slight change to wasps to make them better
« on: June 13, 2021, 05:18:38 PM »

when a wasp starts shooting its laser at a ship run a 50/50 whether a bool is positive or negative, then every time the laser updates its damage output it updates a float with how close to the target it is on a scale from 0-1 (1 when directly over the enemy, 0 at max range) then multiplies that by its bool then the wasp and its laser (scaling back to normal size on the end of the laser hitting the enemy) get their scale set by that number. So the optical illusion of 3d height is created & ships getting swarmed by wasp drones look like they're inside of a crystal ball instead of a crystal disk. Which would look cool
