Training missions mechanics


I have the tutorial mechanics working. They had to be created from scratch as the game didn't have any system that allowed me pause the game, have a custom info message and point to which button to press to do something in particular.

The training will include a mission that guides you through the movement and rotation mechanics, a waypoint based mission and then a free flight environment with a few obstacles to fly around so you can master your skills.

I will have to model a few objects for this but I think it is worth the extra effort instead of just making the tutorial in one of the current game environments.

Back from Holidays


I am back from a long summer break and I have a long queue of great things to implement.

I  have been suggested to make training missions in the game and after many people complaining about how difficult it is to play I think I have to include them.

Most of the people spend the time necessary to learn how to play but many others give up too soon.

I am going to add a twist to the training too so everybody can enjoy the game and there will be something new for everybody :)

Crashes fixed


I have been talking to some of the people who experienced crashes and had contacted me about it.

It looks like the update has fixed their problems and haven´t had a problem since.

Update 1.1 already released


The first update is out there.

The game is the same but I have modified the loading process to improve memory use. There is also an option to reduce the memory even more in the "Space Centre" screen.

I hope this solves the crashing issues.
