Re: DevLog: April 2017

are you going to put in carrier type ships? And if so are they going to have interchangable parts for say different fighter/bomber loadouts? Yes, carrier ships and fighters are planned. The exact mechanics for how they will be launched and controlled hasn't been decided yet. One idea is using some ...

I could maybe include a short video of the particles in action next time, once I have finished adding the new audio system for them. ;)
