Pirate it. Not worth giving money to the devs.

Andrew Bailey

I don't think its piratable?

Henry Bennett
Henry Bennett

No. Only if you can get the game and season pass together for 30 bucks or less.

Try pirating the latest version of no man's sky instead. It's actually added a lot single player content recently.

Ethan Clark

Thought it was. I wouldn't bother then unless you want a "graphical" experience. If you want to play as a jew in space try the X series.

Kevin Lee

Such as? And does it work on a toaster?

Dylan Reed
Dylan Reed

I did re-pirate it and besides the crashed freighter the start of the game is the same grindy slog for cash. You can honestly get started in E:D way quicker.
That and it still runs like trash on my comp.

If you get it on sale it is, the game has been slowly updated to make it worth 30$ if you get horizons as well and the Thargoid plot is supposed to be kicking into gear after the beta for 2.4 ends sometime next month. The beta patch notes where pretty barren of anything new so somewhat exciting things are happening.
If you're on the fence though I'd honestly wait, this is the last update for season 2 and the game's pricing model will probably change once 2.4 winds down. This means getting horizons and the base game might be cheaper as they combine the two and separate whatever is coming next into a new dlc pack.
Although from recent rumors it sounds like they're gonna move to smaller updates with cheaper pricing.
Reminder the Thargoid plot is supposed to be a one off event that will happen over the course of the next few months and possibly longer, part of the galaxy wide evolving story the devs get a hard on talking about.

It actually does amaze me that there has never been a properly good game about space exploration.
why do space sim devs try to cram everything in their games?
Cause .jpegs :^)
In truth though I am not sure why space game devs these days force in such feature creep. In the good old days you'd make a game engine or flight model and build your game around it, these days it feels like devs try to build the game they want by throwing shit on the wall and hoping it sticks.

Anyway uploading latest versions of Pulsar Lost Colony and a few other space games right now. It will be an hour before they are fully uploaded.

What was the most interesting looking planet you have seen from any movie,game,book etc?
Does it count that I liked how the earth was presented in Rescue Party? Just having a bunch of confused star fleet-like ayys investigating earth during it's final moments before the sun goes supernova was a pretty fun take.
Only to find that all of humanity just went fuck it, strapped everyone into rockets, aimed at a probably inhabitable system and flew off.
While having set up cameras all over the planet to send a live stream of the apocalypse to ourselves.

Adding to that, Loophole and Expedition to Earth could have made some fun short Myst-like games to be honest. I miss the era of hard scifi short stories and novellas, the shorter format lends itself much better to the genre.

In post-scarcity, communism or capitalism won't matter anymor. The Culture isn't some socialist utopia, it's a civilization that should have sublimed a long time ago but stays to mess with lesser races for shit and giggles while Minds take care of what is important.

Dominic Diaz

Rescue Party?
"You know," he said to Rugon, "I feel rather afraid of these people. Suppose they don't like our little Federation?" He waved once more toward the star-clouds that lay massed across the screen, glowing with the light of their countless suns.
"Something tells me they'll be very determined people," he added. "We had better be polite to them. After all, we only outnumber them about a thousand million to one."
Rugon laughed at his captain's little joke.

Twenty years afterward, the remark didn't seem funny.

Well done user, now go watch the gaiden serials.
Here's the production order.

Silver-White Valley
Dreams of the Morning, Songs of the Night >Dishonour
A Hundred Billion Stars, a Hundred Billion Lights.

OVA gaiden series 2.
Spiral Labyrinth
The Third Battle of Tiamat
The Mutineer
The Duellist
The Retriever

Do note that during series two their animation style changes a bit and becomes, at least in my opinion, flatter.
Also the chronological order would be Spiral labyrinth, Silver-white walley, The mutineer, The Duellist, Dreams of morning, songs of night, The retriever, A hundred billion stars a hundred billion lights, the third battle of tiamat and finally Dishonour.

So, whichever way you prefer to watch them, you are still in for a great ride.
Personally, i prefer the shows from series one, first of all due to the animation style still being similar to last season of main OVA and also because we get to see more Reinhard, Kircheis and Schenkopp.

