BloxGaming SB3 / Merry Christmas Space Builders!
« on: December 25, 2017, 10:01:07 PM »
I hope that everyone had a great holiday.  I'm hoping Santa brought me some free time in 2018 for more SpaceBuild!  Miss playing with all of you.

Still okay by me,  I've seen him help other players since my last vote as well.

Cargo Bot e2, V1.03

This 'cargobot' comes in through a portal door, probably mounted on the inside of a ship, and scans for cargo.  Visual effect only.

Development / Re: New Spacebuild Roleplay and Other Relveant Ideas

@Shifty @RendStung

I'm not going to reply point-for-point, but I like the idea overall. 

Factions / Jobs:  This had been implemented before, but a gmod update broke it.  I think @Keeves would like to see it back on the server as well.  @bloxgate maybe you can send me the name / link of that mod?

Store / Money:  Maybe start small and just use the SB Mining Addon resources at first?  I feel this add-on is underutilized and may lend itself well to this since players can't spawn in SBMA resources (to my knowledge) and the storage devices already exist.  Would reset to zero when you disconnect?


Other tasks:  The grob are a good multiplayer task, but I agree that trying to battle a fleet of them versus 1 player usually results in a quick death.

The minge factor has increased daily with this player.


I have seen him use e2 blinders and teleport users and their props into space with the Asgard teleporter without their consent.


Last night when he was on, he had filled the skybox with a bunch of crap.

Oh thanks, maybe I'll post a short vid so others can see :)

EDIT:  See below!   ;D

I saw him help out a player Randy something for a few hours.  Not sure if it was a friend of his, but I'd give him a +1 anyway.  Randy wasn't a derp, so he got to help with several aspects of Spacebuild.

Expression 2 (E2) Code / Re: E2 - orbiting ship
« on: June 19, 2017, 02:28:01 AM »

What is it doing?
The gyro flies the ship out to an (x,y) point on the orbit (XYLock)
At the same time, it tries to find the correct altitude (ZLock)

Once this is complete, it tries to maintain a clockwise orbit (from above) by adjusting the pointing direction with Yaw and the distance from the planet with MoveRight

Disclaimer: It's version 1.0!
This isn't pretty, but it works (most of the time)
Multipliers are set low to keep the gyro from spazzing (most of the time)

Expression 2 (E2) Code / Re: E2 - orbiting ship
« on: June 18, 2017, 06:23:07 PM »
To circle/orbit a target I would set the AimVec to the target's position and MoveLeft/Right or MoveUp/Down.  That is a pretty standard practice, even from the years of NightHawk. 
However, I would like my ship's facing direction to maybe be 90° offset (normal) of the vector of the orbit center and the ship.

Moving a holo entity around using setPos using equations like this is a bit easier...


I'm trying to figure out how to control a gyropod to orbit the planet in a similar fashion.

Expression 2 (E2) Code / E2 - orbiting ship
« on: June 17, 2017, 07:47:21 PM »
I'd like to have a chip that will allow my ship to orbit a planet.  Possibly using the aimVector and a low MaxKPH on my gyro pod.   Open to other solutions as well, I may be thinking about this all wrong, thus making it overly complex.

Assuming I know the planet center location and the radius:
  Maintain a Z value of planet center + 1/2 radius
  Maintain an orbit the same radius as the planet
  I would think calculating the correct yaw angle and then going "Forward" would be easiest, but I'm not sure how to make that into the AimVec for the gyropod input.
 
Thanks for any help in anvance...
