super simple python example with 3d rotation along the y axis
to be honest this code could be cleaned up, and made much more flexible, so it doesn't depend on the 2 sprites for radius, or you could choose any two sprites, I just made it that way to be easy to note the flexibility, and so it wouldn't require any coding knowledge to get a basic grasp
drag and drop the two small circles to adjust the radius and move your mouse around to rotate the larger sprite around the y axis of the smaller one
also, if you change the line:
Run python script - "yrot(Sprite)"
you'll notice that this function can be applied to any object like a behavior. This is a stripped down example, but in reality you could construct a python object that uses an array of construct sprites, and you treat it all like a single 3d rotatable object.
not to take away from quazi's uber impressive 3d stuff, and it is impressive, but with python you could design an object that could reduce a huge cap only readable by aliens(that's a compliment quaz), to a normal readable cap, with nothing but easy construct events, and simple python commands that you name yourself. if you didn't need a big object composed of many, you could create a better version of the function in this cap custom tailored to your needs, and you wouldn't need a bunch of private variables to manipulate 3d rotation
and after adding all the sprites to an array (a process which could also be simplified by python), you could just use commands like
MyUber3dConstruction being composed of 100 objects
35 being the number of degrees
Aside from that, these python objects and functions could be shared with others on the forum who would merely have to copy paste them to a script in start of layout
I recommend anybody who's capable of creating those WOW!! type event sequences in their caps, and eager to share their abilities, try to learn a little python. It really isn't that different from construct events. you just type stuff instead of choosing it from a list. learn a few rules about when to indent, and when to put a '(' or a ')', and you can share your genius/madness with the world, or at least make your madness clutter up your own caps less, and make them readable when you come back to the cap after a few months
3d is just one example, you could use this technique for anything from inventory systems, to custom sprite particle systems, anything complex that starts making your cap difficult to read or manage. It's neater than functions, and can everything 's' can do as far as data structure creation, but with greater readability, and less pointing, clicking, and definitely less typing in of long addresses. Not to denounce my own plugin, because it does have it's uses, but learning how to create data structures in python is much more useful in the long run than learning how to do it with 's'
