    Ok so a lot to get into. For starters, Version 3.0 will be the final demo release. That means it will remain on the website perpetually so players who are not apart of the closed beta can try out the game before considering to pitch in towards our hardware goal. It'll be a copy of the primary universe, minus the ability to permanently destroy Stations, Planets etc...

    Ok so that's about 3.0, what about version 3.1?

    Version 3.1 introduces a downloadable plugin that will solve two things:

    • Improve PVP Combat substantially by transmitting data over a UDP port. (Port: 7788)
    • Allow NPC data to be received blazingly fast.

    • For the time being the plugin is only available for the Windows OS (A Mac version is priority)

    I've been doing some heavy thinking on the topic of NPC pirates in game. But I could use some serious input from the community.

    • What's the story behind them?
    • Besides numbers, what makes them a scary sight?
    • What type of tactics will they employ?
    • What other types of special features will they have?

    Share your thoughts on in game NPCs in the comments.

This system allows players to engage in pvp without the added risk of losing ones ship and will assist with our ongoing combat against lag.

    • Deploy Station Button Formatting has been removed temporarily for debugging purposes.
