Gimbal EXPANSION ONE Header Graphic - May 2003 - RACE - DEATHMATCH - CTF - PARTS

It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of Gimbal Expansion One ! It has taken many months of Beta testing and development, but Expansion One is now here. Thank you, Beta Testers!

This is the largest release of Gimbal features since Gimbal's original launch in August 2012. Expansion One has new game modes, weapons, and features which work together to bring Gimbal in line with my original vision.

It's a free update to Gimbal, so all you have to do is launch Desura and let the automatic updater do its thing.

IF YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS LAUNCHING GIMBAL PLEASE READ THIS!

It seems people are having issues launching Gimbal, over on the forums they found a fix:

You have to craft a 'Franken-Gimbal' by installing the Demo from the Gimbal homepage (be sure to install the net frameworks and directx updates included) then copy the files across to >C: >Desura >Common >gimbal
don't overwrite anything.
Worked for me and the few other people over in the forums, hope it does for you! enjoy the game :)

Hey, this looks really great! (Gonna buy it :D)

But a few questions about the game:
Will there only be the current gamemode? I'd like to see some more strategic and lengthy gamemodes, maybe even a persistent world :o
And mod support? I realise this is hard with a multiplayer game, but if you could script things like in Bukkit (Minecraft Server with plugin API), or such to create your own gamemodes.

-Thanks,
Vegard

tried the demo and i love it :)
hope more people will play this in the future!
btw are there plans for different game modes? would be nice to have something like space stations on the map which are conquerable, providing you with a forward base to repair und reammo your ship or maybe stations that grant the team more firepower or armor so there will be battles around these key structures

Fantastic game with amazing depth due to extremely customizable craft and a great leveling system. Physics and FX are also top notch. Great community - see if the ship you build can conquer the online community

Must Buy!
