Methods used in SC2
« on: March 02, 2009, 04:41:48 am »

I'm making an arcade game strongly inspired by the SC2 melee (based on it, even). I was wondering how SC2 does certain things:

1. Slowing down the ship when attempting to thrust if you're already above max speed
2. Planet gravity

(Note: I am not a knowledgeable person in math or programming; my current math class is Geometry, and the only programming language I have ever used is Visual Basic if you count out the Game Maker scripting language (GML).)

Pretty much just adds a linear deceleration of more than your normal thrust.

2. Planet gravity
Badly.  Think VUX limpet behavior. Make up your own system.
