Tick

The Tick plugin is specifically designed to allow the game engine to run an event in an interval greater than a single tick, to save performance resources, for games built in Construct 3.


The Tick plugin effectively gives you control to slow down the rate in which an event is ran.


The Tick plugin adds a condition labeled Every (x) ticks, which allows you to specify the frequency rate in which you want your event scope to run in the event sheet.
