Welcome to SpaceSimCentral.com

It was a daring move to follow those weak comm signals out this far into space, but you lucked out. You have found SpaceSimCentral, a station that has been tucked away for some time at the edges of our galaxy where only the brave and adventurous travelers dare to go to seek fame and fortune. SpaceSimCentral is one of the last stops before you set off on new adventures in the vastness of deep space. We do get many travelers that tell great tales of merchandise and even things you can get for free if you know where to look. So, finish docking your ship and check-in your valuables and spend some time chatting with the locals on the station and maybe you will discover something you have been waiting a whole lifetime to find.

Enough of the intro, I'm DarkOne the Admin of SpaceSimCentral and we have been around a few years and are striving to become a great source of news, lore and a file repository for your favorite and upcoming space/scifi gaming titles. I have always tried very hard to make SSC a community where both developers and gamers can discuss what they want to see in games and developers can show off what they are working on and get honest feedback from gamers first hand. To all of the developers out there, SSC has always been very accommodating to developers in that we give them free forum space here on SSC to discuss their games with the public. There are quite a few projects going on here at SSC so you might as well join in on the fun as well.

So have fun exploring SSC, the site is going through some major changes and will probably continue to change for the coming months. But this is for the good and I look forward to peoples opinions on what they think and with any luck I can get some members to write up some articles and blogs about their favorite games so I don't have to do all the work. So checkout what SSC has to offer and do register and let us know of any new games or help us out with locating old mods/patches. Enjoy the community and see you in the forums.

Eve GunJack

03 Aug 2015

Posted by PINBACK In: EVE Online

Another VR title from CCP this time for the Samsung Gear Platform. http://community.eve...ducing-gunjack/


We are happy to announce the upcoming release of Gunjack, a VR arcade shooter for the Samsung Gear VR Platform.

Set in the EVE Universe we all know and love, the player takes on the role of a turret operator aboard a mining rig out in the nullsec region of Outer Ring. As part of the defense team, it's up to the player to protect the rig from pirates, opportunists and anyone else looking to take what rightfully belongs to the company.

Gunjack is a full-immersion first-person shooter that is built from the ground up in the Unreal 4 engine for the ultimate VR experience. Paired with the Samsung Gear VR, this allows stunning visuals, dazzling clarity and panoramic views of the action occuring in space around the player.



Don't know why but it reminds me space invader but in 3D and what is the Samsung gear platform.

#46: Mayhem (3D UI, New Environment Art, Ship Configurator)

02 Aug 2015

Posted by MawhrinSkel In: Shallow Space
The latest development video from us, not recommended if you have a heart condition, definitely recommended if you're looking for a kick!!

There's a hell of a lot of new stuff crammed into this one so expect a full debrief on the blog early next week.

Essentially though apart from the obvious Ship Configurator:

- We have the 3D improvements to the UI, spheres show ranges (Green - deep scan radius, Red - weapons radius, Yellow - status effects radius.)
- Status effects (more info) and scan ranges added.
- A new artist makes his mark with some beautiful background artwork.
- optimizations to turrets go in and fixed weapons get a rewrite - both now using completely simulated projectiles (more info.)
- All factions (all 9 of them) now represented as entities in the alpha.
- Drag selection box rewritten to allow Battlegroup formation moves and grouped Corvette wing moves.
- Enhancements to the fleet UI to support drag selection groupings.
- Game ported to Unity 5.1

Crank it up and enjoy!! (I know my hearts still racing...)

Endless Space 2

30 Jul 2015

Posted by ExpandingMan In: FPS, Strategy and Tactical Scifi Games

Didn't see a post about this on the front page yet, so I thought I'd add one.





By anecdote, I find Endless Space (the first one) to be the single most divisive 4X game ever made.  Many people seem to love it, many people seem to passionately hate it.  Ironically, Endless Legend, which is quite similar in many key ways, is almost universally acclaimed.  


I, personally, am damn excited.  To me 4X is not a genre that anybody ever gets completely right, and I have some pretty big and specific mechanics-related complaints about both the first Endless Space and Endless Legend.  Since I can say that about every 4X game I can think of, I don't mind also saying that I thought both of those games were damn good.  I'd say, and I think many would agree, that Endless Legend was one of the most unique and creative games of any strategy genre in recent years.  I can't wait to see what parts of it they incorporate into ES2.


