Background History

So one day... I was sitting on a random chair in a random school. My teacher said that he like my little 'space game' and he said something about galaxy's and planets, which really caught me! I don't remember the exact things but it triggered some thoughts of mine. All sorts of ideas kept coming to me: Self made galaxy's, planet core's, multiplayer compatible, web player, and so much more! So when I got home, I wondered if I could even do this with my Coding knowledge :S Well, that's for you to find out Everyone from JavaBuckets will be working on this so lets get codin' n' texturin'!


Information

On to the features of this beauty!

This game is in early development which a lot of you might find, well... irritating, and I get you! There is a lot of these un-done games on Planetminecraft and they all promise it will be out soon with cool features and sh*t :S

Well first of all we are not going to let you know it will be done soon, because it won't. Games takes time to make, maybe at some point in summer 2014 or spring it'll be done, but not even that can be promised! But the cool thing about it, is that we will be uploading Development builds for everyday so you can see how it develops throughout the time!

The actual game features will be something like this: http://javabuckets.wordpress.com/



Pictures and Images

The Planet: "Xeldo"



Spaceship View (When flying around the space, only spaceship model as of yet, gotta work on more models!)



Landed on Xeldo and this is the Player's view (First Person but, will be changeable)



Credits and other stuff

This game is made in Unity, coded with C# and the models are made with 3ds Max Autodesk. We do not own any of these programs/applications and the developers takes full credit for those.

This game is made by JavaBuckets, we are a small group (company) and hope to grow big in the future by making applications and games!


Development Team:

Head Developer on the game: Thom, Leader of JavaBuckets

Head Modeller on the game: Thom, Leader of JavaBuckets

Head Texturer on the game: Nack, Member of JavaBuckets

Head Artwork on the game: Josh, Member of JavaBuckets

Andreas will maybe be working on the game too, Seb just gives out ideas! xD

I've been following your star wars mod for a while and this seems cool just downloaded and trying it now

Edit: Neat! I like it. May I suggest adding a forest planet sorta like Endor?

Well if you need any ship models i can spare some too, i have a forum account on another site that has an entire database of ships and models. I usually submit my models there. if you want a specific i can help make it.

We are our own sponsors, we got so many contacts with so many people that, that shouldn't be hard. If you are willingly to do this for free then of course we wouldn't thank no!

So do we! It would be awesome to have this go popular! after this game is done we will work on mainly horror games for the Oculus rift because that's what the future lays in, in my opinion.

nope, there will much more than that building your own galaxy, with its own planets, with your own specie or life form or whatever you want to make! Maybe something like in-game modelling so you can add your own simple houses or structures. But when its all set and done, there will be a big range of different models to choose from in order to create the city or planet that you want! Look forward to all this in the year of 2014!

The trader is first of all, not going to be the engineer from BF3 second of all hes not gonna be standing in the middle of everything but inside a shop. Yes looking up and down will be possible xD also going from First Person to Third Person and much much more! And don't worry, questions are good! if you got more questions, speak up!

Might !? Do it man xD its in early stages but I think we are actually going pretty fast! soon it will be a functional game that will be a bit fun to play, then when everything planned is added (maybe first in spring or summer of 2014) it will be one of those games you just wake up and log on to you pc to play xD (hopefully )

I'd rather a ship creator like KSP, the starmade ship creator doesn't really work in a non voxel game.

Also, are those models being used in .obj format?

If they are I can lend you this for a ship model:

Uhmm KSP :3 I don't know what that is but we will come up with something :S something without thinking or comparing to other games.

Uhm no, the models are imported with .max (3ds max autodesk) but .obj files works fine too I guess xD feel free to send in models and we might add them if they're good enough and we feel like having something made with them (all this will first be added when all the game physics are in place!)

! not bad! not bad at all! good idea dude! WILL be implemented xD along with a store to buy different parts for your spaceship, I will probably work on the stored soon because the take time even though they're easy and I want to get all the main concept stuff done asap so players can enjoy playing the game! Please, feel free to let your ideas pop out of your head like crazy xD
