Celestial Impact is a team based multiplayer first person shooter (FPS) for PC taking place on various asteroids floating in space. Celestial Impact differs from other multiplayer FPS in that the whole landscape is destructible in any direction, each impact on the landscape affecting it differently depending on the weapon used. But it is not limited to destruction; the players will also have the ability to add terrain to the landscape in the middle of combat using a special tool. So as the teams are battling, the landscape receives vast changes opening up for various tactical approaches each team can use.

Each landscape (map) is a sphere-like asteroid with gravity pointing towards the center of the asteroid. This means that players can take round trips around the asteroid assaulting the enemy from any direction. Since the landscape is fully destructible, players could even approach from underneath by digging tunnels through the asteroid.

Apart from the regular weapon arsenal (a melee weapon, a minigun, a shotgun, a grenade launcher and a high-energy precision weapon) each player is equipped with the ‘Dirt Gun’. This gun has two modes. The first is the dig-mode. When using dig-mode the ‘Dirt Gun’ removes large chunks of terrain from the landscape in front of the player making it excellent for digging tunnels or breaking barriers. The second mode is the build-mode. When using build-mode the ‘Dirt Gun’ adds terrain in front of the player.

Ran in to a wall that is too high to jump over? No problem, just build a slope and walk over the wall, or maybe dig a path going under it.
Need a breather from intense combat? No sweat, dig a cave and go hide inside.
Build and dig your way around the landscape in various strategic ways as you seek out and kill your opponents.

1 comment by Dracus on Jun 6th, 2008

This patch should solve the problems some people had with not beeing able to see or connect to any server. While this patch is not needed to still be able to play Celestial Impact online, it is recommended that everyone download it since it also contains some other bug fixes. A full changelog is included with the game.

The patch also brings a few gameplay changes:

  • Grengun has bigger explosion radius and slightly higher damage.
  • Grengun fire delay is higher.
  • Hitting someone with the railgun now requires slightly more precision than before.
  • Players drop their current weapon when killed.

These changes will be in effect for all players on a 1.10b server, even for those still using 1.10.

Get the new version here as a patch or full version. Please report any problems or suggestions on our forum.

I was very surprised that despite the games meager graphics (no offense), the actual requirements for a smooth game were staggering. My PC which is fully capable of running games such as the Orange Box, ground to a halt while trying to play this game. Where is all of that extra Cpu load coming from? I think it would be incredibly helpful if you guys posted a min requirements and a recommended requirements as well as a warning about how much of a cpu hog the game is.

Otherwise, the game looked good enough for me to try, but the videos and screenshots were very decieving about its requirements.

The requirements can be seen if you expand the info about the file. It is also available on our download page on our website. To be seen without extra clicks for you we need to put it in the summary and I don't think it fits there.

The high requirements (and bad graphics) can be explained by mainly three factors. For one the content isn't the best even though the engine supports (and we use) many modern techniques for nice results. The second is that as we have a deforming world we can't use regular solutions other engines use to optimize the performance. Last we have only one programmer coding everything so the time to optimize the engine are not as in commercial engines.

Hope you enjoy the game!

My computer monitor has a 1440 by 900 resolution. I noticed that the game doesn't have that resolution as an option in system settings. I tried fixing that by right clicking on the shortcut and selecting "properties" and then typing in "-ResX=1440 -ResY=900" after the target. This fixes that for most of my games, but it didn't work this time. How can I get this game to work on that resolution?

Use the r_width and r_height commands in the console to specify custom size.

I found this game to be quite fun, although i enjoyed the sandboxing more than the actual deathmatch

Most people seem to do that in the beginning, but once they learn how to take full advantage of the dirtgun during combat they enjoy it alot more.

I think you'd more enjoy playing CC with a couple of players on each team than just a plain deathmatch. In CC your actions have greater strategic impact and the dirtgun can create quite some funny situations.
