Use particles!

I used decals in my Asteroids thingy but now we have enough control over particles to make them a better option.

Yeah m8 saw you had been doing something in another post the mouse movement one so is there a way to have say a particle fire from like either side of the ship and just hit the sight at the centre of the screen where the crosshair is and instead of like in that other post did e.g 10 damage (adjustable per craft) instead of killing them. This I would presume I would need to add to the spacecraft script (your edited aircraft script)?

Check out the script to see how it works, to change where the particles are emitted from change the values for each barrel.
To change the velocity of the particles change the 'velocity' variable.

You would need to add code to cast a ray in the direction of fire to detect 'hits' on entities and process the hits appropriately.

Erm ...lol confused.com spent all afternoon creating freelancer models, building interior stations/planet levels assembling them all and now have to comprehend your level of lua coding. rofl raycasting? OMG right let me stick my head in the freezer for a bit jk m8 gonna check out your script see if I can make any sense of it. But I'm no scripter really I just adapt them I'm ok with inventories but I'll have a go

It is a relatively simple script.

When mouse pressed calculate a vector in the direction the player is looking, calculate the start position for the particles (i.e. the 'barrel' position) and generate a particle at that point with the vector as the 'speed' parameters.

Ray casting is reasonably easy to understand, the IntersectAll command is used with the start and end of the ray, it returns the object Id of the first object that the ray intersects or 0 if nothing is in the way.

The start position of the ray is the barrel position (i.e. the position we specified for the particle spawn) and to calculate the end position just do:


If hitObj is not 0 (or nil, best to test for nil just in case) then you can call the commands to get the hit location.

@ osiem80 yeah that script on its own would adapt nicely to some kind of galaxian style game Ok pulled the head out of the freezer, script works well until the ship starts to turn at y angles I suppose its because its on another entity not the ship itself so I'm currently trying to add it to the ship script see if I can get it to run form there. You can see in the vid how it starts to wander off.

It's because the script is using the player position and angle!

You need to incorporate the script into the spacecraft script and change it to use the position and angles of the spacecraft.

Have done that m8 still wandering off looks nice when it lines up though also added a new sound which worked quite well.(unless I have done something weird in the script which wouldn't surprise me lol.
Thanks Dave just using the freelancer models as a stand in its actually a rebuild of Galaxy

Two new models the "Galaxy Alpha Fighter" and the "Galaxy Alpha Hauler"
