Post news RSS Spacewrights Demo V05 Released – Let the Modding Begin!

Version 05 of the demo has been released and is ready to download. This is a special update, it adds a new feature: modding. Add your own custom ships, systems, alien races, consoles, and enemies to fight.

With this new demo version you can now dig around in the mods/ folder to see what mods can do and what they can add or tweak within the Spacewrights demo. The Kickstarter has slowed so we are hoping that by adding features that are requested like this we can get it back on track.

So if you want to try this new version go get it now.

Modding is not as simple as playing the game. You'll have to get your hands dirty and edit text files. The full details are ready to read here, and there’s a brand new Mods section of the official forums for everyone to share their mods and support. We encourage everyone to share their mods wherever appropriate to help spread the word of Spacewrights to get the Kickstarter funded. Furthermore we hope that by showing this rapid support of taking user feedback and implementing it quickly we can build a bigger and more trusting fanbase.

Changelog – The modding update:

  • Fans can now mod this Spacewrights demo!
  • Check out the website for more details, or dig around in the mods/ folder
  • Tile damage is no longer visible as it doesn't do anything [yet]
  • A bunch of smaller bugs fixed as well

We hope a new modding community sprouts up and enjoys modding Spacewrights as much as we do building it. And we are always open to requests for game mechanics to expose for modding, so don't be afraid to ask.
