Default Battleships Forever 0.9 (Epic Edition!)

Behold! Some talented programmers from the Wyrdysm community have been working with th15 to produce a new version of Battleships Forever that goes far above anything imagined before - indeed, beyond what Sean thought was possible to accomplish with the game engine!

A few of the many changes:
  • Rotation
  • Moving Sections
  • Triggers
  • Custom Sprite Importing
  • Direct Control

Check it out!

EriErin:




Hege:


Venator (myself):

I still haven't tries this out yet. I think that I may download it once I reload my computer.

It's a damn shame I gave up using this i had some nice ships in development at one point now I seem to have lost the files. The new moving parts would have been a really nice addition. May have to start again ;D.

The large weapons on the wind look a bit too stretched and the necks a bit thin but otherwise fantastic ship. I've been having a little bit of a play around on the new shipmaker and must say it's nice having more options.

Meh.

I don't like BSF because the combat's too short-range and too restricted. Unless they've seriously expanded both: the maps, and the player's ability to scroll out, I don't think it's possible to implement these ships in any meaningful way.

Then again, I stopped playing last year, so I could be wrong.

Either way, my main beef with this is that the two-dimensional game world only allows for wide and long ships, and my imaginary ships tend to be of the vertical configuration.

Once they come out with something like this for Homeworld, then I'll bite.

Or, I could just start playing EVE again.

Bleh, what I get for typing tired.

Ment your ship.
