Wing FX - sci-fi arcade flying game
Hi
I made this sci-fi arcade flying game (physics multiplayer game) made in Unreal Engine 4.
The golden days for them: 1994-2001 - Descent, Crimson skies, starlancer, X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, Freespace and of course Wing Commander.

I miss those games, so I have to make them meself. I then tried and got this little alpha out of it.
Support / follow me at https://ko-fi.com/mnj3d where you can also buy access to the alpha.
LAN only, then you can try it against friends, brother, sister or girl/boyfriend and it is only Windows version - Keyboard and mouse.
Netcode is what I have a hard time with, so could be cool and get some support for it.

I have only made the core functions, and the visual must come later, Probably also what come most easily to me. Work with 2D and 3D.

Come with Feedback, ideas and more here + that would be where the news probably comes first.

Small preview - 4 min gameplay, the rest is just info. - sound on

I will be happy too see you on ko-fi, youtube or discord.

what is your favorite scifi flying game?

Man just from that trailer, there's at least two projects that really could have used you like 10 years ago...

The flight mechanics look pretty solid, I like how floaty the ships are, like Homeworld.

And for engagements sake, it should come as no surprise that my favorite scifi flying game is Freespace 2. If you're looking for something fun, try Diaspora: https://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?board=175.0

Re: Wing FX - sci-fi arcade flying game
Thank you.

I think the flight mechanics is solid I made it back in 2007. UE2 mod and 2011 UDK. have been tested many times... :)
Freespace 2 is gold and I love it also and miss a new version of it...

Diaspora have I play. Awesome and wonderfully well done.
Battlestar Galactica serie is a masterpiece.

buy alpha for 5 %u20AC is it too much, should I just give it for free?  ;)

I'm most impressed by the AI's collision avoidance.

What are you using for telling it to do the gliding/banking and avoidance?

A raycast setup for collisions?

There is no AI, I play both - record gameplay - playback and fly after it.

You can try it here for free - 2 maps(under host menu) - LAN with friends.:
