do you know a game like EV?
I've been looking for games like EV. Can anybody add to my list and maybe write a little about what they like and dislike about them? Doesn't have to be specifically a 2D space RPG, but the same look and feel as EV. cheers.
also, is there any interest within this community for an open source EV like that uses the current EVNova file format(.rez)? this would allow expansion of the format and other things like in game plugin loading/unloading, etc
nb. these are all still in development
transcendance is now 1.0
nice graphics, HUD doesn't look like it fits
not sure about how hard plugin making is: http://neurohack.com/transcendence/mods/index.html
plugin creation seems a bit difficult. a lot like EV. UI looks terrible
LNSU: its an open-source game with EV-like gameplay. Its far from finished, but is pretty good.
i never played ares much, the engine behind xsera looks good
LNSU: its a modernization of Ares to run on current computers. However, although its using various resources from ares, its not using any of the old ares code. It'll be a while before it does anything fun though. Unless you consider coding fun.
list continued with suggestions:
starsword: Only game I know of that's even remotely similar to EV is Starport, an MMORPG. I saw it on the forums here when I was starting out with EVN:UGF.
JoshTigerHeart: It's an online space* battler with many many different gametypes, such as CTF, king of the hill, dueling, hunts, hockey, etc. It was pretty fun, though it takes some getting used to each different server.
