I'm a newbie with GameMaker and my programming skills are really basic, so I've been following a four years old tutorial series I found- I want to make a Turn Based Strategy game, using a hex-grid to move and attack, pretty similar to Sid Meyer's Civilization.

For the past month or so I have been working on a turn-based platformer with a destructible terrain, much like the original Worms (1995). I wanted to create a small game which had online multiplayer capabilities, a game that does not require an account to play online. I originally had the idea...
Hi there! I've got experience working with action oriented games and have been doing GML for a few years now, but structurally the process of setting up a turn based battle system eludes me. On a 1v1 basis it's fine, but the logic and process of setting up a scenario with multiple enemy objects...
I'm trying to use for loops to determine the area that the player's companions are able to go to, and for some reason sometimes it will work and shrink if the section is hitting a wall, and other times it won't.
Here's the code:
