Strike Vector 1.0.4008 “Incoming call” Update

July 28th, 2014



Hi folks,

we finally added the Demolition mode (formerly known as Bomber mode) to the list ! In that mode, you have to destroy a huge enemy structure while defending yours. You'll have to constantly adapt your style and switch between attack and defense on the fly.
It's very fun to play and it also leaves some space for the rookies so be sure to give it a try.

For the challenge addicts, we added one more challenge pack and it's pretty challenging.

Again we tweaked the amount of Kebs you get for a kill. Now, you get more depending on your target's metal (Steel +15, Silver +30, Gold +45, Platinum +60, etc).

Also, we fixed all the issues related to multi-monitor displays. It looks great on 3 monitors, I wish I could afford that...

We hope you'll enjoy all the new stuff and we wish you loads of fun playing Strike Vector.
Cheers.

Strike Vector 1.0.3803 “LowLife Bar” Patch

June 17th, 2014

Hi,

this time we focused on improving damages feedback and readability (damages you take and damages you get). So we added lifebars on the HUD and damage indicators to make clear where the danger comes from.
We also made the Vectors invincible when spawning for a short time. This should discourage spawn-killers on corridor maps a bit.
Another important tweak is the kill difference dependant Keb reward : to summarize it, lower-score players will give you less Kebs when killing them, so you'd rather attack someone your own strength (or higher).

We hope you'll enjoy this little update,
Have fun.

Fixes and New Features

- destructible tankers, freighters and bonus drones grant Kebs (All modes except
SoloChallenge)
- Opponent lifebar added. It's displayed for a short amount of time when you hit an enemy.
- Hit feedback (Crosshair white cross) added on destructible objects, Bonus drones and traning drones. So you can make the difference between destructible and static scenery.
- Hit feedback (Crosshair white cross) turn Red when damaging yourself or team-mate.
- New damage feedback effect. The new effect indicates more clearly the direction to the aggressor. The old one was a bit unprecise and confusing so we reduced it.
- The Keb reward for a kill now depends on the relative kill-score of the belligerents. An opponent with less kills will grant you less Kebs, an opponent with more kills will grant more Kebs.
- The Keb reward is displayed on the HUD target, just below the Player's nickname.
- Impact effects played beyond the weapon's range fixed.
- Spawn sequence : 5 secs of invincibility. It's the same effect as the blue crate, you're not really invincible but damages are drastically reduced. We added a HUD indicator to let you know when it ends.
- Homing missiles unlocking : HarrierMode Strafe-boost AND JetMode barrel Roll both unlock incoming missiles. Timing is crucial : wait for the continuous warning sound to trig your action.
- Homing missiles unlocking : A succesful dodge action unlocks all locked missiles at once and starts a 3 secs period of "unlockability".
- Help Menu : HUD Help page updated.
- Death panel : wrong killer display fixed.
- Death panel : display after a switch team fixed.
- Death log : suicide displays only one PlayerName.
- Gravity loading screen : shameless kinky lens-flare added.

The Intro:
Stop. Don't let the big red square in the top left of this review fool you into being defensive. I LOVE this game, probably more than any of you reading this review. That being said let's talk about the one, ONE problem with this perfect game.

The Problem:
It's dead, man.

The Good:
For all of you who don't know, Strike Vector is a dogfighting game as fast paced as you see in the trailers. Speaking of which, the trailers do a good job describing the game: The graphics are pretty, the action is tense, there is aesthetical customization. On combat, there are varied weapons, passive abilites and "use once every so often" abilities like cloaking and a huge speed boost. (8 of each) The other positive reviews explain that in more detail, so I won't waste your time and regurgitate said information.

That being said, the game is HARD to learn. Basically you have to get used to the controls, master switching harrier and jet forms, get used to flying in tight corridors, and ONLY then can you hope to face others in pvp. You'll still get creamed a few times, but if you need advice, just type something in chat and they would tell you.

Sure it was frustrating back then when everybody was better than you, but they would be nice and try to be helpful. THE COMMUNITY WAS HELPFUL, MAN. A PvP (As in dead flipping serious, "you are not rewarded for messing around") game where the fighting is intense had a helpful community. That to me, is amazing.

