Version 1.03 released !

Hello everyone !

We’re back with the biggest update that we have released so far since the game’s launch 2 months ago.

We've focused mostly on stability, with many major changes under the hood, but we also put a lot of work on balancing several areas of the game, like the tech tree and AI for example as well as fixing several bugs.

Here's the changelog for 1.03:

-Improved stability
-Story events races now start with 4 planets instead of 1
-The Arka'avi and Osian races now have much better technology, making them significantly harder to beat
-Raze planet crash fixed
-It's now harder to have the AI accept long term payment deals, making it much harder to lead the AI bankrupt by asking or giving several loans. Additionally it also takes its current debt into account when making a decision.
- Added new Background music track
- Implemented a series of experimental stability fixes
- Added Space Key to skip cinematic intro
- Going back from the game to the main menu now restarts the new game settings
- Made the AI use diplomacy more actively
- Rebalanced the tech research time of several technologies in all branches
- Added Plasma Weapon Z-IV technology and ship part
- Fixed non working Technology Level tooltip when a pirate faction is
selected in the Diplomacy menu
- Fixed non working Enter Key in initial intro
- Fixed General without weapons bug
- Fixed events that are triggered when right after starting a new session
- Fixed non working "Broken Chains" speech
- Fixed barely noticeable effect of the Emergency Chip, Improved
Medical Care and Pharmaceutics technolgies
- Fixed Minor Race menu not showing the state of your relations when
they really like you
- Fixed "too much weight" window bug when leaving the ship design menu
- Fixed non working Enter Key in initial intro
- Fixed "can't estabilish trade routes with empire X" due to embargo or war message popping up when trying to move a ship to one of your planets

As always, we are listening to your feedback and really appreciate any report of issues you may find.
That said, we really hope you enjoy this update !

Cheers !

Über dieses Spiel

Lords of the Black Sun ist ein spannendes, komplexes, episches rundenbasiertes 4X-Weltraum-Strategiespiel für den PC. Entscheid dich für eines der Völker im Spiel und erobere die Galaxie. Als Anführer deines Imperiums ist es deine Aufgabe, den Weltraum zu erforschen, neue Welten zu kolonisieren, dein Imperium zu verwalten und jeden, der sich dir entgegen stellt, dem Erdboden gleichzumachen.

Die Galaxie birgt viele Geheimnisse und Gefahren: Entdecke alte Ruinen und Artefakte, verteidige dich gegen Piraten oder freunde dich mit ihnen an - oder befördere einen General, der deine Flotten zum Sieg führt. Mit deinen Verbündeten kannst du komplexe Verschwörungen aushecken oder deinen Geheimdienst dafür nutzen, Schwachstellen des feindseligen Imperiums aufzudecken, dessen Anführer geschworen hat, dich zu vernichten.

Achte immer darauf, dass deine Bevölkerung glücklich ist, oder du musst mit Protesten gegen deine Herrschaft – oder noch schlimmer – der Entstehung von Rebellenfraktionen innerhalb deines Imperiums rechnen. Nur die mächtigsten Herrscher können in den Tiefen des Weltraums überleben. Bist du bereit, zu einem Herrn der Schwarzen Sonne zu werden?

Spielfeatures:

