These effects are primarily intended for use in “mini game” styles or more advanced interactive styles, like Interactive Blast. On their own they won’t actually trigger anything, when used in combination with my prop and styles using they can be put together to allow for mapping the branches in a mini-game (more to come).
This is a very cool feature. I feel like there is a ton of potential for creating games or mini-games based on proffieboard sabers, and features like this are very empowering for designing them. I won’t be surprised if five years from now we end up with some AR enabled games. Like LARP meets laser tag meets orienteering.
