[Suggestion] Colour coded Families...

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri May 10, 2013 8:59 pm

It would be ideal to be able to set a custom icon for Families...

But, until then and with the recent colour, syntax highlighting, I thought families could do with the same treatment...

At the moment events using Families all look the same, A screen full of "Teal invaders" can be confusing...

The top half of the pic is how it looks now, below is colour coded, and easy to reference them on the right...



I often have to double click a Family, in the event sheet, to know which Family it is...
As long as I can move left, right and fire, I'm Happy...

Well, wouldn't be bad at all, but the family name is already a good solution.

Why you don't stretch your lines to show the families names?

Well, Your right, but same applies to the syntax, I guess...

Text colour might be good idea. I'm not sure.

For some reason, I find this coloring very confusing.

Maybe more subtle colours, would have toned My mock up down a bit...

And obviously this would be user optional...

Maybe just add an option to edit the icon? CC has that (even though it was broken there...)

I agree with 7Soul
Kinda like how Windows has a little arrow for icons that are shortcuts, we could have an editable icon that has a little icon at the lower right corner resembling families. :P
