Reply with quote

the actual list is here:
http://wiki.spacetrace.org/index.php/Game_Features

here is a feature list we made for promoting spacetrace. pls help me with the spelling and further suggestion.

game structures:
  • real-time in seconds
  • 3D spatial with floating point vector calculations
  • transit times average > 5 hours
  • simple vacation mode without drawbacks
  • playability also without constant online presence
  • balanced game play: basic ship-types are strong and reliable
  • 5 unique races, which are well balanced
  • an equal limit on game resources for all players
  • multiple accounts are banned and impractical anyway
  • originality: even experienced players are often surprised by creative new fleet set-ups and tactical uses of the various available ships


fleets and ship manoeuvres
  • 1 home-base and 3 fleets
  • each fleet needs a mothership to move (which contains the warp-drive)
  • it can be travelled at high speed through wormholes and the alliance-network transwarp-gates
  • fleets can be tactically fine tuned: every ship is important
  • fleets can be cloaked
  • 3D-Map (scroll/zoom/rotate...)
  • players can install new wormhole portals on their own, that stay even over the lifespan of that player


alliances
  • alliances with voted leaders
  • alliance offices: minister of communication, minister of war, flag commander
  • alliance war with capture the flag
  • alliance jump gates
  • conquer colonies
  • mobile alliance jump gate
  • alliance espionage /sabotage
  • war against big/successful alliances is worthy


probes
  • 11 different probes, scanning for: planet coordinates, other probes, fleet constellations, planet surfaces, hyperjump targets and probes for scrambling, decloaking, relay stations for scan vessels
  • coordinates will be saved in clearly arranged lists which can be transmitted easily to other players


production and research
  • over 200 different researches
  • complex tech-tree
  • players can make own inventions which can be placed on neutral planets
  • automated production


space battles
  • battles are resolved without need of being online
  • battles between groups of any number of attackers and defenders possible
  • tactical dexterity: good players can challenge 4 or more attackers and win against them , not because of more resources , just because of tactical experience
  • sabotage of probes/production etc. with ground troopers possible


communication and more
  • in-game-mailing
  • forum
  • IRC
  • Wiki
  • extended statistics
  • news magazine
  • possibility to include own javascripts
  • planet description with picture and homepage
  • homepage awards
  • sound packages for download
  • different game interfaces
  • translated into over 15 languages German, Spanish, Polish, Finish and many more


newbie help etc.
  • video tutorial
  • newbie wizard
  • FAQ
  • extensive, dynamically extending manual
  • newbie- helper
  • defensive battle station for newbies
  • start with preconstructed fleets
  • ships that can be found on neutral planets will give starting players tactical power


if you need it in clean html, here:

ok admin,

what you really need is a snappy gif that advertises space trace in a few short snappy phrases...

then you post it on different websites, ask around and grab an advertising slot here or there. Also if people playing the game would join other random games and start forum topics, or use the gifs as avatars, or something along those lines...

do you want me to make a cool gif???
once i have finished i will post it here

thx, go for it

balanced game play: standart vessel are strong and reliable -> Basic ships types have a high level of effectiveness.

and i am not sure about this:
DavAlan wrote:

5 unique races, which are well balanced -> 5 unique races with extensive balancing. .

originality: even experienced players are often surprised by originative tactical maneuvers -> Innovation from players can set new precedents and take even the experienced by suprise.

and:
