Hello Everyone,

i started this project 3 month ago. it's my first real programming project and i'm fairly pleased with the progress.

The game itself is heavily inspired by pax britannica, one of my favourite games to play on smartphone.
which is a great game but it would be even better with more content available. so i want to provide many ships, items, weapons, gamemodes and missions.

planned features:
- many more ships & weapons
- local multiplayer


It will be released later this year and is playable on desktop and android.

Wow that looks impressive for only 3 months! It also very much reminds me of Starsector, also made in Java+LWJGL by our own avm1979 Smiley

thanks :-)
the games main focus will be capitalship vs capitalship(s) battles where you outsmart your opponent by choosing proper unit and weapon composition.
there will be a galaxy system with many various worlds, enemies etc. but the story won't be too huge.
i'm thinking about a game mode where you actually control a little spaceship in the battle. it's already semi-implemented but i probably have to scrap it because it doesn't fit 100% and i want it to be playable on android too.
i want to provide a large amount of spaceships and weapons to choose and if there is enough time i want to implement internet-multiplayer.
but it's my first game and my first priority is to actually finish it.

update:
- implemented a score & save system.
- created a new capital ship which is actually a space station and a new fighter
- implemented a proper mission selection system

because i can't draw but have some (beginner) experience with 3d modeling every spaceship is actually a 3d-model.
this helps me a lot with the animations too.
i made some really simple basic models and applied some greeble.
here are a few examples: http://imgur.com/a/7Qmtp#0

I think my favorite ting about this thread is learning the word "greeble".  The only show I remember that avoided really gratuitous greeble was Babylon 5, and whaddya know, the station looked as plastic and hokey as JMS's writing (zing).

Anyway the whole thing reminds me a bit of Netrek and believe me that's a compliment. Smiley  The station does look a bit like a sitting duck though, whereas in netrek they're Unstoppable Badass Fully Operational Battle Stations.

yeah, without randomly picking up the greeble term the game would look a lot more hideous. Grin

Netrek is still played. really impressive. i will check it out.
