As promised, I've been working on the ability to create and modify new types of structures from within Stencyl. Here are some screenshots.

This sounds pretty amazing, I'm already thinking of many uses for this extension and can't wait to try it as soon as I finish my current development, thanks Justin!

Hi Justin,

although it seems VERY useful, I again can't use this extension. The same error pops up as in the Dialog Extension....am I doing something wrong? I mean, how can this be? I reinstalled the newest 3.2 build and created an absolut clean project.... this pops up directly after opening the project:
Unexpected problem on thread AWT-EventQueue-0: stencyl.sw.util.Locations.getGameDirectory(Lstencyl/core/lib/Game;)Ljava/lang/String;

this is driving me crazy ....i can't use any of our awesome extensions, that i need so urgend because of this stupid error......
do you know if anyone else is experiencing the same errors with any of your extensions? Or is it just me?

It's because 3.2 is still in a state of rapid change, so my extensions quickly fall out of date. I'm in the middle of the huge update you see above, so as soon as I've got it in a stable enough state I can release an update that will work with the latest version.

Good to hear but what's with the Dialog update?
I don't want to stress you, I am just curious when i will be able to start creating a story mode :D

As soon as the Data Structures Extension is stable enough to release. Which is very, very soon now.

Okay, the aforementioned update is ready for beta. Again, it requires the latest version of Stencyl as of the time of this posting.

This is incredibly useful.

From a programmer's point of view, I think this is probably the most useful (and impressive) extension.

Thanks for creating it; your work is appreciated.
