NOTE: The game "Kings & Pawns" has been tabled for the time being due to lack of interest. Maybe sign up for this one instead?

Space War 0: Free Space

This is a test game to test out some of the new systems that will be used in a future goal-oriented Space War game. Nonetheless it should be pretty fun.

  • Free-for-all game.

  • Fully automatic (no host interaction needed). Infinite auto-actions. Rounds updated sporadically at Host discretion (to archive posts mainly). Dead players (and ships) resurrect on space stations at full health.

  • Pilot Spaceships to go from system to system.

  • Go around planets / on derelict spaceships / stations / etc as a human.

  • Use spaceships to shoot at other spaceships, asteroids, etc.

  • Gain Stardollars for destroying things (especially other spaceships).

  • Find Raw materials on planets, inside derelicts, etc. You can also use Stardollars to purchase raw materials.

  • Use raw materials to craft ship weapons, ammo, human weapons, human ammo, and even new spaceships. You can maybe also buy these with Stardollars.

    Systems still needed

    The systems should be ready in a week or so, so sign up in the meantime!

  • The "kindof" update will be done in a couple hours -- this makes all the new systems possible.

  • Crafting System

  • Shops

  • Vehicles

    If you're going to do games with infinite auto actions you're gonna need to do something to limit certain auto actions... For example you get infinite chances to keep trying to steal an item :)

    @Moonray: yes, I agree. I was thinking about rehauling the action system entirely so that you could group together action types and set limita the group. I'd also like to make it so you can disable actions as needed.

    @Xhin:
    Another thing you may want to look at is if you have a weapon that when fired uses 7 bullets and there are only 6/10 bullets in a bullet box then you only have 1 use of the weapon b4 you need to find another bullet box.
    To stop players (like me) from hording bullet boxes make the boxes hold more rounds. Like 50. This would also apply to Fission Cells and other types of ammo.

    Those numbers can be set by a host when they make the item. I suspect Xhin just used some random test numbers.

    Also, it seems like you can spam 'throwable' items. If you happened to get a bunch of them you could put a world of hurt on someone even when it was their turn to attack you.

    Speaking of bullet boxes, I'm curious how the steal menu works. If there are 7 bullet boxes that 7 people have, you have 7 options to pick from when stealing. Do you have to happen to pick the SPECIFIC bullet box the person you're stealing from has, or can you just pick any bullet box and still possibly be successful? Any chance you could change it so that bullet box only shows up once in the menu?

    I'm thinking time-based cooldowns might work even better than round-based cooldowns because it would keep players engaged in a fully auto game for long periods of time -- so instead of like, being able to throw an item three times a round, you could instead throw an item once every 4 hours.

    Speaking of bullet boxes, I'm curious how the steal menu works. If there are 7 bullet boxes that 7 people have, you have 7 options to pick from when stealing.

    Yeah it was kind of messed up in the beginning, but with the Item Kindof update I should be able to sort and process items by "kindof" in menus like that -- as a host you would naturally clone bullet boxes instead of adding them in manually.
