I?ve put together a very basic demo showing the procedural universe. You can travel anywhere in the universe. There are planets and suns in solar systems. I just wanted to get this out there.. I hope to keep posting new updates on the site and here to mark my progress...
Use WASD to move.
M to toggle the map screen.
Click on the map to set a hyperjump destination. ?J? will jump. (Make sure to set the point within the ship?s jump range).
Movement speed/rotation speed/hyperjump speed etc. will all be variable depending on the ship and the ship?s equipment.
The game is going to be able trading/battling/exploring etc. I'm going to attempt to make it online through Python (PodSixNet at this stage). The game's battle system isn't particularly real time and low ping reliant. But more on that later.
Extract both files to the same directory. Please report any bugs as its very untested. I?ll make it accommodate for more resolutions later. AFAIK it seems to work ok.
P.S thanks to arsonide's project for re-igniting my interest in making space games and pointing me in the right direction on procedural stuff. Although this has been an ongoing project of mine for the last 6 years or so - This is a brand new version started a couple of weeks ago.
