This is a single chapter from the "Construct Starter Kit Collection". It is the Student Workbook for its Workshop.
  • i want an object in scene to reduce its scale every second. i used: every 1 second / set scale to "vida.height-5" but what i get as a result is a brief screenshot of the object at full scale (i think at the actual size of the object which is 400pixels x 400 pixels ) and then disappears, and repeats every 1 second until it completly stop after like 6 seconds. it's like it detects the virgin object and pastes it on screen.

  • scaling sprites seams to act relative not absolute.

    To scale a sprite smooth declare a object variable e.g. myscale (initial set to 1) and reduce this every second by e.g. 0.1

    Save the initial width/height of the/each sprite in an object variable at startup.

    The each second set the sprites width to sprite.initial width * myscale and the the sprites height to sprite.initial height * myscale

    something like this

  • Instead of scale I would recommend using the size of the object.

    You can reduce height and width using Size of object each second or every tick.

    Scale is primarily used when you are also scaling the layout so objects appear the correct scale.
