Hi Guys, I have been punching away at how to fix my problem for two days and gave finally decided to post it.

I am building a side scroller/endless runner. It's a very simple game and i can program it without any problems if it weren't for one of my "features" (don't know what to call it). Instead of running on a flat piece of land i'm trying to make the land slightly round, to give the impression that you are running on the earth or moon or any planet really.

My question is, How do I get my surface to be slightly rounded and move endlessly that way?

Just a thought....would a fish eye effect be possible to make it look rounded while staying flat?

Thanks for your help in advancce y2bcrazy2013-05-04 20:37:12

There's the C2 game Hamstark, which does what you want, just the other way round. I can think of a few ways to do this but none seem that practical. Perhaps @gorgonzola3000 could shed some light on how he/she accomplished this effect?GeometriX2013-05-04 21:29:01

Thanks,
I've contacted him to see how he did it.
Now it's about playing the waiting game, but if anyone has any good ideas how it's done, just post below.

Have a look at the 'rotating platform' example in the built-in examples.
