About Carpe Diem with 0 comments by ATRcade on Apr 14th, 2015

Carpe Diem Screen Shot Collection

Much work has gone into Carpe Diem before launching this IndieDB page. The UI in Carpe Diem features animated transitions and is largely customizable with windows that can be moved, minimized, closed and, in some cases, resized. Manage information visible in the game world via the map window, open new windows through the tool box accessed via the CD button and minimize/un-minimize those windows through the task bar featured at the top of the screen.

Carpe Diem Screen Shot Collection

In Carpe Diem your goal is to eliminate the other factions all vying for the same resources, asteroids and stars. Use cargo ships loaded with multi-purpose assemblies, MPAs, to claim new territory with the construction of space stations. Use those space stations to construct military craft to defend your territory or take territory from your enemies.

Carpe Diem Screen Shot Collection

Construct cargo ships and load them with MPAs to support your fleet and expand your borders. A fully loaded cargo ship can be used to construct a new space station anywhere on the map outside already claimed territory. Conversely you may choose to use your MPAs to repair damaged craft, MPAs can be loaded onto damaged craft via a space station or cargo ship.

Carpe Diem Screen Shot Collection

There are four combat vessels in Carpe Diem. Use the more powerful Gaumond, Thananos and Aurora Class Battleship to take the fight to your enemies and escort your armada with Nighthawks to protect against enemy defense fleets.

I wonder if this game engine can do something similar to CryEngine 2 or 3, in example, talking about the generated environments. It would be great to make an scenary in both engines and compare the results. I'm learning to use this engine (jME 3) because I have some ideas I would like to materialize, and I know Java enough to start with it, but I have no experience in Game development; that's why I would like to know if this engine can generate realistic environments as CryEngine (2 or 3), or if there are some limitations (about performance or something else) for that (excluding of course the quality of textures and models).

It really comes down to the quality of your models and your scene composition skill. Nothing performance wise is gonna stop you from making a scene in jME3 that's as good looking a what you see in a CryEngine game, but those scenes usually took several thousand expert man hours to put together.

This engine is the best thing for java game creation.
but still its a bit buggy and the SDK's gui is super slow and buggy.
so I'm using direct LWJGL.

Did you try the RC1 release yet? There's been some major improvements in the SDK, including a big performance boost.

A very short learning curve, stability, cross-plattform and a good performance made the engine my choice.

Not to forget that the community is very active and nearly every question gets a good answer.

I'm excited what they will do next.

Thanks! As for the "next up", the most prevalent milestones would be further improved Android support as well as finally going Stable.

Along with that, we'll be doing a lot of cool new publicity stuff now that I'm done with my education :D

Developer of 3079 here -- My game wouldn't have existed if it wasn't for this engine. This engine has done so many great things for me, and knowing it is purely Java based allows it to be completely cross-platform without any extra work. Did I mention it is free? These guys deserve tons of credit. This engine is fast and full of features. It also includes a complete Software Development Kit with terrain editors and all sorts of gizmos. Highly recommend this!
