Drawline and Gradient Suggestions

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • Hi, I thought a good suggestion/feature to implement later would be something similar to the drawline extension that mmf had. But I think if possible it would be even cooler if you could set properties to the line to be drawn as well such as opacity, colour and thickness. If you could take it one step further and have like a draw poly function where you assign each corner of the poly to a point of you choice etc and still set colour and opacity, you could actually get away with faking 3d stuff pretty easily, but right now I'm happy with just a drawline function.

    Also another suggestion about the current gradient tool, would it be possible to add different gradient shapes? Radial gradients would be great although I'm aware i could just use photoshop but it would be quicker with construct with it built in and all

    Anyway that's all bye

  • the one feature I always wished drawline had was the ability to draw an invisible line, so we could create vector normals for collisions in a hand-drawn map or something <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cool.gif" alt="8)" title="Cool" />

  • you can fake a drawline by making a box which always sets angle to the angle between (x1,y1) and (x2,y2), width to the distance between (x1,y1) and (x2,y2), height to the thickness you want and position to (x1,y1), it actually works pretty well. One thing to note is you have to set the original box's height and width both to 1 or it has a strange offset.

  • This would make a fairly decent plugin, I'll add it to the todo list.
