Avorion's latest update features more combat and a faster paced gameplay

We're happy to tell you that the latest demo update 0.8.5 for Avorion is now out!

This time we mainly concentrated on fulfilling the one expectation that our Kickstarter should have created: A focus on combat. We also made adjustments to the UI, so now every time something's wrong with your ship you'll get a little icon popping up telling you what's wrong and how to fix it.

Lasers

Lasers are a strong medium ranged weapon, but they consume energy.

Lasers are finally available in the latest demo! As weapons with medium range and high damage they're the perfect tool for close-up space combat. In contrast to chainguns, laser shots arrive at your aimed position immediately and don't have to fly there, which makes them easy to aim and perfect for situations where you have to shoot an enemy and evade their projectiles at the same time. Just keep in mind that laser turrets use up energy, and once your battery is empty they won't do any more damage.

Faster Gameplay

The entire gameplay of Avorion has a faster pace now, ships are faster, weapons are stronger

While watching other people play the previous versions of the game we quickly realized that the gameplay was too slow. Flying times between stations were very long, and combat didn't feel right. We've upped the base speed of ships from 50 m/s to 75 m/s and the max speed by 50%, shortening flight times between stations and asteroids tremendously.

Aside from that, we increased the weapon damage by a swift 100%. Fights are shorter and more fun, and you have to be a little smarter about flying into that pile of enemies.

Super Action Mode

In the Super Action Mode players are attacked by neverending waves of enemies.

Finally, we implemented a new, demo-exclusive game mode for Avorion: The Super Action Mode. In the Super Action Mode players are placed in fully-equipped and combat-ready ships, with crews, system upgrades and laser turrets. Every player gets tons of starting resources that he can either use to repair or extend his ship. After a brief delay, large waves of enemies will start attacking. Players have to defend their positions as long as they can. Like everything in Avorion, this mode can be played in single- and co-op multiplayer, so bring your friends!

Support Avorion on Kickstarter

Avorion has been developed with our private funds so far. We want to make the game our job and bring it to its full potential, but for that we need your help! Support Avorion on Kickstarter and help us make the game more than just a demo.

Download the Demo

The demo is available for Windows and Ubuntu Linux. You can download it from the IndieDB site here or from the official website.

I don't know yet. If there will be, it will be in a rather distant future, I'm afraid.

this game is really cool. But for some reason, im using the launcher, and i cant see how much resources and credits i have, i only see ---. Is there another way to see the resources i have, or how do i fix the problem?

The --- means you have infinite resources. Make sure not to check the "infinite resources" check box when starting a game.

If you want to fix it, you can either
- start a new game, or
- edit the serversettings.xml file in your p;pdata%\Avorion\[SaveGameNameHere]\ folder.

Oh and dude, make smaller resolutions, like 800 - 600.

Why do you need such low resolutions? The menus and HUD elements get messed up at such low resolutions. If you really want it though, and your device supports it, you can always set it manually in the settings.xml.
