Title: Star Control: Stardock Fall Preview
Post by: Frogboy on October 15, 2016, 10:41:23 pm
Greetings!

I wanted to give you guys a head's up that on Tuesday (1pm EST) of this week we will be opening up the Founder's program to get access to the upcoming beta of the new Star Control game.

We are also re-designing the StarControl.com website this week to coincide with the update which will include pages for Star Control 1/2 and 3.

We would be happy to also provide links to the Ur-Quan Masters download if you would like as well as post any fan art or other assets under the Star Control: Ur-Quan community page we're working on.

If you have any questions, let me know.

Thanks!

Looks nice overall, but the planet view seems very wrong somehow - the scale of things is off. The screenshot showing Alpha Centauri II kinda looks like we're seeing a small asteroid - either that, or the planet has mountain ranges even taller than Olympus Mons.

Looks amazing!  I'm excited for it.

For the Alpha Centauri II, just looked like a mountainous planet to me (admittedly, yeah, exaggerated).

This is probably the most exciting news we've had in a long time and it only warranted 2 replys?

This community has been dormant for some time, time to WAKE UP GUYS!

There's a new Star Control coming!

I have pre-ordered.

I read it, but I'm not sure what I should say about it?

It seems to pertain to founders. Or does it mean that it's no longer just founders? If it's not just founders, that's nice.

What OS-es does it work on?

Seeing as how Stardock has never developed for a platform outside of Windows... Well, there you go.

I should say as far as I know.

Then I wonder if it'll be WINE-able.

It should be good. The few games that I've played look like they have decent ratings on WineHQ.

Just got some serious answers, Apparently it will run on Windows 10 due to the directx 11 that is required for the engine to run. :)

So does that mean it won't run on Windows 7?

Direct X11 has been published and introduced for Windows 7, so it should be running on Win7 too.
Heck, even my Vista system has Direct X11 installed. Not that I use it, but it is there.

I recently had to downgrade from windows 10 to windows 8 because my computer can't seem to handle it (complicated issues). DirectX11 was working great on windows 10 but not so much since i downgraded. Is it because i downgraded or does it just not work on windows 8? At this rate i'll just buy a new laptop

X11 should work on Win8. Some issues may be because of the downgrade.
Unsinstall and then re-install X11 Windows 8 version to test would be my advice. Some leftovers if win10 X11 may have remained on the system and are now efff'in up your system.
