Howdy all,

We just polished up an older .lsc we had kicking around, Heatseeker, that you might want to test drive. It animates guided missiles, rockets, aircraft, or anything that launches, flies, and chases a target.

The following link will let you download the current beta package. Comes with docs, example scenes and objects. It's save-disabled, but you'll be able to get a pretty good idea of what it can do.

This will be updated for the current version of Lightwave ASAP, but before that's started, we're looking to collect bug reports and suggestions. Your suggestions can only make this thing better, so any and all would be appreciated.

Thanks for your time. Apologies to the mods if this sort of post is verboten. No offense intended.

This is very cool. When will the commercial version be available? :question:

This would come in really handy on a current project.

Thanks. As soon as we can verify there aren't any major issues with using it under LW8+, the commercial version will be made available. Anyone using the latest versions of LW can speed this along just by submitting bug reports, etc.

That aside, our best guess is that within a week or two, v1.0 can be released commercially.

In the meantime, here's a shot of the interface for anyone else interested:

Do you have a price set on it yet?

Nothing firm yet, but it will probably end up being in the range of $20-35.

PM me if you'd like to test a save-enabled version of the current beta (free, of course) for the project you're working on. We can probably work something out.
