Post subject:  MyProject2011: control of the Gunship

I've just uploaded a new version with a menu to customize controls. You can choose your own keys and adjust the mouse and keyboard sensitivity.

Feel free to comment the Gunship's controls. My initial thought was to give the player the sensation of a flying FPS : fast acceleration, strafing, stationary flight ...ect



Online Demo : http://www.aftermoon.net/myproject2011/WIP-Demo.html

I also plan to use the "fire" key to trigger actions, like in this demo:

It looks good. Though I guess we're missing a key to raise and lower altitude (unless we're using an airplane instead of an helicopter). I like the little control menu you added.

The stationary flight should allow more mobility to the sides than when you are moving forward (or backwards) as it might be helpful to avoid getting shot down while targeting something.

I think you should add some spawners (And work on them if there isn't one already) so in the future there is no need to reload the game so we can have more target practice (and test weapons/others more effective). And that's about it. Though the turrets on the buildings should be allowed to fire downwards.

I don't want to add additional keys to control the gunship, I would like to keep it simple. But I have increased the angle to climb up and down. It is now possible to fly near vertically.

I haven't implemented a different strafe speed for stationary flight, but I have increased the strafe speed.

increased priority of this task on my ToDo list ;)

In fact their field of view (and aim) is fully modifiable, but they are actually obstructed by the building structure.

I've just updated the online demo, don't forget to give me some feedback ;)

Note: I don't understand what is this music in the video. It was added by Dailymotion without any action from me :lol:

I've found a little collision bug:

Actually the collisions are really simplified, the whole gunship is only managed like a sphere.
Accurate collisions will come ... later ;)

Yeah, it's not like it matters whether or not we collide correct enough unless we have some sort of health.