My main hope right now is that they will GET RID OF THE DAMN STARLANES AND LET ME PUT SHIT IN DEEP SPACE OR FLY IN STRAIGHT LINES.  (That was my biggest complaint about ES1, granted some significant changes will have to accompany such a major modification of core game mechanics.)


I know a lot of people are pretty fixated on having a full blown tactical combat.  I personally find it to be too big of a digression and an annoyance more often than not, so I can do without it, and I think that even if it's included that it's absolutely necessary to have some satisfying way of abbreviating it, without sacrificing all tactical choice.  I don't really think anybody has gotten this right to date.  I will join the majority opinion and say that I didn't like the combat system in ES1, but I will also be very controversial and say that I think something similar could potentially work quite well.

Lost my mods - need help with links!

Posted by XenonS In: Freelancer

Hi, unfortunately I've initiated a formating on a disc, don't know exactly how, and pufff....All my Freelancer stuff is lost together with some other game patches, mods and notes. The disk is corrupt and won't read anymore.

Will have to make a hard disk scan on my older laptop to maybe retrieve some files but I better go play lottery...

All I have left is a Editor note in german. A sort of mod manager espcially for FL (don't recall the exact name) and necessary for some mods to run is also gone.


Thanks very much for providing me with some links to download for FL !!







FL Data Storm, I don't recall for what it is ? luckily I found the FLD20DSetup.exe 3.629 kb. Is this the installer?. == I think this one is needed for some mods.

New space combat game from the maker of Galaxy on fire http://everspace-game.com/


Not saying much about it on the site.



ROCKFISH is offering you a chance to be involved in our new project – EVERSPACE – a rogue-like PC space shooter with top-notch visuals and audio and a captivating non-linear story.


Also will be running a kickstarter soon.



Looks pretty standard from the video and not much different to what we have seen 50 times before although it may have one thing going for it if it turns out to be more a sandbox shooter than a level one.

What if... Pioneer in Space Engine

20 Jul 2015

Posted by mafkaas300 In: Pioneer

Good day to you all,


What if the Pioneer open source game was made in Space Engine...?


Just a brianfart and would like to know what others would think about it.


Basically: the universe + graphics are already in Space Engine; the basic gameplay is already in Pioneer.


Personally I would really like to see this hybrid happen because:


1) Spaceships are controlled via Newtonian physics (except the unproven 'hyperdrive')


2) Spaceships are quite realistic in design


3) Spaceships can be controlled through commands and manual control


4) Space Engine graphics are gorgeous (!) (I'm actually freaked out by travelling to close to a star/black hole (good thing))



A lot of options are possible but this hybrid (and maybe even more) are possible before I die of old age! Exploration would actuallty mean exploring the surface. Land on the surface to take a sample and scan it.


Oculus Rift/HTC Vive + this kind of spacegame = instant buy (= real life lost :P)


Let me hear your opinions/ideas/brainstorms/fantasies because who knows what'll happen....


P.S.: Don't know what pioneer is? Check this link: pioneerspacesim.net


P.P.S.: Definetly keep Space Engine music included when this magic happens

of Terrain in the Void and Status Effects

18 Jul 2015

Posted by MawhrinSkel In: Shallow Space
There's a new post up over on the blog discussing status effects and just how exactly we intend to form the maps in Shallow Space. Obviously we all know space is an unforgiving void but it makes for a very boring play area if we leave it as such, so we'll need to create areas for the Players and AI to hide and take advantage of.

But how will these areas affect the ships and combat? How can we shape the void into a meaningful area of operations? Find out in the latest article 'of Terrain in the Void and Status Effects...'


An extract from the latest post:

"To further complicate the mechanic different classes of ship will be affected differently by terrain. So a wing of Corvettes might traverse the expanse of a dense asteroid cluster far quicker than a Flotilla lead by a capital ship which has a severe penalty to movement to avoid damage. The player will be able to see the effects of a piece of terrain by hovering over the the representing icon in the macromap after they have scanned it."


Also, work has been progressing on the Ship Configuration screen. It's exciting to be able to expose more of those variables we've been relentlessly preening in the background and we're further excited by the fact that this forms another solid section of the spine of the game (and it's great fun slapping modules on those hulls!)

Head over to the gallery to check out the latest imagery.