Also pic related is from Dishonour.

Owen Rogers

Can you build in space in creative?

How big a ship?

How many options? Custom Giant turrets? Weapon types?

Mason Martin
Mason Martin

It's survival, but you can build a farm in a base or your spaceship to keep you fed
It's voxel-based, you can do a lot of landscaping to get resources and build you base. If you're autistic enough you can build your shit underground or in a mountain
Instead of having to build blocks of different shapes individually, you just build a bunch of cube blocks, right-click and you can select from a menu what type of block shape you wan to put down
Got a color and texture gun to label and customize your shit instead of having to build specific texture blocks
Deployable drone that allows you to fly around and use any of the player tools to build or even mine with so you're not hopping around like a tard to place stuff
Can build a small vessel to fly around in space or planets, or coast in a hovercraft (pic related), or big capital ships like in the last post
Gorillion planet types, tropical, tundra, lava, purple deathworld, etc with their own resources and enemies
factions for multi, pvp, modules that protect your base when you're offline
Game not ded, devs are active, add content and bug fix every other day

It's like all the things everyone wished were in space engineers. There's a lot of other shit like blueprints and modules that auto-construct bases or ships from a list you can choose from (if you got the mats). It's got content.

Can you build in space in creative?
You bet.
How big a ship?
As far as I can tell there's no upper limit.
How many options? Custom Giant turrets? Weapon types?
Nigga we got turrets out the ass: sentry guns, miniguns, cannons, rockets, missiles, flak, pulse lasers, artillery turrets. We even got mining laser turrets that auto-mine asteroids.

It's fun and would be fun to play with some 8fags in space

I just got my Oculus DK2 working with SteamVR. What are some good space titles to play on it? House of the Dying Sun looks fun, but short, so I dunno about paying $20 for it.

I tried Elite: Dangerous, but controls are tricky, and a lot of the cockpit text is very hard to read in VR.

also how good would a flight yoke and pedal set be for Elite?

I tried building a specific giant ship before (in Starmade), but the entire group just stopped playing more or less.
Now I'm building it in SE.

Staring from scratch and having to build a ship that big in Survival???
I dunno. I guess if there's a multiplayer world where multiple people can help me….

Also, I heard here's a limit to how many guns a ship can have.
And GIANT big-ass turrets?

The ship is (or should be) around 760 blocks long in SE (and that's downscaled)

Player of Games is one of my favs, their society is so incredibly utopian that you can do whatever you want, and because of genetic manipulation all deficiencies have been removed
plus due to post scarcity criminality has been pretty much removed, the crazy guys get a automated bot to zap them/stop them & observe them for the rest of their lives
virtual reality so real you dive into a virtual world while you sleep, free food at every restaurant you visit, if you want to design spaceships as a hobby even though a machine can do it 1 million times faster, you can
this game was real fun, especially as you can have enemy guys infiltrate and make your buildings explode, plus the different species are interesting, would be nice to see a new startopia in the works with more alien visitors
RIP, the game had so much promise
lucky you, I wish I could see it

Genetweaking might also produce the same result, if you are willing to make a race of genetically engineered spacers. Just don't make them bluehaired space elves or they might just try to take over your society and ban you from owning anything in orbit "for your own good".

What games let me play as a freakazoid alien creature? Doesn't even have to not be a humanoid, I just want to at least look like an alien. I've been on a star wars binge recently and the only games I've played so far that let you be an alien (say, a rodian or a wookiee) are Star Wars Galaxies and Jedi Academy, the bulk is just humans and the occasional green or blue human with spikes.
Don't get me wrong, I love removing xenos as a human-supremacist faction in tons of games, but if you're going to give me some melting-pot society with a bunch of aliens and make the humans have nothing special about them, let me play the damn aliens.

Alright. I'll look into all of these again.

