  • Good day,

    I'm looking for someone to build a plugin for me.

    Need someone to build a plugin to load a sprite sheet from URL.

    Is it possible to do something like this?

    I had a look at the documentation for the SDK addon but the documentation is a bit confusing.

  • What workflow gain is there from loading an image via URL, as opposed to loading the file from your pc?

  • Hi Straskal,

    Thank you for your response.

    The workflow is quite simple:

    Say you have a game that needs to be themed according to public holidays or special occasions. The game mechanics do not change, it is the same game, BUT when you for an example have explosions that are ordinarily fire and smoke today, tomorrow it could be hearts and rainbows, or for halloween it could be pumpkins and witches.

    The whole approach here is to theme my animations, explosions, particles ... whatever it is.

    This is such a simple thing to do, but it has become a really difficult and time consuming excercise.

    The basics: setup a sprite with (n) animations. Load the spritesheet from url to support theming, and continue on our mary way...

    Hope to hear from the community.

  • Ah okay. If I'm understanding correctly, what you want is to load and build sprite animations at runtime.

    The addon SDK only appears to support building animations at edit time.

  • Hi Straskal,

    Yes that is correct.

    I am not sure where we go from here though, how do we up-vote requests or perhaps ask the addon developers to assist?

  • construct3.ideas.aha.io

    This is where you can suggest any idea for construct, including SDK additions.

  • Thank you.

    For the guidance, I made the suggestion hopefully they come back with a reply.
