Not him, but damn are playable borg overpowered. I read that the playable version was brought down from the bossmode ai borg, so I thought I'd give them a try.

They're only kind of weak in the early game where all your shit is so slow you can't properly defend yourself if you are even slightly offensive. After that you quickly become an economic god with pretty much unlimited resources, and once you get a tactical cube, the game basically plays itself. Send that shit over to the nearest pirate base to eat it for levels, and it can solo everything.
>>
>>252838189
Also, you can assimilate pirate and planetary defense ships into collective.
Other faction ships too.

>>
>>252837594

From what I recall, they tried to get crowd-funding for their games twice before, both times before the whole craze about it started, asked for around 400k euros and both times failed to reach the goal.

Sad really, when you see what other kinds of shit got funded.

Also, I much preferred the ship we had as the main one in the early missions than the alien one.

I agree, it's lovely. You should look up an artist names Peter Elson. He was one of the main sources of inspiration for the ship designs - they actually named a character in the first game after him as tribute. His art is pretty cool.

Most Star Citizen backers are just in because they played Freelancer, or followed the hype. There are few people among them who even know what Elite is, just like few actually are interested in space sims. They think it's all a war and are fighting as if there was an overabundance of space sims.

That's why there's such a "war". Most Elite Dangerous backers on the other hand are true space sim lovers and backed both, and don't really care to argue about anything, precisely because they know we've just been through 12 years without a good space sim.

Besides adding new models and your typical old factions (Taiidan, Turanic, Kadesh, Progenitor, Bentusi now?), nothing much.

I personally prefer both Complex and Simplex mods, but I loved the old PDS mod, especially during 1 on 1 capships battles. All those bullets, missiles and flak explosions, it looks like a game directed by Michael Bay.

As far as I know, there is no war. It's just one or two shitposters who like to instigate and stir people up. Also Elite Dangerous only has a general sometimes, so their dudes come into Star Citizen General and fuck around.

This game had a shitty fate, it sucks that they updated with new weapons, that really took away from the purpose of using the environment and 360 degrees of movement tactically, the weapon didn't matter.

Sadly it's fucking dead as hell now and bot matches are just not fun after a while.

They should have just released it for free, but it's too late now the Angry Birds developers own the IP and bought out Futuremark Games Studio

>>252849463
They have a different balance, but so far they do the exact same thing.

The only key difference is that in Elite, secondary thrusters have fixed positions, while in Star Citizen, many actually rotate around a pivot point: this makes the simulation more complex, but it's not the kind of complexity that make it "better" or "more interesting", it simply makes ships handle differently.

Well the old elite fans have typically backed both games and are excited for both.
The ones who favour ED on its own are typically younger ones who don't like multiplayer games since ED will let them dodge player conflict.

Meanwhile SC will have a fuckton of player conflict capacity.
And guilds. Which ED does not have.

In effect Frontier are trying to make a singleplayer game with multiplayer elements.

It isn't unless you're playing Taiidan and know what you're doing. Anyone else will get raped.

In some of these mods the Progs get a light granule, which is basically an OP ball of light that moves faster than any other ship and blows up any capship in one shot except a mothership.

Their units are shit though and dont have much variety. That's their weakness. Othewise they rely on Dreadnoughts and Sniper ships to beam you from far away. Break their defenses and you'll shit on them. Their units cant fight well up close.

SC is a full singleplayer Wing Commander style game. And an MMO currently in alpha, with playable multiplayer dogfighting mode. You can walk around in any of your ships, float outside of them if you like, etc. It's a giant space sim. Expected final release next year.

https://robertsspaceindustries.com/

Elite Dangerous as I understand it is an MMO focusing on procedural generation to make a galaxy of content. Where you can just go jump into a random system where a battle is taking place and help out or not and etc. It's currently in beta much closer to release than SC. Expected final release much closer to now.

It runs kinda bad on DosBox. You could try glFrontier, it might run better, though I don't play Elite 2 much myself so I wouldn't know: http://tom.noflag.org.uk/glfrontier.html

And then there's Pioneer, an Elite 2 remake with very good graphics: https://youtu.be/1aVf-8qVdsg#t=126
Get it here: http://pioneerspacesim.net/

You also have an Elite remake, Oolite: http://www.oolite.org/
With plenty mods: http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/OXP_List

Or you could play Elite 3: http://www.eliteforever.co.uk/files/ENCOUNTERS.rar
With an updated engine: http://www.frontierastro.co.uk/Hires/hiresffe.html

But don't bother too much with the old versions.

When will ED release? As far as I can tell their website only says 2014

How will it play? Will I be able to organize a group of bros, like 4-5, and cruise the galaxy looking for trade opportunities? Will we be able to explore for the sake of exploring, like will there be interesting things worth finding? I just wanna chill out in space with some friends

>>
>>252855573
They planned it for the end of the yearn might coincide with Elite or Elite 2 anniversary, though that would mean a late september/early october release, and it's unlikely.

