Snake in Total Miner
« on: July 11, 2015, 06:45:25 PM »
Hey guys, here's something I made the other day. As you can probably guess from the name of the topic, it's snake. Here's a video (Disclaimer: Beware of 'potato' like quality):

Spoiler for Hidden Content:

There's a few things in the system I left for testing reasons, like the constant spam of the test notification, but I think it's pretty cool. Also, any thoughts or opinions are always nice :P. I'll make a following video of how it works if someone wants to see it.

Thanks!

Thanks, I've been scripting since it got in the game. Definitely my favorite part :)

This is certainly a very neat display of scripting. Excellent work! I look forward to trying this in person some day.

Thanks. If you guys have any ideas on what I should make next, I would love the ideas.

A pacman game would be neat. I imagine the scriptwork would be somewhat similar.

I was thinking about that, but I don't believe total miner could render that many different moving blocks without lagging :P. Might as well give it a go!

Might be something that would better fit the PC version, but, as you said, it's worth a shot!

It's more a case of how often a graphics refresh is required rather than how many blocks to draw.

Are the blocks randomly placed? Or is it the same pattern everytime? If its the first one, how'd you manage that? Great Job!

They're randomly placed. I have it checking every block on the top row with a IsBlock [none] [true] then IsRandom [x) [y] x being length of the board and y being total blocks possible. Then I just offset the script for the rest of the rows.
