  1. It has been a few days and already they have 1/4th of the funding, SC. But you are right. This is just the initial surge, they are probably not going get past half way, especially with their crappy pledge options.
  2. I agree. They didn't sell themselves well on this one. What a shame.
  3. I'll have to check up on the Youtube videos, but using the pre-built rockets is basically what i've been doing most of the time. So far my max altitude has been 227k m with a modified version of the Ravenspear. Damn, this is hard.
  4. Talk about a steep learning curve... No basic tutorials or anything ...basic
  5. Unfortunately, too many developers live by the motto 'Go big or go home'. Ironic in some ways, isn't it? I'm no game developer, but I would think that starting on a small project with reasonable parameters would be more beneficial and productive than trying to create the next Freespace game in your spare time, by yourself. This is just an assumption, but I'm sure Derek would not have been able to pump out UCCE had he no big, cuddly team, no money, and no time to work on it. And that's exactly what the Infinity guy's situation is, and some others are not far off. Infinity would have been finished by now, or at least be in some alpha/beta stage, if the guy had enough money to work on the game without working a job. Money seems to be the biggest issue, apart from expertise, when it comes to the Indie space genre. It would have been nice if Infinity set the standard for games of its kind. Oh well. Time to end my thought bubble here.
  6. This one? http://www.infinity-universe.com/Infinity/index.php
  7. Looking at Kinect Void, I admire what they are trying to accomplish. But I am skeptical about it, especially given their low budget and immense game universe they are trying to design. The three main areas I am questioning are the graphics, ship control/steering, and the purpose of the game, beyond just being a sandbox. The interface looks pretty basic & unpolished and there is something else I cant quite put my finger on. As for ship control, I've been doing a little digging and can't seem to find anything on that, which makes me wonder how they are going to go about it, as I would not want to play another Starpoint Gemini. And then there's the purpose, which just seems to be build a ship, explore the game universe, and do jobs for factions. The lack of direction is what I find troubling. Those are my thoughts on it for now. Will have to see as they release gameplay videos.
  8. Only 1 spammer this time, seems to be working.
  9. How do you find this stuff SC? You should do it more often, I enjoyed reading this one.
  10. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mostwanted/nexus-2-the-gods-awaken They've hit 40k so far. I hope they get funded. This is probably the most promising space game I've seen in a long time.
  11. Several times. You should go on their forums, there are a few mods up there including a mod manager. One of them disables the rebel fleet pursuit, so the game becomes a little more open ended. And I believe there is a saved profile floating around that unlocks all of the ships.
  12. I've been having a blast with it. I cant wait until the community makes a bunch of total conversion mods for it. That will be so epic.
  13. Well i've been at that point for days now, I went so far as to even conquer the ones not on the map. I encountered some bugs going into that part of the game; tacops crashing, extreme lag whilst having a fleet follow me, PTA system not functioning after returning to the "normal" map the first time I came in and out of that quadrant. Might have even screwed with my artifacts AFAIK.
  14. Edit; Misspelled TMCD Anyways, i've had it onboard for days, and all of my officers AIs are above 75. Damn thing isn't working. I'm not sure if it's even been analyzed, i've had all of my crew on station for hours at times yet nothing happens. Nothing new in bridgeviewer.Any solutions? I'm flying an Engstrom
  15. Steam is a pile of shit anyways, probably better that a classic isn't on there.
  16. Reporting In. Hopefully a 3 win streak will get me promoted to Admiral.
  17. Whenever I have enough self control I'll get'er done.
