Hi all, this is a free node + demo template for Buildbox 3, hope you'll enjoy it!

What does it do?
This node allows you to keep track of time elapsed in real world since the first it was triggered or since the last time it was triggered. It can either be used as just a counter or to trigger events.

Example: you want to have a prize to be available once every day to tempt players to open the game more frequently, you can do it with this node.

This node can manage as many counters/events as you wish, just use the Counter ID attribute to assign a number to the event and that's it!
It can be configured in four different modes to cover an ample set of needs.
Detailed usage instructions are included in the package.

A few case uses
- create rewards the player can obtain only once every hour or every day or whichever time interval you wish. 
- enable bonuses, in game objects or powerups only after a certain amount of time has past.
- use it as a simple counter to allow for events to unfold in a story/time driven game.

Thanks for sharing this amazing piece of asset. Could you please update the asset to work with latest version of buildbox .

Hey! You're welcome, I've just tested it with BB 3.3.5, 3.3.6 and 3.3.7 (beta) and it looks like it works fine; have you found any problem? On which BB version?
