Thanks :wink: I can make a tutorial on how to use Sin/Cos in Hopscotch if you want.

I chose this list because I'm used to use the trail and width blocks a lot


#9

I actually disagree, a lot of peeps use sin/cos and the last two are actually my most two! :joy: xD
(no offense :wink:)


#10

No problem :smiley: feel free to disagree or agree or even put your own list of unused blocks

Mine would be:
1) Change Trail Color/Width/Clear- All of these are pretty much useless when not making a drawing pad
2) Turn- This may surprise some of you but I prefer to use the Set Angle block as it works faster than the turn block. If you have been taught angles in math, I would recommend using Set Angle instead of Turn as it makes the project look more clean and professional
3) Change Pose- I hardly ever use the Hopscotch Characters in projects and this one doesn't do anything aside from that :wink:


#13

I disagree with you on the first one but the rest I agree with turn and change pose.


#14

Mine are:

  1. Change Trail Color and Width: I can just get a new Leave a Trail block and add them there.
  2. Grow and Shrink by: Set Size is the same, and has a smaller chance of creating a blurry object than these.
  3. Clear or Change Pose: Clear's only a little useful, because you can use Leave a Trail to replace it if you're not feeling lazy, and I only use Change Pose for movies or something of the like.

#15

1) Clear- just use a white trail...
2) Change Pose- never used this, I actually don't like using characters.
3) Set Angle- I dunno, I prefer a Set Speed and a Turn. Force of habit.


#16

I use 2 and 1 often, I just use 1 with leave a trail when I'm too lazy to pull out Change X By. (Which is most of the time.)


#17

I guess I use sin and cos often. Ever since I've learned to use it. I use move forward occasionally and repeat also.


#18

I rarely use... Hmm.

Most of the blue blocks
Bring to front
Set Pos
Flip
Turn
Set Angle


#19

I don't really agree...I use those blocks ALOT theses Are some blocks I don't use:
•Flip
•Set angle
•The abilitys it comes with
I just realised my first PROJECT didn't have abilities!


#20

I disagree with all but the Sin/Cos. Ok I was just stating my opinion.

I never use:
Sin/Cos (I'm a 4th grader soooo)
Shrink and Grow By (It's too confusing and weird)
Clear, Change Trail Color and Width (Just use normal Leave A Trail's!!!"
Not Equal To (It's just.......can't you just use a check if else, which will do something if it's equal, and if it's not?)

That's about it.


#21

Lol. First of all Sin and Cos is most useful block in Hopscotch in my opinion :wink: Move forward isn't just a copy of change x and y. If you need to move your character a certain angle, it is very useful! Repeat is VERY useful for clones just because you don't want the clones to lagg everything.


#22

Just learn fromFunky! :wink:


#23

I think that powers and squares are used less commonly than sin and cos!


#24

Hmm.. Let me see
I don't understand sin and cos much, but, tbh, A LOT of Hopscotchers do, so I wouldn't really call it unused.
Repeat is one of my favorite blocks, personally. Repeat forever can get SUPER laggy, plus a lot of projects do need it to repeat a very certain number of times.
I gotta agree with you on move forward, I would rather use change x and y by. :slight_smile:
