C-Family languages are my strong point. I'm currently occupied on Outlier.

In High Albedo, you had 2 options to move between solar systems: The jumpdrive and the jumphole. The same will be true in Outlier. Jumpdrives allow for fast travel between distant systems, but consume large amounts of fuel and may damage your craft**

This is the jumphole as it appeared in High Albedo (lower right corner).


In High Albedo, the jumpholes resized themselves and you had to fly close to the center to actually jump. Now, this is the jumphole as it (currently) appears in Outlier.


It is done using a particle effect and it slowly changes shape and size as particles of various life spans are emitted. Nothing too special, but a nice effect. Like in High Albedo, you'll need to get very close to the center to actually jump. And, since it is a 3D volume of particles, it looks pretty cool flying into one.

Outlier: Open Skies

**Jumpdrives damage shields when jumping and if there are no shields left that damage is passed to the hull. In addition, it is possible (but rare) to jump inside a solid object which will ruin your day.

how did you guess lol. Unfortunately good space games seem to be generally dying out.

There is going to be a new X game, which is a franchise I like a lot. But yeah, space games (as in 'not a sci-fi shooter/sci-fi RTS') is kind of a niche I guess so it isn't profitable enough. Or something.

Space exploration games are awesome, and the space combat sims were also epic. For whatever reason, you don't see those any more. The Ace Combat series sold well, and to call that a "flight sim" is generous, so why aren't there more space combat games today?

Personally, I blame consoles for the loss of diversity in games we're seeing these days.
