I have a text (that displays ammo), which looks rather sloppy when it [text] is close to the camera. How would I convert this to a mesh that will still function as a text? I know I can convert it with Alt+C, but it stops functioning as a text object. I saw some videos, and it looks like I will have to use the UV editor with each number separate. How can I have a text display as a mesh, but still keep its function as a text object?

You can do this with the special text property only found in text objects.

enter image description here

In this case, I am using Always ➨ And ➨ Property

The property actuator copies another property from a different object. I am using the cube from this question to change the properties so you can see it updating.

I have two text objects, neither one of them have been transformed into a mesh. they both retain there edibility as a text object.

In this example, the text is white. see this question to change the text color.

  • $\begingroup$ What kinda of text functions do you want them to have? $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 15, 2015 at 3:05
  • $\begingroup$ @X-27 so they don't look 8-bit when camera is close to them. $\endgroup$
