I finally got around to finishing my flying game. Guess I started it last year in 2.34. It doesn’t run well in other versions of Blender so I’ve posted exe versions, also blends for those who still have 2.34.
There are 2 versions of the game, one with all keyboard controls and one for joystick. I’ve only got an old 4 button joystick so I don’t know how it will perform on later ones.
Here are a few screen shots and instructions, hopefully this will tempt you to try the game.
BATTLE VALLEY THEME
Your base is under attack from enemy forces and you are in command of the last operational aircraft. Your task is to search out and destroy all theenemy forces before they over-run the base.
You will need to return to the base from time to time to refuel and re-arm. If your fuel depot is destroyed and you run out of fuel you must glide your plane to a safe landing. If you manage to land in one piece the score will be calculated at that point,if you crash-land you will loose.
The enemy have five trucks and five guns which they will tow into position one at a time. They are camouflaged so you will need to fly low to find them. They also have five gunboats which they bring up to shell your base. There are missile batteries too which defend their bases, getting too close them will spell disaster.
You will need to stay below 1000 feet if possible and within the Valley or the enemy radar will lock onto your aircraft and shoot you down.
Arrow keys…Manoeuvre Plane
Spacebar…Raise & Lower wheels
O…Bring up these controls to view in game
Destroy enemy missile battery…1000 points
" " gunboat …500 "
" " truck …300 "
" " gun …300 "
Destroy base headquarters …500 points
" " fuel depot …500 "
" " tower …500 "
" " aircraft …500 "
" " small building …300 "
1.Speed must be at least 150 to take off.
2.Raising wheels while on the ground will cause a crash.
3.Wheels must be raised to fire gun or missiles.
4.Landing may be easier if speed is reduced to 80 or 120, below this speed the engine will stall.
5.While on the ground avoid turning too quickly as aircraft may tip over.
6.The plane will sway after landing (as a real aircraft would), allow it to stop rocking before turning as the wings may catch the ground and cause a crash.
7.Landing practice is recommended!
Have fun. jrt.
PS. Just to remind you, the blends only work properly in Blender 2.34.
