This is one of the best games I have ever played. Cant wait for updates!
Oh, I'm so glad you like it. :) Going to do a post in the next few days with the plans for the next ~2 updates.
I've had a bunch of fun already playing the game. I'm surprised at the depth that seems to be in there already. There's still a couple things I gotta figure out before I feel like I can play it properly, (e.g.: ships with supposedly enough lift seem to drop at the start of the combat, destroying ships below it) but I'm rooting for ya!
I am not sure what thread to put this in, but do the other cities attack you in the campaign. Because why do you need defenses if you aren't going to get attacked?
Ghanzka: Check if they have enough crew. It's possible the coal doesn't get delivered to the suspendium chambers on time.
Really enjoying the game so far, it works very well for where it's at! Keep up the great work!
Releasing a video of the game tomorrow :D
Oo, link plz! (I should do a YT embed feature for the forum, come to think of it).
For floating rocks, how did they get out of the ground in the first place? :P
Suspendium, or to call it by its full name, Suspending Disbeliefium. :D
This game is so awesome! Keep up the good work! Don't give up!!
Don't worry, I am working on it. :) Right now there's a bit of a boring patch where I rewrite things, but that'll soon be over and you'll see new features.
This is where I got the game from. This guy is pretty good
When can we expect to see the boring patch? I wouldn't mind having the campaign mode a bit more balanced and better.
Is this dead? Nobody is ever on multiplayer.
AFAIK it is pretty alive, but coordination of multiplayer games just never seems to work very well. My suggestion is to go on the multiplayer topic and poke people. Also, I can totally fight you, and have put myself down into some timeslots over the next few days. :)
The multiplayer scheduler does not appear to work for me, It takes me to your website, to a page with a rather large error report.
I see! Could you please post this error report? It works fine for me on all the machines I've tried on, so I would be very grateful!
It works fine now, sorry I could not get back to you earlier.
The painting update is cool, You thinking of adding some kind of filtering/ban list for certain ships. I have already made some interesting Sky Dicks and a Gigantic Flying Swastika. It's even easier to be offensive by painting ships.
I don't really intend on actually posting these, or playing multiplayer with them for the matter just testing out the stupid shit I can make.
I am yet to play a multiplayer game, well an online one anyway. I invited one of my friends over to play it but he did not want to buy it. (I ended up just giving him my game files and he was able to play). It was sorta okay, One of my largish ships collided with one of his, which in turn collided with something else, resulting in an infinite collision loop which really sucked the performance out of both machines (two i7 laptops). It stopped once the offending ship promptly exploded.
Also, another side note I forgot to add, after a game of multiplayer via lan, we could not immediately start another one, doing so would result in a blank and unplayable battle (this sometimes happens in campaign).
Zarkonnen is this game dead or is it just taking a long time for a big update? I can't wait to test out the boarding combat, as you wrote about, do you have a time frame ??
Taking a long time for a big update, don't worry. :) See the dev blog for development news. Time frame for the next version coming out: end of the week. I'm really just running around fixing embarrassing bugs.
oh my non-existent god, version 5.0 is great, good job
(ps. the newest on the mainmenu is not updated it say 4.2 :))
Ah, it has been quite a while since being here. After trying out the newest version I am just full of joy because of how great it is (I have missed a few updates) So keep up the good work and maybe now that I am starting to free up again I will be available for some multiplayer!

Hey Zark! Just wanted to say that I have just jumped back into the game after playing several versions ago. Can't wait to try out espionage and boarding and all the fun new stuff! The early campaign I played was pretty rough but showed lots of promise!
Excited to play, thanks for all you do!
Game is now listed on Twitch.tv as a playable game!
Is this thread still being used?
Good point - have updated the status at the top.
So, the next update will be coming out within the next three days?
Er, so what is the status of the game? (currently)
Updated the status sticky!
Cool... So nothing more than bug fixes?
I'd say they're in demand at the moment; the next update will no doubt be a quick-patch. After that holds untold mysteries.
Yep, next update is a patch, then more new stuff in 9.2. :)
Here's my two cents about the beta so far
Biplanes should prioritize shooting down other planes before shooting airships. That's it!
Biplanes do prioritise intercepting and shooting down other planes, but triplanes don't. (Certainly that's the intent.)
Also, please familiarise yourself with the code of conduct. I have deleted a bunch of comments that did not follow it.
Now I understand "interceptTroops" a little better.
That's an interesting effect.
See, the Triplane wont target other planes period (or often?), set to false, because planes ARE troops. It's the only example of this at the moment and haven't fully tested it; await official before casting keystrokes.
I say "or often" because "shootTroopsRange" is present.
Range will likely have interesting effects on your planes priorities as well, if attempting to create your own. It's essentially their "AI Sight Line", who to pick. The Troop modifier and Ship modifier can be different; meaning a plane could target a troop before targeting a craft.
Leads to more interesting effects in conjunction with "isMachine" if you really put the imagination to use.
...barring Twitter. There's some pretty unscrupulous characters on that platform.
ah, sorry... i havent familliarized myself with the code of conduct untill now, and it was very late, and sombrero and i have had some issues in cooperation lately, which led to me ultimately leaving our "ww2 Planes" mod, i will follow the code from now on.
and also, thank you for deleting my comment, Zark, i felt bad about posting it and guilty about it ever since i posted it xD
Thanks psy, I will set the intercept troop range higher and see if the planes go out of their way to shoot planes that are further away.
Yup can confirm. Set their Shoot troop range higher and they will hunt down other planes even if they are further away.
