Re: Eternity

I've been very quiet, but not dead... This is just a teaser, I'm slowly joining the pieces but I'm not quite there. 1.jpg It seem the same, but code for target acquisition and missiles is done. 2.jpg Scanner information. This was taken when docked in a planetary ring (cool, right?). For now there ar...

Re: Eternity

Forgot to mention that the ship has retro-rockets (you keep pressing down and the bar turns yellow) but with only 10% of the main rockets power. If you use autopilot you see how it breaks. But you're right: the best way to break is to turn around. With real spaceships happens the same. Also, 2 of th...

Re: Eternity

Re: Eternity

WOW! I did that! :awesome: Unfortunately, that's not what I want for now. It's a strange spread effect at high speed, and angle dependent, so of no use. I did spread = 0. Later I will try to do cooler engines. Right now I'm starting to think Object Oriented Lua. Instead of using one of those nice OO...

Eternity

When we are invited to someone's home we should bring some gift (preferably a desert). Since this is my first post, I'd like to show the beginning of my project. I've been following love for a long time, until now finally I started to learn lua. I plan to make something like a Elite 2D clone ( http:...
