The spin-off to Starpoint Gemini 2 introduces coveted strategic elements into the tactical space simulation that is the Starpoint Gemini franchise. Conquer territory, conduct research, scavenge for resources and defeat your enemies. In Warlords, think BIGGER! Bigger universe, bigger ships, bigger stations. Expect many tweaked features; the community has decided on what they want and now they are getting it!


New Features:

  • Headquarters. Construct and upgrade your own personal space station; a massive structure that enables you to conduct research, build ships, assemble autonomous fleets and much more.
  • Conquer Territory. Gradually expand your reign over unclaimed territory, by battling minor factions, or conquer the entire Gemini sector, by facing off against familiar strong Gemini foes, familiar from the previous Starpoint Gemini titles. Reinforce conquered regions to defend themselves.
  • Conduct Research on simple weapon enhancements, obtain the expertise to construct a titan class behemoth, or boost the effectiveness of your non-combat fleets. Equipment, ship systems, enhancements and ships can still be bought, but he best ‘stuff’ can only be researched, constructed and improved in your HQ.
  • Construction and research demand the allocation of resources. Gather them by conducting missions for other factions, trade or purchase resources, or conquer regions providing a steady flow of resources, and bonuses.
  • A far larger game world will allow more distinction between ship sizes, pockets of empty space to travel through and your own giant space HQ where ships can be ‘parked’.
  • Skill classes, attributed skills and perk progression will be revamped and rebalanced, as will levelling-up, the reputation system and diplomacy.
  • Storyline vs Free-roam: The campaign storyline will be blended in with the more generic conquer quests. Free-roam mode strips all main storyline missions, but leaves side quests and generic freelance missions intact.
  • A full branching dialogue scheme, the industry standard in modern RPGs.
  • Technical additions include: x64 system only, projection mapping, deferred shading, physically based rendering and realistic physics.

StarpointGeminiWarlords Screensh

Welcome to a different Gemini, captains.

As we announced in the recent upcoming changes announcement, there's a great deal of new things in today's update so let's get on with it...

Time for some planet-bustin'

Take over the planets of Gemini as you see fit. They can no longer magically resist your conquest. Have the Proxima on the ready and start collecting those marbles. Fifteen planets (not counting Phaeneros) are waiting for you to rule them with an iron fist. And this is only the beginning, the base layer of sorts. More variety and improvements can be expected with the next update. To take over planets you'll need...

...The Proxima!

StarpointGeminiWarlords Screensh 1

The most powerful destructive force in Gemini is now at your fingertips. You'll have to do some work to get to it, but it will be worth it!

I'll take that station, thank you

Bully the other factions into submission more than ever before! They have a station you want? Take it! ... Or don't... it's really up to you... We say Go for it!

StarpointGeminiWarlords Screensh 2StarpointGeminiWarlords Screensh 3

Return of the fan-favorite boarding

You liked boarding in our previous game? Great! Well, we've got something new for you today: boarding v2.0 is up and running! Time to make some on-site choices. Just target a ship and Deploy troops. The boys can then work their way up to the command bridge and capture the ship. Once you have control, you can freely decide what to do with your spoils of war: keep it for yourself, sell it off, scuttle it for resources, give it to your war fleets or let your scientists and engineers break it down into parts to learn how to recreate the ship themselves.

StarpointGeminiWarlords Screensh 4

Ask and ye shall receive! Behold the no-pause context menu!

I admit, it's not really a ground-breaking feature, but it was frequently requested. This is finally implemented and it is on by default. If you want things to be how they were, check the Options menu. We've got you covered.

The entire change-log is below, as usual.

And while we're at it, we've combined a video to celebrate a big milestone in Warlords production:

Until next time,

Safe travels and good hunting, captains!


