Well there will be another video available this sunday, Patreons can already view the video via the patreon page.

Today I have added basic momentum for the player, there is still some things to do there on that side of things. I have also started adding back in the systems for the station so that when we actually go over to a terminal we an use it to get access to the basic sections of the station. We can already launch into space from the station. I have also fixed two rather problematic bugs so the game is running more smoothly now and this will allow me to move forwards with getting other sections of the game done as well.

More soon...

Last weeks video.

We have been doing loads to the BBS section this week to make it fit better into the space station segment of the game there still is a lot to do before we release another alpha version of the game BUT its getting ever closer, changes are as follows:
1) Changed the terminal icon to make it more match the idea of the game - now instead of news its a hand icon to access the BBS system.
2) Separated the station - the whole station segment was in the BBS file this has not been separated to its own file so I can make adjustments quicker.
3) BBS Main menu - this has also been moved to a separate file I intend to change the BBS system to make it more fitting to the game it still feels like a SF2000 BBS system.
4) Launching to space - you can now leave the station and go back out into space
5) Fixed the button system for docking

I still have LOADS to do but im getting through it slowly things we have now to fix due to the new adjustments are:
1) Clicking on the dock button doesnt allow docking for player
2) Clicking messages on the BBS message board doesnt allow you to use them
3) Clicking back is still to fast on the BBS it jumps back to the navigation section of the station
4) When docking again some graphics need to be removed
5) some placements need finalising to make the station always the same no matter what happens.
6) Model a new Blade medium fighter.
7) Texturing the player ship when its in the hanger.

But its getting there

Modelled a new Blade medium fighter, now all I got to do is texture it. Also I have fixed the positioning issue with redocking with the space station.

As usual there are some things I need to fix then I can move once again to move to getting other sections of the game done and get even more of the game ready for everyone to test once the demo is released.

While going through each of the console options in the hangar (mostly in reverse order), I selected 'Latest Messages' and received this error:

Error: Sprite 0 does not exist in
BBS_Missions.agc at line 471

Using 0.1.2 (Alpha) build. Otherwise, most things I tried are working well.

General bug squashing done now so the GUI doesnt vanish when you leave the station, now im onto fleshing out the rest of space then moving to getting more system down. Next up will be wormholes and gates so I can go between star systems

On the whole its looking quite nice now there is still some niggles that have to be sorted (I would like variations of weapons etc) but its getting there slowly but surely

After another coding session I have managed to get the wormhole and Jump gate effect in the game, this new effect will also allow me to get on with the loader for the whole going to another system exploration thing this will allow me to get another huge segment of the game done.

EDIT (18th Dec) : After another session we are getting closer to docking with jump gates and wormholes, I have adjusted the system so that each gate has a unique ID as this was overlooked before and this ID is looked at when the player uses the gate so we can place them where they should be on the other end. All in all its coming together and its hoped that the next release will see players starting to explore a whole new system or two . I will also add in rad damage should anyone want to dock with the unstable wormhole as this is very very dangerous indeed

I still have to get the BBS Message board back up as well this will be next on the agenda.

New version incoming ( 0.1.4 ), changes are as follows:
Things that have changed since previous release:
ADDED: Jumpgates - now you can jump between Aradis and Akaron systems, more systems will be added as time goes on.
ADDED: Coloured suns - now the suns are coloured to the correct colours.
CHANGED: Afterburners - now they are a little faster.
FIXED: Texturing on planets when entering new system
ADDED: Wormhole effect for wormholes in game

TODO: Radiation damage
TODO: Unknown wormhole chucking you our somewhere randomly (this might not be in a star system its a gamble you will have to take if you use these wormholes ). If your in a ship without a FTL Hyperdrive you will be stranded if your chucked out in intergalactic space.

BUGs found:
Afterburners - these don't work, this has been fixed and will be in the next build
Crash (found 26th Dec 20) - flying out, scooping an item then docking weirdly crashed the BBS. As I'm rewriting portions of the BBS this fix will be looked into and rectified in the next build.

