Beautiful stuff this month again!
Sadly, I worked on my small minecraft(1.7.10) frigate (the SS Potato) so I have nothing to show (again :D)… lil compact spaceship that moves in the 6 direction, has a cannon that shoots from 60 to 200 squares, 2 to 4 shells and can set a delay before shells explosions. Also has 2 bombardment slots, lights control and a personal beamer, all that controlled by a computer. The shipAPI methods make sure everything is secure (made an error once before that, and all my ship but one block exploded :D). And the computer can be set to listen via a modem and therefore be controlled by another computer via a remote control api (I use a tablet ^^).
Scripts can be written to control the ship for missions, such as an attack script such as:
- stop the lights
- move 20 up
- then move front 200
- then fire long range 4 shells max delay before explosion
- loop 10:
move 5 left
fire cannon 3 times
- move 150 front
- loop 10
bomb using the two slots 5 times
move 5 right
- move back 150
- move down 20
- lights on
Has a self destruct mechanism too.
Quite a nice control of the ship via lua console too, either from the ship computer or a tablet (or another computer).
- work on FTL (ship teleport)… need to test an idea see if it would work but think it should.
- small refactoring so controlling multiple ships would be better
- have some security so that anybody can’t control the ship by sniffing and broadcasting (it already doesn’t use the basic wcbe wireless because it could be used to self-destruct the ship… while now, no such problem exists).
Now I need to find someone ready to challenge my lil spaceship :D. And I need to find a cheap microphone to make a tutorial about such ship making.
PS: I’ll edit my post to remove all the SS Potato part if you peeps think it shouldn’t be here.