Update v0.800 Change-log

FIXES

  • Fixed an error with the Ram skill that could crash the game.
  • You'll no longer get stuck in a wormhole loop where you repeatedly pass through it.
  • In some cases, the auto-pilot wouldn't deactivate Sublight on time. Now it does.
  • In some cases, your war fleet forgot that the vast cosmos actually has the third axis and a garrison can be up or down. They will no longer get confused in such instances.
  • Sometimes, you couldn't access the Ship panel while using keyboard + mouse. This no longer happens.
  • Fixed several text-related errors with displaying objectives.
  • Fixed a number of errors and glitches on the Loot panel.
  • You can no longer collect loot while flying in Sublight. Using sublight uses up all the available power.
  • In several instances, it was possible that hostile ships decided to become friendly. No more. You're beating them up. They don't like that.
  • Fixed several actual errors and potential problems with the Salvage freelance job.
  • In some fringe cases, the repair stuck on 96% problem could still happen. This is the case no longer.
  • There were some instances where quest-related ships couldn't reach their destination, which could result in getting stuck in the prologue. These are now fixed.
  • Fixed an error where the video playback went nuts and started playing in-game commercials in the main menu background.
  • Fixed a number of errors that could lead to ships not receiving damage until a few seconds after they first appeared.
  • The suns are now properly named and displayed on the starchart.
  • Fixed a problem that would prevent plasma cannons from dealing any damage to NPCs. More precisely, the weapon couldn't hit the target at all.
  • Ship prices displayed in the Shipyard and in the Garage are now the same.
  • Sometimes the video commercials on Concordia decided not to play. They don't have the luxury of choice anymore.
  • There was a slight problem with the in-game camera. It was slightly tilted, but no longer.
  • Targetting T-Gates while using a controller is now working as intended.
  • In some cases, the enemies list of a faction could overlfow from the panel... and screen. This can no longer happen.
  • Fixed a lot of faulty scripts that would player sounds in the completely wrong place in the game world. You didn't have a chance to hear those sounds until now.
  • If you started a new game, cloaked up and then started new game again, your ship would be bugged up. This is no longer the case.
  • Heavy weapon hits now have corresponding impact SFX.
  • The load game screen no longer displays the keyname of the region, but rather its name.
  • In some cases, hitting an asteroid with a heavy weapon when the asteroid was already damaged, the asteroid mesh would not disappear. Now it does, as it should.
  • On the Ship->Equipment screen, if you had an empty slot selected, equipment hover tooltips wouldn't show. This is now rectified.
  • Fixed a couple of errors related to general bonuses that would prevent the displayed values from refreshing properly.
  • The targeting reticle now properly displays heavy weapon information.
  • Fixed an error that prevented SFX from playing in the Options panel when using a controller.
  • In some instances it was very difficult or impossible to merge two fleets that are too close to one another. This no longer happens.
  • Fixed an error related to the Jettison/Destroy actions that could bug up the entire panel, and game respectively.
  • You can no longer bug up Fire at will in combination with the Context menu, manifesting as continuous firing.
  • Fighters added to a wing via the Carrier-related perk are now properly placed in the wing formation, instead of all being in the same location.
  • Fixed a couple of errors with text formatting that prevented dynamic tokens from being displayed properly.
  • In some cases, NPC fleets wouldn't attack the player when he/she approached their garrison, but decided to loop around the garrison instead. This is now fixed.
  • The Credits you gain when you sell or trade in a ship is now equal.
  • Fixed a few errors in the Prologue. You had some weapons that weren't supposed to be there.
  • Heavy weapon hits can once again force-deactivate cloaking.
  • Saving and quicksaving is now disabled in some cases to prevent data corruption.
  • Changed a couple of code-checks to prevent hitting a ship shield from within (if that ship is non-hostile). If the ship is hostile, then you still hit the shield.
  • Fixed a problem that prevented the OnFriendFoeChange script event from firing off when linked in ship templates. This now works as intended.
  • Fixed a visual bug related to using Power distribution while in Sublight and while using a controller. It all now works as intended.
  • There was a problem with playing Heavy weapon fire SFX. This is now fixed and sounds should play normally.
  • Fixed a number of minor errors and done some tweaks in Freelance jobs (Installation defense mostly).
  • Done various scripting fixes and tweaks.
  • Fixed a number of text typos.
  • When you deplete ammo of a heavy weapon, the reload indicator on the reticle will no longer show the reloading phase.

ADDITIONS

  • The entire territory of Gemini can now be conquered. No more magically unconquerable areas. Please check the below remarks.
  • You can now assault and conquer planets
    • To initiate planetary assault, you must have the Proxima built up and ready to go as it is an integral part of every planetary conquest.
    • To actually trigger assaulting a planet, just get to the locations marked on the Starchart (grey Proxima icon near planets) and the assault starts automatically.
    • If you just wanted to pass by, then simply continue on your merry way and the assault will shutdown.
    • The first type of planetary assault is implemented and used for all planets, but more variety will be implemented in future updates.

    • Stations are additionally guarded by defense platforms and shield generators (not to mention the defense fleets)

    • Station assault progress can be monitored on the top-middle bar, while on-site.
  • You can now construct the largest badass in the game: the Proxima
    • Upgrading the HQ Hangar to the max, gives you the ability to construct the Proxima shipyard near the HQ

    • Give the ship away to your fleets so they get to use it
    • Let your scientists play around with it, strip it down to the framework and reverse-engineer it and learn how you can construct the chassis.
      • The MK I version requires 2 captured chassis
      • The MK II version requires 5 captured chassis
      • You need to have the adequate Hangar level to be able to reverse-engineer ships
      • You need to have the appropriate Research tech completed to be able to reverse-engineer ships
  • Planets now grant resources
  • Stations now grant Credits (the numbers will be go through balancing as for now it is mostly symbolic)

  • Incoming heavy weapons are now marked, both while on and off the main viewport.
  • Purchasing a new ship will NOT transfer battery turrets you've had on the previous one. You will get the money you spent on upgrading the previous ship though.
