Z-Order Place In Front of Another Object

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Jul 27, 2012 4:24 pm

In Classic, two of the many z-ordering features was "Place in front of another object" and "Place behind another object". This feature was extremely useful in games that featured visible upgrades to characters, like body armor or weapons, that could be pinned to a character, while not interfering with the appearances of other characters (for example, maintaining proper depth in top down games, the upgrades not appearing over characters who should be in front of the upgraded character).

Anyway, yeah, I miss that feature. They're the last two actions needed to have a fully featured z-sorting system. Pretty please?

While foreach ordered is nice, this proposal makes things a a lot easier, and it's cleaner too.

A "set z-order" action and a "get z-order" expression would solve everything.

It's been on our todo list for a while, hopefully we'll get round to it soon!

I have only so much love to give, but it seems Scirra has taken all of it.

You guys ever thought of having a public todo list like this?. It seems there is a post or two each day saying "it's on the list!". Might be handy to have a place to check before asking.

@boolean
Here is a post by Ashley about why he doesn't think having a publicly viewable todo list is a good idea:
http://www.scirra.com/forum/website-feature-request-please-bump-if-you-agree_topic56271_post351157.html#351157
Regardless I think it would be cool to see a todo list or roadmap of some sort.

An unofficial todo list could also be made by searching all Ashely's posts for "todo list" and making a list, but it could be a time consuming task.
