    I’m wanting to have two nodes one with a value input and another with a value output, the reason I need it to be a text instead of the real Type…

    Imagine it like, a type-casted string, but without creating any new classes, (where nodes can specify string of type Country, or string of type Weapon, and other nodes that return those types would be hooked up, but this needs to be dynamic, so I can change these things at run time)

    Is this possible at all? I looked into manually creating ValueInput’s but I can’t find any string location for a typecasting like this, but maybe I need to just make my own that extends from ValueInput?



    I am not really sure I completely understood what you are after 🙂
    Are you referring to creating a custom node code which has a string value input?
    If so, this can be done in many ways, but the easiest one is creating what is called a SimplexNode [DOCS LINK].

    here is a very simple example of a node with a string ValueInput and a string ValueOutput (as well as Flow Input and Out):

    Is that close to what you are after?

    Please refer to the docs link above for a reference to the various SimplexNode types you can derive from and how to use them, but if you still have any questions at all, please let me know.

    Thank you.
