The Sun-T[ransporter] has been built as UE's first Space Ship!

Posted by on

Hello Everyone! The first space ship has been made, though there's still no equipments yet inside.


The video is short, it is just a small demonstration on how flexible can it be to design your ships!

On the following days, I'll be focusing on Thrusters and a bunch more equipments that comes with it, such as Levers to adjust the power of Thrusters, various monitors for navigating and a new list of weapons!

- Equipment : Weapon Holder : Quadra
- Weapon Component :
-- Handler : Quad
-- Handler : Hydra
-- Handler : Solitude
-- Rotator : Horizontal
-- Rotator : Vertical
-- Turret : Barrel : Microwave
-- Turret : Projectile : Torpedo
-- Turret : Projectile : Missile

Stay tune! dont forget to watch the game :)

this is an interesting idea - i have always wanted a game where you have coop mode ships where the crew actually do stuff. This would be good if you could interact with other ships in the universe - fight or trade etc. Do you need team members at all - texture artists? designers?

Hello cheesemcboots! :)

There will be other interaction with ships, they're crewed by AIs. This is a single player game, so all interaction is AI. but! AI will be very deep and rich. I'll try my best so you wouldn't get the AI-ish feeling when interacting :)

As for in-game locations, it is Player/Community built. If you choose to play connected to a Universe Server, as you travel, the game will check if there are structures, landmarks, spacestation in your position that was made by another player and will load it. Though there will be no direct interaction with other player planned yet.

I'll be getting the textures in games with the help of CGTexture,since the look of your ship is really your choice, the colors. Only the given texture are there. but Texture modding will be allowed of course :)

Have you ever thought about a multiplayer coop? I think it could be very interesting and challenging! :)

chances of Multiplayer is currently very slim to none. Im only a single developer at the moment, and i dont want to make big promises yet.

But when the game is out public and managed some funding, there might be way of multiplayer but to minimal extent. due to current technology, Players interchanging infos about their ships, crews, and guns is a bit heavy.

One possible way of multiplayer is let's say 4 to 8 players piloting a single Ship. or a team match of 4 vs 4 and one ship per team. This is only a possibility!! :D not a planned feature ,YET! :D

Here's an idea, when a laser destroys part of a ship, make it regenerate slowly... that way players who survive a battle wont have to be constantly putting pieces back together.

HAve you guys seen Blockade Runner? It's basically aiming for the same sort of game. They do have multiplayer planned and seem to be a bit further in dev, however I do like the designs in your game - the diagonal blocks work really well.

Just wondering, did pre-alpha come out yet? I feel like I'm missing out on something...
