Hello there! Hope everyone is doing good.
I am working on an Endless mobile space game. I am trying now to implement a system that spawns asteroids with a RANDOM speed and a RANDOM moving vector. This is the script I came up with:
# The center of the circle on which the Asteroids spawn
var sphereCenter = viewport / 2
# Now to spawning the asteroids
for i in range(asteroidsCount):
var spawn_pos = sphereCenter + sphereRadius.rotated(deg2rad(randi() % 360))
var asteroidInstance = asteroid.instance()
asteroidInstance.position = spawn_pos
# Randomly scale the asteroid
var scaleXY = rand_range(1, 3)
asteroidInstance.scale = Vector2(scaleXY, scaleXY)
# Here I choose the destination of the asteroid which is a RANDOM point from WITHIN my game's viewport.
var destination = Vector2((rand_range(100, viewport.x - 100)), (rand_range(100, viewport.y - 100)))
# I connect and emit these information to my Asteroid scene
self.connect("movingVector", asteroidInstance, 'move_towards_vector')
emit_signal('movingVector', spawn_pos, destination)
This is the code for my asteroid:
func move_towards_vector(spawn_pos, destination):
var asteroidSpeed = rand_range(min_speed, max_speed)
motion = (destination - spawn_pos).normalized() * asteroidSpeed
The problem about the code I am currently using is that, If I spawn multiple Asteroids, They all adapt the same speed and the same move vector which is not ideal. How can I make it that every single instance has its OWN values and not get affected by other asteroids'
Hope I made sense. Have a good one and Thanks in advance.