Before it reaches totality, everything becomes an odd hue, you could see Jupiter and Venus, birds flock since they believe it's dusk, and apparently leaves cast much different shadows. Complete totality is an entirely different experience, however. Even witnessing an eclipse at 99% isn't worth a goddamn thing in comparison. It's a completely black hole with tentacles of light dancing around it that's so unbelievably crisp, no picture or video does it justice. The temperature drops drastically in the Moon's shadow, which sweeps across the Earth at mach 2. My only regret is that I didn't look at it long enough during the two and a half minutes, but it was worth the three days of no sleep, two-star hotel, and 16 hours of loitering in airports.

The Thargoids will be reskinned NPCs in renamed Conflict Zones and you know it. The special weapons will be new RNGneers recipe with new random materials drop from random encounters in Supercruise.

We also know that at least one of them will make the Thargoids vulnerable to conventional weapons.
We also know they will not have any affect on normal human ships, probably for the best as the devs have been struggling to balance anything after engineers became a thing.

It looks like that because of the physically based rendering meme that makes everything look cartoony and like plastic. I actually like that look for a space game though.

X4 looks breddy gud from that demo, but I remember Bernd's lies from the X Stillbirth demos and will approach X4 with caution. Still, they have admitted what a disaster Rebirth was, he even said they screwed up in the X4 demo. So I am cautiously optimistic for X4. Also I noticed the demo was played on mouse and keyboard, unlike Rebirth's demos which were all played on controller.

Are there any experts of old Space Sims in this thread?
I'm really new to the genre and got really interested in it only recently with Elite Dangerous. I want to research some older games so that I could try to make a space sim myself that fixes the problems I have with the ones that are out right now.

So far I only tried to play Elite 2, but I could not get it to run at a decent framerate. Is that even possible? Could really use some help.

What else should I play?

The Wing Commander series as a whole is required for anyone still wet behind the ears. Which one you start with really does depend on what aspect of space sims you like.

Trading? Wing Commander: Privateer.
Space Opera with solid space combat? The main series.

Avoid Prophecy like the plague if you care about the story. Privateer 2 also isn't that great.

Frontier: Elite 2 is top notch.

Ok here we go, in no particular order:
-Freespace 2, a must play and with the mods it looks like it came out last month.
-Terminus, a weird game and totally overlooked, you can play it as a campaign lead game with the Mars/Terran military start or play the Mercenary/Pirate start for a more Elite-like experience.
-Hardwar, not really a space sim sonce you are on Titan but you can trade and do missions, the storyline is nice too.
-Wing Commander Privateer, already covered by the other user.
-Escape Velocity: Nova, not a space sims but you have the whole trade/missions/storyline sided. Multiple storylines hook make it have a nice replay value.
-X series, the more Elite like of the bunch plus you can build stations and complexes. Avoid Rebirth. Also they didn't fell for the multiplayer meme so there is actual content in the game.

That's pretty much it on the top of my head.

I've mostly just been playing Wallpaper Engine lately. It's a fun game, but if I'm honest the gameplay is pretty much just Press Prtscn to Win. I found this planet getting absolutely obliterated by its parent star, which was neat.
I'm bored to death please help.

SE but better
I love SE, but what makes this Emp game better? The performance and the multiplayer never bothered me since I only play my autistic block building games solo.
Most importantly, just how autistic is it? I can only enjoy SE when I have mods that vastly multiple the number of metals and alloys, complicate all of the recipes with them, and necessitate Factorio-level production chains just to refine the fuel to perpetuate the chain, and I keep assembler efficiency and refinery speed at their slowest values. I find Create-mode building to be boring and pointless, and need to feel like I've earned every scrap of material I use to craft every individual block of my week- or month-long construction projects.
It looks pretty, and I'd love a SE-styled game that's autistic enough that I don't have to resort to buggy mods.

If you die in the rover, you lose your ship and everything you own just as if your ship was exploded, right? I'd like to try them out more, but I've been too afraid since I almost got mine destroyed by some random nonsense one time.

Nope if you die in your rover you re-spawn in your ship. The higher end small ships can easily carry multiple too.
You can also repair them anytime using synthesis in the right panel.

