You can make the thing eat the turtle and move w. procedures Danielj 67z

How to change a setting:
1. choose/decide which setting you want
2. if you want to change it click on the eye in the upper right hand corner
3. click on the different brushes to change the setting
4. if you like the setting hit save or if you don't hit cancel in order to start over

HOW DO YOU MAKE A TURTLE WORK BY ITS SELF AND MAKE IT SHOOT SOMETHING PLEASE SOME1 HELP ME

How do you make it so that (in a maze) when the turtle touches the lines on the sides that it goes back to the beginning?

PLEASE HELP!!!!!

nevermind somebody else helped me


--celia f. 6/7A

I want to know how do you make turtles disappear when they are touched?
-Tiara D. 6/7D


How do you make it so that when my turtle touches a certain color, it goes back to the beginning? also, how do you make it so that when my turtle
touchesanother turtle, it wins?
-Talia C. 6/7D

i can answer your first question:
first you make a procedure for lose

to lose
setpos [where your turtle starts]
end

then you go to the turtles backpack and click OnColor. then if the color that you want it to touch isnt black, change it. then in the space write lose.
hope it helps!

--celia f. 6/7A



EYYY Talia: You click on the turtles backpack and under rules it should have touching color, select the color and write announce [You won!] or whatever you want it to do when you win. For your second question, you do the ontouching in the rules tab. For example if you want it to win when it touches t2, you do announce [winner!] in the ontouching tab. Hope this helps. colored-turtles.gif

How do I make my turtle go back to the beginning when it touches something?

Libby I tried out the procedure you posted for steering and I don't get it. Please help!!!!!
--Celia F. 6/7A

Didn't work for me too! Ugh. I'll never figure MW out!! What do you put in the buttons for the procedure???????!!!!!!!
~Samantha W. 6/7 V~

Libby's on the trip.. :p What she's saying doesn't make any sense.. Do "trial-and-error" Like Ms.Rives says ..... WHAT'S GOING ON!?!?! O.o -Vicky S. 6/7-A

celia you have to write the procedure go so it can move with your key (arrows)

I got it now. But how do you make it announce You Won or something when a turtle touches another turtle? There's one answer for it but it doesn't help. =(
--Celia F.
also i tried this procedure:
to win
if touchedturtle="game [announce [~Congrats! You won!~]]
end
and it didn't work :[
help please!!
--Celia F. 6/7A
do you have a turtle named game? the above procedure asks if the touched turtle's name is game then announce Congrats You Won! (Ms.R)
I tried the same thing except with t2 in the procedure and it still didn't work. It keeps saying I don't know how to t1 when I didn't put it in the procedure--Celia F.
I think you make a command.. then make an announcement box- Vicky S.

Then i kinda have no more ideas to make it work ..... :/ SORRY!!!!! 'I really want to know how to fill a a part of my house .. when the thingy says i already used fill.. O.o HELP. - Vicky S. 6/7-A

Hi, back from the trip.... I have more questions! When i touch something how can i make it win and turn it into a new level?
-Libby

If you READ the help information you get all kinds of insight! (Ms. R)

These are the rules from the Help:

Turtles can be programmed to react when they touch any other turtle. In the OnTouching field (in the Turtle's Backpack), type the instruction to run when the turtle touches (or is touched by) another turtle. Any change in the state of a turtle that results in a "collision" that you can observe visually will trigger a collision detection: fd, bk, home, setpos, drag and drop, setsize, etc.}}

Both the "active" turtle (the one that is touching, due to a change in its state) and the "passive" turtle (the one that is touched) will react to the collision and do whatever they are instructed to do.

But what should we write in the space? -->nina 6/7B
