Update - Console, Shields, Stations and Asteroids


Console

Console


I've managed to create "smart" console, that will TAB-complete commands and their parameters (see video for example). This will allow me to play-test and debug faster.


Shields


What would a space game be without shields? Well... a space game without shields, but... that's not the point.

The shields will protect you from all damage, but beware! Spacesuits can go right trough them so watch where you fly unless you want to have red wind-shield.


Stations


Added new station module that will allow docking in the future. For now it only has animations.



Asteroids

Completely rewritten asteroid generation. It is now 200% more efficient, while still fully mineable and procedural. You can see how the collider generates in the video.

Astronaut for scale.

Asteroids either form a ring around a star, or float freely when there is no star.
