Exclamation Initialize Random Integer??? - 07-22-2021, 02:48 PM

I am trying to get patches of thistle to pop up at random, and I cannot initialize the random integer to pull from the array. My class is using the Alice 3 in Action with Java textbook that came out in 2015, and I realized today that the textbook doesn't match the version of Alice I have. If anyone knows a workaround, I would REALLY appreciate it!!! This is due Sunday

I uploaded the file. I really REALLY need help. Thanks in advance!

Default Random Array Index - 07-23-2021, 08:55 AM

Send me an email don@alice.org if you would like a screenshot. I cannot seem to attach one right now, for some reason.

Click on thistle in the Move Up instruction.

From the drop-down menu that appears, select thistlePatch[???] at the bottom of the menu then select your random number variable from the sub-menu.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I hope the helps.

Thank you! I will need a screenshot. For some reason, some of my thistles think they're rockets and are lifting offscreen.
