Re: TLfres - resolution freedom

This library is very old and not compatible with modern versions of Love2D. I'm going to port it once I can figure out the correct aspect ratio math instead of my old kludge.

Re: [Help] Distorting Map in a circle/Circular Distortion

I've often thought about this subject, especially how to do it while avoiding shaders (seeing as how my Thinkpad X60 Tablet is stuck at OpenGL 1.4) and just had a new idea: Make your game with your desired standard square tilemap. When drawing, consider your planet as nSpokes radial lines from the c...

Re: Continuous Collision Detection

Wouldn't time to collision basically be (mutual approach velocity / distance)?

Re: Continuous Collision Detection

I'm not too experienced with CCD, but have coded physics many times now. My advice would be this: Use your current CCD method. Use it for each star and planet (nice bonus: correct shape!), and also for each ship or station. Set their circle diameter so that the circle covers them entirely. Wait unti...

Re: The Hacksperiment [Community Project]

The idea is good and I would be very proud if we can establish something that epic [...] I'm not sure if my base structure of the project fit to such an ambitious project. We'll see. I'm still working on it (it needs a lot of polish and testing!), but it IS currently functional (sans the content pa...

Re: math.clamp?

This actually works! :crazy: But edge-cases might exist? function clamp (low, num, high) local s = string local digitLength = s.len( math.floor(high) ) local function c(n, p) return unpack( -- it's not a party without unpack and string.format { s.byte ( -- convert to ASCII code s.format( "%0"..digit...

Re: The Hacksperiment [Community Project]

What synchronistic timing! I just started work on an Entity-Component System library for Lua. The grand idea is, since these systems can be so dynamic and independent (as in, no dependencies, no inheritance morass), why not have everything as content packs which can be chosen by the player? If you w...

I'm interested in participating, but only if it's not MMO. :monocle:

Re: Abandoned Projects Showcase or Whatever...

My more-completed semi-abandoned projects are on the wiki. There were a number of others which I haven't shown, and still-earlier projects, some of which (in descending chronological order): * Relentless , top-down 16-bit shooter/brawler where you play a character who is much more durable and strong...

Re: Trail Meshes

Superb work! I'm so glad this is being refined. If you need help dissecting my code, or would rather discuss the concept rather than my implementation, please feel free to contact me. The general idea is, you want trail points to be able to independently execute simple transformations, rather than j...
