I really like how this looks like now. Only thing is that I would make the title screen menu fade in faster. Also, when we zoom in very very far, is there a command we can use to move camera back to our main unit or base? That way we won't get lost or something.

Thanks!

I hadn't worked on the menu in a bit, after building procedures I will finish that.

Explanation for no way to get lost:
Spoiler For Spoiler:
As for the getting lost. The zoom input was actually put in in the first place to find your way back if you got lost. (The farther your zoom the closer the relative location of the base). the zoom level max is around 0.0007% original zoom (1) this allows you to see stars as far as possible. Not only will determining which star your base is close to help you, you should also know that the fastest ship is only capable of traveling from screen edge to screen edge at zoom level 0.07% within a time frame of about 15 minutes. The ability to get lost is far outside of my worries. There is also a spinning "Locator around the cursor that tells you the direction of the ship selected from the cursor ;).

My overall answer is, I probably will not give a button to move back to a unit BECAUSE, You have to try REALLY hard to get lost ._..

However if you feel that a button/command would be more feasible, I would be happy to spend 5 more minutes to better suite the needs of the player! ;)

OH! And I almost forgot! There is going to be a minimap/radar at the bottom middle.

 AKA: I'm not gonna LET you get lost! >:D

Oh a mini map would actually help. My worry was more about if you zoomed out then moved really really far on the map.

Lol DJ, why are you moving very far distances at farthest zoom.
Looking for easter eggs? :P

Yeah I'll try to help prevent that. :)

Do you have an Android or access to a computer?
I'll give you the source code after I get it up on the market, that way you can play it on pc. :P

Not to mention, I mentioned I would port it to pc with Java later. :P ;)

Well, If I get it working, I'll see what I can do about linux. But even if I don't get a linux version. You can always use an a program like wine. :)
So if it's out for windows. Theres a good chance it's out for linux.

Oh I meant by mistake. if your game is available for most mobile devices, there are some of them where touch screen controls are absolutely horrible, especially iPhones, and I saw many instances of things dezooming by themselves for example when scrolling around, or in Android, when the phone has a lag spike, it suddenly scrolls incredibly fast through tweets or Facebook wall posts for no reason.

Just to say it again, the game looks awesome! I know it must have taken forever to complete. Do you have a site for it?

@AssemblyBandit, Unfortunately no. The closest thing I have is a facebook page for my team of devs. (Was 5, now 2. Some people were too lazy. >_<)
I also wont lie, I am slacking off a lot  :-[. If I'm going to get a Java pc version running, I'm going to need to stop procrastinating XD.

@DJ, I know exactly what you mean. and as a matter of fact, there are some scrolling bugs. (No known lag spikes yet! :D)

How scrolling works, and why the bugs are hella easy fixes ;):
Spoiler For Spoiler:
Scrolling takes the finger location and stores it into a variable called fingerX1 and fingerY1. Before fingerX1 and fingerY1 are set, fingerX2 and fingerY2 are set equals to fingerX1 and fingerY1. After this has taken place the distance from fingerX1 and fingerY2 is calculated(easy) and is set to a variable called iScrollX and iScrollY. These are then constantly added the offset value for the screen. If someone were to touch both ends of the screen, this would cause the two variables to have a great difference, thus an unintentional amount of scrolling. (bug) By putting a limit on how far your finger can move at a time, this bug can be squashed.


I have a question of great importance. The subject was brought up(By me?) about having walls since this is a top down 2D game, walls would definitely be feasible. The only problem is they are not a realistic addition to the game, since space has a full 3D scope that would have to be covered with a wall.

EDIT: Bubble like Shields would actually be a great idea! If you agree...?

I guess you could maybe have some sort of big obstacles acting as walls, such as large ship wrecks, like in Star Fox stages.
