I wholeheartedly welcome the addition of sprites to CurcuitBlocks. There seems to be a significant problem with it at the moment unfortunately. If you create a custom sprite and select it from the drawSprite drop-down, then CircuitBlocks stops working properly. The program can be uploaded but not saved. Sometimes the UI suffers other problems that stop if functioning at all. CircuitBlocks needs to be restarted to recover.
The built-in sprites work fine. The work-around is to use only built-in sprites. Then save, change the sprites, upload then restart and repeat.
A couple of other ideas that would be game-changers:
- Sprite clone
- Bitmap import/export
