Steampunk wars is a brand new concept using the revolutionary spring engine. The spring engine allows for more realistic physics then some AAA rts engines. Ships will be arranged in classes: fighter, tiltrotorcraft, corvette, frigate, destroyer, cruiser, battlecruiser, carrier, battleship, mothership and superbattle ship. When complete the two sides; Hegemony and Confederacy will have about 15 ships each. The hegemony will focus on haveing limited numbers of powerful high technology ships while the confederacy will focus on high numbers of lowertech ships and carrier support. The game is being designed with community moding in mind. Additional content will be easy to add by modders. For now the focus is on multiplayer and skirmish but in the future single player storymode will be added.
The newest version of steampunk wars adds 3 new units. The f24 super-raptor, eagle class frigate and identity class missile-cruiser. Also the assault corvette has an auto-cannon turret add and the heavy-cruiser has two turreted railguns. The game is now more strategic and the cruiser yard's energy production is reduced so the generators are actually useful now
