I am new to Dark Basic and at the moment I am making a 3d Breakout clone.I have the game running pretty well now on the first level and am now trying to code a few tweaks to make it more interesting.The maximum number of bricks in a level is 100.How would I code it so that when one of the bricks is hit it will start rotating,move along the y axis and when it reaches a certain position,destroy itself.I am using DB ver1.13.

thanks in advance.

use the object collision command (under "basic3d" in help) to determine when it's hit, then just have a variable that changes state when you detect a collision. When the variable has a new value, turn the object until it points in a certain direction, then move it until it reaches a certain point, then delete it (and create the obligatory explosion effect). Just read the names of commands in the help system, and check any that look promising.
