In Topic: RTS or 4X ? What's your favourite ?

Yes, one of the problems of Space Games it's exactly the game design. Space is void, so you have to come up with natural obstacles to replace the mountains or rivers on earth. We are going to use gas clouds of diferent types, that block ships in diferent ways, so that you have to use diferent strategys/ships to get the job done.
Regarding the game in the blog, the game obviously is not done, and it's just showing ships shooting eachother.

In Topic: Isometric view.., from Arrays to Isometric view

10 December 2009 - 07:59 PM


Thanks Wyrframe.
My tiles are isometric, it's basically tiles to build a city, a isometric city.
The problem is i have buildings have are 1x1x1 tile (widthxlenghtxheight), so (58x58x1) and other tiles where buildings are bigger, like 3x2x2 (174x115x2).
That means that the second tile, besides being bigger than the firt one, it also has a taller buildings.
My problem is, doing this with a single array, that has always a tile size of (58x58), i can simply go trough the array, and do something like (in pseudocode):

for(iy = ; iy < num_tilesx)
ix = 0;
for(ix =0; ix = num_tilesy;
position.x = ix*58;
position.y = iy*58;

To do the same with bigger tiles, i can imagine a big mess in there.
Isn't there a cleaner way of doing this ? Passing from isometric to normal view, to simplify the math, and do this less messy ?
