Semi-circle array containing target and distractor objects
 
Hi,

I wonder if someone can help me, I am trying to set up a semi-circle array of positions on the left hand side of the screen, depending on how many distractors are selected (e.g. either 2, 4, 6 or 8) each position should contain one target object and the rest distractors, these should be randomised. I then want the target position to be a hotspot. But at this stage I'm having trouble just getting an array of positions where I want them with the correct objects in them.

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Thank you.

Code:

import viz
import viztask
import random
viz.go()

Z_dist = -5
#viz.move(0,0,Z_dist)
viz.MainView.move(0.5,0,-10)

# Add distractor and target objects
ballsize = [2.0,2.0,2.0,1.0,1.0,1.0]

# Distractor ball
distractor = viz.add('soccerball.ive')
distractor.setScale(ballsize[0],ballsize[1],2)
distractor.addAction(vizact.spin(0,1,0,100))

# Target Ball
target = viz.add('ball.wrl')
target.setScale(ballsize[3],ballsize[4],1)
target.addAction(vizact.spin(0,1,0,100))

# Set up zones for the objects to appear on the screen
choice = ['2', '4', '6', '8']
select  = viz.choose('How many distractors?', choice)

#make a list with the objects in it
objects = [distractor,target]

# keep 2 positions in an array
pos = [[-1.0,0.0,Z_dist],[-1.0,0.5,Z_dist],[-2.0,1.0,Z_dist],[-1.0,1.5,Z_dist],[-1.0,2.0,Z_dist],[-1.0,2.5,Z_dist],[-1.0,3.0,Z_dist],[-1.0,3.5,Z_dist]]

rand_positions = []

def sceneOn(num):
        global rand_positions
        positions = [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7]
        if select == 0:

                #set objects to 2 different random positions
                rand_positions = random.sample(positions,2)

                objects[0].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[0]])
                objects[1].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[1]])

        if select == 1:

                #set objects to 4 different random positions
                rand_positions = random.sample(positions,4)
               
                objects[0].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[0]])
                objects[0].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[1]])
                objects[0].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[2]])
                objects[1].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[3]])

        if select == 2:

                #set objects to 4 different random positions
                rand_positions = random.sample(positions,6)
               
                objects[0].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[0]])
                objects[0].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[1]])
                objects[0].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[2]])
                objects[0].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[3]])
                objects[0].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[4]])
                objects[1].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[5]])
               
        if select == 3:
                rand_positions = random.sample(positions,8)
               
                objects[0].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[0]])
                objects[0].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[1]])
                objects[0].setPosition(pos[rand_positions[2]])

sceneOn(1)

Your script was only creating 2 object, even when more than 2 distractors were selected. I modified your script to dynamically create the objects based on the number of distractors. I also modified the sceneOn function to be more general in positioning the objects.

I'm still not sure what you mean by placing the objects in a semi-circle. The list of positions you have pretty much places all the objects in a vertical line.

Anyway, here's the modified script:
Code:

import viz
import viztask
import random
viz.go()

Z_dist = -5
#viz.move(0,0,Z_dist)
viz.MainView.move(0.5,0,-10)

# Add distractor and target objects
ballsize = [2.0,2.0,2.0,1.0,1.0,1.0]

# Set up zones for the objects to appear on the screen
choice = ['2', '4', '6', '8']
select  = viz.choose('How many distractors?', choice)
numDistractors = int(choice[select])

#make a list with the objects in it
objects = []

# Distractor ball
for x in range(numDistractors-1):
        distractor = viz.add('soccerball.ive')
        distractor.setScale(ballsize[0],ballsize[1],2)
        distractor.addAction(vizact.spin(0,1,0,100))
        objects.append(distractor)

# Target Ball
target = viz.add('ball.wrl')
target.setScale(ballsize[3],ballsize[4],1)
target.addAction(vizact.spin(0,1,0,100))
objects.append(target)

# keep 2 positions in an array
pos = [[-1.0,0.0,Z_dist],[-1.0,0.5,Z_dist],[-2.0,1.0,Z_dist],[-1.0,1.5,Z_dist],[-1.0,2.0,Z_dist],[-1.0,2.5,Z_dist],[-1.0,3.0,Z_dist],[-1.0,3.5,Z_dist]]

def sceneOn(num):
       
        # Get random sample of positions
        rand_positions = random.sample(pos,numDistractors)
       
        # Apply positions to objects
        for p,o in zip(rand_positions,objects):
                o.setPosition(p)

sceneOn(1)

Thanks very much for your reply. I have been working hard on this code and it is now completely different from when I posted my initial question. Please see below.

I am having some problems which I would really appreciate help with:

1. how do I stop the avatar going out of the screen?
2. when the avatar's right arm hits the target, I want the avatar to do something e.g. dance, if the avatars right arm hits a distractor then it should something else, e.g. ball should change colour - I have tried setting this up using collisions and hotspots and can't get either to work?
3. I still haven't managed to get the objects in a semi-circle so that they are all equidistant from the avatar start position

Any help would be huegly appreciated. Sorry the code is such a mess, any help with tidying it up would also be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Sorry, forgot to mention there is also a ball in position 0,0 which I can't seem to get rid of.

Thanks again.
