Architects have to keep the function and location of the building they are creating in mind as they design.

In this add-on, you will give the user the chance to view their building on different backdrops.

First, add a sprite that will act as a button to trigger changing backdrops.

Next, drag out a switch backdrop to block.

Right now, this block switches to a specific backdrop.

Click the dropdown menu and choose next backdrop.

Click on the block to test this code.

The backdrop changes from the city to the next backdrop, which is the hay fields.

Consider the event that will cause the backdrop to change.

Connect the switch backdrop to block to this block.

Now it's your turn.

See your creation against different backdrops using an event and a switch backdrop to block.
