Naev 0.6.0 Released

News 1 comment

The Naev development team is proud to announce the release of Naev 0.6.0, our first stable release in nearly three years.

This release features over 1600 commits from some 38 contributors, as well as small fixes from many more. Its main features are the core slots system, which allows ships to be more heavily customized, as well as full SDL2 support, which greatly improves Naev's fullscreen behaviour among other things.

Download: Sourceforge.net
Blog: Blog.naev.org
Forums: Forum.naev.org

Changes since 0.5.3:


Features:

  • Core slots system
    • Ships must have a core system, engine, and hull equipped to take off
    • Ships' attributes are mostly defined by their cores
    • Total of 95 core outfits

  • Greatly improved SDL2 support (now default)
    • Support for window resizing and toggling fullscreen without restarting
    • Drag-and-drop ndata loading when ndata can't be found

Is this game based off Flash Trek: Broken Mirror? Even if it is, one hell of a game :3

This game is based on the Escape Velocity series from AmbrosiaSW.
Hence the name NAEV, meaning Not Another Escape Velocity.
I played the first EV about 16 years ago and it was addicting as hell.
Played the others too and it's so addictive.
This game is pretty much the same even has a bit more.
I really recommend trying this out.

Near as I can tell, the system it self could be modded... It is open source after all. Why not try to make it yourself?
