But you can still do something like;
When {When gf clicked} clicked::events hat
[scratchblocks]
When {When gf clicked} clicked::events hat
[/scratchblocks]
To make them go inside other blocks.

I used to be active on the forums, but I have mostly moved past Scratch. I still do check my Scratch messages, so if you'd like to talk to me, just leave a comment on my profile. My main project on Scratch was Cookie Clicker, but my newest project is Snake Snake, a game based off of Snake, but with two snakes, and you can play either singleplayer or multiplayer.

Hey!

The scratchblocks plugin has been updated since this topic was started, so I'll give you a few updates:

First, cstart, celse and cend seem not to have any effect anymore. Take a look:
[scratchblocks]
test cstart :: cstart
...
test celse :: celse
...
test cend :: cend
[/scratchblocks]
makes
test cstart :: cstart
...
test celse :: celse
...
test cend :: cend
.
The only way to make your own C blocks now is to use curly braces {}, like this:
[scratchblocks]
test cstart {
...
} test celse {
...
} test cend
[/scratchblocks]
test cstart {
...
} test celse {
...
} test cend
which (to me, since I've worked with JavaScript) makes a lot more sense.

Second, directly because of this, curly braces {} don't work as block inputs anymore, see:
[scratchblocks]
here is a block with what used to be a block input {block}
[/scratchblocks]
here is a block with what used to be a block input {block}
so instead. you can actually use parentheses () and inside them specify that the input is a block!
[scratchblocks]
here is a block with what is now a block input (block :: stack) :: control // 'cause I want to differentiate the colors
[/scratchblocks]
here is a block with what is now a block input (block :: stack) :: control // 'cause I want to differentiate the colors

Third, to control the type of a “if – else – finally” block, you just put the :: at the end, like this:
[scratchblocks]
test cstart {
...
} test celse {
...
} test cend :: control
[/scratchblocks]
test cstart {
...
} test celse {
...
} test cend :: control

Finally, here is a rewrite of @theonlygusti 's code, the way I think he meant it to be:
[scratchblocks]
when gf clicked :: operators hat
wait until (this block :: looks stack) turns purple {
say hi! :: sound stack
} and then {
use the colors {
to make life :: motion stack
} :: custom-arg
} finally :: extension
stop :: grey cap
[/scratchblocks]
when gf clicked :: operators hat
wait until (this block :: looks stack) turns purple {
say hi! :: sound stack
} and then {
use the colors {
to make life :: motion stack
} :: custom-arg
} finally :: extension
stop :: grey cap
@theonlygusti , I respect you for being the only one I've found that actually deliberately explained all the scratchblocks techniques. Here is an update for everyone who reads this topic!
Another thing: you can now set blocks to other colors. For example, to make a block black or white:
[scratchblocks]
::#000000
::#ffffff
[/scratchblocks]
::#000000
::#ffffff
Just use the hexadecimal code instead of a category.

Yeah, it doesn't seem to even be on the Wiki page yet, so it must be pretty new.

It was introduced in the new version of scratchblocks3. I didn't notice that it wasn't on there, hopefully it will be added (I'll edit it tomorrow if nobody does so before me)

Hello again, people!
Thanks to the posts after mine for a few things I had forgotten about.

To make them go inside other blocks.
@duckboycool, this is because you specified that the block has to be a hat block. Without the “hat” in “events hat”, the block would become a C block. If you put what was originally a block input into a block then the block you put it into will become a C block unless you specify its type.
[scratchblocks]
When {When gf clicked} clicked::events hat
[/scratchblocks]
makes
When {When gf clicked} clicked::events hat
while
[scratchblocks]
When {When gf clicked} clicked::events
[/scratchblocks]
makes
When {When gf clicked} clicked::events

Thanks, @monstermash3, for reminding me about this. Yes, you can set blocks to specific RGB hex colors. Enjoy.

That's all!

What I think asivi meant was the contents of the OP be added to the other topic.

The OP still does not seem to mention color pickers.

I think all aspects of the new [scratchblocks] plugin have been covered in the OP. Thus, bumping for update!

I'm having problems with scratchblocks.
Sprite1: define one thing//local custom block
Sprite1: define one thing ::custom ::hat
Sprite1: define one thing ::hat ::custom
Sprite1: define one thing ::hat ::custom//local custom block
define something else//global custom block
Sprite1: define one thing//Sorry, but [scratchblocks] is not cooperating.
[/scratchblocks]
What's your advice for this?

Please read my signature! It might explain some lingo that I used in my post or comment. However, not all of it shows, so you have to highlight the entire bottom of the post, from “Please read my signature!” to where it says report, and copy and paste in into a new sheet or tab or whatever.
I can't decide my signature between:
1. I'm a grammar stickler, and my pet peeve is when people use good as an adverb.
2. I have lots of [creativity]original ideas[/creativity]. [creativity]This[/creativity] is one of those ideas.
3. If I used this symbol: ⸮ in my comment, please look it up before doing anything else.
4. {Minot, North Dakota/Donald Trump parodies} “WE'RE GONNA BUILD A DAM AND MAKE CANADA PAY FOR IT!” “When Canada sends its water, they’re not sending their best drinking water…They’re bringing sleet. They’re bringing floods. The water's toxic.” (It's just a joke that I came up with.)
5. One should make his/her signature text small; that way (s)he can cram more text into the signature.
6. New [scratchblocks] idea each week! (Thanks to Bright-Idea (Read her signature.) for inspiration/the general idea.) Here's the archive:

It's because you're using the :: notation twice. Just type :: one time:

Sprite1: define one thing ::custom hat
