0.3.0 Release: Missiles, AI Jets, New Name

Update time! This one includes some major changes that have elevated the project out of "Prototype" status to "In Development". I can't guarantee we'll see Version 1.0, but at least it's starting to look like a proper game.

First, it has an actual name now. Instead of "Flying Game Prototype", it's now "Forsaken Airspace". This isn't merely an arbitrary name: It provides a bit of a clue about the game's planned story and overall tone.

Now for the new features. The major ones are:

  • Missiles. They lock onto enemies, and have to be replenished in your air base's workshop.
  • AI-controlled enemy jets. They're fast, they have missiles, and they want you dead.
  • A paint options menu in the workshop, where you can spend your hard-earned points.

Full 0.3.0 changelog:

- Optimized projectiles.
- Slightly increased projectile fire energy cost.
- Made flight physics framerate-independent.
- Tweaked flight physics: More inertia, reworked aerodynamic drag.
- Increased gravity.
- Jet emits smoke when heavily damaged.
- Fixed HUD target sizes for turrets and air bases.
- Added missiles, which can be replenished at the workshop.

- Darkened HUD bars.
- Bound X key to primary weapon as an alternate firing input.
- Added more turrets and reduced clustering.
- Rebalanced health and damage.
