Otherwise, die a brutal firey death and be absorbed into the lunar land mass.'

Cheers to the pigmi indie squad for the general lander
concept and procedural land code.
*update may19: added landing indicator, fixed carry-over velocity
MBoffin: cheers, your itch.io carts have been helpful to me!
Not sure whether creating multiple inits() is the way to go about building a progression system. Either way I was looking at leveraging the fuel gauge and/or a variety of fuel pickup/obstacles.
dw817: thanks I had been thinking (along those lines)^
PicoLate - ..cheers! Aiming for a sense of immediacy/relayability with the mechanics - though I really owe it to pigmi squad for the land code.
dw817: Yes at this stage it's just based on remaining fuel - the thought was it's a company bonus for efficiency type thing, but the possibility of running out of fuel also encourages a faster descent, hence balancing speed with a low landing velocity.
Wow an eye opener - seeing the original I mean - cheers for the link.
I also tried scaling the procedural land giving a similar scale as the original, but didn't seem to work as well at 128 x 128.
