Hello good folks,


Today we bring you another AOTF Dev diary. We wanted to give you a quick update about what we've been up to in the last month. So what are we going to talk about today?

We'll be showing you some new gravity wells and anomalies we've added and talk about some of our future additions we're going to make. We'll show you some work in progress shots of models and finaly some more livestream news.


"The Singularity engine!"


So this week we've been hard at work on polishing the UI and putting the finishing touches on it. If you follow our livestreams on Youtube you will have seen Hobbs slave away at making sure every little elements works propperly and looks brand spanking new.

Hobbs has done some amazing work on getting the new Artifact screen and artifacts in game, you'll find quite a few easter eggs in there!

THE SINGULARITY ENGINE



"Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence"


Space is a vast and empty expanse, filled with amazing wonders and terrible dangers and in this mod we dont want to be any different. We've been working hard on getting some nice and...less nice anomalies added to the game. From gentle floating comets to dangerous stars and unexplained spatial phenomena.

Some of the things we've added are a direct copy from episodes of star trek and some are more grounded in reality. Here are some sneak previews by our developers!

In unrelated news...


Max, the Loef himself, has recently run into some problems and is in need of some community support. Some unfortunate technicalities with the tax office have left him over 2,500 euros out of pocket, money that he, as a single young man early in his career, simply doesn't have laying around. As a last resort, Max has set up a GoFundMe to help ease the strain, if anyone feels like helping him out.

We'd like to thank anyone who chooses to donate for their generosity, but we'd also like to make a couple of things clear.

First, if you choose to do so, please consider your own finances before donating. You are under no pressure to donate so please only do so if you can do so comfortably. Again, thank you so much to everyone who chooses to donate.

Second, Max's GoFundMe is in no way connected to our mod work, and will not have any impact on Ages of the Federation. All donations will go entirely towards helping Max's personal situation.

Stellar Parallax is a strictly non-profit team - our mods are and will continue to be entirely free. We do not and will not accept any donations or funding of any kind, for any reason.

Thanks, all. We'll catch you next time. ;)

A strangely non-positive and serious update today, with recent events demanding an explanation.

I have some 2-D and 3-D skills, I have photo shop illustrator, and I can use Maya 2017 pretty well. Work keeps me pretty busy but on the weekends if you would like assistance I would love to help (like maybe make you some new ship icons? I have some ideas that might help make the different ships stand out a little bit)... but over all love your work please let me know if I can be of assistance.

That's actually looking increasingly unlikely, sadly. Considering how much there is still to do and how little time is left in the year. We're working hard but the most likely timeframe will be early in the new year.

We're aiming for at least a beta release by the end of the year, so not long now.

Nothing's set in stone yet. It could be early in the new year. We'll announce a release date when we're comfortable we can make that date.