28th December 2020 changes since last entry:
FIXED: Locator arrows being shown when docked
CHANGED: Station generation so now it is more refined for easy adjustment in the future.
FIXED: Station appearing outside station after docked (rather weird as you are in the station)
FIXED: Crash where player is placed outside the station area, I still have to locate why the player is actually placed outside the area as this is already hard coded into the source.
FIXED: NPC full name generator - now the system has some full names on the generator that will be picked under certain circumstances for NPC names.

I do intend to adjust the whole generation system at a later date to make each station segment as a whole thing that the player walks on instead of tiles this will make the game more refined and polished at present the tiles are temporary as placeholders.

The maiden voyage from Freeport 1 in Aradis to Blitz Industries station in Akaron via the Akaron jump gate

After another heavy coding session I have fixed some of the bugs the game had these fixes have been uploaded to GooglePlay , the fixes are as follows:
FIXED: Player deaths - now when you die you appear back in the last place you were docked at, all cargo is removed at this time.
ADDED: Damage from local phenomenon so the radiation cloud at the unknown wormhole will now kill you (and surprisingly quickly in the starter ship), bigger ships will fare better. For all those interested NPC's are also affected by this.
CHANGED: Explosions - now they are not just a one explosion wonder instead it goes off multiple times and gives a much better and BIGGER explosion.
CHANGED: Afterburner sound - forgot to reduce the volume on this now its fixed
FIXED: NPC locators not being removed when docked.

Now to refix the player placement after collecting cargo, get the message board back and add more star systems for the player to fly around in...

After yet another coding session we have added some more stuff to the mix, new things that are in the game now are:
1) Solar panels - Once we get the shipyard in there (its on the Todo list) you will be able to change and upgrade the solar panels on your ship. Each ship engine will come with solar panels as standard which will charge the ships battery (also upgradeable). These items will be used for different things in the game for example; recharging your shields will take battery charge, as will using afterburners (already in the build) other things will be things like energy weapon use. As for the solar panels these will convert sunlight back into energy for the batteries so you recharge after a while.

2) Start of fixing the asteroid collision system - once this is complete you will once again be able to smash into the asteroids as much as you want

3) Message board - this is also being worked on now so we can get back to doing those missions

More soon...

Well message boards are back in and yes you can complete missions, this update is on GooglePlay .

I am going to change the message boards somewhat to simplify it much more than it is now this should make it much easier to navigate and use.

<Edit>

WIP of the new BBS in action, most of it is working now just need to finalise some of the other bits so it's ready .
</Edit>

Other things on my list are:
-Adding the button bar to the walking section
-Adding a better delay so you don't multi click the top buttons.
-Add the credit balance to all screens

Once these are done along with the new mission board I will put up another build. On the whole the message board is getting there and the new proposed changes will bring it to its final state.

I still have loads to add to the space station section as well toake that more complete, things like cargo canisters, NPCs and other things to make it look more alive

More soon...

Well after playing around with the new mission board for a while we have decided to remove that idea as it didn't give enough information to the player. We have managed to add the button bar and credit balance to the walking section however

I have to design another icon for the BBS and finalise a few more bits but it's getting there now.

Next up is making the AI avoid the target and not kamakazi into it like a lemming, and make it so missions with high risk generate the actual risk

After another coding session I have finally fixed some more of the issues that was in the game, these are as follows:
FIXED: Mission issue when docking at a particular station
FIXED: System name not loading when loading in the star system file
FIXED: BBS issue where the mission would generate going to the place you was actually docked at
ADDED: Hunters so sometimes NPC's will come after you for risky missions, the more risky the more hunters will come after you.

There is loads that will be done over the coming week and after all that is complete I will release a new build of the game

Well after another coding session I haveanaged to adjust and fix some more things that didn't feel right in the game these are as follows:
Assassin's - the game keeps a record of how many assassins are out there after you now. Now even completing the mission will not remove the assassin as the guild has been paid to perform a task they will keep hunting till they can complete the task.

Missions - before the missions were not being removed from the mission list this was a big big in the mission system now it's been fixed.

