I know, it sounds confusing... But let me explain further.
I want a sprite to draw the amount of sun I have.
but one sprite displays the sun count of this plant.
They are both sharing the same pen trails, so both sprites will cause graphical glitches the more I update this project and add more sprites drawn on the same drawing board.
I want them to have separate pens so that there won't be any interference.
why are you talking about js, js for n00bz. you should instead write Snap! programs in raw machine code. and don’t even write it in a hex editor, real programmers use the flap of a butterfly’s wings. the disturbance focuses cosmic rays onto the drive, flipping the desired bit.
cuz i didnt learn control structures originating from jump instead of while loops or data structures originating from raw bytecode instead of data aggregates
wait was that really a too short dont read?whoa
ps:im better off with my parity language than actual machine code bc smaller instruction set and no that much memory storage devices like registers but actuall computers all use registers and input output stuff complicated
uh then i mean with only one script and sprite
cuz u dont have those in js and i still dont get how to convineintly communicate between sprites(instead of doing tell or ask you could just goto and stamp)
(the "switch to costume" block i added is a debugging algorithm I use to see if it's working)
Perhaps I misinterpreted that long message of yours. I'd feel more guilty except other people did too. I guess you have to try harder to just say what you mean.
Instead of all that, maybe ask a question. Not a "what's Snap! all about" level question, but a "could you give a practical example in which hyperblocks help" kind of question. Or, even better, "I tried making this project but I can't get such-and-such to work."
So, ice cream. Large or small. Vanilla, Chocolate, Eggnog, or Pumpkin. Cone or cup. We want the menu listing, which is
combinations [small large] [vanilla chocolate eggnog pumpkin] [cone cup]
which reports the list
[[small vanilla cone]
[small vanilla cup]
[small chocolate cone]
[large pumpkin cup]]
Or you want a deck of cards:
combinations [ace 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 jack queen king] [of]
[hearts spades diamonds clubs]
