Today was my first day of lifeguarding this summer, so I didn't get much done except add some features to the Light Flak objects.
The Flak in Angels 22 is split up into around 4 different types, Light (rapid fire with small projectiles), Heavy (large airburst artillery), SAM (large guided missiles), Directed Energy (pretty much a laser). The Light AAA is the only one implemented so far, but everything else builds on the Light stuff, so it shouldn't be that hard to put some more advanced stuff together. Anyways, the Light AAA now has a traversal rate, which is the speed at which the turret rotates, and a little barrel sprite that tracks the AAA's target. I also wrote some simple AI code that determines what target to track (pretty much by hardcoded importance, ie. AWACS > Fighter > Paratrooper). Now the flak can decide what target to fire upon, and then it only fires when the barrel is pointing more or less near the target, which makes the flak look smarter. Well, here's a screen of a light flak type firing it's gun as fast as possible at the player (Note Mark's new textures).
Alright, I'm tired, so let us know what you guys think, and I'll tlak to you guys later! Peace Out!
