New shield effects for ships. Better weapons impact tracking
Posted by Vidiot_X on Dec 17th, 2013
I have added shield effects for ships. Now weapons impact is indicated by an animated shield effect. In this development video the bot ships glow green and my ship glows red with the shield effect. This really helps with weapons impact tracking and looks cool. Also added is the energy status of each bot shown just under the ship.
I have also reduced the size of the weapons sprite for general laser/bullet style weapons. This helps with less weapons clutter with lots of ships engaged in battle. Weapons like bombs and EMP's will have larger animated effects for weapons discharge. Generally all the weapons and ship graphics and physics are fully configurable and can be changed to suit a map design.
