This code is based off of Chapter 1 of HTDP. I've gotten this far and it wasn't as bad as last time. And it's been 5 years (I can't believe it) since I've touched this language. The only issues I have really are two things.
- I couldn't find a way to do one of the suggestions. Which was: How would change the program so that the rocket lands on a flat rock bed that is 10 pixels higher than the bottom of the scene? Don't forget to change the scenery, too. When I tried adding another function call to render-shownship, I kept getting an error.
- The spaceship goes down to the bottom of the screen, then accelerates up the screen. I'm a bit lost on why that is.
Outside of those two things. I'm quite happy with my progress. I've thankfully gotten over the prefix issue as well, lol.