Next up I will be fixing the BBS timing issues when changing screens and adding the "Britannia" sector of space.

<EDIT>
Todays fixes:
FIXED: transition from menus to BBS menus
FIXED: <Take 2> the location area for the game so you cant get missions to the same location you are in
FIXED: Assassins NPC's being assigned to asteroids so the asteroids would attack you LOL

New release incoming

This one has the following fixes and adjustments:
1) Serlise and London systems added to the mix with many many more to follow, the gates in the game are in there but are inactive due to the gate at the other end hasnt been constructed yet

2) FIXED an issue where the assassin didnt know where the fire button was, now they do

3) Sectors have been added to the terran map, the beginning systems are Core systems where London is part of the Britannia sector, there will also be Europa, Americas, Oceania, Asia, Orient, Russian Federation sectors as well each with their own systems and information.

4) Black holes have started to make an appearance, Serlise has one its a very basic texture at present and one that will be changed in a future release.

More soon...

After another coding session I have managed to get the Stock market back to a clickable state, also the new market now uses the touch system instead of hard coded buttons this means it is much easier to use and navigate around. On the whole I am rather pleased with the progress we are making on the game at present. What I want to concentrate on is getting the stock market itself to a complete state so we can buy and sell cargo, also jettison it when in outer space. Once I have completed that I will move onto getting the shipyard up and running so we can buy and sell ship components and actually see what cargo space we will have after all the stuff has been fitted to our ships.

More soon...

After another coding session we now have the stock market back, the new system has moved it over to the touch system and its all there apart from jettisoning cargo (you can do it but the pod isnt released yet). All in all its getting there now, all thats left is to move onto the shipyard

This version is currently released to googleplay for review and should be released soon... (v0.1.5a)

New update up on GooglePlay



This one fixes the following issues:
1) Scooping - now you can only scoop things of 1t. Scooping dead ships, asteroids or boulders will damage you ship.

2) Jettisoning cargo - this is now in there. I still have to add the fine for Jettisoning around a station but that will be added soon.

3) Stock market - this is now fully in the game. I do have to squash a bug with the displayed value when selling but that will be in the next build.

4) NPC - still ongoing the NPCs system has been overhauled to accommodate the new changes to the jettison system.

5) Assassin's - these will now attack the player properly

More stuff incoming which will be released over the coming weeks...

New version incoming

This one has the following fixes:
FIXED: cargo manifest not showing properly in station, still have a little more to do here for the selling of cargo in stations. When using the top bar the cargo manifest never displayed.

ADDED: Crime and punishment for shooting in the safe zone and illegal dumping. To dump cargo you have to do it out side of the safe zone, in the final game there will be a distance check relating to the security level of the station and local system.

ADDED: LOCAL ENFORCER's and Bounty hunters guild members, enforcers are free to shoot everywhere you have been warned as are pirates. BHG members are still bound by the safety zone so will not fire if your within the zone but enforcers and pirates will attack with impunity, the pirate will in the end have a increase on their bounty that will be coming next build.

ADDED: higher bounty for killing enforcers, 9000Cr instead of 6000Cr for killing anyone other clean pilot.

ADDED: no jumping inside safety zone, now you can only jump to another sector outside the zone, be careful as within the zone your still fair game for pirates

Local police are generated depending on the local system security level so a lower security will have fewer police.

Release version (0.1.5c alpha) incoming

This one adds the following changes:
ADDED: Beam lasers - now all ships will use beam lasers, the bolt weapons will be used for higher power plasma weapons and bigger guns on things like stations.
FIXED: Player shield - they were performing differently than NPC shields now this has been rectified this does lend weight to the beam weapons now being a bit more dangerous
FIXED: Issue with player spawning - once again this has been fixed
FIXED: Lighting issue with suns where the light was to close to the player ship so the light was on the wrong side of a station, Serlise B research institute being a prime example.

Next up will be Shipyard, getting NPC's to use afterburners and adding more systems with a wider variety of game environments like (Lightning storms, minefields and explosive nebula ).

More soon...
