Today, I completed the planetary radar in Crevis - a grid that shows the layout of the planets, gives you information on how much fuel it takes to get to each planet, and the distance between the planet you want to go to and the planet you are currently on.
In Crevis, your rocket can only hold 900 fuel. This may seem like a lot. However, around 100 fuel is used up in the liftoff of the rocket. Due to this limitation, you hypothetically would not be able to travel directly from your planet to, say, the planet farthest away from you. You would have to make consistent stops at planets for fuel. Upgrading your ship is also a possibility.
However, beware - the rocket does not stop you if you want to go to a planet and you don't have enough fuel for it. The rocket will simply stop in the middle of space, and you will be stuck there forever until you starve or dehydrate.
Until next time!
February's task is to improve the combat system and create a system for enemies and their AI.
