Actually, put it that way and it does sound pretty useful.
However, is there any chance something like this could actually be implemented?

I doubt a feature Like this could be implemented for construct 1 but maybe 2.0 it could be implemented.

Well I still personally dont like visual editors like this because I think you spend too much time organising your diagram and they can easily get confusing to read.

One idea me and Ashley have been discussing is a 'wait until'...for example:



This could be represented in events as:


(mockup only)

But yeah I'm not sure whats clearer, the events or the flowchart...I personally think it's easier to read the events. Its like 'ah okay so you press the trigger, the door opens, then you wait 5 seconds after its opened, and then it closes' whereas the flowchart its like where do you start reading from...

It's not a useless feature, but only not obligatory.
