What is Sirius all about? Its a Game. Seriously. Think about Freelancer. Now add the third dimension into the content. Speed it up. And add cool fluff like Scanning for Belts, deep space exploration and possibly even more. Started as an ambitious project in 2005, with a lot of drawbacks we finally got Multiplayer working in mid June 2014. Shoot, Mine, Explore and Manage the galaxy - coming soon.

Report article RSS Feed July-Update 2013. Beta V is here!

The Beta 5 download, new and old features and great news!

Posted by vektorDex on Jul 21st, 2013

Heya, a good Sunday or weeks start, depending on when you see this. We return with a MASSIVE update on our progress so far.

UPDATE: 1.30 Link put in!

The 3rd-Person view is finished to 90%, just the lensflares on the sun are missing as of yet. A lot of stuff can now be migrated over seamlessly with little to no work. The new view also gave us a massive performance increase we used to increase the awesome FX.

If you want to support us, you can download the newest demo via adf.ly instead:

Dropbox.com

(wait 5 seconds and click skip ad on top right)

After evaluating on the quite hardware-eating Dot3-Mapping, we reverted this decision, but added a dreamBlur, which you can see in the new Demo. The new patcher is now close to release.

  • dreamBlur
  • 3rd Person
  • Zooming and Turret view
  • Seamless Jumping
  • greatly reduced texture size

You can support our game now vie GoFundMe!

pretty cool, the flying looks smooth. and the ship has the big satelite dish, so I guess it receives at least 250 TV stations ^^

Not actually. Its a lot about flying and smoothing out the control experience... It was a hard time for us to bring the camera to 3rd person and migrate most functions.
Its to demonstrate new ingame graphics and engine performance increase.

Not really. We want to stick close to the Freelancer-Baseline and add many of the good things from X³ and EVE and give it our own spin.
