Earn your way to a better life by trading goods, fighting pirates, or exploring unknown worlds. Buy new space ships to customize as you see fit with with various weapons, shields, engines, equipment and software.

PewPew Alpha 9

News

Alpha 9 (v1.0.5338) of PewPew has been released!

What's new? Not a whole terribly lot. I've fixed some backend physics calculations that turned out to be incorrect, and in doing so, ended up having to rebalance every ship and a lot of the equipment modules. Most of the work since the last release has been spent doing this. As a result, ships may now behave slightly different than before. Balancing is an ongoing process though, so expect this to change in the future.

As for more noticable changes, the trade goods exchange now has fluctuating prices. Prices also vary based on the system imports and exports. This allows players to do actual trading of goods as a source of income now, which previously was not possible. To find good trade routes, use the star system information screen to view what exports a system has, and find another system with matching imports. On top of that the exchange now utilizes a slider for transferring goods, which makes it a lot easier to transfer large amounts of goods. The UI still requires a lot of work here, but the functionality is starting to come together.

Missile racks have also been separates out from normal weapons and now require their own slots to be installed on ships. This is an experiment I'm trying to be able to balance ships better. It was hard to define ships in classes with only weapon slots. Now ships can have a single weapon slot, but multiple missile slots, which results in a less powerful ship than if you had three weapon slots. But still advantageous over a ship with no missile slots.

Please consult the download page for a full change log.
