Update 0.136

Update 0.136

An update has been released released with a fair few bug fixes that were spotted with the influx of players from the IndieGameStand sale that has now ended. Halos and chat Badges have also been added for the respective players who deserved them. Check out the change log below for more detail. As usual you can download the update via the launcher.

The server update can be found at:

Changelog 0.136


  • Added option to server settings which can be set to “true” or “false”. Setting it to true will mean chunk and ship files are loaded up into memory on startup making reading very quick. This is useful for VPS’s and any kind of machine running the game server with slow read/write harddrives or high file i/o wait time(VPS’s have very bad i/o wait in most cases). However this has a memory impact. VFS is set as false by default (previously was always on). If your server has an SSD you can benefit from setting it to false allowing the file to be loaded from the harddrive instead significantly reducing memory use on large maps..
  • Added option to server settings which can be set to “true” or “false”. Setting this to true will mean all chunks and ships are loaded up at server startup and are not unloaded. Do not do this on large maps. This is best set to true on Team deathmatch style servers where you have a small map and want to remove any extra computation such as loading/unloading chunks. This allows for a very smooth experience.
  • Added Halos to the top 5 contributors.
  • Added chat badges for Koto, Sen, HumanCant Think, Kattehus, and Indie.
  • Changed server to space out chunk unloading to prevent occasional stutters.
  • Various improvements to server performance based on larger amount of players.
  • Added altitude(Y) to coordinates and put each coordinate on a new line due to decimal points of non-English speaking countries being confusing(where ‘,’ is a decimal point).
  • Added weight of ship to UI next to ship energy.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed a bug where particle effects from thrusters would be left over in some cases after a ship had left the area or been destroyed.
  • Fixed a bug where particles would stop working in some cases.
  • Fixed a bug where rebinding the Nation window key would open the Nation window over the top of the Keybindings menu leaving you stuck.
  • Fixed a bug where the server wouldn’t delete some new chunks when all their blocks were gone in some cases and they’d reload after server restart.
  • Fixed a memory leak on the server.
  • Fixed ammo missing on player ui on chunk load in.
  • Fixed item scrolling missing sixth slot in item bar.
  • Fixed invisible players.

Due to the type of game it is it's not really possible to provide a cut down version of the game for trials.

That would be impossible. There is only 1 person making this if i am not mistaken. Since the game is in alpha stage now, the price is 5.99 and it WILL increase as it move from Alpha to Beta. This is a great game and the features are great too!

You can download the latest version from if you're having trouble with Desura's version. Just download it, extract it and you're good. It does not need to be in the Desura directory or anything like that. Just run the game from the folder it extracts too.

Congratulations, you made me join Desura ! xD
So yeah, i was also wondering if it was close to minecraft, and your answers to Wiizel1337 convinced me :)
As soon as i have some time and money to spare, i'll be sure to take a look :D
A few questions though ...
How will the servers works ? Meaning, will there be a big server hosting everything, or, like in minecraft, anyone can download and host his server, to play with his friends ?
Will there be other weapons ? I know the whole game is based on ship actions, but ... Two ships colliding, and fighting on both to sabotage it, etc ... would be fun.
Will there be, like hp points for ships? I mean, how do you know when you defeated the other ship ?

You probably already answered all these somewhere, but i only saw the video ^^'
Anyway, sounds promising :)
Great job ! :D

There is a official server, to make sure theres always somewhere to play. But players can download and host their own server. The server can be set to private so it does not appear in the server list so you can play with your friends. There will be other weapons both for players and different kinds of weapons for ships.

Ships have a central weak point called an Energy Well. It is in the middle of your ship and it's best to build around it to keep it protected. You can destroy a ship completely by destroying it. However you can also disable ships by destroying it's thrusters or power sources so it can no longer move or fight back. Damage is done to the ship per block i.e. A cannon ball hit damages the blocks in the wall it hits. Block damage is persistant and can be repaired with tools. Depending on your intentions you know you've won when you've disabled or totally destroyed your targets ship. Or the players have surrendered.

Hope that answered your questions!

Great game that shows amazing promise! In alpha at the moment and you can tell there are great things in the future for it. The creator of the game seems to be very active on the official server and the community is very friendly. Some may see this as a minecraft clone, but it surely is not. Sky Nations takes two things I always wished minecraft had, airships and floating islands, and specializes the hell out of them, while managing to reinvent many things that minecraft made popular. If you are…
