In the excellent jungle platform tutorial, we are taught to attach an invisible placeholder box to the player skin. As part of that tutorial, we learn how to use the "on every tick" event to attach the skin to the placeholder box.
In other tutorials and examples, people use the pin behavior to attach a sprite skin to a placeholder box. This also seems to work just fine.
Is one of these approaches recommended over the other approach? In a way, the pin behavior seems slightly more elegant because you just need to do it once rather than having the command executed in your event sheet on every tick. But I guess the pin behavior is probably doing the same thing underneath the hood?
Thanks for any advice!
