I am trying to create a game where the user can measure things on screen using a 'growing ruler' or tape measure.
The user would click and drag and as they dragged across the screen a ruler will appear allowing them to measure different objects on screen.
I really have no idea where to start! I've had a look at the canvas plugin but am none the wiser...
Despite this, I have tried to make an attempt in the hope of illustrating what i am trying to achieve more clearly:
If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be great!
I couldn't navigate the ads to get to your download.
If you add a tiled background you can use that as the tape.
the width is the length
and the height is how thick the tape is.
you'd then position the tape with:
on left click
--- tape: set postition to mouse.x, mouse.y
left mouse button is down
--- tape: set width to distance(tape.x, tape.y, mouse.x, mouse.y)
--- tape: set angle to mouse.x, mouse.y
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Thank you R0J0hound your suggestion did the trick!
I will avoid using that file sharing site in future
