I am knee deep in code right now. New level Flufforia is going to be heavily scripted... I figured I would try to make something really unusual and fun, rather than just trying to make a difficult level. There is huge scope in the editor to do awesome crazy things, like for example you could create asteroid fields based on mathematical functions, like fractals... You can manually order a specific empire to send a specific number of seeds from a specific asteroid to another specific asteroid, so you can basically script attacks and fine tune them to be super-challenging. There is so much scope to do cool stuff, it seems a shame there aren't more people getting involved. :>
It doesn't really take long to understand the lua language. If you have the slightest idea about programming in ANY language, even just pseudo-code, it's really not that hard to understand what is going on and learn the basics in an evening.
Now I'm off to figure out how to script for laser mines !
