RE: Random Ideas by resoL
Hi,

I am adding animated map parts at the moment. The wormhole effect is an animated map part you can place anywhere via the map editor. There are a few caveats, one being that although you can have an animated image for a map part it has to conform to any static collision added to it, if it has collision. So while a animated asteroid is allowed with rotation it (for now) can't have collision as there is no rotation allowed in the current collision model. This is a performance issue for low end systems as rotating all the vector points and lines can be CPU costly. With that said parts can be potentially moved around in game such as shooting a part and making it move. Something I will look into at a later date.

At the moment the whole map can be rotated (really its the display that gets rotated) so a map can be viewed at any angle which is cool but really is a projection trick and not the actual parts being rotated. After I get everything up and running I will look into adding rotation to the collision model. As I begin to squeeze more and more efficiency out of the engine there will hopefully be enough free resources to support it as I intend to support devices on down to tablets which are not the best at performance.