I know this happened last week, but I also reget not staring at it longer. I took a few shots of totality with my camera but I was more amazed at how the rest of the world looked. I didn't even look to see Venus or Jupiter. Worth a 24 hour drive and sleeping in a stranger's basement. Might go to Argentina in 2019 to see it again.

That's why I'm still weary, I've had a look at the developers and the only other game they've released was also a space combat sim. However I also read it was limited in units and mechanics and is still steep at a £15 price mark. The developers seem to care but I don't know maybe NBC Universal want's a quick cash grab for a shelved franchise.

Fuck the damocles, this badboy is where its at.
It hits like a battleship with those 10 broadside guns and 9 guns with good arcs let it take out hordes of smaller ships, all while keeping its mobility high so you can get out of tough scrapes.
It basically gets all the advantages of a big ship, without the big drawback they all get.

Uses a Radvoich for mining
The Radvoich is fast enough to burst in unload on a Dread and GTFO before they are able to charge their weapons. It also handles and move more like a Corvette/Light Frigate while still have formidable defenses and a good firepower. Overall it's fast and tough, a Battlecruiser in all but name.
If you have yet to try it out you're a fool.

Still doesn't mean it isn't one of the best ships in the game. The ship honestly needs nerfed by how ridiculous the thing is. You can literally get underneath the guns of a Dread and pump their ass full of mines and burst out before they detonate

If not what are some good games that let me make the human race number 1 while purging aliens I deem need purging.

Adrian Ramirez
Adrian Ramirez

Here is my new fleet in Aurora. I'm using this setting as the lore:
The newest Aurora game is set in 2065, 40 years after the purge on Earth. The Nationalist Monarchy of Monerva rose from the ashes of the war as the sole superpower. Besides Earth of that time, many small colonies were formed on planets and systems close to the cradle of mankind. Many perished without the support of Earth; only 2 survived. Mars, formerly a joint colony of all major powers on Earth, now ruled by the remaining military members that fled the purge, has closed its doors to all outsiders. Now called the Stratocracy of Mars, the martians have made the red planet an impenetrable fortress. While they hold great hatred for Monerva, they have realized they will never win an offensive war and choose to remain secluded. A Russian colony in the Proxima Centauri system also survived despite being on the most inhospitable planet that man ever set foot on. While hidden away from Earth, the colonists stumbled upon the ruins of an ancient alien civilization. The group of scientists that were sent to study the ruins formed a cult that soon spread across the globe. In just over a month of finding the ruins, the Proxima Centauri colonists formed the Grand Duchy of Holy Alproxia. With the knowledge gained from the ruins, the most inhospitable planets became garden worlds capable of supporting human life. Not caring about the activities of Earth, the Alproxians forgot the atrocities that the Monervans committed against their ancestors. While very isolationist and xenophobic against nonbelievers, they do not threaten anyone outside of their territory. Monerva has taken the opportunity to set up a trading agreement with the Alproxians as long as no information of their territory or their technology is given to the Earthnoids.

What was the most interesting looking planet you have seen from any movie,game,book etc?
Bryyo from Metroid Prime 3: Courrption

Inhabited by the Reptilicus species, a six limbed reptile creature
Has giant spherical space ships attached to the planet via massive chains, they look like small planetoids.
Architecture is lots of stone ruins that seem kind of Mayan/South American inspired.
There's also remnants of giant stone mechs around the landscape
Tidally locked planet. Only 4% of the surface of Bryyo is habitable. Due to the planet's alignment 48% of the planet is shrouded in permanent night, where the other 48% is perpetually exposed to the sun.
Turns out this is from the result of war that divided the natives and ruined the planet and tried to salvage what they could of their dying planet, one side using science (Lords of Science) and the other magic (the Primals). This war could have it own long greentext.
Present day, the planet and the Reptilicus could have been very prosperous due to it's abundance of space ship fuel known as Fuel Gel but is instead under Galactic Federation control who uses the profits to fund their military. The only remaining Reptilicus are savage, regressed, mutated and anti-technology.

Its pretty fun, user, fairly in-depth, though the story doesn't seem to be amazing or anything so far.

