StarDrive is a 4X Action-Strategy game where the goal is to build a space empire. Starting with a single planet and a small number of space-worthy vessels, you forge out into the galaxy, exploring new worlds, building new colonies, and discovering the StarDrive universe. The heart of StarDrive is its ship design and combat engine. StarDrive takes a module-based approach to ship design, allowing the player to create custom ship designs where the composition and placement of ship modules really matters to the performance of a ship in combat. In combat, if your portside armor is taking a beating, then rotate around and show them the starboard side! Hide behind a friendly capital ship's shields, warp into and out of the fray, launch fighters, lay mines, and so much more.
We have been cleaning up and fixing a lot of code here.
There is still a lot of work to do and the really cool stuff is still not touched yet.
We have added a lot to the ship yard. Ease of use. information. Functionality. Mod ability.
the main menu scene in the video above is customizable via a YAML file. Location of buttons. graphic effects. textures and even those ships warping in can be customized while the game is running by modifying the main menu yaml.
Some of the features of texas that have been refined and cleaned up in Venus are here:
Texas Whats New
Some Shipyard changes in Texas.
For venus we have begun cleaning up and adding to the UI. We did a lot under the hood here that you will never see but the effects of that work allows us to add some new things to venus.
Venus Whats New
Colony Screen Changes in venus
In texas we did so much to the damage visuals. One of the new coders, Fat Bastard, Got the idea that the ship damage visuals could be enhanced and we went to town on that.
So as we continue to improve the readability and structure of what we have to work with we begin to get the diamond out of the rough.
Some hurdles that still cause some pain...
XNA and Sunburn. This is graphic engine core of stardrive and niether of which are still supported. More over SunBurn online is nearly entirely gone and... it has bugs.
We are trying hard to overcome these issue but they are difficult. Currently windows 7 tends to run stardrive and black box better than win10. we are hoping we can at least create a workaround.
