New Block Suggetion

Well, Here we go again with a block suggestion.
If this doesn't follow the Sticky rules, Sorry!

This is something I would find handy with games like Breakout.
if touching [ v] then bounce

This is something I have been waiting for some time.
Its just something I would like Scratch to have.

Its just for purposes of a Breakout type game or something else.

New Block Suggetion

pretty sure theres a workaround

Number 999 Truck11111: the first time you see this copy and paste it on top of your sig in the scratch forums and decrease the number by 1, and add your username to the end of the number, but only if there wasn't a username already there! Comment on the user who you found this from's profile saying that you continued the experiment. Social experiment started by dude341, based on “generation social experiment” trend.

No support. “Bounce” is a vague term. I get what you're after here, but a number of people may confuse the meaning of “bounce.” It's ambiguous, anyway, what exactly would it do? What if you wanted to change what it did, like the amount of degrees it turned?

One of the scratch team's own projects provides some good starter code for bouncing off the paddle. When touching paddle, rotate a random amount between 160-200 degrees. Likewise, you could fiddle with the code a bit and have that apply to blocks as well. Just remember the Help With Scripts forum is there when you need it

I was kind of expecting people to be saying that its a weird block, But it will just work like this block:
if on edge, bounce

But just the edge is a sprite.
I hope this is understandable.

Ah yeah, true, for some reason that didn't come to mind (despite being in the project.) My bad.

I'll change it to semi-support since as long as that's a block then i don't see a reason why this shouldn't be a thing. But generally i'm not a fan of “black box” commands. Since, like i said previously, it's not customizable. You don't know what it's doing, you're putting your faith in Scratch's hands. There isn't a configuration option, you can't adjust it, you don't really know what it's doing. Then again - Scratch is aimed at beginners and black box commands are generally accommodating.

I think that is the earliest one, this has been suggested many times, so I'm not sure.