  • 8 Hauptvölker, die jeweils eigene Schiffsdesigns, Technologien, einzigartige Wesenszüge und Fähigkeiten mitbringen – das bedeutet,
    dass dich jedes Volk vor neue Herausforderungen stellt und das Spiel sich dadurch anders gestaltet.
  • Ein umfangreiches, lebendiges Universum: Zusätzlich zu den Großmächten gesellen sich noch unabhängige Völker und Piratenfraktionen. Ihre Existenz kann ein Fluch oder ein Segen sein, je nachdem, ob du sie geschickt für dich einsetzen kannst.
  • Ausgeklügeltes Wirtschafts- und Diplomatiesystem: Du kannst Rivalen nicht nur durch Kriege schwächen. Auch Diplomatie,
    Geheimdienste und Handelsabkommen sind mächtige Werkzeuge, die, sofern richtig eingesetzt, sehr wirksam sein können.
  • Taktisches, rundenbarisertes Kampfsystem.
  • Erstelle eigene Schiffsdesigns und passe sie deinen Vorstellungen an.
  • Generäle: Diese einzigartigen und mächtigen Einheiten entwickeln sich mit jedem Kampf weiter, und wenn du sie schlau einsetzt, können sie über Sieg oder Niederlage entscheiden.
  • Das Universum, der Technologiebaum und die Einheiten werden nach Zufallsprinzip erschaffen. So spielst du nie dasselbe Spiel zweimal.
  • Abspaltungen: Unruhen in deinem Imperium können dazu führen, dass Rebellen einen Bürgerkrieg anzetteln, der wiederum zur Gründung eines neuen, unabhängigen Imperiums führen kann, das zum Rivalen deines eigenen wird.
  • Verschwörungen: Du kannst heimlich einen Krieg gegen deine Rivalen finanziell unterstützen, um sie so zu schwächen. Oder du bereitest einen Überraschungsangriff mit Verbündeten vor, um eines der erschreckend schnell wachsenden Imperien zu vernichten.
  • Eine KI, die nicht schummelt und den Regeln der menschlichen Spieler folgt, und trotzdem jederzeit eine gewisse Herausforderung darstellt. Andererseits kannst du auch mit deinen Freunden im Hotseat-Modus spielen.
  • Spiele Multiplayer und Hotseat online auf LAN oder IP/internet.

Bin sehr enttäuscht von Steam sowas zum Verkauf anzubieten. Das Game startet nicht und trotz Updates läuft es immer noch nicht und wie man im Forum lesen kann bei sehr vielen anderen Gamern auch nicht. Ich kann daher nur von einem Kauf abraten.

Das Spiel ist irgendwie ganz nett gemacht, auch wenn die deutsche Übersetzung nur halbherzig implementiert wurde.
Leider ist so gar nicht up to date und wirkt fast wie ein Retrogame von vor 5-10 Jahren. Da es aber erst vor 3 Monaten rauskam ist umso deprimierender. Da spiel ich lieber weiter Galactic Civilisations.

- keine eigenen Rasse modifizieren
- sehr überschaubarer Techtree
- lieblos abgekupfert von anderen Spielen

+ Piratenrassen, sind Nebenrassen die verteilt in der Galaxie Planeten haben und ständig Geld wollen, oder einen mit Krieg überziehen; nette Idee

Finger weg!

Hier ein klares "Außen Hui, innen großes Pfui",

nein meine lieben Leute der gepflegen Si-Fi Strategie, jeder der sich damit beschäftigt, Fan ist und diese Spiele eigendlich auch liebt, wird hier bitter böse enttäuscht!.
Vom Grundsätzlichem macht Iceberg Entertament ja einen echt guten Job, doch von seinem eigenem Schützling (Endless Space) so einen minderwertigen Klon zu veröffentlichen war selbst für einen eingefleischten Strategie-Spieler wie mich zu viel des (nicht) guten.
Also abschließend nun gesagt rate ich jedem der sich wirklich Autentischem Strategischem Gameplay witmen will anderweitig Geld auszugeben, jedenfalls hoffe ich, dass ich so einigen Spielern vor einen Fehlkauf bewahren kann.

Vorveröffentlichungsreview
Once upon a time, an intergalactic warlord colonized a planet with their species. This game is the result.

It's not often my lead-ins to my reviews are so short, and it's not often that I review a game prior to spending at least 24 hours in-game with it, but this game isn't one I can recommend, for various reasons.

First things first - "Lords of the Black Sun" is a space-based 4X game, where you attempt to conquer the universe, Cid Meyer's Civilization-style. You build installations on planets, create colony ships, build pre-defined military vessels, and can even create custom units. Units stack, and space battles take place in a sort of Final Fantasy Tactics cut-out battle scene.

All of this sounds like a strategy gamer's dream, so why do I sound so against it?

First, the interface is horrible, and I'm not merely talking about the presentation, though that's pretty awful. The UI isn't optimized for a player's experience; it's hard to see even a neophyte developer looking at the UI and thinking, 'the players are going to love this.' Most of the menuing takes more actions than is really necessary.

Second, the game itself feels utterly soulless. It feels like someone started by taking a look at Cid Meyer's Alpha Centauri, then proceeded to put it further into space, but instead of hiring a writer, gave it to someone's nephew. The result is an experience that doesn't capture the wonder of interstellar colonization, or galactic politics, but is rather an experience that it's hard to care about for even a single session.

