- So we have looked at creating an action…in our SpriteKit scene file in multiple ways,…but we haven't yet looked at how…to create an animation with code.…So on the screen here, I have a block selected.…it's just a red square,…and I have physics properties on it.…It's static and it's called "block".…So that's it's name in the name field.…So let's go over to GameScene.swift…and we're going to create a variable to reference this,…just like "cannon".…So I'm going into line 18 here, and I'm copying that,…I'll change "cannon" to "block" in the copied code,…and then I'm going to go to line 24,…re-instantiate the "cannon",…and copy and paste that as well,…changing "cannon" to "block" both in the name…of the variable, and in the string.…
So now, we have an element called "block"…that we can reference with our code.…So, how do we make it rotate forever?…Step 1: We decide the amount of degrees…we want to rotate by.…So I'm going to define degrees as 90.0,…just like we did before,…90 degrees over the space of one second.…Let's go to the next line,…
