My shadow of the earth is not being drawn as plan

As you hopefully know, there was a eclipse and a blood moon recently. I wanted to make a project on hopscotch that is a little demonstration. But, it's not working. The way I made it so the shadow would form, slowly getting smaller, is not working. I put this code for the background and shadow drawer.


and I put this code for a different object to set the width of the shadow:

And this is how it comes out:

Yes, I do know the width of the shadow doesn't start at a good size from the beginning, but I will set the right size once the shadow is actually doing what I want it to do. Please help me with this code!

Ok so you need to put the value on the actual I guess c shape block. Because it keeps setting the trail with back to 30.


#3

Try putting the Width value into the "Width: 30" at the top of the leave a trail. Then, delete the change trail width block.

Ok @EmojiSoftware and @ProgrammedCat! I will try that!

@EmojiSoftware and @ProgrammedCat! It worked! Thanks so much!


#6

Your welcome. I'm not a pro, but I have figured that out after staring at the code for a while.

@EmojiSoftware wait. I just realized. I tried to change the sizes and now it doesn't work. Here are the codes and stuff

Hi @Hoppertoscotch, maybe try changing the Repeat 150 times block in your last photo to Repeat 15 times? I saw that you left it as Repeat 15 times in your earlier screenshots.

@t1_hopscotch it worked! Thanks!

Hi @Hoppertoscotch,
I think this might be playing a part in your problem
You can't put move forward -2
Try putting change X by -2

@Queen152, thanks for trying to help me out, this was not the problem and it's all solved now. But thanks for trying to help!


#13

Sorry, but I'm really stumped this time. The first problem was an E-Z fix, but this is a tad more complicated. I'm going to reply again if I find a solution.

@EmojiSoftware I am very grateful that you want to help. But I have the answer already.
