Problems with the "Create sprite_type" block

Today all projects that use the “Create sprite_type” command have stopped working correctly.
Project link:
In this project, sprites must be created and moved down. But now one sprite is created and remains in one place.

And we noticed a peculiarity: if you copy this project into your account and immediately run the test, everything works. But if you go to “Blocks” and then run the test, the “Create sprite_type” block stops working correctly.

Hello @maggik555bydwc
Thanks for sharing this issue. We’ll flag it to our engineering team and provide an update as soon as possible.

I also have the same problem,
I tried to “Create sprite_type” [ST_bullet] at a [Rocket]'s position and “set the sprite y’s speed to 100” whenever another sprite [shoot_btn] were clicked – The result is the sprite was created, but can’t move at y coordinate at all. Here are the ss of my code:

This is what also makes it peculiar :

When I previewed the following project, it seems to have “create sprite_type” command working perfectly: Thunkable – Space Invaders Project. But when I remixed it, and previewed it from my account, the “create sprite_type” command seems to be broken – with the same behaviour as I shown above.

So from this case I believe there is a bug related to “create sprite_type” command

Please fix this @ioannis
