Detecting if I'm in a "Connection" control point
#1
Hey,

So I'm making a system where I'm going to use a control point before a connection to initiate some sort of routine that asks if I want to split left/right.  Then once I'm at the last CP, there's a connection there for left or right splines to carry on.

Problem on is I find almost no help in the documentation or videos about this, so I'm essentially reverse engineering the examples.  Oh well, better than nothing I guess.

Here's the code I'm using so far,mostly borrowed from 12-Train:

Code:
   public void OnCPReached (CurvySplineMoveEventArgs e)
   {
       Debug.Log("CP!");

       var mData = e.ControlPoint.GetMetadata<metaTest>();
       if (mData)
       {
           Debug.Log("MD!");
           
           mData.doubleInt();
           cpCount = mData.testInt;
       }

       var connection = e.ControlPoint.Connection.OtherControlPoints(e.ControlPoint)[0];
       if (connection)
       {
           Debug.Log("Connection!");
           //Debug.Log(e.ControlPoint.Connection.OtherControlPoints(e.ControlPoint)[0]);
           //e.Follow(e.ControlPoint.Connection.OtherControlPoints(e.ControlPoint)[0]);
           //SplineController controller = (SplineController)e.Sender;
           //controller.Spline = e.Spline;
           //controller.RelativePosition = e.TF;

       }
   }

Pretty simple, doesn't really do anything yet.  Thing is, for the last chunk it stops everything, and tells me there's a Null Reference Exception:

Code:
NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

FluffyUnderware.Curvy.CurvyController.Update () (at Assets/Packages/Curvy/Base/CurvyController.cs:632)

My line of thought is that if I can detect if I'm currently in a Connection node, then I can tell Curvy to go Left/Right based on the players choice.  How do i detect this?

Perhaps there's an even simpler way to go about what I want to achieve?

If e.ControlPoint.Connection == null, then you are on a control point that is not connected. And your null reference exception is because you don't test if e.ControlPoint.Connection is not null before using it.
Please consider leaving a review for Curvy. This will help a lot keeping Curvy relevant in the eyes of the Asset Store algorithm.
