Here is the first pass at the Pico-8 Flight Simulator in filled and shaded 3D.
Explore an expansive, mountainous world and avoid crashing.
(Simulation might be a stretch, as nothing about the aircraft physics is actually modeled... but you have to start somewhere.)
Left / Right Arrow: Turn
Up / Down Arrow: Increase / Decrease Pitch
I was feeling down about the frame rate, but then I looked at videos of flight simulators from the late 80's and early 90's and that made me feel better :-D.
--Fixed movement bug
--More varied terrain
--Some sort of goal (perhaps travel from airport to airport and land... like a real flight sim...)
@BenWiley4000 I know older builds of P8 had only 256k of memory, and at some point it was bumped up to 512. Since you're running the latest version, that should be the case for you as well. Perhaps a bug in the Linux build, either missing the updated memory limit, or something wrong with the garbage collector?
Or, maybe instead of updating it, you installed another instance of it, and running from a shortcut that points to the old copy?
