Day 18 and Still a Padawan

Today was a pretty good day, and I felt I accomplished a lot. I started the day out and scrapped the website I was building yesterday. I have found that a template will never quite give you the look and feel that you want, So now I am building it completely from scratch. Already I am much happier with the way it is looking. Check it out an let me know what you think. Below is the general layout of my homepage.

After that I started tackling all the little bugs in my game, like when my player collected health it was not undoing the damage on the player. A simple coroutine fixed that right up, haha its only been 18 days and I am already calling coroutines simple. The next bug I set out to fix was my secondary fire “The Death Rocket”. This took a little more thinking and after changing a bit of my code I had a working Death Rocket that turned off my regular lasers when it was active and only fired 1 rocket. Lastly I started on the Thruster Scaling bar. I wanted to try something cool and found my own sprites to use in the form of a circular dial with a percentage in the middle. Now I am trying to create the loading effect. I thought I had it with this bit of code below, but what I ended up doing was to turn on all the sprites at the same time. Now it just makes a big mess.

Today is a new day for problem solving and I have faith I can do it.
