Pytheas is a galactic exploration, vehicle based, construction game. It has been in development since December 2010. A fleet from Earth's Exploratory Force has gone missing; you are sent to find it. After finding the aptly named ship, Pytheas, you could return to earth, report the find, and let a collection of search and rescue efforts do the rest. However, realizing that is boring, you decide to scour the nearby star systems with your brand new, eerily empty inter-stellar mammoth. Pytheas gives players the tools to execute thier ideas without the limitations of a game engine designed with a different purpose in mind. Barriers that limit how you can play are removed to allow for more freedom.

If the initial launch meets enough support, future Mac compatibility is planned. All the chosen libraries are cross-platform compatible for Windows, Linux and Mac. I just need to go through and create the supporting OS code and change some of the filesystem usage per platform.

Description

This video gives a brief overview of the most basic construction method available in the new DyVox Sandbox Engine / Pytheas. This feature was inspired by player feedback during the Pytheas prototype release. More advanced methods and features will become available once they are cleaned-up, networked and user-friendly.

I hope you enjoy the video!
