I figured it’s about time for some sign of life around here – so here’s one slightly upgraded old Kobo Mk I in a world of hurt!
As you can see, objects cast simple shadows, engines have proper exhaust flames, and there is a HUD overlay with some bars and stuff. What you cannot see is the background music and sound effects.
The circle of red arrows is just some test code I added right before taking the screenshot. Those arrows will be used as a warning system for off-screen enemies and other important objects, so you don’t have to look at a small radar screen all the time.
Up next is more collision detection code, so you can shoot those blue bombs! Right now, all you can do about them is fly around and trick them into walls. Fortunately, they’re pretty stupid – but they make up for it by being almost as fast as the Kobo.
