Rules: 1. You cannot use the stamp block or any other blocks using pen other than pen down and clear.
2. You cannot change the sprite size or pen size it has to stay default. This includes changing costumes.
4. Share you're project/optimal ideas in this forum page only
5. It has to fill the viewable screen completely.
6. Clones are not allowed
Example here Snap! Build Your Own Blocks
cybersteve547's Code is currently the most optimal for a 100% fill that fits within the rules (its instant!) Snap! Build Your Own Blocks
starbox614's code is the most optimal and compact way of filling the screen!
More in depth to the rules of the sprite having to do the work itself: The sprite has to do the filling and the stage cannot be abused. You HAVE to use the pen down block making the fastest printer possible not recoloring the stage. (Why I didn't put the rules so in depth is because I didn't think that they would be loopholed)
Not a 100% fill, but in a pinch, close enough.
simple sweeping up and down approach:
EDIT: optimized a bit
if i had access to all of the blocks I would only need
Bzzt! That violates the second rule...
I don't see anything in the rules to rule out cloning.
clone resize a pen?
Step 1: import the “PENcil a” costume (close enough, isn’t it?)
… and the full screen is left yellow.
EDIT: oh, you cant change the sprite size
This is still technically a clone according to snaps engine
I made this
This technically abides to the rules. You didn’t say anything about drawing it only with pen
It doesn’t even need pen actually you can just provide the rgba values you want
the title does say "fill the stage WITH PEN" though...
in my opinion that means the block should report the filled costume
This does also technically use pen so it is filling it with pen, just not pen trails
Changing the color doesn’t “use” the pen either
Coder_07 is right only one sprite is allowed and clones are a violation of the one sprite rule.
okay then just remove the clone block
clones arent sepearate sprites too
oh i see now you edited the rules to exclude cloning, very clever
but have you considered this?
and before you say no other sprites
one sprite, no more, no less.
yeah that is only one sprite, the stage isnt a sprite
