[quote="Zaaephod":2r9ve8b9]Wow, so much help! Thanks guys
I do have one more question. Is there somewhere that has some documentation on the picture editor? I know that it's probably not the best for creating anything beyond basic images, but I do have some questions about it nonetheless.
EDIT: I'm also looking for some information on how to detect things within a circle around an object, and how to find the nearest kind of 'whatever' object.
The picture editor within Construct is basically a slightly fancied-up version of Paint, so I don't think there's really any in-depth documentation for it. You're probably better off using Photoshop (if you can afford it) or Gimp (if you can't) just so that you have things like filters, layers, and all the other features that will help make your graphics look passable.
As for finding the nearest "whatever" it's a lot easier than you'd think. Just make a new condition, the base object is your "whatever" (and that can even be a family, if you're using them!), and give the coordinates you're searching from (likely the X and Y of the object you're searching near, such as your carrier in this example). And, as Oko indicated, you can use Distance to see just how far away that thing is, so if that's outside the radius you'd like to use you can just ignore it altogether.
P.S. Sorry if my solution to your original problem was a little lengthy; I wanted it to give a half-decent graphical representation of what was going on behind the scenes, hence all the text boxes and so forth. There are slightly better, if less intuitive ways to do it, and I tend to err on the side of verbosity when making things for other people's benefit. Too many years of writing C++, I think
