# additional x and y velocity for platform behavior

New releases and general discussions.

set time scale takes care of all that for you. You were talking about making things run normal when you slow down the time scale.

Hummm a per-sprite timescale would also be really nice

set timescale(0.5)
sprite set timescale (0.5)

total timescale for sprite would be 0.25

seems simple to code... hmmm request

No, Aeal5566,

Timescale effects the entire game and every thing in it does it not? I want to effect time on a per-sprite basis. I wish and had originally requested for a PER sprite timescale. I want some sprites to run in slow motion, and some at normal speed and maybe some at zero speed, including animation speed, inertia, jumping, falling etc...per sprite.

Madster understands what I want. This is what I requested when I suggested timescale in the first place.:

It's perfectly plausible to custom code independent timescales for objects - even jumping - you just have to adjust the gravity accordingly as well. Gravity is a uniform acceleration applied to all objects, and acceleration is dependent on the timescale. If you're read the article on timedelta, you'll know that adjusting a speed by an acceleration involves speed + acceleration * timedelta.

The main reason timescale is global is that it was easy to code Per-object timescales is possible, but would have to wait until Construct 2.

Thanks Ashley. Construct 1 is shaping up to be an awesome authoring system and at this rate version 2 will be earth-shaking! I hope per-sprite time scaling makes it in 2.

In the mean-time, any chance of the original request of this thread? Additional x velocity and additional Y velocity for making things like conveyor belts and wind super easy?

thanks

I find myself in need of the additional X/Y velocity lately too.

Would be really really great if this feature could be added soon.
