Summary0001606: Pickaxe: annoying to mine single pixels
DescriptionThe pickaxe digs free in some area. But only if you actually hit the solid material.

It should be easier to dig away single pixels. Maybe by checking more than one position for solid material? Not sure how exactly that might be done, but it's annoying at the moment.

It already checks for pixels on a line from the clonk's center to the clicked point. So this really is only annoying when aiming for single pixels, maybe we can check for several lines with a small deviation in the angle? Then you would have to aim less precisely for those single pixels.

Hi! There's been a check-in that references this bug. For more information you can visit the repository browser at this address:

Pickaxe: Check material in a cone (0001606)

This makes digging away single pixels easier.


Luchs (administrator)

I implemented Maikel's suggestion. The attached image shows a visualization of the cone. The original line is in white, the additional checks are in red. It does roughly 1-2x more GBackSolid lookups, which seems reasonable to me. (I didn't benchmark whether skipping GBackSolid lookups like I am doing actually is faster though).
