Re: Trust me! I am a(n) [space] engineer!
Isn't that pretty much a given for every building game ever invented.

I think that's a reference to "every new ship looks like a giant penis" which is a phase we went through some years ago.

An example on how HLP modding used to be hilarious.

Shrike is a dirty dirty admin, he's the destroyer of souls... oh god, let it be glue...

The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

I'm following this one carefully, especially since I'm building a gaming computer this month. It's from the Miner Wars team though, so I'm somewhat skeptical.

Looking around the web i found this little game, i think nobody post it and looks funny and curious.

http://www.spaceengineersgame.com/

Space Engineers is a sandbox game about engineering, construction and maintenance of space works. Players build space ships and space stations of various sizes and utilization (civil and military), pilot ships and perform asteroid mining.

Space Engineers utilizes a realistic volumetric-based physics engine: all objects can be assembled, disassembled, damaged and destroyed.

Re: Trust me! I am a(n) [space] engineer!
I've already got my must-build list. And I've started on that with this little beauty as a tribute to Inferno. BEHOLD, ladies and gentlemen! A loose recreation on the EAF Claymore MK I from INFR1!

It's not perfect. Oddly portioned, some 'bits' missing or in odd places, etc etc. But given what is currently possible in the engine and how difficult that model actually is to recreate completely, I'd say I did alright on this one. Was a beauty to try flying too. The problem with this interpretation, as I would sadly find out, was the missile pods -- firing the missiles blew the entire ship up!  :lol:

Enjoy ;)

That looks funny  :lol:

For sure you don´t approve the engineering career   :D

 
Re: Trust me! I am a(n) [space] engineer!
Oh I approve engineering, all right! ;) Engineering the old classics that have graced freespace for a decade and a half. I should've started off on an easier model like the Hercules or Medusa, but oh well. Claymore gets it first for soooooooo many reasons.

Re: Trust me! I am a(n) [space] engineer!
I built the GTF Ulysses
I then proceeded to fly it
It doesn't handle nearly as well as the Freespace counterpart, but damn can that thing roll (many gyros, so fun)

Multiplayer is fun as all hell though.

I'll see what I can do. It's a Mk. 1 so it's for starters, blocky as hell and resembles vaguely the Ulysses
Image here though

Re: Trust me! I am a(n) [space] engineer!
Ok, so I mistakenly posted something about SE in another thread, but since everyone here's already familiar with the game, here's the gist of what I said:

I've got a Steam group up for more FS, FS2, and user-made FSOpen campaign ships.  Link here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/h-r_corp

Anyone interested?  HLP members get priority on officer and moderator positions.  Oh, and admins/"Of The Year" award winners get overall first dibs.  Group's public until there's a significant number of people.

Oh, and I found some really nice ships:

GTD Galatea (ugly colors, but it's the most faithful recreation of an Orion of the 2 that I saw)

GTF Atalanta
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=215916853

GTC Fenris (the Orff?) and an Apollo wing (absolutely fantastic! Best FS recreation on the Workshop, IMHO)
