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.

InfiniExplorers

13 Sep 2014

Hi Spacesimcentral community!

 

My name is David and I'm developping an Indie game called InfiniExplorers

 

InfiniExplores is a 3D space-sandbox game, made for space exploration, science fiction, resource management and action fans. In this game you can build your colony or spaceship, explore the galaxy, fight against other enemy factions, commerce and more...
 
When you start the game you choose a planet to start from the hundreds out there in the galaxy map. Once on the planet you have to extract resources to begin building a colony that provides you with the items to survive like food and others. If the colony is secure, you can start building your spaceship to go to other planets to extract unique resources that you need to develop new technologies, or you can also use your spaceship to attack pirates, or trade with friendly factions or discover buried secrets.

you can see all the album here:
 
 
 
I've just submitted InfiniExplorers to Steam Greenlight. The idea is to be able to put InfiniExplorers on Steam Store. Like I said in other comments I think the game is in a point where it needs some profeesional work, for example in 3d and 2d. To be in Steam is a great bridge in order to get funds and hire some good proffesionals.
 
 
Also I setup a crowdfunding campaing.
 
 
If you can help I will appreciate it.
Thank you for your help, and good luck for all the devs, all of you are doing great works, I wish all of them will reach their dreams.
 
David

Getting it Together

13 Sep 2014

Posted by MawhrinSkel In: Shallow Space

Having had a bit of a two week tidy-up of the code and some pretty successful optimisation, I start adding new stuff working on spawning ships from jumppoints and stations and working on the placeholder shield and hull damage and ship destruction effects. We can expect plenty more fine details in the end, Alex wants to see hull fires and supporting explosions and has already demo'd some stuff to me as he works on an effects palette, I look forward to chucking it into the pot. In the meantime the basics of the sector prototype are well under-way which you can see in the latest vid and we get closer to something playable.
 


 

We really start to get it together as a team as responsibilities are dished out and I start getting realistic expectations of the cost of taking this project to the next level. We also have a 3D modeller join the team and someone else to help assist with the administrative burden of project management and the upcoming Kickstarter, more on that over on the latest IndieDB article which fired us into the Top 100, more cool GIFs and stuff to view too in  Infectious Vibes.

 

dddd9.gif

 

Over on the blog I start to elude to the bigger picture where I talk about the latest additions to the prototype and start musing about the wider mechanics in play and hinting at a grand campaign, read up more in Incoming Singularity and 'The Gift' is also brought to a dramatic conclusions and is wrapped into a handy downloadable PDF available over on the blog post The Gift VI.

 

Cheers from the team!

Star Trek Alien Domain

11 Sep 2014

Posted by PINBACK In: Mobile and Web Gaming

New Star Trek game on the way, bad news is it looks like a browser base game and according to IncGamers http://www.incgamers...strategy-action it will take place in Fluidic space which means it will be set in the TV universe rather than the reboot movie version.

 

 

The game is focused around the exploration of “Fluidic Space”, which Trek fans will know all about from the Voyager series, and players will be tasked with managing their resources, establish colonies, and iconic ships from the series are also included.  We do know there will be Constitution-class and Defiant-class starships for the Federation, and D7 Battle Cruisers and Bird-of-Prey for the Klingon Empire.

Outlier: Open Skies

08 Sep 2014

Posted by masternerdguy In: Free Indie and Open Source Gaming Projects

Hello everyone!
 
I'm new here but I wanted to share a project I've been working on for some time. Some of you might know me as the author of High Albedo: Twisted Skies which was the 2D prototype for this game.
 
Outlier is a 3D space combat and trading simulator with a dynamic, procedural, universe and empire building elements. Think Freelancer crossed with X3: Reunion and you have a pretty good idea what the game is about. The goal is to create an open universe that has a rich simulation behind the scenes, with the player being only a small part of a much larger world that evolves naturally over time. Here are some features that exist right now:

 

  • Dynamic universe populated by thousands of NPCs. No matter where you go or what you do, they are going about their daily lives trading and fighting.
  • Dynamic economy where goods are manufactured from inputs at stations who make their profits by selling products. Stations can go out of business for being unprofitable, and you can buy your own stations to produce your own products to sell.
  • Own as many ships as you want and order them to automate your trade / military empire. They can automatically trade, supply your stations, patrol for hostiles, and can be remotely commanded to do individual tasks.
  • Multiple factions to be friend or foe with. Even your trade habits will change their opinions of you.
  • Procedurally generated planet meshes and textures.
  • Designed for modding - 3D models are BLEND format, audio is WAV format, and external logic is in a simple plain text markup.
  • Joystick support!

And I'm always working on new stuff. The game is in early alpha, but is under active development. I'm hoping that you guys can provide me with some feedback to help improve the game and shape its future development.

 
The best part is that it's open source under the GNU GPL v3 and is known to work on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux (it is actually developed on Linux) thanks to being written in Java! Here's a trailer I put together for Alpha 2.

The Odyssey - a turn based retro SciFi fleet combat game

08 Sep 2014

Hi all, I'm developing this game, The Odyssey. As the title says, it will be a turn-based scifi tactical combat game. Think X-Com meets Battlestar Galactica. I have just put together a video showing the animation system I recently implemented.
 
 
It shows the art style I chose for the game. It is set in a future where GPUs suffered a rapid decline and everything reverted back to vector graphics :D In truth it is because I am no artist neon vector graphics are a cool artistic choice!
 
I always wanted a game where you would play the role of a space fleet commander. I felt there was an over-abundance of real time scifi combat games and a severe lack of turn-based ones. Hopefully, The Odyssey will fill this void. In order to avoid the game becoming a repetitive click-fest and eccessive micromanagement, one of the main features of the game will be the concept of Command Points. That is you, as the commander, will only be able to advise a limited number of other ships in the fleet each turn. The rest will behave according to their captain's AI and high-level mission goals. The game will be played on a hexagonal map.
 
If you want to know more:
  • Here is a post about the making of the video I posted
  • A post describing the story and setting of the game
  • I regularly post updates on my blog, on twitter and on other indie gaming sources
  • Any feedback (and help, especially from artists!) is welcome :)

The engine I'm building for the game is already open source and you can check it on GitHub. Other developers might find the UI library especially interesting. It can be integrated in your existing projects easily (without too many dependencies) and supports several cool features such as animations, databinding (MVVM-like) and attachable behaviours. Check it out!

Need help remembering the name of a game

08 Sep 2014

Posted by insommia In: Classic/Retro Space Games

I remember it as a 2d top down game. You could play against the ai or a friend. There was only a few ships to choose from and the goal was to destroy the opponent. You could buy better ships, shields and projectiles. Some projectiles would follow your opponent while other would fall towards the edge of the screen.

I think the game is from around 1990-1995`ish but i am not sure. The game had a resemblance to Maelstrom.

And for some reason i remember a goat bleating while playing this game o_O

 

Anyway, any input would be appreciated

Untold Universe is a space voxel-based MMORPG about thousands of players from all over the world exploring, colonising and shaping together a huge and uncharted universe.

When connecting to the game for the first time, you will be a pioneer freshly arrived from the known universe.

The game's multiple small planets are made of cubes that you can remove to harvest resources. Resources that will be useful to craft goods and build new factories, spaceships or many other structures that will prove to be essential to colonize and protect new worlds. Those who prefer action to building will be able to buy spaceships and weapons directly from those who produce them, and work at defending assets and convoys or at actually attacking each other!

Looking for a sim, ~15 years old, maybe older

04 Sep 2014

Posted by JinglePringle In: Classic/Retro Space Games

I played a demo of this game about 10 years ago, and I am pretty sure I played it on my since broken Macbook, but it could have been on my older PC which was stolen. 

 

Like I said, I only played a demo, so information is lacking. It was a top down game with jump points between different sections, warring factions, ability to upgrade my ship at planets and space stations, probably all typical stuff. You had the ability to name your ship and (I think) pilot. You moved the ship itself through the controls (not like FTL where you control the crew). Controls were twitchy, not text based. 

 

I recall being asked to join some faction and refusing, and then being hunted by that faction as a response. Also, on my longest run, I made it pretty far after being upgraded to some kind of psychic being type creature that did not have a physical manifestation of a ship and did not take normal upgrades. Because it was a demo, the game cut my experience short once I reached a certain point. 

 

Any ideas? Thanks! :)

Gratuitous Space Battles 2 pre-alpha footage

02 Sep 2014

Here is some pre-alpha footage of Gratuitous Space Battles 2 (mainly combat). So let's see how it differs from GSB1 and I hope it will give you more content than the original GSB1, yeah GSB1 had addons but I would like to see more in the core game before seeing DLC.

Need help naming + Feedback

02 Sep 2014

Posted by UtilityFunction In: Mobile and Web Gaming

I need finding a good name for my game. The current working title is "Sim Space" but I don't feel that it fits the game. Sim Space is a tactical space shooter I am developing for Android. If you have any suggestions for a name post away!

I'm trying to make the perfect controls for mobile. I have a version of the game I want you to try out and give me feedback.
I want to know what you think of the controls.
Is the game fun to play?
Do the controls feel fiddly or do they feel natural?
What would make them feel more natural?

Any other feedback about the game is of course welcome.

So a little more work on the mechanics over the last few weeks with more improvements made to the turrets, each ship is brimming with turrets whose individual properties, mixed with those of the beam or projectile, release each pulse of energy loving towards the enemy with no pre-determined maths and now things are moving on I've been looking at the targeting habits of the turrets and giving the player a bit more control over them.

On the prettiness side, Alex has come through yet again with a new shield effect and as I really work the dirty lens glow into the game i've had a few ideas on using it to create depth-adding effects yet keeping things light on performance. You can see more shots of the shield in the latest blog Gallery.

I also ripped out the UI, although it looked good it was actually pretty restrictive at what I could do with it and quite confusing to play. Text didn't really work for me either on a transparent background and I had a feeling we would encounter issues with localisation. Plus I have ideas about the new basic symbols system and think I can infuse it into the general play making it easier to know whats going on when it all kicks off. More on that in the blog post UI Simplified
 
 
In the latest video you'll see that the player ships are starting to come together to move and fight in formation. I'm stil scratching the suface of this mechanic which will deeply simplify battles with multiple ships and I start to look more at the 'Pack' idea from my orginal notes. But what is a 'Pack' and how will it help you? Find out in the blog post Formations
 
And one last thing, do you have twitter? Then you might as well follow me, that way you'll get the news directly.
