New Commonwealth missions

With the latest updates to Commonwealth missions, all CW stations that give missions now use mission types. This makes it a lot easier to add missions, so I think its a good time to have a brainstorming thread. If we get some good ideas I can write them up into mission types and maybe we can put the...

Re: Aurelius Online: Multiplayer battle arena

How are you handling ship destruction? Just a big boom and removing the model from the game? Pretty much how it works now, but in melee matches it would definitely be better for them to leave a wreck - that introduces more hazards/hiding spots as the game goes on. Individual meshes will be separate...

Re: Aurelius Online: Multiplayer battle arena

Things are starting to move pretty quickly. I don't think it'll take more than a couple months to release an alpha. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/265561663741100043/304087270019956736/ShipLineup.jpg I've been experimenting with nebula maps as well, which are looking great too. I'm planning ...

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

Woah, this is a really cool map. I didn't realize just how much rift there was.

Re: Era 3 bug: Unable to designate new sector capitals?

Ah, okay. That's a big change from the earlier versions.

Thanks

Era 3: Unable to designate new sector capitals?

I can't seem to designate planets as sector capitals. The error I get is: "Sector capitals must be at least 250 light-years away from imperial capital." despite that they are withing 250 light years (and meet all other requirements).

Anyone else seeing this error?

The map has been made and George is playing a bit of Anacreon now.

Regular stream time is 4 pacific and he usually streams Transcendence.

Re: Aurelius Online: Multiplayer battle arena

Made a little more progress today. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/265561663741100043/301225871388311552/AO_planetshine.jpg For the next little while I'm going to push on the graphical side of things and make it actually look like its built in Unreal. I also tried out a top-down view to make ...

Re: Question about Steam and here.

Thank you AssumedPseudonym but I still do not understand what this free download version is???? I downloaded a version here from kronosaur and it does not appear to be a trial. What you downloaded is a full game, "Domina & Oracus part I: Stars of the Pilgrim". This holds the majority of the content...

Re: A Bunch of Lore Questions

We know from the Commonwealth slums that they use air scrubbers. These would presumably remove things like carbon dioxide and exhaust from the air. Since stations presumably have their own reactors, it makes sense that they would use some of that energy to break down the carbon dioxide. This would b...

Re: Scenario/Unit/Library workshop

It crossed my mind that it should probably be possible to create robotic troops. They would be a high TL industry and probably have some disadvantages, like poorer performance on biospheres than barren worlds. They could also need some support tech, like the droid control ship in Star Wars, that wou...

Re: Aurelius Online: Multiplayer battle arena

I'm still revisiting this project periodically. Retopology is a big bottleneck, so in terms of the models things are going pretty slow. On the code side of things, I'm progressing a little faster. I'm still optimistic that there'll be a beta this year. I now have a somewhat functional UI. http://i.i...

Re: Scenario/Unit/Library workshop

It seems to be totally procedurally generated, with the code for generating nebula strands in the FallenWorlds file.I suspect that George might generate a couple galaxies and then pick the best one when he runs the scenario. When the Beta II map was started, we actually got to see it happen on Geor...
