I’ve designed a couple of ships and wanna make them fight. I’m in the process of trying out different weapons and this is the first one I’m running into problems with:
(The file is a WMV about 500KB)
The lazer beam is made from a particle system that has it’s Norm value to the highest setting (2.000) - Yet I think this is too slow. Also, in this clip, the ship is stationary but when it is in flight the particles are affected by the ships speed and get pushed back… any suggestions as to how to better achieve this effect?
I’ve spotted a mistake in that the particle system running the thrusters at the rear come through the object the wrong way (if you look closely you can see this just after the ship fires)… How do you control this?
Another mistake is that the stars are too close to the camera and appear to be space particles rather than stars… I will increase the distance from the camera next time.
All other comments welcome.
