Re: Mars Lander. Any collaborators? Noobs welcome.

Hmm. Current sprite is a 'top down' view of a spaceship that lands on its thrusters.

The ones above are a side view. Will that work better?

Re: Mars Lander. Any collaborators? Noobs welcome.

Noobs don't understand Self, classes, oo and state machines etc. Doesn't mean we can't do that. :)

Re: Mars Lander. Any collaborators? Noobs welcome.

Yep. I'll do that next if that helps collaboration. Edit: Done. I'm still on mobile. I think it's right now. Do you think a paragraph or two on coding conventions would help? Is the style/pattern already obvious? I think I'll put comments at the start of each lander module to explain its purpose and...

Re: Mars Lander. Any collaborators? Noobs welcome.

Since you're a github pro I'll suggest you look at the cards/issues on github. There were two projects in the repository.

Maybe pick something small and easy while you get use to the coding style. :)

Sorry - my bad. They should be in the repository but slipped my mind. I accepted your merge on mobile phone. Hope it's okay now. Thanks for that contribution!

I assume you got the code to work. Hope you have some fun and find a way to contribute!

Re: Mars Lander. Any collaborators? Noobs welcome.

So I googled "steam punk spaceship" and I picked out three that I liked and two of them are LEGO models! I'd like the pixel art to show modules as modules are bought. I expect those to overlay the main sprite so I'm thinking this won't be a problem. Perhaps. The current sprite is also 32 x...

Re: State Machine demo!

I really need to get into the whole state machine thing. I think it is "next level" for my coding development. I've always been hesitant because it's not essential to use a state machine but, of course, there are many ways to do things and this might be better so I'll jump into it and lear...

Re: Mars Lander. Any collaborators? Noobs welcome.

Two landers = multiplayer. :=) Untitled4.png Untitled5.png I had a thought - with the lander - there will be modules and upgrades and things to improve the lander. We'll want those modules to be drawn on the lander as they are purchased. If we can, we need to make the lander 'modular' so that we can...

Re: Mars Lander. Any collaborators? Noobs welcome.

The lander definitely needs love. I don't have references but I like the steam-punk feel of the gas tanks so something like that? I'll Google references. Later. For those watching: I'll start thinking about co-op and net code. It shouldn't be that hard but it always is. I'm going this can be a fun p...

Re: KDP - Keyboard driven pixel art editor made in löve

Neat. Can it load png's including png's made by the tool?
