Decentraland Awesome Repository

Welcome to the Decentraland Awesome repository!

Here you can find content to help you build scenes for Decentraland. Here you'll find links to:

If you can think of an example that is easy to understand and covers valuable topics that aren't covered here, you're encouraged to create a Pull Request and contribute!

If something doesn’t work, please file an issue.

Key Concepts

Article Thumbnail Description
Introduction to Entities, Components & Systems A walkthrough that starts from scratch and covers most of the main ideas to understand: Entities, Components, Systems, and more.
Motion & Animations - Part 1 A walkthrough that covers animating an entity and making it move to follow a path.
Motion & Animations - Part 2 Building up on the previous part, this part covers alternating animations, and responding to the player's proximity.

For a fully comprehensive introduction, we also recommend you read the following topics from the Documentation:

See the Decentraland documentation to find more specific information about various other.



Example Thumbnail Description
Sliding Door Use the Utils library to shift the position of a door gradually. Clicks on the door toggle it from open to closed.
Door Use the Utils library to rotate a door gradually. Clicks on the door toggle it from open to closed.
Puffer Use the Utils library to scale items and delay actions. Also include 3D models and sounds.
Button events A simple example of each way in which players can use button events to interact with the scene. Each shape's color is activated by interacting with it in a special way.
Jukebox Play different songs by pressing buttons on a jukebox.
Hypno Wheels A first encounter with Systems, Custom Components and Component Groups. Check out the related tutorial.)
Shark Animation Control animations on a 3D model. Toggle them on or off when clicking on the model.
Gnark Patrolling A character walks along a fixed path, using lerp over each segment of the path. If you approach it, it will switch states to yelling at you. Check out the related tutorial.
Hummingbirds A new bird spawns every time you click a tree. Each bird moves on its own to random positions.
Smoke Use planes to create a particle system that simulates smoke rising.
Dance Floor Combines animations, sound, and tiles on the floor that randomly change color to the beat.
Laser-Ray Casting Use ray casting to trace a line in space and check for intersections. Cubes change material when hit by the laser. They also change when being pointed at by the player.
UV Map A simple scene that shows a spritesheet animation of a robot talking. The different expressions of the robot are all stored in the same image.
Swimming in Circles Move a shark along the segments of a curve to swim in circles.
Block Dog A simple AI character that randomly chooses what action to take: follow you, sit or remain idle. Tell it to sit or stand up by clicking it, or tell it to drink water by clicking its bowl.
Workspaces Use workspaces to preview multiple adjacent scenes/portable experiences at onces and see how they interact.
