Make a for-this-sprite-only variable in the parent sprite, and all the children will inherit it. (Actually if you make the variable in the parent before making the clones, it will be copied rather than inherited, which is what you want. If you make the variable after making the clones, there will just be one copy shared among all of them, but if you assign a new value to that variable in the clone, it gets its own copy split off from the parent, so that works for you too.)
@snapenilk@ego-lay_atman-bay Okay, sorry, I was feeling exasperated probably for reasons unrelated to the forum. (Such as the fact that in Alameda County they're still just doing age 75+ even though California is allowing 65+.) (Among other issues...)
It's the vaccination plans that you are talking about, aren't you?
I can empathize with you.
I can hardly wait to get it myself after my wife (who works in a hospital) has been vaccinated with the second dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, already, with a slight fatigue as the only side-effect.
But I will probably have to wait until summer because I am not a priority.
