What is OutpostHD?
OutpostHD is a game inspired by OUTPOST that adds the missing advertised features, improves gameplay mechanics by removing a lot of the unnecessary and tedious micro management, interface choices that make a lot more sense, an enhanced research tree and a planned but as of yet undeveloped multiplayer mode.
The core of the project is to provide a fun OUTPOST game that has all of the advertised features and provides better feedback for things like resource lines, mining/factory/laboratory reports and colonist opinion/morale.
Develop a new, modern code base that can be built and run on multiple platforms including Windows, MacOS X and Linux.
Implement the core gameplay mechanics from OUTPOST
Provide a better interface from which the user can get better feedback from their Colony.
Add the ability to establish new colonies on the same planet.
Develop new visuals to replace the old graphics using modern rendering procedures and alpha transparency (something impossible at the time the original game was built).
Add additional planet and star types.
Implement a multiplayer mode where other users can establish colonies on the same planet or different planets/moons within the same star system.
What Platforms are supported?
OutpostHD is primarily developed on Windows but will run on macOS X and Linux (has been built and successfully run on Arch and Ubuntu flavors).
Is the Source Code available?
Yes, most definitely. Source code is hosted on GitHub.
