In this add on you'll 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 save lock 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 lock under the save lock.

Try it out.

Hmm, 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 and that's the clone.

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

Add a go to block and type in different numbers in the X and Y values.

Cool.

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 10 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 your sprite, then program the clones to appear in random positions on the screen.
