    Star Conflict - Open Beta, available on Steam - Space ships/WoT style

    Hey,

    So there's this. It's a bit like WoT but in space with spaceships. UI seems kinda badly made, but could be fun.

    I have been trying to get a beta key for a while, but anyhow, here's a little bit of gameplay.




    Edit apr 22nd: video went private. Guessing MMOhut does not read NDAs lol. Will post another one asap.

    Edit: may 07th: video's BACK! Yay.

    Their website is easy to find

    It looks okay I guess, nothing that I haven't really seen. Something that you've got to play to really get a feel for me thinks.

    Signed up for beta. Signup included a required textbox helpfully labeled "Your PC config".

    I pasted the contents of my DxDiag.txt. The entire contents. Web designer gonna be lazy, I'm gonna be lazy too. Hope he remembered to put a character limit on those input fields.

    Installing. Will report back once I try it.

    Depending on how good it is I might limit what I say so they can't track me down and revoke my access.

    Of course not! And even if I did, I would never admit it on a public forum.

    Alas there's not much I can say without getting killed by the NDA. I'm pretty sure I can say I'm in the beta though, since I had that information before I signed the NDA and thus would not be bound by an NDA if I'd disclosed the receipt of an invitation before consenting to it. Which is not to say that there is an NDA or that I'm not allowed to even confirm the existance of an NDA or that I'm testing the game.

    Posting to confirm that I, too, am bound by an NDA regarding star conflict and as such, am not able to confirm or deny.

    Also, game's fun. Screw ndas.

    Can safety say this game is quite fun despite limited numbers in CB, NDA is up so cant say much except this - Action game version of Eve Online combat would sum this up for me

    From the video it looks like the combat will just devolve into turn battles tbh.

    Uh...turn battles?

    Oh you mean dogfights. Yeah that's pretty much the stated intent of a dogfighting game.

    Dogfight != turn battle. With aircraft, it's actually interesting due to different performance characteristics (weight, turn rate, climb rate, engine power, altitude). e.g. if a zero had ever engaged a spitfire, the spitfire would have tried to outpower the thing in climbs and dives while the zero would try to out-turn it.

    Unfortunately, most space games only keep the top speed (acceleration is fast enough it might as well be instant) and turn rate aspects of dogfighting, which boils the fight down to a contest to see who can hold their controls in the same position the longest.

    Ah. I misunderstood you.

    That is indeed a fair criticism.
