Exchange variables between multiple VCIs

Sample data: Transmitter: Transmit message

Sample data: Receiver: Receive message

UnityPackage:tutorial_message_send.zip

From VCI v0.17, vci.message is implemented which allows transmission and reception of messages in VCI.
This allows for the exchange of variables between multiple VCIs.

In this example, we will create two VCIs, transmitter and receiver, to demonstrate the communication of messages.

onUsing the transmitter VCI will send a message, which triggers a process in the receiving side if the set condition is met.
In this example, the receiving cylinder VCI will jump with upward velocity when it receives a message.

For the detailed information on vci.message, refer to:
