How to put object above group?
1 Attachment(s)
i'm having a problem with a small project i'm working on in alice.

it's sort of a maze where a frog must make its way to the other side of the water by walking across a group of turtles. (picture attached)

i was wondering how i would go about making it so if the frog is not above a turtle, the game would end/restart.

I'm not COMPLETELY sure about this, but if you make an If/Else statement doing
if "frog" is "0.01" meters within "lake/water (whatever it is)"
Do "world.restart" (world.restart being a variable)
Else do nothing.
"world.restart" would be the frog restarting to the rock. So what you would do is create what is a called a "dummy object" (These, my friend, are life savers.) and place the dummy object on the rock. Have "world.restart" do this:
"frog" move to "dummy". I'm sorry if you aren't understanding what I am saying, and a link to making and using dummy objects is " [url][/url] "
Sorry if you didn't understand me, and if you didn't I hope the video helps!

i get what you mean with the dummy object but the problem is that the frog is never that close to the water.

If it's not on a turtle then it just floats above the water.

i attached the a2w file if you can help with this at all.

thanks for the quick reply by the way

No problem, I'll work on it and send it back.
