Goodies Bag is an important menu that will only appear in the Create Mode. Goodies permit you to create the landscape of your level and to add different objects to it. Goodies Bag in combination with Tools bag will let you to also create your own functional objects and save them for posterior use.
To select Goodies Bag menu press to open the Popit Menu, then move your cursor to the Tools Bag menu and press for accessing to it. Most of the content in this menu will have to be unblocked by and completing Create Tutorials.
There are # pages in the Goodies Bag: Materials, Objects, My Objects, Hearted ...
There is a huge variety of materials in LittleBigPlanet. Materials are used to create all other objects and there are different materials with different properties each. Additionally, most of the basic materials have a variety of textures and colors for you to choose; most of these textures and colors have to be found first in bubbles in Story Mode.
Whenever you select the desired material with then you'll be asked to select a brush shape. Brush shapes determine the shape the material will have whenever you press just once. Similar to textures, to have more shapes you have to unlock them; you do it by completing some Create Tutorials.
- Left Stick: move material horizontally or vertically.
- Right Stick:
- Up-Down: Increase or decrease size of material.
- Left-Right: Rotate material.
- L1-L2: Switch material between planes.
- R1-R2: Increase or decrease material thickness (there are 4 thicknesses to choose).
- : Place material. Hold it to make a continuous line while you move material.
- : Use as eraser. Each material can erase any other material.
- : Return.
Placed materials have some properties depending on their type: Lighter materials can be pushed easier or crushed if it is applied enough pressure. Some materials can be exploded or grabbed, and some hold special properties. We explain below the properties of each material.
Here you will be able to find the Capture Object tool, it is also available in all other pages of Goodies Bag. With Capture Object it is possible to select and save an object you have created for then use it in all the levels you want or share it with others!
To use it select Capture Object, then use the Left and Right Sticks to adjust the selection area to surround the object you want to save (the object will be highlighted to let you know when it's ready), then press to save the object. You will be taken to the My Objects page, where you can press if your object wasn't saved as expected, or to assign it a name.
Basic materials are materials that hold different properties among themselves. Some of these materials have their own sections where you can choose more colors or textures, if not, you may add color to them with the help of stickers.
|Cardboard is a light material but cannot be grabbed, it is often used to make thin objects or to paste stickers to it. As cardboard is weak, it can be easily blown up with explosives. Cardboard has more textures and colors for you to choose.|
|Dark Matter is a special material with a very unique property: it's unmovable. It also cannot be grabbed nor exploded. You don't even have more colors for it! Dark Matter becomes handy when you want to have some floaty platforms, you just have to attach something to it and it will stay where you place it. Note that dark matter has round edges/verticies so if you were to cut into another object with dark matter, it will create as many edges as it will take for the object to form the shape of the dark matter, costing you some thermometer juice.|
|Dissolve is another special material, when triggered it disappears. That property makes Dissolve very useful for traps and switches, maybe a must-have for your level. It has the same physical properties of Polystyrene and doesn't have extra textures so you will have to paint it to remove that green color.|
|Glass is a medium-weighted material on which objects (and Sackpersons) slip easily, but not as easy as on ice. Glass cannot be grabbed nor exploded, and it has some colors to choose from. As supposed, glass is transparent so it is often used as a thin wall.|
|Metal is the weightiest and strongest material of all, so it cannot be blown up nor crushed. Metal cannot be grabbed either, so this lack of special properties makes it useful only for level structure, decoration or really special purposes.|
|Peach Floaty is a special material that has the same properties as Sponge, however has the very special property of floating up! Peach Floaty is literally lighter than air so it can easily fly up away if it is not attached to something. Peach Floaty has that curious texture and you can't get more textures for it.|
|Pink Floaty is almost the same as Peach Floaty with the only difference that Pink Floaty has the same weight as air so it will stay where you place it, but it's still movable: if something hangs from it, it will go down; if something pushes it, it will go flying away in that direction! It may have many uses, use your creativity.|
|Polystyrene is the lightest material of all (excluding Floaties) and is also grabbable, so results easy to hang with it along the level. Polystyrene can also be exploded, so think of it as a fragile material, use it in structures you want to push over. Polystyrene has its textures section but you can only find one more texture on it. for those of you who are wondering what polystyrene is, it is packaging foam you see in various shipping boxes.|
|Rubber is a medium-weighted material that cannot be grabbed nor blown up with explosives. It has good traction so it is difficult to slip on it, for the same reason it is generally used for wheels. There are no more textures or colors for rubber.|
|Sponge is a light material that is commonly used as a thing to grab. It has colorful textures and rounded borders so it's easy to identify. If you want to place grabable things difficult to notice use Polystyrene. As well as the other light materials, Sponge can be blown up and is easily crushed.|
|Stone is a heavy material with no extra properties. It is used mainly for landscape and level structure. Stone colors and textures are varied to give your level just the look you want.|
|Wood is said to be the basic building material. It has medium weight and cannot be grabbed; wood cannot be exploded but can be crushed. Due to its flat surface in all of its textures is easy to paint and perfect to attach stickers. It is a good idea to use Wood for things you want to push without rotating.|
