Player Leveling Cont.

We continue the good fight against overly-easy leveling. Coming up today is level-based limitations on equipment! When you pick up items that are significantly more powerful than your plane’s capabilities, you won’t be able to equip them until your plane levels up far enough. It’ll very helpfully tell you what level you need to reach, right in the panel.

While looking at that item code, I worked on the display of the comparison arrows on items in the world. These arrows are meant to give you an idea at a glance whether an item has more or less power than the one you currently have equipped. That way, you can make a snap decision about whether to fly over and pick it up. Lotta junk out there in the world…. The arrows now change as you equip and level up, so they should always show a current comparison. Keep in mind that the comparison we make in the code is very simplistic and so it won’t always match your preferences. As you progress in the game, you’ll learn which weapons suit your playstyle the best.

We also continue to work on new content and features that will be ready for primetime in due time.
