Pantropy is a science-fiction based multiplayer game for players who want to make their own story. You’ll need to band together to thrive in this lush and dangerous world. Luckily, there are factions just waiting to welcome you into their ranks. Are you going to grind resources and craft a powerful mech? Or maybe you’d prefer to set up a mining station to do the hard work for you and hunt down enemy factions instead.

Unity update, a lot of new content and much progress!

We finally got the long awaited Unity 2017.2 update. This includes a crucial fix BUT came with a whole lot of other issues. We´ve already spent a few days fixing these.

Code

Julian has started implementing freezing, scoping, idling and priority calculation into the Pantropy multipalyer system. This will boost the networking performance and allow us to have many more players. 128 player per server is the goal!

We have also polished the weapon system and brought back the assault rifle, pistol, sniper rifle, rocket launcher and railgun. The networking of the bullets still cause a few issues, but we hope to get these solved within the next couple of days.

Player turrets are also a thing again! You can craft these and place them on your base. They will attack players from the opposite faction, AI faction mobs and hostile creatures.

Lootcrates are also back! You can find data sets and useful items.

The anti-offline-raid-system is now working. You can go offline and your base is safe. But don´t go offline during a raid. That won´t safe your base :)

Julian has written a nice tool that allows us to calculate the ratio of ores that we should scatter on the map based on the crafting recipes that are ingame.

Oh and drones are back! They use the same system as the mechs. You can equip upgrades, armor and different weapons.

Concept Art

Tyson has finished more artwork for the enemy faction bases.

Enemy bases grow over time and become more difficult to raid. Loot will become more valuable though.

We´re going to replace the remote charge placeholder with a proper model. Tyson has made a few designs.
