All functional elements of the new level are working now. AI Engine and Gravity Engine seems to play nice with one another :>
As the level is almost complete, I will now briefly describe it.
The level places you in a relatively small asteroid field, with a large "Sun" asteroid nearby. The Sun has a gravity well, and every 7 minutes or so a comet orbits very close to it. The comet is heavily guarded and not meant to be attacked by the player.
Every time the comet comes past, hundreds of new enemy seedlings jump off, invading the galaxy, creating a serious problem for the player, and decisively changing the balance of power.
The object of the level is to take over the whole galaxy (excluding the Sun and the Comet). In order to accomplish this, the player must recover swiftly from the previous Comet attack, and then take over the galaxy within 7 minutes before the next attack arrives.
The level will be of Medium difficulty. This compares with all my previous maps which were Hard or Very Hard difficulty.
