This topic title is intriguing, isn't it? "Mechanic Engineering." And actually, this topic is exactly what it sounds like - mechanic engineering. This topic was made to innovate/invent, explain and list off specific mechanics in Hopscotch code, like pulsation.
What This Topic Is About
We can invent or help each other invent new mechanics for projects, like a mechanic I (I believe I invented it?) made - pulsation!
We can explain how mechanics work - for example, pulsation is based off of an invisible object that moves up and down from 0-100 (y coords) with sin and cos! An object captures the y pos of the object as a constant variable, divides it by a number (this is the pulsation intensity), and adds it with another number (the base size of the object)! Place these numbers in a set size block and a repeat forever loop, and you have pulsation!
You guys might have learned about the scientific method - hypothesis, experiment, prove your hypothesis, then conclusion - but then after that, scientists record their data so other scientists can learn off of that! It's the same thing here - after testing and concluding with your invented mechanic, I'd love it if you could put it on this list of mechanics for others to look at and use with their projects!
If you want your mechanic on this list, please copy and paste this form, copy and paste the questions from this thread, or just tell me the answers for it:
<b>What is your mechanic? Did you invent this mechanic, or someone else? (If someone else invented it, who? If you don't know, just say "unknown" or "I don't know." Please don't steal credit!) Could you give me the link to a project with an example of the mechanic on it?</b>
What is your mechanic?
Did you invent this mechanic, or someone else? (If someone else invented it, who? If you don't know, just say "unknown" or "I don't know." Please don't steal credit!)
Could you give me the link to a project with an example of the mechanic on it?
Two rules for submitting a mechanic:
- No stealing credit. If you didn't make the invention, don't say it's yours. If you do see a mechanic that's not listed here though, I'd love it if you could submit it here! Just put "unknown" down if you don't know who made it, or if you do know who made it, put their name down.
- Submit an actual mechanic, not something to make mechanics with. Don't submit something like "sine" or "inverse tangent", submit something like "Hockey Character AI" or "Gliding object (from point A to point B)"!
If you want to have someone explain a mechanic to you, ask the original inventor, someone you think knows the mechanic or someone who does know the mechanic! They'll probably help you out and explain how it works, so you can make it in one of your projects!
Also, if you see a mechanic with an unknown inventor, please don't hesitate to tell me who made the mechanic! That would be awesome, so we can give credit to everyone/everywhere possible!
