I really liked this tutorial, it laid out the steps to go through very clearly.

I am not sure what this bit is referring to, regarding the data for the vines:

Length is specified in the plist measured in @1x, so you need to multiply by the actual screen scale. You do this because a β€œfixed” length would either be too loose (for lower resolutions) or too tight (for higher resolutions such as the 6 Plus).

The actual code for getting the length seems to just use it as is:

let length = Int(vineData[β€œlength”] as! NSNumber)

It seems to just be the count of the segments in the vine, so I’m not clear why you would need to scale it.

Thanks for a nice tutorial!

You are absolutely right. That explanation is leftover from a previous version of the tutorial. Will fix!

Thank you!
