Isometric Tank
This example uses variables and point_direction() to make the image index of an isometric sprite turn towards the mouse.

Target platforms:

Kinda original example and cool graphics! Did you make the tank yourself? 7/10

I didn't make the tank, I got it from Reiner's Tilesets.
@xXchaoXx: What's not original about it? I've searched on this site and there aren't any other examples like this.

You could of at least made the turret turning limited
The reason there isn't an example for this is because you are simply showing us a single function

Actually, Serprex, I showed you guys three functions. Shooting, Rotating the base, and the Turret. If I'm doing the math correctly, then that's...3.

| [#05] this an example of shooting?I'd hope not,the point was that you could choose an image_index based on a point_direction()
Along with that you seem to advertise the sprite being isometric?Ya,that seemed redundant(specially since you didn't make it...)

That's pretty cool. How do you make isometric sprites?
The method is only useful to me if I use original sprites. 7/10

You need to be a good 3D modeler and you need a good 3D modeler.
Unfortunately, I am a good 3D modeler but I have a crappy 3D modeler.

Or you can try drawing them, because of the 3D stuff's problems and you can never get the angle of the camera quite right.

Don't judge your graphics based on your modeler.Really,you could just get Anim8or

Or blender is free too.. But i do stick to Anim8or :)

OHH! I dident even think of doing that! Because you make the model and then take different pictures of it!! Great idea! and sence you helped me, I will help you! use

it doesent support game maker but it works wonders, and its free! and if you know Python scripting, then you can make and use a script on it so game maker WILL support it! :)

PS: This is a great example, I liked the isometric veiws, 10/10 because it helped me ALOT

I know about Blender. For some reason,it won't work on my comp. I use Art Of Illusion, it's pretty good... until your current version gets lost.
