  Walking Dead. Best show on TV. Perhaps one of the top 5 shows ever. I see every episode. Daryl is my favorite character but I liked his older brother Merl more.

  This 7DRL has certainly rekindled my passion for programming and game making. I was doing card games there for a year or so. It was a nice break. But when you see the Sun Crusher blowing up half the screen you realize a card game can just never give you that rush.

Yeah I was wondering if Merl is going to make a comeback. I like his black and white character better than Daryl's shades of grey, plus he cut his own hand off, cool. The series really has some good characters and they behave more like real people rather than "why the hell would they do that" moments.  Terra Nova is the complete opposite of this show, one dimensional characters and stupid, stupid plots. I was this close to doing a 7drl on Walking Dead...

  It's sort of a fantasy of mine that Merl is in charge of the gang that the prisoner kid (Robert?) came from. Just out there being awesome.

Good one, that did not occur to me, you are awesome alright! I am only up to where they brought the kid back, ep08 or 09 i think. 

Hmm I think we hijacked this thread :)

  Okay well back to the competition. I'm putting together the AI right now and have hit a snag. I want the star systems to rotate. This will be easy to do. I also want to have the enemy starships move around intelligently looking for good shots at the player (they already shoot with deadly accuracy). I do not have enough time to do both because doing both would be 10x as hard as doing one or the other.
 
  For obvious reasons having an AI that maneuvers to a good firing position is just so much easier than one that does this while taking into account a dynamic playing field.

  So what I'm thinking of doing is making the bad guys be 'killer satellites' that rotate around the star and shoot at the player. The player must judgement to hide behind planets and in asteroid fields avoiding the shots in an ever changing playing field.

  I'm disappointed I'll not be able to create intelligent enemy ships. But the game will still be interesting.
