Tyler – Week 5 Progress Report

Goals for the week:

  • Polish and add configuration to controls
  • Configure other entities
  • Resolve collision bugs

Accomplished:

  • Controls now keep player moving more in the direction they are facing (will gradually adjust velocity), max velocity/rotation, configurable
  • Fixed several collision bugs — no more crazy reactions (or at least… much less frequent),

Not completed:

  • Full server-side entity config — couldn’t be finished until we had established what was necessary for each object

Goals for next week:

  • Figure out game scale!!!
  • Asteroid/Resource/Tractor Beam config file
  • Figure out how to set up client-side console commands
  • Add to server console commands for easier testing
  • Help with sound integration?
  • Help with UI?

Morale:

The game can be played now!!!
