On arrival back to our own solar system, you find Earth has been colonized by a hostile alien force. It's now up to you, with the help of your mothership, the Ensign-1, to take it back Ensign-1 allows allows for complete freedom in approaching objectives. You can fight from the safety of your spacecraft, or land and exit to explore space stations and carriers on foot. You can commandeer any spacecraft in the game, no matter how big or how small. Defend an asteroid base, or take the fight to the enemy with a huge mothership, friends manning turrets, it's your choice.

Report article RSS Feed Public Server and Dark Worlds

Ensign-1 has a few small updates to announce, including a public test server, and new worlds with eclipsed suns.

Posted by onionman on Oct 6th, 2012

Hello guys,

The multiplayer server has recieved a few updates, in addition to numerous amounts of bug fixes, the server will also occasionally spawn levels where the sun is not visible, requiring players to turn on their lights to see in the dark.

Eclipse Level

Asteroids are better randomized, and the server will now also remember ship positions when you log off, so that things should be as they were when you log back in.


To celebrate all this, and the server being more stable, I've put up a public server people can log into, though be warned it's still in alpha!

                                                         71.90.29.29 (v0.270) (down for maintenance)

More servers available at Spacesimcentral.com

In addition, a much asked for feature will now make it into the game, the inclusion for mouse inversion support.

Deep Purple Something

Last but not least, a lot of the groundwork has been laid down on getting multiple gravity well into the game that player will be able to warp between. These wells will be of varying difficulty, and there will be some that you just won't be able to take on without the help of the Ensign or a few friends. So stay tuned, the best is still to come!

Is it possible that the server is not available anymore?
