    Aren't you the one who is making the amazing 3d shooter?

    Is this a side project?

    Yeah its a side project.

    I figure everyone can play this while I'm developing my 3D game.

    Why can't they just find other games to play while they wait for your 3d shooter?
    See you in 13

    There is no camera at all. It uses ortho but it doesn't have to.

    I changed things around a bit. Thought that the asteroids looked more like cow pies than anything.

    All thats left now is scoring, creating more level backdrops, hit detection, animation for explosions, and - well a front end.

    Of course there will never be this many asteroids on the screen at any time.

    I've added some color and fog. The asteroids look too much like flower children but I like the fog.

    Is your 3D game going to be a 3D asteroids? If not, maybe as an add-on when you're finished you could make it some kind of extra "mode" to play instead of other ships.
    Boy you stink, go take a shower before you continue to code. Better do your laundry and spray your chair too.

    The one and only resource for finding information.

    Next version of windows released!!!!

    I think they look better in that shot. They kind of looked like walnuts in the first screeny
