Re: missions are too hard

I'm all for this idea. What might help is some highly commented missions built as templates - something like 10 example missions that are each unique. That would provide enough of a basis for most people to get started. Here's some examples, can we think of any more? - go to location X and kill thre...

Re: End of Era 5

It looks like the new scenario is uh, pretty broken

Most planet names are "null", and I can't interact with my planet either.

What size is preferred for the icon image? Or does it scale up and down to best fit?
Icon images are 200×150px.

Re: The connection between part I and II.

With some engine side modifications, we could probably write an xml file at the end of part 1 that functions like an optional extension for part 2. Basically a playership mod written on the fly that typCreates the part 1 content. I'm not sure how useful it would be though, since you want to switch s...

Re: Coming Soon: Reign in Hell

I just need to update the adventure's code to work with the modern game and it will be ready for release. I'm amazed at how thoroughly broken it is after just one year.

My Ideas for Moving Forward

When I found Transcendence, being a free game was enough to get people interested. Unfortunately the days of that being a novel thing are over, and we need to compete with high volumes of similar games to get people to even try it. This is not an issue with the game itself, its a matter of selling w...

So, what am I doing here?

Working on Transcendence had always been a huge time commitment for me. The majority of work I put into my mods was in the few hours I had after working a 10+ hour shift, and I was always working far beyond my actual skill level. I had to be incredibly strict with my time management, and I had to ap...

Cool stargate effect in after effects

Just playing around in after effects and came up with this. It's a pretty simple effect (CC Ball action + echo). Just dropping this here because it would kick ass as a trailer.

Re: The Transcendence Color Palette VS Other Games

If could draw better than I do now, I would consider portrait or face mugs in dockscreens. If conversing with an NPC, you see the portrait of that person, maybe tough spaceman in a helmet, maybe anime-style young nurse with pink hair (and big eyes and a smile), maybe haggard old space admiral in mi...

Re: getting the lamplighter weapon...

If you get a high enough fleet rank, find the CSC Terra and you'll get the mission to hunt down the CSC Antarctica from Admiral Decker.

Depending on your choice in the mission you can get the lamplighter.

Re: Multiverse open for uploading mods

I think long-term we should consider a group that can repair or maintain obsolete mods, making just enough changes to make it playable again. This could be done to keep very old mods playable and compatible with newer extensions, as an alternative to just taking the entry off the catalog completely....

We're going to need a way to delete collection items for sure now, in case of mod conflicts breaking the game.

Re: [Concept]: Outlaw miner update

Well like I said, I feel like this should go along with an update to mining in general. There's room for more variety than just lasers. That aside, I think the mining auton shouldn't be Taikon; Taikon seems to be more of a cutting edge tech company, while mining autons would be common, industrial te...
