Change spline path at runtime
#1
Shocked 
Dear Curvy Team,

I would like to change/manipulate the spline of the path, where other objects are following along (during the game at runtime).

What's the best way to do it?

Many thanks!

Hi
yourSpline.ControlPointsList to access the control points, then you can modify any value you deem necessary. See methods that start with Set.... and properties that have setters.
Have a nice day

Thanks for your quick reply!

In my case I would like to modify the path smoothly - like having a falloff to other points when the position of one point is changed.

Many thanks!

The logic behind such spline modification is up to you, depending on your use case. I will give you two suggestions as examples:
1- Make your spline a Bezier spline and then use Bezier handles to modify the shape of it
2- Move the red point up by a distance D, and then move its neighboring points by a distance of D/2, and then their neighboring points by D/4, ....
These are just example to show you that you can do that in different ways, so I can't tell you "this is how you should do it". Whatever way you choose to follow, the API allows it.
Have a nice day
