Earth and the core worlds are suffering. Overpopulation and lack of resources are leading to unrest and desperation. That's where you come in. You've been recruited to colonize a planet more than 4 light years away. It's your job to save the human race from its own greed and consumption. The game is experienced from a top-down view allowing for the deliberate and creative crafting of every item, vehicle, and structure in use. Using a scriptable and dynamic artificial intelligence the AI Overlord will change up every aspect of the game. Nothing stays the same forever, making Worlds an addictively, dynamic experience with limitless replayability.

It's a new year and Violent Sol Worlds is progressing faster than ever. We have put a ton of work into our capabilities to support a massive amount of modding. Our focus has been to architect this game in a way that will allow the community to add on to it with nearly 100% freedom. We have taken huge strides in this area and done some other cool things as well. Here is a rundown of our achievements recently.

It's a new year and Violent Sol Worlds is progressing faster than ever. We have put a ton of work into our capabilities to support a massive amount of modding. Our focus has been to architect this game in a way that will allow the community to add on to it with nearly 100% freedom. We have taken huge strides in this area and done some other cool things as well. Here is a rundown of our achievements recently.

  • We worked on our ability to lay down complex objects in the world that are made of more than one entity. Much like a tree, it has a trunk and a canopy, we did not want to continue placing both separately in the world. We now have blueprint system that allows us to place down a specific type of tree, building, or other complex structure in one simple action in code.
  • We redid the car friction modelling making the car feel a ton better
  • For modding we no longer wanted nearly anything to be hard-coded. We created a config reader to load simple xml files for most entity stats. This allows for a ton of modifications to be done by just editing text files
  • Our animation system is now based on configuration files and is completely mod-able
  • We standardized our world interactions to all go through a central queue. This makes it much easier for our continued work as all things flow in the exact same way now.
  • We standardized collision reactions
  • We created a standard way to create physics objects
  • A C# Api for modding that just wrapped up. This should allow for you are a modder to have the same power as we have as the developers to change the game in meaningful ways.
  • Many efficiency fixes in the entire project.

Greenlight Update

One huge announcement is that we have officially been Greenlit. We were shocked when it happened, but are glad to have that task behind us. Now we focus on the game creation and getting it to our early access stage. Thank all of you that voted and supported our game.

Greenlit


Current Build

Here is a quick look at some of the AI work and such for the games current build. Keep in mind that everything you see is being governed by configuration files and a C# api. This opens the door wide for the community to add and modify the content of the game.
