Re: Alpha 2 Preview

The research lab is now finished :-)
Here you can research so called "aspects" for each alien race. You have to collect extraterrestrial materials in outer space and get them to the research lab. When you have enough of them, you can research an aspect, which belongs to that race. This will unlock the according materials and pieces in the ship designer.
If you research all 4 aspects, the "World Level" increases by one, so you can construct buildings of the next level. On the lower levels you then have all materials available.

More minimap improvements:
Now every building has an icon in player color on the minimap, so you can find your own, allied, or enemy buildings more easily.

Here's a screenshot of the new ship context menu. It shows the current action the ship is doing, the capabilities of the ship and the health of the Core modules.

Re: Alpha 2 Preview

The game is now fully localized and will be available in german and english for the Alpha.
Furthermore we put a lot of work into the graphical improvement of the Skybox. In the background, a lot of improvements are happening, and we're working hard on the sound effects. But also coding and content continues, as we now have Level 2 complete! (All buildings + menus, ship designer, ships, ship modules)
On the second screenshot you can see the new shield effects for ships, which have the player color (ship shields are available at Level 2, too).

Re: Alpha 2 Preview

PVE- and PVP-lobbies incoming.
Players are able to create lobbies for PVP battles or cooperative PVE missions inside a server/map. They can play these together and then again of course use their self-constructed ships :-)