The Bad:
But nowadays, there isn't a community. I, (and you included) could open up the game, click on the servers tab, and find for the amount of players on each server, ZERO across the board. Sure, some people will comment, "That is rediculous, just the other day I was playing and there were five servers with a moderate amount of people." I have NEVER seen that many people other than when i first got the game: 2 months ago, specifically April 12. (As you may tell, the other review are way before or around this time, so at most the main problems were bugs and there is no mention of a dead playerbase.) Even then the playerbase was shrinking and nowadays its maybe one person on a server for an hour. Just to humour those people, however, lets do the math; A server usually has 16 players max, but "a moderate amount of people" suggests it would be roughly half or 3/4 full. So lets say per server there is an average of 10 people. Times that by 5 and what do you get? A playerbase of 50 people. Ladies and gentlemen, that's not much, at all. It's certainly not fitting for a AAA game that this is. Morrowind has a bigger playerbase, Duke Nukem has a bigger playerbase, even MOTHER FLIPPING Ace of Spades has a bigger playerbase. Also please take into account that the figure is outdated by two months and nowadays its one guy on one server flying around for an hour and leaving.

The Fix:
So this is surprising; Usually you have a crummy, unoriginal, game that doesn't have a player base no matter HOW much advertising they do, but in this case it's the opposite. You have an awesome game that hasn't done much advertising. The only way I found out about this game was because my friend had it, and because it went on sale for like two days. Ideally, they do more advertising, people realize how cool and original this game is, the devs have a large playerbase and víola! You have a successful game.

I'm no expert, but as a person who buys games, (you are one of these too), I really like Steam sales, also anything on the "Featured" page on the store catches my eye. Sure, advertising costs money, but if they do both of these things, they will have an actual playerbase, become deservingly popular, and attract more people. Haven't you ever seen the, "put a dollar in the jar and people will come trick?"People like popular things.

The Tl;Dr:
It's dead right now, so don't pay 12 dollars for a AAA multiplayer game with no other players.

Strike Vector should be sold as Early Access. Core gameplay is nice. The rest is buggy, incomplete, and raw.

Add a mental "Early Access" tag and disclaimer when considering the asking price. Also consider whether the multiplayer community will exist a few months from now when, presumably, the game will be more polished.

Myself, I didn't appreciate being duped into paying for an open beta.

Update 1:

Although you can search the forum for numerous bug reports and valid criticisms, here are the specific problems I encountered:

* default keybinding are broken out the gate
* server browser is buggy, putting you in random servers if you attempt to sort
* on occassion, I just get a momentary black screen and then I'm out of the game and back to the main menu
* all other interfaces beyond the core game engine feel like an afterthought
* keybinding interface is unpolished and buggy
* keybinding interface is unavailable in the hangar
* keybinding interface will re-launch you when dead whenever you use left-mouse button to interact with the keybinding UI (which is always)
* lack of tooltips to explain what certain features are
* redundant movement controls: "move forward" and "post combustion" do the same thing, but have two separate key binds

Update 2:

Upon reading other reviews, I learned that many of the aforementioned bugs were known during the beta. If reviewer Rhino is to be believed, Ragequit was deleting forum posts that listed bugs, presumably because the game was launching a week later. So instead of fixing bugs, or delaying the release, or labelling the product Early Access, Ragequit chose deception.

Everything in this game is fun, even dying 10/10

(Also, the game isn't actually that dead. There's plenty of near-full servers to play in.)

EDIT : Game was updated, still no one playing :(

Steam Charts Player #

I wasted my money but you don't have to.

This game has followed the sad trend of putting an unfinished game up for sale so this is only a skeleton of what you would expect for $25. What's here is the most fun I've had in a long time and I would love to recommend this game to get more people playing but it wouldn't be right. Even the devs admit there is a huge lack as everytime you shut down the game you get a splash screen showing "More content coming soon!"

I want this game to do well, it really is a blast to play but it seems to me this is another case of a dev running out of money and then selling what they have in the hopes they make enough money to finish the project. This is basically a Kickstarter but on the Steam store trying to convince you it's a complete game.

Once there is a full game here, once the community can make maps/mods, and if there are still people playing once all that happens then this will be a great game worth your time and money. Right now you are paying for hope.
