Hi everybody !
I came across Diaspora at the end of last year! as a BSG fan i must
admit i'm blued by what you did with!
so, if i understood correctly, it is still in development?
despite all, I still noticed some big flaws in its development,
in particular with the balancing of the stas of the weapons and the ships.
yes, given that BSG is more realistic and nervous than Star Wars, for example,
I overhauled the stats with performances set on those of our current fighters!
for a very nervous gamelay!
I was able to do it thanks to the fact that you have them the excellent idea to put an assistance
however, I noticed a few shortcomings:
=> shooting assistance is not active for the multi ...
which makes the game, with my balancing, unplayable ... so, it would be good if you could
implement it for multi, thank you
=> for the physics engine of the game, 5 very important mechanics are missing:
-be able to shoot cannons by strafant.
- be able to shoot cannons in strafant, with the "glide" mode active.
-It lacks the armor for ships, and the penetration rate of armor for weapons.
- it lacks linear acceleration / deceleration, and srtafe for missiles.
-and all a bunch of possible improvements for the HUD ...
these are some of my ideas for the HUD:http://modsimul.spatiales.free.fr/galerie-star-citizen-hud.html
I would also like to point out that I have completely modified a 12ne of space combat games;
in which I revised all the flight statistics of ships and weapons,
wedged on those of current hunters, and more; my goal, being to make these games a lot
more nervous and realistic!
(on average, maneuverability between x2 and 3, acceleration x2 / 3, speed x1.5 / 2 ...)
So I know how to go about balancing this type of game properly!
I modified the following games:
- Independence War 2 - Edge of Chaos
- Wing Commander Prophecy
- X-Wing Alliance
- FreeSpace conflict
- Conflict FreeSpace 2
- Wing Commander Saga
- BSG Diasopra
- Independence War 2 - Edge of Chaos Demo
- Wing Commander Saga Prologue Demo
- BattleStar Galactica - Beyond the Red Line Demo
here are my personal mods (totally free):http://modsimul.spatiales.free.fr
Here is my Youtube channel:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZZje2IuV7aLRUi7eTQ-Jgw
You will find demonstrative and comparative videos between the following games:
Independence War, Independence War 2, BattleStar Galactica - Beyond the Red Line Demo
and Star Citizen.
I offer my help (if you don't mind) with stats balancing and design
of the HUD, (and possibly its graphics; yes, I am a graphic designer
there you go, thank you in advance!
