Wouldn't this be a nice block to have?

Wouldn't this be a nice block to have:


I think so.
(I used art studio to make this)


#2

Golly gee, yes it would!!! It would be awesome if you could make something point towards something else :smile::smile::smile:

P.S. Grrr I can't like (wow, I'm acting like a real bear! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:)


#3

OK, but how does the code know which way your thing is facing? Your thing could point away from wherever instead of toward it.


#4

Maybe you can use the "Point Towards" block to make a character facing another character, and that would be helpful :grinning:


#5

It would just set the direction to where it's pointing at wherever you put in.


#6

Yes this seems like it would be useful, and easy block (we will have to stick with the turn block for now)


#7

Cool! Can you use a natural music sign block in art studio too?


#8

I know how to make a point towards system, and made a topic about it


#9

You're use a flip block first

Hi @Valgo! I have tried to make so many games before realising that I need a block exactly like that. It would be perfect! Like making Clash of Clans or a battle game where the opponent's weapons move towards the opposition. It would really make code in Hopscotch easier. I think thta it would have been easier to create @MagmaPOP's Helicopter Rescue game if we had this block (by the way I thought that game was amazing!). Great idea @Valgo! :yum: :cat:


#11

This would be great.
As there is a technique https://c.gethopscotch.com/p/xckbvefjc but this method may make things go way faster and maybe reduce lag?


#12

if you turn and move forward then you can do that, but this block would totally be better, it might have glitches though.


#13

yes but it is hard to gt just the right direction :wink: It would be very useful in making enemy AI!


#14

There is a way to do that, but it uses trig and sine and cosine and all that stuff.


#15

Just found this topic and yes we need this for club penguins and battle games and much much more!


#16

Good idea!
Although there is already a similar block, "Set Angle", I think this would be a bit easier!


#17

A revived topic....

Might be helpful in the future tho...


#19

I would LOVE THIS IDEA


#20

Golly gee? Just where did you say you're from again?


#21

I'm from 'Merica! And I don't know why I said "golly gee" :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

:wink:
