Mdaddett back with a Kickstarter for Battleship Commander https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2009266379/battleship-commander
Looking for â‚¬20K also have a demo to download, needs a better pitch video and I hope he remembers to do lots of updates.
Battleship Commander is a single player, non twitch-based sandbox space game. The features that differentiate it from others game of the same genre are the accurate damage modeling and ship customization. The ships are made of hulls with slots for component and turrets. You build the ship by filling the slots with components. These can be for examples powerplants, engines, weapons and many others. Each component has mass, hitpoints, dimensions and a position inside the ship and can be damaged. When it happens the ship lose the functionality provided by that component. The armor of the hull and turrets can be customized by choosing the metal type and the thickness. The interaction between weapons and armor is realistically modeled. You start with a small ship and by fighting, trading or mining acquire larger ships, fleets and space stations. In Battleship Commander you are the captain of the ship and do not manually aim the guns or pilot the ship, instead you give orders to the AI, though manual piloting is possible.
Also the game has a thread here if you want to see how the game game has progressed over the years. http://spacesimcentral.com/ssc/topic/977-battleship-commander/
Hope he gets the funding for this since he has been slowly chipping away at this game for a while now and its great to have watched the progress over the years. The link to this kickstarter is also on the main page.
