This add-on challenges you to add
to your project with very little direction on how to do it.
Watch this video for a few hints, then use your persistence
and curiosity to figure out the rest.
In the looks menu, there is a block that lets you change
the size of a sprite called change size by.
Entering a positive number in this block
makes the sprite bigger.
While a negative number will make it smaller.
There is also a block called set size to, that sets the size
of a block to a percentage of it's original size.
To make the sprite it's original size,
enter 100% in the set size to block.
Now, connect the change size by block
to some event or conditional that the user can do
to make the size change occur.
If you'd like one idea for how to do this,
watch the rotating add-on video
and replace the turn block with a change size by block.
Or use event blocks.
A great aspect of computer science
is there's lots of different ways
to create and solve problems.
There's no right or wrong solution.
Instead, what matters most is the results.
Explore until you build something that works.
Once you've finished this add-on, update the instructions
on your project page so people know which keys to press
to change the size.
Now it's your turn.
Use events or conditionals and the change size by
and or the set size to blocks
to make the sprites get bigger and smaller.
Create a game in which users create a building using falling blocks.
Make the shapes turn and rotate!
Make the landscape turn into rainbow colors.
Make the sprites change size!
Change the backdrop to other scenes.
