The newly added feature on Hopscotch
Images has caused many different projects to happen and has a sparked a new generation of coding in Hopscotch
So I want to discuss the negatives and positives of images being added. Believe it or not every feature has its negatives as the developers sometimes can't please everyone.
Images have some negatives too. I'm mostly talking about the creativity of some people before images try to make their OWN image like creations. For example emojis, people has used to emojis to bypass images as they didn't have images at the time. If you bought the subscription to images emojis and reasonably useless. This ruins the whole "emoji community" as a whole. Emojis can barely live on now as some people can't use the subscription, but it's mostly dead. Next negative output is the now useless characters hopscotch made for us. These default characters are now really useless because we can add our own character we either drew or picked up. Their is no point in having these characters anymore and just ruins them in general. This one is a really bad thing that happened. SHAPE ART! Images now just decrease the use of shape art for the detail. Shape art and Kawaii art (that's made of shapes) are now going to decrease! Most people are going to use images not shape art for their projects. They will probobly only use shape art if that's the whole project in whole. So Rip shape art. Logos.. Not Legos but Logos. Take @CreativeCoder's old Undertale logo. That thing has like 400 shapes and their all used perfectly. Now with images these logos are going to be dunked in the trash. Most people won't even try to make a 400 shape logo thing that takes like 6 hours. This ruins the whole "logo making" community. People might only do it if they want to make hard earned logos not just use an image. But a solution to this is to draw your own logos but still making logos on hopscotch is not that hard anymore and people specialized into it. Not everyone could make a logo. That's all I can think of things images could do that's negative. Fell free to discuss/debate against my opinion. Yes this is my opinion :D
Their are a ton more positives than negatives here so be ready! Images add the thing a lot of people had problems with. Custom characters! Now of you try to add Sans from undertake it will look exactly like it! Also we can now make better quality games! Images help make it exactly same looking which equals better quality looks and code. Your asking why better quality code? Well let's say you have a guy with a sword. You can make him use a sword slash image for better coding! These can turn to make easy RPG games that look really great and can play! Now let's on to ANIMATING! With images you can use the frames to make animations! You can draw the frames on a different app and use it on Hopscotch! If your a great drawer and you feel drawing got ripped apart by images, you can animate! Animation takes a lot of patience so put some hours aside of your day to try it. Images also take a whole new level of avatars and logos. I recommend a website called Textcraft.net which customizes your text to any kind of font you want. You can use this website to make your own project titles than the boring normal text. Another major thing that images adds are sprites! Sprites are the old kinda style of characters with pixels and are mostly portrayed before images as pixel art. Before they were almost impossible to move as they were little tiny dots of leave of trail. The leave of trail block's trail was not a object therefore can't be moved. Now with images you can grab or make a sprite using Hopscotch or a another app to make them animate or in games. An example is Mario. You can make get a background level then use Mario and everything else as sprites. Now we don't have to use cheeky text art for our sprites. Undertale and Mario are great examples for uses of images. So be sure to try to make those of you have no ideas. Also waiting on a full animation which will be really cool.
I hope this topic doesn't die out or anything because I spent a lot of time on this. Well hope to see you again :D!
-Still trying to convince my parents to get subscription :P gotta wait a little more time. -Razor
