Squads...

added squad type, allow to have a huge airplanes in game, like representative airplanes.

only convert in real airplanes if you are very close to them.

great work - I don't like the map at all!

NEVER mix scales - it looks like you have flocks of birds, or the planes have babies - not a good thought...

The way the map is just sitting in the middle of the screen doesn't feel right!

A suggestion would be to have something along these lines that comes up from the bottom with the bottom being kept offscreen - sort of like the following:

Hi, i still working on Tora Tora!.


I had a stop for mental reasons that allowed me to recharge the batteries, and now I'm happy to program it again.

As I am close to the release date, I am working on the most important details, this week it is the Mission Editor's turn, which will allow me and the users to test the game to the fullest.

I managed to advance on many things, even so there is still a lot missing.
The game is well oriented, but I am thinking of not launching until I am 100% satisfied with the at least basic of the game.



testing the editor is amazing the number of units that i can add, so when jump to fly, i can use the close units to creat 3d real units on the game.

this is very good for the game.



Pilot, special made for close camera and for the video trailer.
the face texture is the pilot profile image


i start to detail some special ships





i add particles for smokes, diferent lenguages support, improve the landing and takeoff physic...

but the list to do is very huge yet... :)

about the name, i thinking that maibe is go to be a legal problem with the movie, so i trying to solve that with a japan friendly name.

One of the tasks that took me a lot of work was to improve the performance of the game, eliminate memory leaks, abuse of use of objects, poor cleaning of objects, images, textures.

At this moment, the performance of the game improved a lot, even so, I am very fair when it comes to manipulating projectiles, flaks, physics and all that together in the middle of combat it can get a bit heavy.

I also worked on the realism of starting the engine in a fun way, making the internal camera more realistic, and opening the cockpit the pilot pokes his head a little more.

the engine can be turned off, improve the flap theme, even so the flight physics lacks a bit of grace and realism.

The aircraft carriers can now have faithful escorts, who try to navigate in their proper position, it is nice to see how the ships list when turning.

I'm also adding merchant ships, occasional fishing boats, tankers and freighters, so I can shoot some tempting targets or have to protect them.


I also share the statistics of my game while I am developing it, it is a file that stores some information for ... I don't really know why.
