Stardrive has always been a very good real time x4 game with excellent mod support. The main issues of the game were low performance on end game and bugs.
The Blackbox project addresses these issues. And we decided also to work on and improve some of the better mods out there, created for StarDrive 1 over the years.
Combined Arms is based on Combomod (keeping the best parts in Combomod). We did a lot of balance work on Combomod and added such vast amount of new content that we decided it deserves a new name.
A short summary of the new content:
In order to install and play Combined arms you need a Vanilla copy of StarDrive 1. Once you have that installed, you need to install the alpha version of Blackbox, called Texas. This are not the mod itself, but major code refactoring and new features of StarDrive core game. Once you have the above installed, you can download the latest copy of combined Arms from Bit Bucket.
We have a new Blackbox version, aka Venus.
A new Combined arms build which was designed to work with Venus is also uploaded.
We have a dedicated wiki page for Blackbox, please make sure to read it and installation tips. You can also view what's new in Venus (and what was new in Texas).
If you encounter bugs and want to help improve Stardrive and/or Combined arms, please check the wiki instructions on how to open issues.
New release candidate build with Ship Design features (Symmetric Module placement, Bulk module replacement, undo/Redo).
