P1X3lShip View Mod
ScreenshotScreenshot P1X3lShip lives!

Inspired by a conversation in IRC about how lots of people have thought about making a ship the size of a single pixel, but no-one has actually published such a thing. So here you go! 90% of all incoming fire misses this ship, although area of effect weapons like explosions tend to have better luck.

P1X3l Cannon & P1X3l Burst launcher weapons both do Dark Steel damage and use a custom graphic effect to create rainbow colored pixel particles.

The main ship graphic is effectively a single 1x1 pixel using a 40-faces looping rainbow gradient. It uses a series of overlay graphics to create a sword-shaped constellation of pixels so you can easily track where the ship is and which way it is facing. The central overlays use the ship's graphic effect, and the outer overlays use the P1X3l Cannon's particle effect. Much easier to keep track of your ship now.

This is a god-mod ship and includes "cheater" utility items.

New plan...

In spite of the tedious effort put into making a 2 pixel ship, it may actually be possible to make it a true 1 pixel ship. I'm going to attempt to make an aiming system using overlays, with the eventual goal of making a separate utility mod. I'll start here with a separate xml file included in the PixelShip's zip archive once I have something functional. Stay tuned...

No updates uploaded as yet, just a status report...

The prototype aiming system is working. I'm currently re-working the concept code to be intrinsic to the PixelShip, as I've now converted the ship graphics to a single rainbow-ed pixel, as it is has got to have something to aim with. A single pixel is rather easy to lose track of on a star-filled background, so I'm also looking into creating a few extra overlays to make the body of the ship easier to spot at a glance.

Once all that is accomplished, I will be creating a separate mod for the Excalibur Targeting software ROM.

True single pixel ship ^_^

I used a series of overlays to make a sword shaped constellation of pixels. Only the one in the center can be hit by incoming fire. Enjoy!
