Touching Any Sprite Boolean

Basically, what my idea is is that there should be an “Touching any sprite” Boolean, because for some projects that involve just touching a sprite in general (Like a scanner that checks for sprites), it takes a long time to write “if touching Sprite2 or if touching Sprite3, etc.” I think it would look like this:

<touching [any sprite v] ?>
There should also be a reporter called
(sprites touching :: sensing)
I'm noticing a lot of people are asking the same thing-

That already exists:
<touching [sprite name v] ?>

I know that, my concept is a block that can detect if any sprite is touched. As I mentioned before, it's a hassle to write “if touching SpriteName” for projects that require detecting for many sprites.

Have you ever heard of the Duck Highway series? ‘Cause no. You haven’t. So check their studio, then get ready for the next one, Duck Highway 5: The Cars Strike Back. This time, it's personal. For the fifth time.

You don't write it just to let you know, there also already is a block.

If I said no support highlight this from “Hi” to “AWESOME”:
Hi this isThink about your suggestion, was it going to benefit a majority of scratchers, did it have cons to a specific group, was it fully based on YOUR opinion, did you put some thought into the idea, simply forgot to read the sticky, has little pros, no purposeful reason, was there something wrong with scratch? If any of these apply to you think about your post, either revise it or close it.AWESOME
If I said support highlight this from “Hi” to “COOL”:

Cool idea! Otherwise you'd… well
<<touching [ v] ?> or <<touching [ v] ?> or <<touching [ v] ?> or <<touching [ v] ?> or <<touching [ v] ?> or <<touching [ v] ?> or <<touching [ v] ?> or <<touching [ v] ?> or < > > > >> > >  > > 

The above post was likely clear sass. 10 outta 10.
Unless it wasn't. Which happens from time to time. Sadly.

I know what you mean, it would save time. Good idea! But there is a solution. Just make all your sprites so that they have a certain color (like green) on the edge and then have something like:
<touching color [#00FF00] ?>

Hope it helps until your idea or something like it comes out!

But then you are limited in what your sprites can look like.

Instead of that big loop thingy, you can put touching main sprite in all other sprites that you'd need the main sprite to touch. Still you'd have to put an if touching main sprite in the other 100 sprites, so support.

Hey there random person scrolling through one of my posts! Hope you have a nice day (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

I see what you're suggesting now, support.
I thought you were simply just wanting a block that sensed a sprite.

If I said no support highlight this from “Hi” to “AWESOME”:
