    Hi all....

    How do you move a space ship around that is continuosly moving, so there is an effect of gravity and there is a speed that to turn round you have to accelerate the other way, and to keep afloat you have to keep pressing down to thrust upwards?

    Any Ideas Kieran -

    Keep track of X-velocity and Y-velocity... Every frame or so, add the X-velocity to the X-position and the Y-velocity to the Y-position. When the controls are used, add or subtract from the velocities to simulate acceleration. If you want to use gravity, add/subtract a small number from the Y-velocity every movement frame.

    Smile not really....

    That game is not what I'm looking for, I'm looking for one controlled by keyboard, and it has to be quite realistic except for graphics etc....

    Thanks!
