Farlight Explorers is a 3D space-sandbox game, made for space exploration, science fiction, resource management and action fans. In this game you can build your own base or spaceship totally customizable and explore the galaxy.

When you start the game you choose a planet to start from the hundreds out there in the galaxy map. Once on the planet you have to extract resources to begin building a base that provides you with the items to survive like food and others.

Laser Drill, Singularity Gate, New Conduits and New Machines Update

This update add a lot of new machines and products to the game. Also it add the Singularity Gate, The Laser Drill and more conduits like the Splitter.

Singularity Gate

Singularity Gate, the last building machine that the players has to build in order to come back home and finish the game. The Singularity Gate still in progress but soon the player could complete it. The player first has to build it in the center of the galaxy near of the black hole. Is the unique possible place. Once the foundation is built, the player will have to add more resources to the Gate, so the Gate could add automatically more parts.

Gate1

When the Gate is finished, the player could go to the center of the Gate and return home and finish the game. The last part still in progress.

Gate2

Laser Drill

LaserDrill1

The Laser Drill and other first person objects. We have a 3d model for the laser and a PDA and we will have more objects. Now extract resources from the vein is easier, because the ore will go to the player, so the player only has to extract all the mineral that need to work.

LaserDrill2

New Factories

New Factories. A long list of new factories that the player will need for creating new products. The goal of the new products is the building of the Singularity Gate. The Gate needs some special products and the player has to add this products to advance in the next part of the Gate. It still improvement, however the main idea is developed and now it needs to be polished.

NewFactories2

New Conduits

New Conduits. With the new conduits, the player could build factories in different levels of altitude. The idea is to compress the factories, because in the future the building area will be limited. With the splitter, the player could design easier the production lines.
