☁ Cloud Projects Studio: Official Discussion Topic
☁ Cloud Projects
Welcome! This is the cloud projects official discussion topic. Cloud Projects is a studio that showcases projects that use cloud variables in complex or creative ways.
Along with the discussion topic dedicated to the studio, we also have a dedicated project here
a cloud variable is a variable that stays the same for all scratchers. If one person sets it, everybody else will see the same number. It can be used for multiplayer, saving data, and connecting users in creative ways. Go to the tutorials section to find resources to help learn about cloud data and make cloud projects. To make one, go to the “data” section of your blocks and press “create a variable”. Select the option “Cloud variable”. Sadly, if you are a new scratcher, meaning you haven't received the message inviting you to become a scratcher, you can not make cloud variables or use cloud projects. The scratch team does have reasons for this.
Want a project added? The project must be centered around cloud data, and should use it in a complex or creative way. Not something simple like a highscore, or a few
set [☁variable v] to [number]blocks. If it isn't clear, explain how the project uses cloud data. Post your request in the studio. if it isn't checked for a few days, please wait and don't post again. We will view it eventually.
Cloud Projects is a very popular studio. That means there are a lot of comments to look through. So, spam and unrelated comments are very annoying. That's also why we want you to be very detailed with your requests. Also, no advertising please- do that here.
These tutorials should help you to make cloud projects or to learn about them! If they don't, try to ask one of these users.
