"Repeat for ___ secs" blocks

I think there should be repeat blocks that don't repeat a given number of times, but for a given number of seconds.

How it works is, there's a repeat block like this:

repeat (for ___ seconds?)

end

Then you enter how many seconds you want it to repeat.

Please give feedback

It can be worked around:
repeat until <(timer) = [?]>

move () steps
end
Or you can use a variable, if you have another spite that uses the timer.

Adding on to @jh1234I's answer, you would want to reset the timer before using the repeat until block.

reset timer
repeat until <(timer) = [?]>
do stuff
end

It's because the timer automatically starts on the launch of the program, and there is no way to stop it.

No support.
If I have a script like
repeat for 10 seconds,
with a wait 11 seconds in it, what happens?

If I have a script like wait 10 seconds
with blocks inside of it,
what happens when the 10 seconds are up and it's in the middle of the scripts?
Will the rest of the scripts inside continue even though the 10 secs are up? Or will they stop and skip ahead of the repeat?

No support, except the workaround should probably look something like this instead-
reset timer
repeat until <<(timer) > []> or <(timer) = []>
...
end

Is that sticky actually a “do not suggest” list now?

Still no support because the workaround is easy.

Well, kind of, but it's really just a list of commonly suggested block workarounds.

Anyway, no support, because of the simple workaround I listed in that link up there.














when [chromometer altimeter v] = [5th length v] and [7th length v] with a [gap v] of (17) ::events hat
forge [chromometer v] altimeter until < (speed) = (velocity)> ::control cstart
switch places with (759 v) altimeters with value of (speed) ::looks
control [altimeter 1 v] at time (10):(17):(58) ::control
end
initialize sequence (24) so [object 3 v] moves to x (156) y (231) ::control
reveal [final answer v] and stop running this script ::events cap

I think that it can be made by -
define repeat (How much) for (time) secs
repeat (How much)
...::grey//Put anything here.
end
wait (time::custom-arg) secs
stop [this script v]

Another workaround:
when green flag clicked
repeat (x)
script
wait (1) secs
end
x is how many seconds you want it to wait, reflecting off of the “wait for 1 secs” at the end of the script.
