When an object is being moved a field of small dots will appear around it. These dots represent points on the Editing Plane grid.
If the Editor camera is aligned (or close to be aligned) with any specific axis of the Editing Plane objects will maintain alignment with that axis when moved.
When moving an object with the Move icon objects will snap to the ground when near it. Moving an object on a single axis with the handles it will not snap to the ground.
The type of movement can be changed in the Advanced Transform menu. You can select between movement based on global coordinates, local rotation of the object or the Editor camera orientation.
When an object is selected 3 handles will appear around it. Use these handles to move the object on one axis at a time.
The handles are color coded based on which axis they adjust.
|Red edits the X axis||Blue edits the Z axis||Green edits the Y axis|
The handles will appear different depending on the editing mode.

Want to replace an asset quickly in your Hype? Using Asset Replace will allow you to replace one asset with another without losing all of the logic and settings that have been applied to the original object.
Step 1 - Select the asset you'd like to replace and make sure you have the Basic Details panel visible.
Step 2 - Tap the preview image of the asset in the details panel.
Step 3 - Select a new asset from the asset library. If the new asset is part of a set you will be asked which object from the set you want to use.
Step 4 - Asset replaced. All Nodes from the original asset are now a part of the new asset.
These tools can be used to organize & simplify editing.
Holds a collection of Nodes and a reference object. Add-ons can be applied to some objects in a Hype, giving that object the properties contained within the Add-on.
Drag an Add-on to an object to apply it's contents to that object. For example you could apply a jump Add-on to your game character to give it the ability to jump.
For more information on working with Add-ons check out the Add-ons Wiki Entry.
A Reusable contains objects and Nodes. You can create multiple instances of the Reusable.
If you make changes to the original Reusable or any of the instances, the changes apply to the Reusable and all of the instances.
For more information on Reusables check out the Reusables Wiki Entry.
A container contains objects and is most commonly used to organize Logic Nodes.
Drag and drop objects to the Container to add them to it. Containers can be closed and opened, hiding or showing the contained objects in the editor view. Use Containers to organize Logic Nodes and reduce logic clutter in your Hype.
For more information on working with Containers check out the Containers Wiki Entry.
Hold one finger down while using another finger to tap on objects you want to select. This can also be used to select individual objects in an object group.
Tap the Area Pick icon in the Quick Menu to activate a rectangle selection tool for selecting multiple objects quickly!
Playtest your Hype before publishing to ensure everything is working as intended.
Hypes can be saved as private drafts, saved as Unlisted or published publicly.
Drafts are saved to HypeHype servers and are available to your profile across devices but will not appear in public feeds, searches or on your public profile and cannot be used in playlists. If you share a draft link with someone they will be able to play your draft. Drafts will not have saved leaderboards or other social features.
Unlisted Hypes share all the characteristics of published hypes except they do not appear in public feeds, searches or on your public profile. Unlisted Hypes are commonly Hypes that are part of a progression based playlist.
Published Hypes are saved and shared publicly. They can appear in public feeds and searches and are available through the creator profile. Once a Hype is published it can still be edited. When saving changes to a published Hype those changes will immediately be applied to the published Hype.
For more on saving and publishing a Hype see the Save & Publish Wiki
Automatic save system records a backup of your Hype.
When loading a Hype in the Editor you will prompted if you would like to load the Autosave.
In the event of an app crash you will be prompted immediately upon reloading the app if you would like to continue working from the autosaved file.
Autosaves are saved locally on your device.
Nodes give objects attributes and behaviors.
Nodes can be attached to any object.
By default, objects from the asset library already have a Visual Node, which controls the visual properties of the object including it's 3D model & visual materials. Some objects may also have a Physical Node that define physical properties.
Objects that do not have a Visual Node appear in the editor as colored tiles that are generated upon adding new Nodes from the Logic panel. These objects are invisible during gameplay.
All objects can hold up to 9 nodes (not including Visual & Object Nodes). Additional Nodes can be added by opening the details menu of an object and clicking the ➕ button next to the object Node.
Each Node has editable parameters that can be accessed via the Advanced Details panel when an object is selected.
Add new Nodes from the ➕ button, and remove them via the 🗑️ button.
Executing a Node means that the Node performs its function.
Links allow Nodes to work together to create mechanics and logic functions.
Nodes on a selected object can be linked to other nodes and objects by dragging from the link icon on the right of the object widget. This creates a link that indicates its direction by the little arrows traveling along with the link line.
