Construct 3 Rotation Angles Reference

If you have trouble remembering how Construct 3 calculates rotation angles, here is a quick chart for you. Note that movingAngles (which I believe are directional vectors) use a different coordinate system in which values can be also negative.

If you want to to make the movingAngle of the moveTo behavior change the animation of a character to left or right, one option is to do this:

  • System: (bird.MoveTo.MovingAngle+360)%360 within 88 degrees of 180
    -> bird: Set animation to “flyLeft” (play from current frame)
  • Else
    ->bird: Set animation to “flyRight” (play from current frame)

The (angle+360)%360 expression converts the values to a range of 0-360 and then we can simply check if we are within a certain degree of 180 which points left and if that’s true we set the animation to the left one.
