In this add-on, you will multiply the number of supporters in your video using the clone tool.

To start, pick the sprite you will clone.

You can add a new sprite to your project, or use a sprite that is already in your project.

If you add a new sprite, add a "when this sprite clicked" event.

Add a "say" block, and type in words about how your issue affects many people.

This example says, "Sports are valuable to a lot of kids so they can stay active!"

To create a clone, select the control menu, and drag out a "create clone" block under the "say" block.

Try it out.

Hm, it doesn't look like a clone is created But, when you click and move the sprite, you’ll see another, identical sprite beneath it.

That’s the clone.

To make the sprite start in a different spot, add a "when I start as clone" block.

Add a "go to" block, and type in different numbers in the x and y values.


When this sprite is clicked, another sprite appears.

But, two sprites isn't very many.

To add more clones, add a “repeat” block around the "create clone."

When the sprite is clicked, ten sprites will be created, but they will all go to the same spot.

To make each clone go to a random spot, add a "pick random" block to the x and y values in the "go to" block.

Adjust the values in the "pick random" blocks until you get an effect you like.

Test this out!

In this example, When you click on the sprite, it says “"Sports are valuable to a lot of kids so they can stay active!”

Then, 10 supporters pop up on the screen!

Now it's your turn Create many clones of the sprite, then program the clones to appear in a random positions on the screen.
