Downblock - Seasoned revised code

So adding features and object to the world I took something from the past to quickly integrate something new to the project in these time dry period. The block that allow the player to descend is kinda of a must in every 2d side scroller so I went back and took the code from Cycle Song down stepping blocks.



Problem is that the code was kinda rough for a simple 2d platformer now adding the physics implementation I was thinking in encountering many problems so the idea was to use the static object in the room such as a creator of downblock and the player activator instance wich is all the time centered where the player is.



This solved some problems but then I encountered other issues when checking if the player was jumping from it or passing through.
It took quite a lot of knocking the head against the wall but here is the final results as shown in the video, with checking if the the activator Y position is above respect to the block creator one.



Well onto creating some game room to test it out and find this solution ricocheting back ahah

Nice! Any progress, no matter how "small," is great progress. Hunting down those logic issues is difficult, but always offers a great sense of reward when finally completed!

Yeah sometimes is hard to say Im happy with results as these stuff seems to have always a way to be improved
