Zetsaika, I'm not sure if you want to download several GB of data ;).

Anyway, for lightweight actors, could we make bounding-box/pixel-perfect collision?

Don't click this if your computer has less than 641 kilobytes of RAM.

Maybe i should make myself more clear.

Days ago i was downloading some assets to amke a little game to get the grip of Stencyl.
I found myself lossing some time because to downlaod an asset you need to click to Download, wait it end and them save. There sould be a way to make it automatic(Click -> Download and Save without need of confirmation) and a download quene would be good too.

Oh, you mean background downloading like in Firefox? If so, I am with you, man! But I'm not sure if it'll be good for game's integrity. Anyway, this deserves it's own thread as this is not SMALL suggestion (from programmer's stand point it's much harder than begin download→halt program and resume when it finish).

Custom blocks related mini suggestions:

-make custom blocks shareable in the forge.

-make default description of custom blocks "None: right-click the block to edit description".

-Global custom blocks you made appear also in other game projects you have in Stencyl.

The ability to specify a default collision type when importing a tile sheet. Right now it defaults to square. Changing dozens of tiles gets tedious.

-The ability of edit a tileset as a "whole". The same effect as editing the tileset's .png directly but from the click of a button.

-The same as above but for individual tiles.

You know you can click and drag to select a bunch at once, right?

"Who uses this?" also for custom blocks.
With the need update you can right click on a behavior and see which actors/scenes are using it. It's a great feature, and I think it would be very useful if you could also do this for custom blocks (i.e. see which behaviors are using the block)

In FLOW - TIME a block with "do FOR x seconds"

I'm not sure I follow. What's the intended use for this?

At what interval? Do every step for x seconds? Do every x seconds for x seconds?
