Square trail block?

#1

So, Ι had an idea.

As we all know, trails are circular. This makes it difficult to make square pixels for trail art. But, what if there was really a simple solution to this?

Ι propose we have 2 different types of trail art blocks. One, will be the type we have now, except instead of saying “Draw a trail” it will say “Draw a circular trail”. Then, there will be a second block, that says “Draw a rectangular trail” and will function similarly to circular, except with a square trail. It will sort of look like drawing with a highlighter.

Ι think it would be a cool solution instead of complicated strings of code. It would make pixel art fun and easy for even beginners to Hopscotch coding.

What do y’all think?

This would be amazing, but I was thinking something like this: (Ignore the move forward block)

Yeah you could leave a trail with triangle ends!

The brush shape section is just like a set image block. You pick the shape you want! (I made it with Æ’s JSON Edit.)

yeah that’s cool!

it could make all sorts of things easier, like trails behind objects (like in geometry dash decreasing visibility) and add a new kind of cool trail art

Yeah this would be a relatively nice addition though triangles would be tough

What do you mean by ‘tough’? Do you mean it would be hard to code?

I reckon you might be able to change the angle of the brush shape, and then it would either be like this:
<=====] or like this [=====>
It might also be on a 45˚ angle, which is hard to represent with text.

yeah

i get what you mean

i was trying to represent like a bunch of overlapped triangles

yes that’d be amazing and it be much better to make color wheels

That’s what I was thinking. The current one is a whole bunch of circles, but with a different shape it would be a line of what shape you select! :smile:
