Flash productivity tools: Random instance swapper


In some cases it is nice to have a tool, that just gives that helping hand for boring tasks.

While approaching the deadline of House of Anubis (game), MediaMonks needed a tool that helps with randomizing tiles. The levels has a huge amount of walls and tiles in it’s library, since it is build in Flash with MovieClips on stage. For the quick win, this simple tool allowed to randomize selected clips on stage with a selection from our library. Of course; to refine it, you’ll need more than just a MovieClip swapping tool, but we love to share this tool with you anyway in case you need it.

How to: Select multiple library symbols, select multiple items on stage. Run command. Randomize.
