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.
This release adds in the confederacy side at the moment the have about the same amount of ships. Their ships are much weaker and shorter ranged but are cheap and build super fast. In large numbers they can overwhelm hegemony ships.
