We have been using RobotMesh Blockly for the past 2 years (RobotC does not work on Macs; we are a Mac school) and it was interesting at Worlds last year that a Judge told the students that they would not be able to do well without using Robot C as they were working with limited coding capabilities.
I was unaware that using Robot C gave better control of a VEX IQ Robot.
My question is - will VEXcode give full control over all VEX IQ capabilities? Will it replace everything that could be done with Robot C? (Is this available in Blocks, or do we have to wait for a text-based coding solution for full control?)
[Digression - I understood that the Blockly version of RobotMesh had as much scope as using the written Python. I had been thinking about moving to text-based coding, purely as a ‘greater challenge’ to the students: if I had realised that they would have greater control through using text-based coding, I would have pursued this line initially!]
