Curses. Can't say I'm surprised, i'm pretty sure it would be an absolute beast to code xD

Re: Thoughts on the races?

Something worth pointing out is that formations now survive the loss of any one member. I'm thinking this will prove to be a big change from the original game and encourage a lot more positional, group-based fleets, and we won't see the collapse into melee that used to happen quite as much. Complet...

Re: Impressions on the Beta (Updating Until Title Changed)

Hey welcome back, and thanks for the feedback. As you say, dreadnoughts might be too capable alone, and I'm open to the idea of removing the ability for them to have tractor beam entirely, and possibly downgrading the effectiveness of their anti-fighter defensive lasers. One of the design ambitions...

Re: Thoughts on the races?

Hi, lkohime! It's nice to see you back here again. :) Honestly they seem decently balanced at first glance, although the bonuses are huge. They still need quite a lot of additional balance in a way that's not so obvious right away to anyone who's just coming into GSB2. I've been heavily involved co...

Re: Thoughts on the races?

I've unlocked all the races now, and played as 2. Honestly they seem decently balanced at first glance, although the bonuses are huge. That might just be my bias from GSB where a 20% bonus was huge xD

Re: Is there a meta-game?

In a word, at the moment? No

Wait for the challenges to go up, though. That's where the PvP comes in, and although the metagame kind of became a RPS with tribe (shh, i know it's an oversimplification!) it was still pretty involved.

Impressions on the Beta (Updating Until Title Changed)

Hey guys, it's good to be back. I'm LKohime, and I've been fairly seriously about GSB since before Tribes was released. I'm also the guy who broke the campaign in the beta, with the pure fighter fleet. I've let myself be distracted by other games, but GSB2's been on my radar for well, as long as it'...

Re: GSB 2.0 Graphics Experiment...

About what I expected, although the illusion of 3D got really fantastic.
On a semi-related note, what's the timescale a project of this magnitude usually operates on? Not this one in particular, but one of about this level of complexity and scope.

Re: GSB 2.0 Graphics Experiment...

I'm wondering how your engine handles the rendering. is it a 2D projection of a 3D space, or is it a cheated "3D view" of the 2D surface? If it's the former, how do you define camera angles? That is, could the 2.0 engine have the possibility for a side view? I rather doubt that would be th...

Re: Tips for organizing fleet designs

My fleets are all purpose built. Missile Wall. Missile Formation Anchor. Fast Missile Fill. That sort of thing
if it's experimental, where i'm refining designs, i copy all my designs out of the folder and only look at the models i'm refining

Re: GSB 2.0 Graphics Experiment...

I haven't transferred any more ships to the new lighting system, but other stuff is in the works. You probably can't tell from this static shot though :D screenshot_08-09-2013_21-53-00.jpg I'm seeing a few things that pop out as "different" but given that all are related to lighting, I'm ...

Re: GSB 2 - Brief Speculations

Oh this will be next year. It's a total revamp planned, but I am experimenting with the existing game rather than starting from scratch. A lot of improvements are planned, and I'll go into more detail when I'm working on it full-time. I eagerly await more news (and not just in hopes that it goes 3d...

Re: GSB 2 - Brief Speculations

Yeah the turrets are just not done at all right now. i can basically turn the ambient and directional lighting up and down on a per-mission basis (or even let the player adjust it mid battle) so hopefully everyone will be happy :D Yeah the lasers light up the hull. Right now even the repair bot wel...

Re: GSB 2.0 Graphics Experiment...

Given the thread title, I think it's safe to assume that GSB2.0 is coming. What's more, given the higher quality of the sprite, i'm going to go ahead and call it 3D. I'm probably all wrong, but...

Re: So, which race do you prefer and why?

I'm a Rebel man, through and through. I've played every non-modded\ race except the last two DLC races. I've beaten the campaign with every race EXCEPT the tribe (and that's only because to hell with the tribe, seriously. Too OP to bother with!) Their fighters are amazing, their hulls are perfect fo...
