Alpha 5 [0.5.5] Dev Status: Pre-Release Post

Finally the planetary survey comes to an end tonight.
I just need to update the interface to show updates about survey progress, when it's needed, and that's all.

FARC Alpha 5 will be released during the weekend of March 30/31 and a new video, explaining how works the resource survey, will be uploaded this same weekend.

It has been a hell of a work as usual but it's nothing compared to what's coming in the next releases.

Stay tuned for this release, and, I don't say it enough, but thanks to all of you that follow silently and less silently the progress of this project.

  3. Hell yeah ! I'll be waiting for the download link to pop on the site so I can get it and play the game. I'm really curious as to how the game looks and feels with all these updates cause I haven't played it for some time now.

    1. Don't expect big things yet, a lot of features aren't here and the user's interface is far to be 100% usable. But bricks by bricks...
      For now you can build/assemble infrastructures, do a resource survey and even die (at least people of your colony can). You can also colonize and do interplanetary transit.
      The interface lack of many information feedbacks to the player, especially for infrastructures building/assembling, but nothing that will not be done with time.
      Please, note how my marketing about this game is so perfect, haha < / ironic > :)
      As I said, after this alpha, the big chunk will arrive: the universe generator including the first completed star and planetary systems (that's for the alpha 6), the research & development system, the space units design system, the combat system, the trading system, some AI, some foreign relation management, some game and "historical" events... and we will be in 2015 if all goes OK, the game continues to run on Windows, and if I'm alive yet lol.
