Text of this guide (for searching): This script tile is used in a test for interactions between objects. The word 'dot' is a placeholder for an object you select. The test asks If: one object overlaps another object and the answer is yes, then: you decide what happens next. Script Tile: Overlaps Dot. Here, the object is a painting of a gull. The 'dot' will be a tile representing the other object, a boat. Open the boat's halo; click the orange handle. Put the boat's tile on top of the 'dot' to make one script tile. Start the script ticking. Click go. Open Viewers to see the scripts.
