EDIT: Due to an unforeseen Server Outage, a backup server can be reached with patch 1.0.19c, which also includes some weapon balancing.

Sirius Online returns in the most bombastic way possible - Online play, open PVP, close up dogfights and one hell of a fun experience. But lets star from the beginning. 6 months ago I was burnt out, overworked, exhausted. There came a phase when I thought about abandoning Sirius and everything. Yeah. ABANDONING! And for six months, development halted. There were a few less successful attempts to port it to Unity but, development on Sirius basically ceased.

It was not only until January 2015 when a random occasion forced me to rent a root-server to host another, more successful project, my main comedy site. Out of curiosity I took my LAN client on the server and tried to connect to it from home. Totally surprising: It worked. From this "epiphany" on I got back into my devcave and made a simplified server App for Sirius, ran it and created a new Client - named 1.0.15.

A lot of tests followed and a lot of balancing induced until Sirius reached 1.0.17 - the first release after 6 months. Due to great feedback I squatted bugs, balanced, added new features until I was, where I am now. 1.0.19a. Online Combat, Tradelanes, Mining, Economy. And don't fear: 1.0.20 is coming fast!


Patch 1.0.19a
Changenotes:
- Added Glow to Asteroids
- Inserted Tradelanes
- Balanced Guns
- Cheapened Repairs by a bit
- Increased Armor by 2000 Points
- Increased Shield by 1000 Points
- Ramming Damage is now calculated by speed, not asteroid size
- Added flashing shield-bubble
- Fixed several Font errors
- Added Version-Text in Highscorelist
- Added Reconnector in case of connection loss
- Told Steve to go back to Minecraft
- New Asteroid Belts
--- Elitium Belt
Most Valueable Ore In Game
Be prepared to be shot at
- Fixed Point deduction at death



Close Combat and BOOM! - Indie DB

1.1 is still a far way off, but let's see. I made a to-do list with all the feedback I receive from players, friends and testers. This list increases constantly and includes:

- Automatic Reconnect to server or message stating that you lost server connection
- Simple cargo Space, inventory and Crafting of Modules
- More Routes and custom placement of routes by crafted Materials
- Station should make sense
- Muzzle Flash
- Synching asteroid movements
- More Sounds
- Refined Meshes for Guns
- TONS of performance fixes
- Saving Progress
- Authentication with the Server
- Custom Ship Skins
- Autopatcher

and a lot of even more cool things are on my list. I plan to have at least one release per week. you are free to punch me if I don't!

As you know, Sirius is currently Free due to the Fact that I need Feedback. Probably delivered in kilotons. However, if you decide to help me out, support the game, you have two options:

There is no description of this game anywhere that I can see. You have given a name and genre, but there are no feature listings or anything. I'm sure you have something hiding somewhere, but could I suggest maybe putting it up front on the summary page? It would encourage greater interest in the game.

Excuse me for pointing this out, But the Dragonuv looks
suspiciously like the recently added Venture from the
latest expansion for Eve Online. Is this a coincidence or
intended inspiration? Obvious difference is the top
mounted guns, which do look nice. Eve Online version
in the link below so you can compare.

Yes, we admit, EVE Online is a big inspiration for us, because their designers are geniuses and their general game design is quite awesome. But to clarify things, to avoid getting a c&d from CCP hf. we reworked the Dragunov and you can see the current version in our gallery.

I love games like this! I'm curious, will there be trade? Missions?

Both. While we try to avoid all static dungeon/mission things, we came up with the idea of "Invasions", spawing a group of enemies on accepting a mission, based on the amount of players in the group. Trade and Economy will be fully in players hand, because players decide on prices and such.

Cool! That sounds like a very natural way to handle both the economy and missions.
