hi everyone, im new to construct but have a bit of experience in game design. Id love to use this engine but not sure how to get the results i need.
I wish to make an event that allows me to drag out a conveyor belt using the left button on the mouse, so i want to drag out lines from the point i hold down the mouse, and stop when i let go. as i said im, new to this, i just need a bit of advaice on how to achieve this.
many thanks <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
ok got the conveyor belt working now, just need a way to be able to drag out copies of it
Add a event like this:

hey thanks <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
that kind of works, however5 the belt object comes out as a whole using the click position as a centre point. I want it to drag out the object so as soon as i click, the left side of the belt will show, and stretch out following the mouse cursor.
hope this makes sense
I think i need to see a capx. Im not sure I get what your asking for?
you want to dynamically edit properties of the belt at runtime?
yes, to put it simply i want to dynamicly change the scale of the belt at runtime
much like the image below
i want to be able to draw out the lines like so, but the lines then act as conveyor belts when drawn.
Oooooh I see. I'm not on a computer right now but I'll write a tutorial on this as soon as possible
that would be fantastic if you could. <img src="smileys/smiley17.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
if you could let me know when and where to find this tutorila, that would be great. thanks again <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
