Polydes - Open Source Toolset Extensions / Points Extension

Here's a simple little extension as a Christmas gift.

It lets you place points on an actor, which then can be accessed in-game. No need to open an image editor and find and remember pixel offsets.

I've made all of my Toolset Extensions open source at GitHub. Right now, this includes the Dialog Extension, the Data Structures Extension, the Extras Manager Extension, and the Scene Link Extension.

I still have a good deal of refactoring, organizing, and cleaning of code and documents, but anybody is free to grab the extensions. I think all four of them require Stencyl 3.2, but even if you don't have 3.2 you can browse them for reference.

I can't guarantee the code to be robust, clean, maintainable, conventional, or anything really. These extensions have all served a secondary purpose of being a testbed for experiments and learning to program. If others pick them up and treat them as such I would be delighted.

Everybody is welcome to:
- Keep your eye on the repository for the latest version of each extension.
- Create a local clone and mess with the code to learn how to make extensions. Ask me if you have any questions, I'd be happy to help!
- Fork the extensions, make them your own.
- Contribute source code, submit bug reports and feature requests, or help create documentation and examples.
- Do anything you want!

Going forward, I'd like to view these extensions as the community's extensions. That's why I packaged them all under the name Polydes, instead of using my own name. The name Polydes is a throwback to "Polyhedron Designs", a semi-official Stencyl game production group from 2007. It was composed of maybe around 20 people. A community effort. Unfortunately, while we had a number of impressive Nintendo title knock-offs and original titles lines up, I don't recall that we ever ended up releasing any games.

Right now the Data Structures and Dialog extensions are undergoing a good deal of change, so they're both effectively broken. Don't build from source and overwrite a saved game that uses either of the two.