Link color determines its type:
⚫ A grey link is a logical link. It does NOT execute the receiving Node. Grey links only send information like values. A grey link CAN be switched into a red executing link as shown in the graph below. Most links automatically start as Red executing links.
🔴 A red link executes the receiving Node. Executing means that it activates the Node once. For example, pressing a Button activates a Timer. Red logic links can also include other information for the target Node.
🟢 A green link only sends a "target" to the receiving Node.
Tapping the Play button in the lower right while an object is selected will display an overlay of active value changes related to that object’s Nodes during the playtest.
Note: not all Nodes are supported yet.
Glue allows objects to be attached to each other. Glued Objects will behave as a single object in the Hype.
A selected object can be glued to another object by dragging from the glue icon to the object it should be glued to. The selected object will become a child of that object.
Tapping the glue button opens a popup of glue details from which glue connections can be removed.
Glued objects are referred to as a child, and the target object is referred to as a parent. If the glued object has a Physical Node attached, it will inherit physical properties from the parent object. However, its physical material can be changed individually.
When an item is selected a details panel will appear in the upper right corner of the screen. Visual Objects show the Basic details panel while Node Objects will show the Advanced details panel. Switch between Basic and Advanced details panels by tapping the tabs at the top of the panel.
|Asset||Tap the image of the asset to swap it out with a new asset from the Asset Library. See Replace Asset for more.|
The 4 colored spheres represent the Visual Material used by the object. Change the object’s visual materials by tapping on the spheres and selecting.
Note: This menu always shows 4 visual material options even if the object uses less visual materials. For example, in the image above the tree only uses the first 2 visual materials.
Quickly change the object’s physics type to one of 3 commonly used options:
Unmovable Object - The object has a physical body but cannot be moved by physics. This is the “Static” setting in the Physical component.
Dynamic Object - The object has a physical body and can be physically moved by other objects or forces. This is the Dynamic setting in the Physical component
Note: Setting this to Unmovable Object or Dynamic Object will automatically add a Physical Node in the Advanced Details Panel.
|Tap the 3 dots to collapse the details panel. Tap anywhere in the minimized panel to expand it back to the Quick Details panel.|
In the Advanced Details Panel you can access all of the Nodes contained within the object. Additional Nodes can be added by tapping the + Icon to the right of the Object Node.
Tap on a Node to expand its view and edit its parameters.
With the view expanded a small question mark appears over the Node Icon, tap that question mark to access the Wiki entry for that Node.
Links made using nodes in an object will be visualized by lines connecting the component's to the object it is targeting. While the details panel is open this visualization can be changed with the Link Visualization icon at the bottom of the details panel. With this option turned on links will appear between the Details Panel and the targeted objects. With it turned off links will run between the object holding the Nodes and the targeted object.
Effects are used by the Particle Effect Node. Users can create their own particle effects or add pre-made effects from the Asset library. Click the Effects option in the Hamburger Menu to create and edit a Hype's Effects. For more on working with Effects check out Effects Management Wiki & Particle Effects Node Wiki
Hypes have 1 light. The Light Node is automatically in every new Hype. To find the node make sure the logic view is enabled and look for this icon:
The light source in HypeHype is a directional light that provides consistent light throughout the Hype. Set the direction of the light by rotating the Light Node.
On the outside wheel you can select the hue of your color. The inner circle determines the brightness and saturation. The larger of the two circles in the lower left displays the currently selected color while the smaller circle displays the last used color.
Clicking the Currently Selected Color circle will bring up an info panel displaying the RGB & HSV values as well as the HEX code for the selected color. Tapping on this info panel will allow you to manually input the HEX code to create a new color, allowing you to match colors with things even outside of the app.
Clicking the Previously Selected Color will make that the currently selected color. This works across features so, for example, if you are in Particle Effects and make a particle red then go into visual materials and open the color picker that same red will be the previously selected color. This allows you to easily match colors across different aspects of your Hype.
The slider at the bottom adjusts the alpha or transparency of the color.
Editor Notes are small text fields that are only visible in the Editor. Use them to leave notes for yourself or Remixers. Commenting your logic and leaving helpful notes will help you and other creators edit or Remix your Hype.
Editor Notes can be created from the Quick Menu. The the size and color can be adjusted with a selection of pre-set options.
Notes can be left free standing in the editor or Glued to other objects.
