[Android & iOS] Star Nomad RTS/RPG (Sci-Fi Sandbox)

  • Alpha Gameplay Promo!

  • Take my money now.

    LOL! It will be free...

    Now thats my kind of money! haha.

    Honest advice: Put it in the app stores free with advertisements. Then launch a $1 advertisement free version.

    You will get twice the exposure. Throw in a few bonuses to the paid version though.

  • Trading UI! Dynamic prices adjust based on your sell/buys. Station & Region specific prices.

    Simply approach a station, come to a stop and touch Trade icon to initiate Dock/Trade.

    Drag & Drop trading/cargo system.

    Fill up and fly to a station where your goods fetch the best prices and profit!!

    When I was testing it, I tried to use some examples on the tutorial here with Arrays but it consumed a lot of CPU grunt so I started from scratch with my own implementation. The trade system I came up with has no Array usage, just lean mean variables.

    With the game running (all the ships flying around and AI patrols) and the trade UI being used, the game ran at 60 fps on my older tablet! o_O

  • Silverforce - Will having Pleasure Hubs prevent you from publishing to Android with Google's new updated policies?

    Also, just curious - how big are your layouts in C2?

  • Manley23

    I could remove the pink pixels.

    Each system's layout is 6400, 4320 to 1.5X bigger.

    I've learnt a lot when I first started, making Ninja Legacy run smooth on mobiles. And still I've learnt a lot more making Star Nomad so far.

  • Update 06/04/2014: Player Ships and UI

    Buying and equipping ships occur at Shipdocks, which are scattered around the sector.

    Drone ships can select to carry either combat or support drones. The drones orbits the ship in realtime and is independent in selecting targets. Support drones restore your shields.

    Also just found today a ton of real NASA images (Courtesy NASA/JPL-Caltech) and they look amazing as backgrounds for systems. I shrunk them down to 512 pixels (to reduce vram usage and filesize on mobiles) and blown it up ingame so its pixellated on bigger screens, but on mobiles it looks stunning. So it was a waste of time to actually make my own nebulas and galaxy... lesson learnt. Don't reinvent the universe when NASA supplies stunning images for you to use.

  • Could I test how it works on my android tablet? I have duo core 1.2ghz and 1gb of ram

    Not yet, still under construction. I've been testing it as I go previewing over wifi on mobile chrome browser. Performance would be similar to compiling via Crosswalk.

    So far it runs great on my old Tegra 3 tablet, as well as the older HTC One X from 2011. From my experience with my other big mobile game, Ninja Legacy (https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... lite&hl=en), it should have no troubles running on dual cores with 1gb ram, as NL ran (very smooth) on my very old HTC Incredible S which has a 1ghz dual core and 512mb of ram only.

    Interesting. I tried one off flappy bird's clones on the forum and it was running pretty terribly. Wanted to check something professional.

    Feel free to try a few of these: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deve ... dios&hl=en

    Ninja Legacy is a full blown RPG, lots of assets, stages, bosses and plenty of animations. Runs absolutely great even on old dual cores and 512mb ram devices. Firewall is a Shoot Em Up, and there's a Flappy Clone there too that works fine on every thing I've tested it on so far. Really, if you can't get a flappy clone to run on mobiles, its a user error and not C2.

    Coding for mobiles requires optimizations from the start of the development process. But certainly C2 for mobiles works great.

    Great! Will check it out. Cheers.

  • Looks pretty cool, buddy...even though i don´t like this sexual manga-stuff to be honest. That ruins the good sci-fi feeling for me

    Have you played the old Wing Commander: Privateer 1& 2? You could trade in slaves, pleasure cyborgs, playthings and all sorts of drugs. That was a long time ago too.

    Also my favorite sci-fi movie has to be Blade Runner. They have this giant electronic billboard in the sky with a geisha on it on a few scenes. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile">
