Voxel Turf is a block based City Builder/Action Adventure game with a touch of Grand Strategy. Build cities or destroy them. Start businesses or rob them. Nurture your citizens or subjugate them. Conquer rival factions in your city! Build a real estate empire, or perhaps just drive around and blow stuff up. Its your choice! Voxel Turf allows you to be the force of benevolence or the agent of chaos in a city of your creation.

  • Have you ever played an open world game and thought "if only I could build something here?"
  • Or a city builder and wanted to drive around and interact with your creation?
  • Or even a building game and thought "if only these buildings would come to life?"

If so then consider giving Voxel Turf a shot!

Game Features

Live in a City of Your Own Creation

  • Build sprawling cities with either the over 50 prebuilt buildings, or build your own in-game!
  • Make amazing structures with over 15,000 types of blocks in over 100 categories.
  • Or live in and modify a procedurally generated city

Get Rich or Die Trying

  • Earn cash from either completing missions, crime, or managing a real estate empire.
  • Establish protection rackets to make money
  • Some of the missions revolve around:
    • Being a hired revolutionary who fights the local authorities for cash
    • Participating in street races for money
    • Making a career though stealing vehicles for profit
    • Eliminating bandits and protecting civilians from bandit attacks
    • Be a specialist architect who draws an income from making custom buildings

Enjoy Multiplayer

  • Multiplayer over LAN or Internet. You can host games or set up dedicated servers
  • Most missions can be done in Co-Op

Unleash Creativity

  • The entire world is block based, so you can create and destroy everything.
  • Decorate blocks with paint and decals
  • Various non-cube construction blocks, including ramps, stairs, steps, allowing you to build things like pitched roofs and ultimately more realistic looking buildings.
  • Build intricate contraptions using switches, mechanisms and circuits
  • Custom player-built buildings can be saved as templates, and be placed like normal buildings. These are synced across a network, so you can do this in multiplayer too!

New Vehicle

I've added a Light Plane vehicle! The new plane makes flying long distances a breeze.

The plane can also remove blocks and take damage if it hits something! To do maximum damage I recommend pitching down to build speed before impact. For taking off, set throttle to maximum and take off on a flat, solid surface (concrete, asphalt, etc), and slowly pitch up once you are up to speed.

New Buildings

A new vehicle needs new spawn buildings yeah? I've added two: a Commercial Airfield

Above: The new Airfield building

...and a Bandit Base variant!

Above: The new Bandit Base!

Control Info Windows

Now control info windows appear to show you how to use vehicles, etc. See the right hand side of the following image:

Above:A plane on the runway, look to the right to see controls

You can press "I" to bring up the controls info

Server Reset

I've made a new map for the multiplayer Lets Build server - this time it's THE WORLD! I've also put the map onto the Steam Workshop in-case you want to play the map in singleplayer. This map is gigantic, measuring at 16km x 8km. I've made a small spawn area around Toburk

Bitmap Map Generation

I made the Lets Build The World Map using a bitmap, and now you can too! Running the server from the command line using the "--loadBitMap file.bmp" argument will make the game generate a map from the specified bitmap. The game will take the red channel as the hight/biome info - heights below 70 (bottoms out 56) will be sea biome, heights above 143 will be hills (maxes out at 158). The bitmap file does *not* have to be the same size or even aspect ratio as the game map - vtserver will automatically interpolate between values provided by the bitmap.

This an edited version of the command I used to generate the "Lets Build The World" map. vtserver --saveGame SAVE_NAME --genmap VERT_SIZE HORZ_SIZE --loadBitmapMap YOU_BITMAP.bmp --mapGenSeaMod -30 --mapGenHillsMod -35 --gameMode "Turf Zero"

Be sure to save your bitmaps in RGB24 format.

Workshop Map Support

You can upload maps to the Steam workshop! I recommend zipping the world0 folder and then deleting the folder before you upload, as Steam tends not handle very large numbers of small files. Now when you start a game using an existing map, vtserver will check for the existence of world0.zip and unzip it if required. If you look at my example at Steamcommunity.com you can see how I zipped the files.
