Custom Datatypes - think ParticleSystem

thank you for explanation, fixed.D

Quick notes testing with beta37 (differences from video):

  • Double click doesn’t create input/output pins automatically (but can choose that as an option in the NodeBrowser which works).
  • A few more options appear in the Patch type
  • Error ‘Type parameters are not allowed in non-generic patches’ shows up at some points (ignoring so far)
  • Particle output on Update node wasn’t showing (switching the patch to ‘Class’ then back to ‘Record’ fixed this)
  • Had to right click to select ‘Generic’
  • RectangleAnchor should be set to Center
  • Configure -> Show Apply on the Clear node

that is the problem with video tutorials that they get outdated over time. so thanks @elliotwoods for following up on this which can hopefully ease confusion for future watchers.

Thanks for this tutorial Joreg!
This answered many of my questions in VL
