I found a sprite that will work well in my project. I think it would take excessively long to make my own similar sprite. I don't want to borrow the scripts, just the sprite and its costumes. Is it ok to do so or it is against the rules of the honor code?

Here is the bird I want to borrow: http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/28379808/

It's very okay to borrow code snippets and from other works but don't forget forget to give credit and source links.

It is reasonable and not against CS50 Honour Code to do so. As per CS50 Honour Code:

Incorporating a few lines of code that you find online or elsewhere into your own code, provided that those lines are not themselves solutions to assigned problems and that you cite the lines' origins.


Is there an e-mail address for the creator of the original scratch project? I don't think you would run afoul of the academic honesty policy if you get permission from the original project owner to use their artwork, and then give credit to that project author in your project.


In the bottom right, there is a little up arrow, with a gray bar. If you click that, it will open the "backpack". You can drag and drop any sprites, scripts, sounds, etc. and use it in your own project.
