Can I use these?

Hi all. :)
It's been a bit quit here(apart from some posts by me and The_Bear).
So here's a small update:
Lots of things have been added to the upcomming 0.3 version.
Currently I'm working on adding the first basic version of world generation,
What it will do, is just add a bunch of (dumb)AI controlled ships to random sectors.
So we can at least try out some basic coop PvE action.
I have removed almost all the ships from the basic pack, and added the ones that were provided by NarnKar and The_Bear.
I've somewhat split them between the new races, and for the Pirate ships I have created some(32) default layouts.
These layouts will be used by the world generator.

Hope that people haven't lost interest in the project yet. :)

When do you think the next version will be done?

Thanks. :)

Hopefully by the end of the week.


Small update:
The world generator is working, but adding ships to 1000x1000 sectors, at least 1 per sector will take around 20 hours :?
So I have reduced the default size of the universe to 300x300, so that makes 90000 sectors.
But still filling all of them takes about 2 hours.
Ofcourse in later versions I will think of a way to improove this.
Also it is not a default option to fill all sectors with ships.
But for now I think it will have to do, - spend 1-2 hour for generating an MMO like server.

Why not 50% of chance to find a random ship when you arrive in a system ?
You could let the server spawn it if the rand roll is positive.
Like FTL, we don't encounter a ship in each system, and it could be more light for the server than fill each system with a ship no ? :oops:

Yes, this is something I was thinking on how to improve the issue.
But I will need to plan and balance this out.

And for now, so that the alpha 0.3 is not delayed even more, I will leave it as it is.

Probably this will go into alpha 0.4.

There is basically just one big thing left to do before I can release alpha 0.3.(some code refactoring)
I really hope I will manage to do it this week, but I have some doubts.

Also, there were a couple of people offering to help with mob sprites.
Any luck on that?
