I made a flight simulator!

Finally settling down to start coding the actual game. Did a bit of preparation work earlier today, but mostly distractions. I’ve had the whole design fleshed out in my head since I got out of bed though, and it has given me a sort of fake feeling of comfort all day. Like I don’t actually have to write the code… Well, good news is that it should be possible to create and test the basic mechanics/rules with very little code or content, then if it does end up working properly I can dress it up fancy tomorrow.

So right now I have a crude flight simulator where you guide this here airliner in 3D with the arrow keys. Works surprisingly well, and I’m enjoying it. Might get complicated and confusing once I introduce the restricted airspace I had in mind though, but we’ll see. That’s next.
