Bmelts arc function is sexy stuff. Used it to represent varying faction strengths on a planet.

Pixel under cursor

Trying to track all the individual images and which one is on top can be a bit of a pain. We have a way to get the pixel from an ImageData, but not from absolute coordinates of the full display.

Any thoughts on an engine level function love.graphics.getPixel(x,y)? Is this even technically possible?

Re: LuaDoc for LOVE

Big problem with LuaDoc and most all the derivatives is that it has a locked in path. For example, if I have my code installed in Love/Project/Code, luaDoc will list this full path in the output files instead of the more relative and logical path. It's really annoying to have to move everything to r...

Re: Space Opera Gravity

Basically what I am saying in number 6 is to abandon support for older laptops by using render to texture, but if all you're going to use it for is ship decals you can easily have a menu option that changes between methods. Side note: I kept looking at your screenshots and thinking "Those moving sta...

Re: Space Opera Gravity

1. Have you ever played Escape Velocity:Nova? If not I highly suggest trying it. 2. I would also recommend focusing on one aspect of the game initially. "Finish" the combat or the strategic aspect. When finished, they should still be somewhat fun on their own. If they aren't and you are hoping it wi...

Signature added days later, so no, we couldn't initially tell. It's never too late to delete spam posts and accounts.

Re: Voronoi polygons (map generation)

I like the idea a lot but... why did it have to use canvas and framebuffers? Was it required for me to do? No. Was it the laziest and most efficient way from a coding and computational standpoint: Yes it was. Since almost all the hard stuff isn't the actual drawing you can easily mod it to not use ...
