How to apply Random Numbers List into another script?

Hi, I'm a newbie for unity game develop. Recently I tried to make a card game. I made 11 cards with specify ID like Card1, Card2 to Card11 and are going to make more card.

Below is my part of the code in GameManager script

void StartGame()

    {

        player.Init(new List<int>() { 1, 3, 4, 4, 5, 1, 5, 5, 5, 6, 2, 3, 3, 3, 4, 6, 3, 8, 1, 1, 1, 9, 4, 9, 5, 3, 3, 1, 3, 2 });

        enemy.Init(new List<int>() { 1, 4, 7, 6, 11, 2, 2, 7, 11, 4, 4, 3, 9, 1, 4, 4, 4, 1, 5, 6, 9, 3, 3, 3, 8, 4, 5, 8, 2, 4 });

    }

and I make new script to get the random list in PrintRandomElements script:

using System.Collections;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using UnityEngine;

 

public class PrintRandomElements : MonoBehaviour

{

    List<int> list = new List<int> { 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 5, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 };

 

    List<T> GetRandomElements<T>(List<T> inputList, int count)

    {

        List<T> outputList = new List<T>();

        for (int i = 0; i < count; i++)

        {

            int index = Random.Range(1, inputList.Count);

            outputList.Add(inputList[index]);

        }

        return outputList;

    }

 

    void Update()

    {

        if(Input.GetMouseButtonDown(0))

        {

            var randomList = GetRandomElements(list, 30);

            Debug.Log(string.Join(", ", randomList));

        }

    }

I can get the random number in list and I just need to copy and paste into GameManager script above. I'm searching a way to make it run random deck automatically. So that I can enjoy fighting with AI with random deck without need to copy and paste everytimes. I have searched many places but I can't find any good solution for this issue. Is it possible to do something like below:

void Start()

    {

        if(Input.GetMouseButtonDown(0))

        {

            var randomList = GetRandomElements(list, 30);

           DeckA = Debug.Log(string.Join(", ", randomList));

 DeckB = Debug.Log(string.Join(", ", randomList));

        }

    }

void Start()

    {

        player.Init(new List<int>() { DeckA });

        enemy.Init(new List<int>() { DeckB });

    }

Thank you.

  • Is it possible to mix 2 scripts into 1 script? So I will no longer need to copy and paste the long random list.

  • Hi, I'm not sure if I understand your problem quite well, but it seems to me that you can solve it like this:

    1. add this line to the GameManager script: public PrintRandomElements randomListGenerator;
    2. drag the randomListGenerator object to the slot for this randomListGenerator variable in Unity Editor
    3. so that you can use a line like this to get your random list: var randomList = randomListGenerator.GetRandomElements(inputList,30);

    Step 1 and 2 can also be done with a private variable, just use a GetComponent function
