Given that construct 2 boasts itself as being a non programing game maker with an easy to use visual interface, I figured it is missing a feature. Family groups should be able to have an icon applied to the group for use in construct. If you build a game larger than asteroids, families become super important. Needless to say most of the events in the project end up working with families rather than specific objects.
When every object you work with has the same icon and a necessary descriptive long name, the advantages of a visual editor disappear. Worse yet, it becomes harder to read than lines of code as long names are often cut short due to lack of screen space.
see below example:
Most events are absolutely unclear what object they are referring to without investigating closely.
I want to be able to load a sprite so that every family has a unique look - this wouldn't effect game size and everything needed to do this exists I think. Any chance of this happening Ashley ?
* EDIT * - Also, you can't make subfolders for families and group by folder as you can objects. With 20 families, this is annoying. With 100, it is a real work flow killer.
