New Probe Feature: Projectile

Hello again!

I'm now focusing more on the forgotten planet and getting lots of things done.

The probe mode: "Protection", has been updated and the probe now rotates around the player in this mode, following the player.

I also coded the first Feature for the protection mode which is :Projectile.

The probe fires when the player fires.

Next up will be to program the next probe feature.

And the reason you really came here.... The youtube video:



Until next post!

The Forgotten Planet - New Network Code!

New Network Code!

Hello everyone!

Sorry for not posting in a looong time. I've been busy with life: Family, Job, Friends and tons of fun stuff IRL.

The old network code was buggy and did not work properly so I decided to rewrite the whole thing. After cleaning up most of the code and changing how I did things It started to work In Linux! But! As usual... windows didn't like my network code... so I had to rewrite some stuff again! Took me a while and the result is slower loading between rooms for players, but at least now it works!
Players won't be to sad waiting about 3-4 sec while the room and unit data is sent from the other player when entering his room.

I also managed to speed up the enemy data between players, so enemy movement is much more smooth now.

And the reason you really came by:
