Hey everyone,

Small post today, but I've got two screens of questionable quality, and one animated GIF, so read on!

Trajectory Indicator Mark II
Today Mark gave me a bomb impact indicator, so I threw it into the trajectory calculator and now it's a bit more obvious what that damn dotted line coming out of your plane means[grin] Anyways, heres a screen of the new indicator, but fear not, we're not quite done with it yet....



The impact indicator is also animated, and it looks a little something like this.. actually, it does look like this:



Vehicles
As I said in my prior post, I coded up vehicles yesterday, but unfortunately, Mark wasn't able to draw up a new Truck for me, so I had to use the old repair truck from Angels 20, but thats ok, because now we have little trucks that drive along the ground(which was a lot harder than it sounds) and... well thats all they do for now, but soon I'll strap a weapons object on them and then I'll have a cool screeny for you guys[grin] For now however, you'll have to look at this boring convoy of tow trucks... offroading tow trucks, which reminds me, I need to get road objects coded up.....



Well, thats all I've got for you guys tonight. I know its not that exciting, but soon I'll have some Bosses coded up, and that'll be pretty cool. I'll try and release a new video soon, so stay tuned! Peace Out!

Nice work. I like the bomb indicator idea, it really does help! I am assuming you will have bombs other than the retarted bomb of Angels 20 (however good that may have been)?

Cheers

Thanks, and yes, we're planning on having lots more weapons available to the player than in Angels 20, but rest assured, the retarded bombs are coming back.

NOTE: The 'retarded' in retarded bomb is not a clever play off of the term dumb bomb, the term 'retarded' in this context means "slowed down". In military parlance, a retarded munition has either pop-out fins or a small parachute that slows the descent of the munition so a low flying aircraft can escape the blast wave. That seemed to be a misconception when we released Angels 20 last year, and some people were offended by it, so I figure I'd address it here.
