I've been playing around on VC# and XNA and I got some pretty good lookin smoke going on. Tell me what you think of it. Maximize the window for best viewing.

BTW Tell me what you think of the mouse pointer at the very end.

Yes it does, and so does the billowing clouds.
Good work.

I may be wrong though, but can smoke exist in space? :thumbsup:
Regards,

You make a good point but I do think there can be smoke. Who cares when it's so sexy? :thumbsup:

EDIT: It exists in Star Wars, good enough for me.

I know, it looks very good. When are you planning to release the game?

Well, it's not really a game yet. You must have read my other posts. The hardest part will definitely be AI, since graphics are pretty much checked off lol. I'm really just playing around with graphics right now. You can expect a game within 6 months. My discipline for progress will kick in when school starts.

Hope the EXE maker in VC# Studio works.

Here's a newer version. Now there's a few flames coming from the ship. Please don't say there can't be fire in space. I know this. It's still cool. :thumbsup:
The page may not be uploaded yet.

Also I could use some help. Obviously a space ship can't use disk brakes. Right now I have it that when you brake the ship puts out a white aura in front of it as seen in the video whenever I slow down. Can you come up with any ideas for brakes?

If something moves in space from what I understand will require a force greater or even to slow down and stop. I would imagine some sort of thruster array would accomplish this.

Maybe show off more smoke and flaming jets as brakes :thumbsup:
Heres a newer video where the smoke fades out instead of disappearing:
