’ve been working on.

At first I had some issues with where the peeps were being placed and had a difficult time replicating the functionality I had before. However, after some playing around I eventually got the peeps to recognize when another peep had been placed within 5 pixels or so which allowed me to finally make a fail screen. The key was using a for loop with a peeps.lenght limit as opposed to other values I had included. I think this had to do with the timer that I was using to generate new peeps.

Then I started working with my parter, Jess’s code. She had a series of circles bouncing around the screen and I thought it would be cool to include that as part of the fail screen.

In preparation I made the fail square fit into the existing menu bar and hoped that the circles could be evil peep heads that bounce around after you loose.

Unfortunately I could only get one static circle to form before P5 would get “Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘move’ of undefined” I’m not sure why but I couldn’t get the circles/ball function to be recognized by the editor no matter how I tried to configure it. So I think this week I became familiar with constructors but theres still a lot I need to learn before I can build and implement these things easily.
