Now that I know I can use Rb+ for the other project, I've wanted to dive in with something far less demanding and give a go at doing something that will help me learn how to set everything up properly and will lessen the headache in the future for having to troubleshoot or understand what I'm doing wrong with more complex projects.

 

I've got about 4 hours into it so far and most of it's rendering graphics and doing the music and toying around with the variables but... I've got a ship in space that flips around at 28 frames of animation with a few space debris rocks with 4 frames each for fun and is completely controllable. It's a start...

A short video clip of it running...

 

Ultimately I would like to make a modernized Cosmic Ark clone for the Jag, should be simple and fast (but I know it's not going to be lol) and teach me a thing or two. If anyone remembers the 2600 game...

Thanks for the kind words guys.

Added lasers and sound effects. Still wonky looking but I'm learning!
