A lot of heavy duty coding work has been completed, colonizing, trade lanes etc.
Highly paranoid and xenophobic especially against psychic types.
Some harsh planet surface and planet details WIP. Also thats not snow on the mountains, its sulfur :P.
Also a lot of coding was done on colony systems and ship design... hence the long update time.
YO! Yup long time no see. Welcome back :P.
NB, this is very old and dead indiegogo campaign. A new attempt is incoming.
WIP of the all important warp.
Some progress on leader creation and character functionality, essentially the first real update including work on the rpg aspect.
The main leader is meant to be the player character basically. You can die :P, but can be replaced by successor.
Also you can choose the starting class, which is very important, either a governor, scientist or fleet commander. Fleet commander is the most dangerous though, since you will be sending your leader out to battle to really benefit from it. Just a warning :P.
Raw work in progress video 1. Some notable things are that resources are counted by mega tonnes on each planet, some can actually run out if you keep mining it. However you can trade and keep mining new planets in procedural galaxy.
AI are now getting some heavy coding done on them. This includes randomly spawning raiders, events etc.
Finally an update, much more work on core game elements, specifically colonies, planets, economy and star clusters. Also other updates will come more frequently now since some essentials are now done.
Some more WIP of solar systems. New Orbit and UI additions, and also moons that you can colonize. There can be multiple moons per planet.
Work has mainly been on colony systems, saving and loading and planet surface stuff.
Even though the first attempt at crowdfunding failed, I have not given up, some big progress is coming.
Tier 1 transport ship for independent Human factions.
Some progress on characters(and species), their portraits are now lit...as in there is a light on them with shading. That is also why some of them are kinda dark. Some species like to dim the lights :P.
Lights are dynamic though, so are the backgrounds, so sometimes they will be brighter, darker etc.
Carcharon are another warrior of large bipedal reptiles. They are extremely dangerous and unpredictable but have neutral alignment, so most of the time you should be able to get along with them. Don't take any chances though.
They are also very lazy and like to lie around in warm areas doing nothing.
Mikonians are a large powerful mammalian species. Extremely arrogant and proud, but generally good at heart(even though they don't look it). They are a warrior race, and will fight you till their last breath.
Resources...well, what else is there to say? :p
Oh, some species use minerals and or manufactured resources as food.
Arguably the mostly advanced species. They are essentially what humans call the Greys.
Some species control others from the get go or are really closely related, thats why even though some look really different they are in the same grouping.
Some really early and quick species concepts :P.
Archonyx are really mean, stay away from them.
Sirius Rebels are a playable minor faction. They feature in the Indiegogo video.
Ships don't come in normal classes like most 4x. There will be multiple designs per faction for the same class like the frigate, which you can then modify and change to its specific limits.
Remember some planets and solar systems are pre-made and part of the lore. So Humanity will always start on Earth and so on.
NB, a lot of other things like alignment, abilities etc are still be put on the cards. Hence the empty spaces :P.
Please help me out, I cannot upload my videos. It says I already have here: Indiedb.com
I have apparently soft deleted it. Can you perma delete pls?
