Code Generator for Playmaker creates custom Actions to access BGDatabase data (many fields are supported, but not all the fields)

Apart from Code Generation, you can use Playmaker's GetProperty and SetProperty actions with Generated MonoBehaviour to get/set any property from GameObject, hooked up to database.

Supported custom actions

With custom actions you have full control over database data- you can select/add/update/delete rows. Custom actions are generated for each table
# Action Description
1 GetByIndex Retrieve field values from database by row's index. This is the best method to use inside for-each loop
2 GetById Retrieve field values from database by row's id.
3 GetByName Retrieve field values from database by row's name.
4 SetByIndex Set field values to database by row's index.
5 SetById Set field values to database by row's id.
6 SetByName Set field values to database by row's name.
7 Count Retrieve total number of rows
8 Create Create a new row
9 Delete Delete a row by its index

How to generate actions

Open BGDatabase window Window->BGDatabase

Select Settings tab, and choose Playmaker

Fill parameters and press Generate button

Once you chose your naming scheme package + Classes name prefix/Field name prefix and used your generated actions in PLaymaker's state machines, you should not change these settings, otherwise the references to these actions will be lost. The same applies to tables/fields names.


  1. If you plan to use Addressables system- avoid using [ and ] symbols in your folders names, cause these symbols interfere with Addressables naming convention


Parameter name Description
Code Generator Class to use for code generation (use the default one)
Source file Source file to use for generated C# classes (actions). All classes will be put into one single .cs file, which should be under your project folder
Package Package (C# namespace) for generated classes. For example MySpace. You can safely leave this setting blank.
Class names prefix Prefix to use for each class name. So if you use P_ prefix, the final class (action) name for MyTable table and GetById action will be P_MyTableGetById. We have multiple code generators, so using different prefixes for different code generators helps to differentiate generated classes and avoid naming collisions
Field names prefix Prefix to use for each generated property name. So if you use f_ prefix, the final name for intField field will be f_intField. You can safely leave this setting blank.
Action category Playmaker's action category to put all generated classes (actions) in. Default is BansheeGz
