A real-time strategy game where you design airships and then fight with them. The aim is to have pretty chaotic explodey fights and interesting ship design choices.
ForumsTwitterSite


Purchase includes future versions up to 1.0!


At its core, the game is about designing airships and fighting with them. Ships are put together out of modules, and the layout of modules matters a great deal: everything on board is done by individual airsailors who need to run around, ferrying coal, ammunition, water and repair tools - and sometimes their fallen comrades.

You can command fleets of airships both against the computer and against other players across the Internet.

In addition, there is a single-player strategic mode, where you use your fleet to conquer city after city, unlocking new modules and bonuses with each of them.

The game has an authentic-ish system of heraldry where you can create your own coat of arms, and register it with the game forums as unique to you.

When you're creating a new ship design, it's nice to be able to work quickly. Having to scroll through the list of modules is pretty tedious, which is why Airships has long had search for modules. In version 9.1, I've improved the search system, allowing you to get the exact module you want with very few keystrokes.

First off, you can activate search by hitting enter, and select the top search result by hitting enter again. So you can type Enter - some letters - Enter to quickly select a module.

The simplest way to search is by typing the start of the module name:


But in some cases, there's multiple modules that start the same way. What kind of large thing would you like?


So you can type multiple words matching the start of each word in the module name:


If you already started typing "sus", and now realize you wanted the *large* suspendium chamber, you can also search for the words in the name in a different order:




Of course, the module where your query is in the right order for the name will match first.

Finally, you can also search for module by abbreviation. Type out the starting letters of the words in the name as one word:


With a little bit of practice, this will let you select exactly the module you need without even having to glance at the left of the screen.

Are you planning on adding a map for Multiplayer? I have friends getting the game. Although it looks like they are waiting for another option besides paypal to pay with. .

The issue with making a MP map is that combats and strategy work at different timescales, so you'd spend a lot of time waiting for other peoples' fights. Not sure how to fix that.

Re: PayPal - what kind of payment method would they like? I totally understand that it's not exactly everyone's first choice. Am up for anything, including stuffing money into an envelope. :P

Great game. I've been playing since Dev2 and it gets better each time. It's a steal for only $5. Reminds me of the Total War games with it's campaign map.
