just wanted to ask for an actual shape creation plugin, which can create random polygons for c2 to use as sprite objects.

thanks

Hmm... Why not just make each individual shape manually, then import them as an animation?

The problem with using frames is you are limited to that frame for that shape, and it will not scale well.

A polygon object adds very little to the download, can be scaled, and can be made into any shape(within reason).

+1 for this, even if it doesn't get collisions, a simple box would be nice however.

+1 more for something like the box object in CC. Can't do selection boxes with sprites....

thought about kind of draw tool for triangles, squares, and polygons with all sprite funcionality like physics, so that i do not have to load a static picture or animation for this.

did not test the canvas plugin yet, but it loads shapes during events. so i guess they can not have additional behaviours. Am i right?

Any solutions appreciated

Hello people,

I wanted to refresh the status of that asking... Actually I'd love to have such a shape designer Plug-In too... and even I was on the way to investigate on how to make it myself.

Someone already working on that??

:) Thanks for that tip. Actually I should notice that the asking was about a polygon Plug-In, and not about a shape Plug-In.

According to Yann, there is much difference in-between, which is strongly correct. I have to play a little with his Polygon Plug-In to see if I could make custom rounded corners of a polygon without Bezier curves...
