Eleven Behaviours Scenes

 Contents..

Peg story locations using coloured icons

I have been playing with the idea of building up location scenes at which to imagine the items I actually want to memorise. Sometimes the locations have a lot of features; but my feeling is that a very simple scene uses less brain focus; and probably helps me to memorise the piece of information that is at the scene: letting me concentrate most on the item that needs learning.

I found a set of simple pictures: icons. I want them to be hovering above the item that I want to remember. I believe that I can re-use an icon so that it appears in many scenes - but I need to colour it differently each time so that it is markedly unique.

These screen examples are ten colour schemes that I want to use: the small rectangle is the colour of the icon; and the overall background colour helps to make the scene different to other scenes which use the same icon.

And I am also experimenting with giving each scene's icon a particular movement. There are 11 movements listed; and they are applied in a looping routine. I divide a scene number by 11 and use the remainder to tell me how the icon should move in an animated way. Eg. Scene 12 uses the remainder of 12 divided by 11: remainder 1; so use movement behaviour #1.

With 300 icons, I can attempt a 3000 scene system. I would do the 'divide by 11' maths on just two digits of the scene number. Eg. Scene 1234 just needs the maths done on the 34; otherwise, it is too much work!

Remainder Behaviour
0 The object gets bigger: it enlarges to twice the size.
1 A jet of fire occurs beneath the object and it rises and floats hovering. The flame is the same colour as the object.
2 The object shoots straight line rays a brief distance from itself: to the left, right and overhead. The short rays are the same colour as the object.
3 The object emits spaced waves of radiation that are the same shape as the outline of the object. The colour of the waves is the same colour as the object.
4 Drips (the same colour as the object) drip down from the object.
5 The object whizzes a short distance left and then a short distance right – repeatedly.
6 Tour. The object does a circular tour: a clockwise route rising, travelling around in a circle and repeating the circuit.
7 Clouds of smoke (the same colour as the object) rise up above the object.
8 The object splits down the middle and the two halves collapse to the left and right respectively.
9 The object rotates on the spot, clockwise (like a wheel turning on the spot).
10 The object wobbles on the spot as a vibrating movement.

I need the objects to be quite simply drawn: icons. I can use 2D icons which look distinctive and which are free to use. I have located 300 such icons. So I have 300 icons in total. If I can use each icon in 10 scenes then that would give me scenes from 0001 to 3000.

I found a site: https://game-icons.net which presents free icons; so I have used 300 icons from that site:

So, starting with the alligator clip item 0, expect there to be 10 scenes involving the alligator clip, in sequence. Each scene will have the alligator clip in a different colour and each scene will involve the alligator clip doing a different animated behaviour.

Then the set of 10 Ammonite fossils scenes occur. Each time, the backdrop colour is different within any ten scenes that utilise the same icon. I will re-use the same repeating colour contrast pattern for each 10 icon scenes.
