MilliEarth is a fast-paced spaceship fight game, with macros.
Installation and Requirements
MilliEarth requires node.js to run on the server, and an HTML5-compliant browser in the client.
Server: install node.js. Install the module websocket: $ npm install websocket Now go to the root directory and run: $ node src/milliearth.js Optionally install supervisor, as root and globally: # npm install supervisor -g and run using supervisor: $ supervisor src/milliearth.js
Debian-specific instructions: package nodejs is only in unstable (sid). If you want to run MilliEarth on port 80 you will need libcap2-bin: # apt-get install libcap2-bin # setcap 'cap_net_bind_service=+ep' /usr/local/bin/node to give the permission cap_net_bind_service to node.js.
Client: just point your browser to the port configured in src/params.js: // the default port this.port = 80; For port 80 you can omit it: http://localhost/ and enjoy!
Two or more players engage in a mortal battle on MilliEarth: a unique asteroid beyond the orbit of Neptune. MilliEarth has one thousand of the Earth's orbit, and its weight is about one millionth -- by a phenomenal coincidence, its gravity very closely matches Earth's 9.8 m/s².
Point your cannon at the enemy and shoot! You can also move around, and even (if you accelerate fast enough) start flying in orbit. Be careful with enemy shots and with violent crashes.
Multi-player: press the "find opponent" button and look for an opponent that matches your skills.
One essential part of MilliEarth is to be able to develop your own enemies. Use atescript to control the computer and do amazing feats of space-battle- craft-man-ship, if that makes any sense at all.
Just edit the script that appears at the right of your computer opponent and start hacking!
See the enclosed file doc/atescript.txt for more info.
Thanks to Carlos Santisteban for so many enlightening discussions about elementary physics... We seem to have reversed our careers!
