still causes crash.

Quote: "ClearTweenSprite. Clears all tweens for the sprite."
should read "ClearTweenSprite. Clears all tweens for the sprite tween" where it's implied that a sprite ID should be the parameter, otherwise.

meanwhile, modified raven's code on discord for grayscale:



can we get some examples on usage of all the Noise commands?

more discussion on Noise, et al @ discord...

finally, can we get the studio stuff in the ONLINE help so we can review stuff from anywhere we have a browser?

elaborated on mike's code to produce some kind of noise explorer:

use the mousewheel while hovering over a parameter to increase/decrease value, or click anywhere to randomize.

still learning helpful ranges for each, proper increments, and how they might work/(together). the repo for OpenSimplex doesn't give much insight, nor do other repos working with it that i've reviewed.

i've set the INC values to what i THINK make sense for each; let us know if you find lay-person sense of it all?

BTW, the FRACTAL stuff sounds delicious. any usage guidance, there? new toys are frustrating if you don't know how to play with them

meanwhile, haliop7, must you create a new account every time you check in? please contact TGC to recover, instead.

This is an example of how I have used tweens for the undo feature and auto compete on my card game. Tweens are very useful and easy to use. The new ClearTween commands make things even simpler.

from Source re: Noise parameters:
  • Frequency ("width") of the first octave of noise (default to 1.0)
  • Amplitude ("height") of the first octave of noise (default to 1.0)
  • Lacunarity specifies the frequency multiplier between successive octaves (default to 2.0).
  • Persistence is the loss of amplitude between successive octaves (usually 1/lacunarity)


quick explanation re: Heightmap generation:
