Suggestions on how to turn grid into SL game/slider/tool

Jan 29, 2019

I have an early retirement grid that I'd like to turn into an interactive tool/game on SL. I wouldn't be using the entire grid, just 10 or so examples. Any suggestions on templates that might be helpful or how to do this without too much trouble?

This is a relatively simple interaction - done in Storyline 2 - using sliders and bars (vertical and horizontal) that could act as more of a helper to visualize where the axes cross.

Another possibility might be to start with just the sliders visible on the base layer and have a submit (or other) button to display the grid on a layer and display the bars (or other shape) where the variables combine on your grid. A button to try again on this layer could hide it and allow further manipulation of the 2 variables.

The sliders could be replaced with text entry fields also for input of the variables, but your grid triggers might need to be changed to look for a range of numbers rather than the single digits used in the slider.

Hopefully it's an idea generator anyway.
