|Turn () Degrees|
The Turn () Degrees blocks are Motion blocks and Stack blocks. The blocks turn their sprite the specified amount of degrees clockwise or counter-clockwise (depending on which block is used); this changes the direction the sprite is facing.
The blocks use the 360 degrees in a circle. The Default Value is 15 and can be replaced by any number (360+x displays the same as 0+x).
These blocks are the easiest way to rotate a sprite, unless many costumes are used to give the illusion of rotation or the workaround is used.
Some common uses for the Turn () Degrees blocks:
- Simple rotation — e.g. planets and wheels
forever turn cw (15) degrees
- Animation — e.g. a waving hand
repeat (5) turn cw (15) degrees end repeat (5) turn ccw (15) degrees end
- Vehicles that can turn
forever if <key [left arrow v] pressed?> then turn ccw (3) degrees end if <key [right arrow v] pressed?> then turn cw (3) degrees end

The blocks can be replicated with the following code:
point in direction ((direction) + (amount))
point in direction ((direction) - (amount))
