The Starmap isn't yet searchable,  but will be.  Trying to find a star cluster in there will be a mess without it.  The Marauder's special does go in all directions.   If you fly around it you will find it's a sphere of flames.  I'll post some pics of it at different angles.  I generate the points of a sphere and draw the flames off of them.

No. I don't think so.

Thanks for your support!

I have enough there for a playable demo, so I'm focusing on getting the client-server architecture so people can connect and fight each other.

Wow, this is quite something.

It feels like the cruiser handles a lot better than it used to (I imagine this is for demo purposes - you can adjust parameters later)

Also interesting on the customizability. Looks like the other cruiser there didn't have any PDL.

Some narration of what you're doing would have been nice, but you definitely showed us some things!

That it does!

I liked everything about it.  Especially the traveling between stars (when you talked about speeding it up in the video, did you actually speed the video up?).  Even that you named your ship Daedalus Tongue

It really looks nice! I hope you proceed with development to make it a full game Smiley.

I have my engine sourced from NemoKradXNA (on Youtube) who generously provided me with his source code.  His tutorials have helped me with a lot of the development.  This is what planet excusions will look like - more or less Smiley  UI improvements continue, the backend DB is solid.  You will be able to stash all your goods on the surface of any one of these planets, and go hunting for other's stuff if you want to steal something.

Hello Everyone,

This is just something I've been tinkering with since around March or so, hopefully I can develop something that you guys can play.  I've been able to locate various "fan art" for the ship models, and used some source code from UQM like the star maps, and how planetary elements are generated.

I'm off on a bit of a non-functional development tangent right now, trying to add particle effects to the earthling nuke missiles, and chmmr lasers, but after that will implement TCP/IP so that at least there is a playable part for the public to test with.  However, all those star systems in the map are navigable, there's something under 5000 unique systems in there.

Don't be too critical, this is my version of somebody building a ship in a bottle, or putting models together in their spare time.  I'm by no means a professional game developer, I'm merely learning it as I go along.

Oh yeah, the end product will be open source (as I have no choice) - I've just put other people's work together here to create the environment.

These stars are actually "twinkling"

A long time, seems like vaporware doesn't it...

Coding the planets is taking way more time than I would like.

Took the last 2 months trying to adapt for Oculus Rift, turns out I'd have to rewrite most of the engine as it requires DirectX 11, and this project merely uses DX9.
