|Change Pen Color by ()|
The Change Pen Color by () block was a Pen block and a stack block. The block changed the pen's color by the specified value. There are 200 possible colors looping in a rainbow. In Scratch 3.0, this block was replaced by Change Pen () by ().
In projects that use the pen, the pen must have a certain color — this block can change it.
Some common uses for the Change Pen Color by () block were:
- Iterating through pen color values while the sprite is moved to create colorful art
forever if <((timer) mod (1)) = > then change pen color by (1) end end
- Varying pen colors for an art program
forever change pen color by (loudness) wait (2) secs end
- In projects that "draw" objects with the pen, changing the color of the object(s)
repeat (360) move (1) steps turn cw (1) degrees change pen color by ((2) / (3.6)) end
This block could not be replicated with other Scratch blocks, due to the fact that there was no block that held the pen color.
However, if the block existed, the Change Pen Color by () block could be replaced with the following code:
set pen color to ((pen color) + (amount))
One could use the workaround, though it requires a "pen color" variable and the following script:
when gf clicked forever set pen color to (pen color) end
