UAS Ships

UAS Ships

When I started Transcendence many years ago, my 3D modelling skills were, to put it kindly, limited. I've improved somewhat since then and often go back and redesign some of my earlier ships. Playtesting has also revealed game-balance problems on several ships, early ones in particular. For the upcoming 1.2 release I've redesigned and rebalanced some of the UAS ships used by outlaws. The image above shows some new and old designs to scale (the bar on the lower-right is marked in meters).

Corporate Command

5 August 2013

A Manticore flies along side a Svarog-class cruiser.

In about two months, if all goes according to plan, I will release Corporate Command, the first paid expansion for Transcendence. This new expansion focuses on the Corporate Hierarchy and includes dozens of new features:

  • Three new player ship classes, including Makayev's famous Manticore class
  • New missions for the Corporate Hierarchy, including a few with Kate Morgental
  • Several new star systems and three new enemy sovereigns
  • And of course, lots of new armor, weapons, and treasures

In the coming weeks I'll talk more about Corporate Command and preview some of its features, but today I want to show off the teaser image above. The image depicts a Manticore heavy gunship flying along side Makayev's Svarog-class cruiser. Though not nearly as elegant as Rasiermesser's Corporate Cruiser, the Svarog can match it in firepower. It carries an array of heavy guns, including the giant Mark VII howitzer.

Transcendence 1.1

I am happy to direct you all to the download button for Transcendence 1.1, the latest stable release of our favorite Nethack-meets-Star-Control-space-RPG.

I've spend the time since 1.0 working on two main things in Transcendence: First, I've made dozens of major improvements to the modding system (more on that later), and second, I've developed and deployed the Multiverse, an online system for players to share game epitaphs and rank themselves by high score.
