[Suggestion]Ability to set the Angle of the Line of Sight

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

it an annoying workaround of changing the Player sprite angle to facilitate the line of sight
are there any reason as to why this hasn't been implemented into Construct 2 kind of surprised i have not come across anyone discussing this on the forum

you dont have to do that..

there is always a simpler way,
use helper sprites

most game devs use helper sprites to show what the player is looking at during run time

you can set the opacity of a helper FOV cone to zero

heres a capx to illustrate what I mean...you can change it to suit your needs

there are hundreds of applications of this idea ..
hope it helps somehow
When in doubt..or you are lost in a Zombie apocalypse or someone is giving you a hard time..Remember one thing..... Read the Construct 2 Manual..it will save your life.:)
