Hello everyone :)

Well finally my own project is nearing more and more completion and I am starting with an internal alpha soon. So I wanted to announce my blog where I try to keep the community informed about the progress and info's of my upcoming Online Game: Galaxy Online - The Tournament.

Otherwise there is not much information as of yet, but I will add more in the coming weeks. Hope you like it.

Kind regards,
Oliver

I'm forced to download the images when I click them. I'd much rather watch them in a new browser tab. Looks cool though :)

Oh it opens in a new window on IE9, but it seems to be an issue with Chrome. Thanks for the info I have fixed it now, but glad you liked it :)

Kind regards,
Oliver

Your ships look good. The torpedo sucks. And why don't you make it more realistic. Like conveying larger distances or making the scale of the lasers and torpedoes small in comparison to the ships. Shouldn't the ship on the right in TCR be several times smaller than the ship on the left? Maybe could research all the weapon types in Star Wars, Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica and build up and advanced ship customization system.

EDIT: The economic system sounds interesting.

Thanks. Well to be true there are many things I would like to improve over time. But since this is a one man project I had to start at some point. Better you finish something you can achieve, rather than trying something too complex and getting stuck somewhere and thus never finish. My program code is very clean and easy to maintain so it shouldn't be too hard building up on it.

Especially laser/torpedo/ship scales (depending on size, strength etc.) is something I will tweak up for sure, so thanks for sharing your ideas. However the ships you see in the SS are about the same size.

Regarding science-fiction related technology... I for one think it’s not necessary to focus on special technology from Star Wars, Star Trek etc..! The game is science-fiction, so it’s basically up to me to decide what is possible and what not. I for one think that the current ship customization system is good for its purpose. It’s easy to understand but still very flexible, especially since you can mix up whatever you want as long as you stay within your power/units limit. Also since you can upgrade nearly every attribute of every component makes it even more fun to create something unique. The game is about experiencing different types of starship configurations and strategies while keeping it fun and simple... making it too complex would unnecessarily blow up balancing/server side combat calculations/replays and so on. Always remember you don’t interact during combat, so it’s not nearly as important to calculate with high complexity as it would be in a space flight simulator.
