Homeworld-like 3D Space RTS engine

Postby angros47 » Sep 08, 2011 21:48

Image

It's just a demo, anyway:

-The white cylinders are "resources"; a ship can collect them (like the resource collector in HomeWorld)
-If you move a ship near an enemy ship, it will be attacked!
-A ship can protect another one, if you order to do
-you can give orders to both alignments
-the "move" command will show a grid: you can move it upper or lower using right mouse button
-cursor left/right and A/Z will turn the camera; cursor up/down and S/X will move the camera
-One ship will fire bombs, the other will shoot with a laser
-a fast ship will leave a trail

It uses OpenB3D.

Source code included. Feel free to mess with it.

Of course, ship models are from Elite game. You can replace them with more beautiful models.

It's just a test, and it's still buggy, so be kind, please!

Looks interesting. Not familiar with Homeworld.

Camera movement definitely needs to be more fluid and flexible.

Looks cool. Camera control with the mouse would be a good addition. Keep at it :-)

I could do it (be careful, the library included is a bit old); any preference about the site?

Personally keeping things in "Dropbox.com" and "4shared.com" for a short time, my decision by web recommends.If it is right, that's another question.

They both require creating an account. I used mediafire because it didn't need it.

However, I put it on my sourceforge site.

You can replace the file "opengl.bas" (that requires windows.bi) with the file 2d.bi included in the last openb3d package.

When I wrote the space rts, I had not yet included the support for 2d mode in the official version, so it was still really experimental, and the file had a temporary name.

Yess, done on linux.Compiled OK.Thanks for advices.
But no show again - started from console.
edit:
Problem fixed by TJF hint - lib's registering.

It would be good to add a few words about lib's features and installing on windows and linux- registering needed libs, dependencies, supported OpenGL 1x 2x 3x versions and lib's functionality and/or locked features on low-end/older cards on SF.net project site.
