Mouse Support!

Well I’ve spent the last two days mostly doing mouse support for Approaching Infinity. You can right click anywhere on the map to go there by autopilot. You can left click on enemies to select them as targets and then fire. You can even navigate the warp screen and banker station menus with the mouse. I also improved the enemy spaceship AI, and made them attack eachother. Pirates attack freighters, and Gruff attack pirates. Further down the line, you will learn that the Limoquee and the Vordalene are mortal enemies, and shoot eachother on sight.

The autopilot feature and the enemy AI is all made possible using Dijkstra Maps. Check it out for your game AI or auto-explore feature.
