Continuing the discussion from here…

Hey hopscotchers! This game mechanic is a new thing that I accidentally (I really discovered this on accident). Use in any car/racing game (or wherever you want), as long as you give credit! Yeah, I am proud of this discovery, so I want to show it to you!

This is a rocket/booster effect ideal for future racing games and Hopscotch’s very own Jeep! It may sound complicated to make but to ensure it’s not rocket science, here’s a step-by-step tutorial to make this:


πš‚πšπšŽπš™ 𝟷: π™°πšπš 𝚊 πš›πšžπš•πšŽ

This works best when a button is tapped. Insert When ([Name of Object]) is tapped into the code. Using When Game Starts is not recommended.


πš‚πšπšŽπš™ 𝟸: π™°πšπš 𝚊 πš‹πšžπšπšπš˜πš— 𝚎𝚏𝚏𝚎𝚌𝚝 (π™Ύπš™πšπš’πš˜πš—πšŠπš•)

To ensure that users will know that the action has been preformed, add a button effect. For example, use a scaling effect where the button scales by 10 percent and after a short breath of time, it goes back to normal size.


πš‚πšπšŽπš™ 𝟹: π™ΌπšŠπš”πšŽ πšπš‘πšŽ πš‹πšžπšπšπš˜πš— πšŒπš•πš˜πš—πšŽ πš’πšπšœπšŽπš•πš

This method includes the use of clones. Make the object clone itself up to 35 times.

Now that you coded this entire rule, next move onto the next one!


πš‚πšπšŽπš™ 𝟺: π™²πš˜πšπšŽ πš πš‘πšŠπš πšπš‘πšŽ πšŒπš•πš˜πš—πšŽπšœ 𝚍𝚘

Part 1: Making the effect
First, you will need to create 2 variables. Name them whatever you want! One will be for the clone’s x pos and the other will substitute for clone index.

We first have to code the clone’s x pos. To do this, each time a clone is created, the x pos variable that you created should increase depending on the size you want the effect to be. This will require trial and error to justify. Then put a repeat block for actions that repeat 100 times and insert
Set Size percent ([[Self] Size as a percent] + [Number that depends on size of effect]])
Set Invisibility percent ([[Self] Invisibility as a percent] + [1])

Part 2: How to make it repeat properly
How to use the clone index substitution is shown below:

This variable has to be created in order for the x pos and your β€œclone index” variable to be reset. To make this effect work as many times as possible, create a boolean/conditional saying Check Once If [Variable Substituting for Clone Index] = [Number of Clones Created each time].
Then insert set variable blocks and set the β€œx pos” and β€œvariable substituting for clone index” both to 0.

Yeah, I try to be positive at all times. But I can give some constructive criticism as well, which I do sometimes. However, I couldn’t figure out anything that can be improved with your project, honestly!

Also, I’m glad that you gave a great compliment bc I said this in one of the first posts, I spent over an hour constructing the post alone
