RelationsInspector Adds Dialogue System for Unity Support!

Seldom Tools’ RelationsInspector 1.1.2 now has support for the Dialogue System, and it’s currently 50% off!

This great tool produces visual representations of all kinds of hierarchical data in your project. For the Dialogue System, it will show you:

  • What GameObjects in your scene are connected to Dialogue System conversations, barks, or quests. (Documentation)
  • Which conversations your cross-conversation links connect to. (And you can jump straight to the dialogue entry with a single click!) (Documentation)

For example, this screenshot shows which GameObjects in the Quest Example scene are connected to conversations and quests:

If you have complex dialogue, or any complex data in your project, RelationsInspector looks like a really useful tool. You can get it here:

The full release notes are:

Version 1.6.2
Core

  • Changed: When removing localization fields from template, instances from all assets in database are also cleaned up.
  • Improved: OverrideActorName now also associates GameObject with actor name, making it easier for conversations to find GameObjects for non-primary participants; GameObject name no longer needs to match actor name.
  • Improved: If GameObjects aren’t provided to DialogueManager.StartConversation(), looks for primary actor/conversant’s GameObject in scene.
  • Improved: Quests can now have optional Display Name field to display in UIs instead of Name field.
  • Improved: OnDestroy triggers (including IncrementOnDestroy, PersistentDestructible, etc.) handle application quit gracefully.
  • Improved: AudioWait delays 1 frame to allow previous dialogue entry to finish its sequence cleanup first.
  • Improved: Added QuestLog.SetQuestTrackingAvailable(); QuestLog.SetQuestTracking() also sets tracking available (Trackable) when enabling tracking (Track).
  • Improved: Added recursion limit to Tools.GameObjectHardFind(), which is used to match GameObjects to actor names.
  • Fixed: Build bug with UWP10/Xbox One.
  • Fixed: Unity UI Quest Log Window issues: Windows without entry containers inadvertently showed entries that were in unassigned state; Generic & Mobile styled windows failed to fade in due to an Animator misconfiguration.
  • Dialogue Editor:
    • Fixed: Dialogue Editor serialization issue.
    • Improved: Can reorder quest entries.
    • Improved: Additional database merge option to replace conflicting assets (actors, conversations, etc.) with new version instead of appending.
    • Beta: Search bar in conversation node editor.

Third Party Support

  • Adventure Creator: Updated RefocusResponseMenu action to also auto-focus continue buttons if appropriate, and handle inactive UIs.

  • Realistic FPS Prefab: Updated for RFPS 1.23.
  • S-Inventory: Updated for RFPS 1.23.
  • SLATE: Introduced integration package.
