Gratuitous Space Battles

|

Follow 273

A strategic management game, best described as a sci-fi tower defence game with moving spaceships and configurable units. Design your own ships from a series of hulls+modular components, group the ships into a fleet, give the fleet orders and positions and then watch it engage in OTT gratuitous space battles against enemy fleets.

So when mr bannon talks about 'going to war', he means running a website. Thats not fighting in a war. Thats a safe, quiet desk job.

Animation frames in PL are split into 64 chunks for compression, but all 64 chunks can easily share one texture pointer!

Ha! Props are drawn 40% faster now in production line. Silly mistake where i was setting texture pointers for each 1/64th of an animation

I do wonder about revealing some of my source code and crowdsourcing optimisation ideas.

Anyone who did a degree in economics likely knows way more on topic than celebrity experts when out of their field.

The idea that people accomplished in one field are clever in all fields needs to die. Stephen Hawking, Stephen Fry, TV historians etc.

    Nice game, all the DLCs seem to work on Linux as well. Just need a trick first though, got to convert all the BMP and DDS files to JPEG and PNG (this also helps witht he white screen bug).**

    There are still some issues like using registration code to play the campaign in some cases. Other than that the game is fine.

    Is there a way to know which version Desura provides? The latest should be 1.60.

    So I bought the game from GSB's official website, but I can't get a shortcut here for the mods. Help, please?

      check the Positech forums, there is a linux support section and a topic dealing about this.

      For the DLC, I made a script to install them in Linux (no Windows nor Wine needed). You can find it on the Positech forum.