The interface (especially for controlling fighters/making your ships hit priority targets) is supremely clunky, though. Z-Axis stuff is pretty neat, and ship collisions always seem to result in both ships being destroyed

Elijah Martinez

Your main fleet is a mobile shipyard that can produce units on the fly, though only outside of missions. You can build ships and split them off into separate fleets and have them defend their own sections of the whatever the fuck place you're defending from the toasters.
Its closer to Gothic, I suppose, though your shipyard is (usually) always moving about, so you have to take account of that.

Vid related is the shipyard itself.

What is Holla Forums's opinion on Starfleet Command and Starfleet Command 2?
Personally I like the setting better than the regular star trek setting. The ships and races are all more interesting and varied, gameplay is good imo, relying more on planning ahead, to control your energy use, than twitch reaction or grinding for gear.
The campaign is just you going around and building up a fleet of ships you use to deal with everything from diplomatic incidents and tribbles, to that fucking doomsday machine…

He was probably told it has to be 'betterer than the executor class'. Given that the nuWars trilogy is actually the remakes of the original trilogy films this is what'll replace the executor and the second death star perhaps for the third one.

He did though, turned them from blue to black, made them a lot darker and added more red on everything. He did the same to the design of the Tie Fighters and made the black and added in a co-pilot. He'd have redesigned the Falcon if given the chance.

He's pitching a sequel to Who Framed Roger Rabbit and is in talks for a Half-Life movie.

Sword of the Stars lore only gets better from there.
Humans are the new species on the block
They have an FTL technology that no one else understands that makes them fast as hell and completely invisible while in transit
Humans learn from their encounters with other species (good and bad) and incorporate those lessons so quickly it scares everyone
Humans accidentally unleash an AI dooming the galaxy… only to then find a solution and save the galaxy
Humans crush numerous random and wildly dangerous space monsters (some of which they woke up in the first place)
Humans are the new sleeping giant everyone is afraid of
Enter Zuul: angry psychic furfags who shit on everything because they can (like all furfags. Eat shit you diaper-wearing subhumans)
Humans enter total war status and don't even bother attempting diplomacy
Every other species joins the humans, terrified of angering them
Humans develop countermeasures to Zuul psychicfaggotry
Humans fuck them up so bad they have to phone home for help.

Fuck off cockroach, this is a human-only thread.

It's a fun game and they have slowly been improving it. But like a lot of things, the fun only lasts so long. Still… worth playing.

If you like Pulsar's crew mechanics and don't care about first-person shit, check out Empty Epsilon as well. It's free and open-source, and scripting new missions for it is quite easy.

They fixed it up a lot since then. I still prefer SOTS.

SOTS2 introduced some very cool stuff (proper armor mechanics, more in-depth ship control, height planes) and some questionable ones (homebases, fleet creation, missions).
They are not "bad", given that they are designed to mimick how fleets work in RL, though they are somewhat constricting.

Your humanity fuck yeah fanfic is mediocre.
Humans are not more feared than the other races. Tarka have their military might, Liir have their super tech and mind powers, the Morrigi have their doublestandards, lost tech, and general douchebaggery Hivers have endless numbers and unmatched tenacity.
Human Nodespace drives are no more utterly incomprehensible to other races than their FTL is to humans.
Humans have no more experience or success at dealing with all the spacemonsters than all the other races. Less often, since they have far less experience at dealing with them than the other races who have all been around for hundreds to thousands of years. Hell, the Morrigi probably made half of them so long ago they've forgotten it.
Every race went to war with the Zuul, not because they where afraid of pissing off the humans, but because the Zuul attacked and raided everyone. And considering what the Zuul do to their slaves, everyone thus had good reason to do something about them.
Humans did not exclusively develop the training to resist Zuul mindrape, that was the Liir who used an old mindgame of theirs as the basis.

Dynaverse is a community that still do campaigns and modding for the Starfleet Command series. That thread was for a patch for SFC II, but they also discuss how to get the game to work.
I got the best results by choosing Software Emulator in the setup exe after installing and modding the sfc.ini file to run the game windowed. The text in game is a bit small, but other than that it runs fine.