Otherwise there's everything you want: there's an MMO part, you can form groups with friends, cruise around, explore... we don't much about the game though, they're very secretive. We should know more once the beta is available at the end of the month.

>>252855887

>>252855710
>They would have to put out another whole game's worth of content to justify the price tag of it.
That's kinda what they want to do. Planned expansions are:

>Landing/ driving / prospecting on airless rocky planets, moons & asteroids
>Walking around interiors and combative boarding of other ships
>Combat and other interactions with other players and AIs in the internal areas of star ports
>Accessing richly detailed planetary surfaces
>Availability of giant ‘executive control’ ships to players

They're quite ambitious with it. It'll be worth the money for sure.

I'd love something like that but set in our solar system.

Like the mid-period in our space exploration and travel, were we've colonized the solar system up to the closest Kuiper Belt objects.

Just total mastery and human colonization of the solar system, with hundreds of moons settled, asteroids, planets, deep space colonies and stations, etc.

The big thing in the background as you play is that there is currently an orbital yard building a massive starship for the journey to Alpha Centauri - sorta like in Planetes but not bound for Jupiter, the Jovian moons are filled with human settlements, this ship is bound for another star.

But otherwise there would be pirates too and bandits and outlaws, especially out by Pluto.

Here's what I want to know, and I haven't been able to find videos on this.

At it's current state, does Space Engineers allow you to build a ship in multiplayer, where the game is stable enough to allow your friend to walk around the ship while you pilot it?

For some reason I'm fascinated by the idea of space games letting me walk around on the ship free-form, and I know SE let's you create a ship of virtually any size or shape. Problem is, I don't know if it would lag horribly if you had someone try to walk around while doing business as usual.

it's not gravity
swinging the bucket creates centripetal force, where the velocity of the water is directed towards the bottom of the bucket at all times
the direction of motion is at right angles to the centre of the circle that is described by the motion of the bucket
imagine if, near the top of the swing, the bucket suddenly vanished
the water would fly off diagonally upwards
therefore, the bucket pushes the water back down with an equal and opposite reaction to the velocity pushing it in the direction of motion

Would you play a game based on Space Dandy where you comb the galaxy like your pompadour on the hunt for aliens?

For what game? For rebellion the latest version on mod db is working fine for me, remember to disable the cosmic anomalies if you have the DLC

I looked up a rough estimates online.

If you take NASA's estimate for the mass in the universe
-1.6e60 kg

And estimate for the sake of argument the ship has the density of water on average (considering it is made of both metal + air)
-1000kg/m^3

And take the volume of the milky way galaxy
-1e60 m^3

You see all the mass in the entirety of the universe could make a ship 1/1000th the size of the milky way galaxy.

What games are these mods for? I love me some LOGH.

I still need to get through 110 episodes of the OVA. Jesus christ help me.

>>252876845
I want to see a game based on the largest ship ever created
there was some sort of catastrophe and communications are dead, everyone is cut off from each other and resources are scarce
you were in cryosleep, but you were woken up after being discovered several months after the catastrophe to assist a band of survivors in attempting to find an escape craft
there are wormholes all over the ship to travel effectively from one section to another, but they're working erratically, requiring you to find alternate routes or restore power to them to progress
the only foes are environmental hazards from the decaying ship and other bands of survivors who will kill you for your supplies

>no interest from corporations and shit to explore the deep sea
Quite contrary - deep sea mining is extremly interesting to corporations and a growing industry sector. Contrary to space it's also possible to be made profitable (space travel still suffers from the fuel efficiency issue).
If you are really up for adventure look to the oceans. It's more likely you find a paid job there than related to space travel/logistics.

Not that guy, but the deep sea scares the shit out of me.

Sins of solar empire games, for Rebellion the latest in the series the mod was updated a few months ago to just work with it, there should still be the original versions for the older games around though.

It scares the shit out of everyone.

>>252877572
Or a generation ship that has entire primitive civilizations living aboard it who don't know that they are on a space ship.
>>
>>252877872
that would make an excellent film or novel but it would be difficult to work into a video game I think

>they go mining
>hit the outer wall
>explosive decompression

Doesn't seem like it would take them long to find out.

>>252877817
Cool, I had been meaning to pick those games up, but I think I'll be doing it sooner now, rather than later.

>>252877212
Hardly an obstacle, we'll just mine out all the millions of parallel universes

>A boy has the right to dream

>>252877572
That's quite an interesting concept I would play a game like that add some of this >>252877872
and perhaps the ship itself could be simulating life on a planet in some sectors, so that people wouldn't even know they are on a ship
