WIP: Characters, new crafting resources and minor changesSubscribe to RSS

June 08, 2018

Are you ready for another portion of work-in-progress news, Commanders? The time has come to show you some curious things we are currently working on and lift the veil on other upcoming features:

Characters


Let's start over with a portion of always-good-and-great news: as our artists continue creating characters for Starfall Tactics, a lot of new things appear. So today we are ready to share the first look of customizable character model: that's a default character model which we both will use to create story characters and plan to give you as something you will be able to create your own character from somewhere in the bright future.

As you can see here, we've already created several outfits which can be easily identified as faction clothes - strict Vanguard uniform, high-tech Eclipse costumes and Deprived clothing. Of course, they can be available in different color schemes. Also, hairs became one of the recent additions for 3D characters in Starfall Tactics and we hope that you will love its' epic look ;)

New crafting resource: Emitters


Along with extending Starfall Tactics contents and adding new features, we are going to improve crafting system and make it even more interesting and diverse. There are a lot of plans and great things to do for crafting (and we will, of course, tell you about it in the next news articles) and among all, of course, there will be much more different resources in the game - the first one to appear in the game is Emitter.

 

                       

 

Emitters are a crafting resource, used to create certain categories of ship equipment. There are four types of emitters: Ion, Neutron, Photon and Proton - each of them can be included as an ingredient for a recipe - for example, Photon Emitter can be used to create Photon weapons or any other related equipment. This resource won't drop from pirates: instead, it will be a thing you can acquire by salvaging certain items - and well, that's another curious topic for the next news articles;)

Other changes


There are always a bunch of minor changes to come with all global things we are talking about here - so here are three of them for you to check today:

  • Ships which are in a nebula will be visible for other ships, even if they are not in the nebula, at 1000m range - To escape these strange situations when you stay close to another ship in a nebula but can't see it
  • The long-awaited feature is back to Starfall Tactics ship editor: Now you can zoom in ships in the ship editor and enjoy their great detailed look!
  • Pushing Space button moves the camera to your fleet when you are in the MMO mode - so now you can quickly come back to your fleet even if you are looking at a different system.

See you next week!
