I am a beginner at Godot and programming overall, but, for various reasons I've decided to create a game on my own. That said I will appreciate any tips without hassling anyone for specifics, I can research things on my own. But I have no idea how to even begin to tackle this specific problem.
I want to create a top down shooter cRPG where stats matter amongst others for hit chance. Now, I want to make hits take place where I aim while taking into account various things, such as distance, obstacles, enemy stats, weapon stats, etc. Alas, I have no idea how to exactly make these "hits" to appear in a reticle, with whole mechanic being also used by enemies.
My only idea right now, is that it would work like a normal shooter - bullets fly normally, but the ones that are "successful" ignore everything and hit a spot in the aiming reticle (to put it into perspective, shooting beneath someone's legs behind them, so even though the bullet flew at that someone, the shot was aimed behind, so it did not hit them). Whether or not the success would occur, would be taken from stats - I believe once I learn how to make this way of shooting, I should be able to figure the rest out on my own. But right now, I have no idea how to begin.
Thank you for any and all tips.
