Re: A Freespace based Browser game (ingame Language is german)
Thanks a lot!
Some ships were added by us later. The GTCa Kottos (the ship in the picture) is a Special-Ops carrier with a small hangar capacity, but good propulsion and good hiding abilities.

But you will also find many well known freespace space ships. :)

Re: A Freespace based Browsergame (ingame Language is german)
Hey guys,

the development of Drifting Souls 2 has progressed massively in the last few months. That's why I would like to point out once again our (exclusively German language) browser game.
We now have improved combat and trading systems as well as a whole new way of operating, mining.  There are new and newly weighted spaceships, extended in-game tutorials and all in all the game entry was made easier.

We have a lot of other plans that we want to implement in the next days, weeks and months. We invite everyone to try out our browser game based on the narration of freespace computer games. Our community is happy to help you with advice and support, both when it comes to game-related things and if you are perhaps not a native German speaker. Try it out and give Drifting Souls 2 a chance! Just a reminder: Our game is 100% free and contains no paid content or advertising.

On this way we would like to say that we would be happy to welcome new developers, designers, graphic artists or other voluntary supporters at any time.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me here!



PS: Sorry for my bad English!

Re: A Freespace based Browsergame (ingame Language is german)
Do you have any plans for expanding the user base by making an english interface atleast?

Re: A Freespace based Browsergame (ingame Language is german) (Browserspiel)
Hello,

no, currently we do not have these plans, because the demand for them is simply too small. Besides, a multilingual "writing RPG" like the one we have in our game might be rather counterproductive.

Nevertheless, I don't want to rule out a multilingual interface, at least if there is a bigger demand. I could also imagine that this could work with an add-on or a mod.

But now I will ask our developers about this topic.

Re: A Freespace based Browsergame (ingame Language is german)
Our developers are currently investigating the possibility of implementing an in-game translation feature.
I will contact you if such an implementation is feasible or planned.

Until then, I can recommend browser add-ons, e.g. this one:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/traduzir-paginas-web/?src=search

These add-ons conveniently translate the game to any language. Thus it is playable even for native English speakers.

We have explained here how and to what extent you can play Drifting Souls in other languages::

you're welcome!  :)

If there is enough demand, we will probably translate more wiki tutorials as well.

Re: A Freespace based Browsergame (ingame Language is german)
A lot has changed - and in a short time!

After the Vasudan Empire destroyed an outpost of the Galactic Terran-Vasudan Republic and the Neo-Terran Front launched an attack on the Republic's main planet, Thatrel, the Republic fought back:

In a massive attack, the former home worlds of the Neo-Terrans and the Vasudan Empire were conquered by the Republic. Since then, the Neo-Terrans and the Empire have new headquarters in the star system Rho Carinae.

At the same time several new jump nodes were discovered, which seem to lead to several new star systems. Large alliances as well as small settlers have already started exploring and are now starting their colonization.

Take advantage of this favourable moment, get into your spaceship and join the browser game "Drifting Souls 2"!

Latest message from the DriftingSouls weather service!  :p

We wish you all nice winter days. If all this is too cold and stormy for you, you can have a look at our SciFi browser game from the comfort of your warm couch!

Reminds me of Space Federation - Galactic Conquest. Though I have to admit the fully German interface would be problematic for it to be used.

Re: A Freespace based Browsergame / how to play on English

Yes, the basic language of our game is German. However, we have written a tutorial on how to play the game in English.

This is not complicated at all, as you might think at first sight. If the demand for an English translation is higher, we can also think about a game-integrated translation. However, since we are a small indie team, we first want to see if there is enough interest to make the effort worthwhile.

The fact is, you can still play the game in English with the tutorial, and if you have any questions or problems, our community will be there to help. :)

Re: A Freespace based Browsergame (ingame Language is german)
Hello folks,

we are still there and we are constantly developing our game. In the distant future we have an immense overhaul of the combat system coming up, in the short term you can look forward to our Christmas event.
Maybe some of you would like to go into space during the cold season to build a new star empire from a barren asteroid. Jump into the 100% free* browser game Drifting Souls 2!  Terran or Vasudan?

* Yes, you won't find a single way to spend money on us. We are a team of volunteers only. We are a pure team of volunteers and instead of money we are happy to have new players!

Oh no, I would have been very interested to know what your opinion of the game would have been, even more so as an English speaker. :(

Re: A Freespace based Browsergame (ingame Language is german)
Hello people!  :D

In order to make it easier for English or non-German speaking players to participate in Drifting Souls 2, we have started an English wiki, which is still under development. Nevertheless, it already has a good base of articles.

I would like to point out once again that Drifting Souls 2 is a browser game. Although it is not originally available in English, many browsers (e.g. Google Chrome) offer built-in translation software or allow translation add-ons (e.g. Mozilla).

With these it is relatively easy to participate in the game even without knowledge of German. In addition, our community is available for help and advice.

The English Drifting Souls Wiki can be found at this link: https://drifting-souls.fandom.com/wiki/Drifting_Souls_Wiki
A short tutorial for translating the game can be found there: https://drifting-souls.fandom.com/wiki/Drifting_Souls_2_in_English.

And finally a few screenshots:
