Why does this script not work?

when green flag clicked
reset timer
forever
if <((timer) mod (5)) = [0]> then
if <(pick random (0) to (1)) = [1]> then


show

else
hide
end
end
end
This should, every 5 seconds, hide/show at random. Why doesn't this work?

What is it exactly that you want to do that to? If you want something to appear and re-appear in another location, you have to change the location of it. You don't necessarily need the timer, though it doesn't affect anything. What you do is-
You can look in the Scratch tutorials and look for the hide and seek one. That has the same concept that you are trying to do.


when green flag clicked
go to x: (starting x position) y: (starting y position)
wait (5) secs
forever
go to x: (pick random (-240) to (240)) y: (pick random (-180) to (180))
wait (5) secs
end

It is better to do that @uniquename1 says below this.

I'd be suspicious of pick random 0-1 =1. Though if that works it'd make things easier. That part seems ok. Why not replace the if timer mod 5=0 with wait 5 seconds?

This is your best solution.
Put the cloning script into a custom block, with run without screen refresh enabled so that they are all created at the same time, and there is no offset. Also, make 64 clones and don't have the original sprite be part of the process.

Never assume the timer is returning a whole number unless you use round, floor or ceiling on it. timer mod 5 might never be 0 in your project.

Have to say, @KingOfAwesome58219 that I find your signature graphic particularly annoying!

Why not start your own topic, give more details and share what you have so far.
