Hi,
Don't know if you saw it but just published a tip to make an animated point hotspot image using the tools in the skin editor.
Tip Blog Post
This is open to so many mods, example rather than use an alpha to fade out you could use a colour logic block so it fads into black.
Why would you do that?
So the point hotspot is just as visible in a light scene as well as a dark scene. 8)

You can also make some funky effects like an atom shape.
Using the same true/false variable and timer you just change the following logic blocks in the two rectangles.

Rectangle 1:
Scaling: X: 1.00, Y: 0.4
Scaling Logic Block:
Trigger: *ht_ani
Comparison: =
Value: true
X: 0.4, Y: 1.00
Transition 0.5 seconds

Angle: -45
Angle Logic Block:
Trigger: *hs_ani
Comparison: =
Value: true
Angle: 45
Transition 0.5 seconds

Rectangle 2:
Scaling: X: 1.00, Y: 0.4
Scaling Logic Block:
Trigger: *ht_ani
Comparison: =
Value: true
X: 0.4, Y: 1.00
Transition 0.5 seconds

Angle: 45
Angle Logic Block:
Trigger: *hs_ani
Comparison: =
Value: true
Angle: -45
Transition 0.5 seconds

You should end up with something like this:

As the rings are made from the rectangle tool you can change size, colour and angle.
In other words go to town adding your own effects.
Have fun,
Regards,
Hopki :D

Works very well when I'm English.

There is a problem in the French translation?

Thanks Hopki - this tutorial provided the perfect solution for a problem that I needed to solve: was chuffed when I saw the email with the blog post and even more excited to have listened to it and put it into action.

Hi Hopki,

It works well, thanks. However, I am now trying it with an image instead of a rectangle but the transition is not working. It scales but it's not smooth. Any idea how to get it to work?

Thanks,
Jimin

Hi Jimin,
Make sure all the logic blocks in a single element has a transition selected.
If your still having issues please send in your skin.

@ Laurent B,
Hi, regarding it not working with the French language.
Can you give more information?

Trying to find out if bad translation but functions work or what.
The faux is not coming up in any translation so stumped.
Any further help would be good.
Regards,
Hopki

Hello,@Hopki
Here is a short video that explains the problem.https://youtu.be/orPJzT89pns
I do not speak English well enough to do it.
Thank you