Mechanically, the game is sound - as stated above, it's the sort of thing strategy gamers claim to love and want. The execution is so terrible, especially given the $30 asking price, which is entirely too much for what you're getting. Firaxis Games, these guys ain't.

PROS:
  • Mechanicallly sound game
  • Great space visuals
  • Interesting fleet-to-fleet combat
  • Good custom unit creation system.

CONS:
  • Uninspired, forgettable writing and scenario
  • Ugly UI that impedes the player
  • Forgettable music
  • Unstable game - the end of my expeirence came after the game just crashed for no apparent reason.
  • Way too expensive for what you're actually getting.

Verdict: Avoid it. The developers need to do some serious work on this game and lower the price for this game to be worth it. If they will do this, I will take a second look and re-evaluate my review.

Too many bugs to play. Once it starts having problems you should just start another game... My advice - not worth your money or time.

This game has taught me to read through the reviews before buying. I'm afraid this game doesn't have much going for it. Stability issues, gameplay is awkward, balancing issues - just overall not much redeemable about it.

Put simply, Lords of the Black Sun is a mechanically sound game (i.e. all the pieces, although not flashy, work and serve their purpose) that fails to blend together to create a harmonious whole. The game often feels disjointed, lacks real depth or innovation, and is mediocre even in what it tries to do differently from others (i.e. espionage, empire-wide management).

While it might be worth a few hours of gameplay, Lords of the Black Sun lacks the fine detail and substance that make players return to games over and over again. This will likely be played once by most and then gather proverbial dust in the Steam library, especially fans of the genre who have come to expect much more from 4X titles.

Lords of the Black Sun has some positives, but they don’t come close to outweighing the negatives. The limited graphics, lack of flavor (races, diplomacy, planets) and unfinished edges make for an experience I have no interest in repeating again. The current price tag is exorbitant for a game that could easily be mistaken for a title designed for a browser or mobile platform.

Definitely not the “epic-sized complex and dense 4X strategy game,” promised.

Well, I looked for something like MoO2 (yeah, yeah, I know) or Endless Space, at least. What I got? Well, I started my game at Normal difficulty with every single race present. I wanted to fool around, to understand how it all works. And after a couple of turns I realized that a technology victory path is SHORT. Like, real short. I won the game and the only fight I had was when a pirate clan attacked my unarmed scout (BTW, no retreat option).

So, I won. But that was a very disappointing victory... in one hour. Including reading the tutorials. Which are done badly, because:
a) Font is difficult to read in 1920x1080
b) Tutorials are plain text. Short and boring.
c) This text is divided to pages and they look ridicuosly in HD: a small chunk of text floating in the middle of 22" display. Hey, guys! Either make font to correspond with screen resolution, or show all the text at once when resolution allows that.

Basically, I don't understand why play this game at all. And I can't say much about gameplay because for me it looked like "click-click-click - secure technological advance (as always in space 4X) - click-click-click - oops, you won".

Yes, the victory screen is ridiculous too. "You won! Here is logo of your race. Bye."

So far, my most disappointing Steam purchase. Even considering 50% discount.

The game had the potential to be a solid 4x space strategy game, but it has fallen short. Pretty much all aspects of the game are lacking depth further than the basics needed for a working game. There are some crash issues, but not enough to really dwell on. You might get 5 or 6 hours play time before getting bored. Overall, I'd recommend GalCiv, Star Ruler 2, or Endless Space over this any day.

I played completely through once, and I really wanted to like it, but it is simply not fun, far too little 'strategy', far too slow and grindy, no sense of progress or advancement, and the endless bugs are simply the nail in this game's coffin.

The game looks nice on the screen shots, but in reality it is pretty dull, and the gameplay is really boring.

This one needs some love, it needs alot more pop up art, more immersion, more polish etc, it is all just so dull and bland.

I have played 2.5hours so far and alot of that was afk and i cant force myself to launch it again.

If it recieves some love and polish, more art, bigger pop up screens, voice etc then it could be alright.

The game is similar what I can write on the weekends with my father in law. It is a mix of nice solar system view and text screens from 1995.

Recently, the ship design screen is updated but the style is still still far from the the level of 2014. Colony manager is without depth. Research is simple with limited logic. You can research beam weapon 1 then 2 then 3, etc. Space battle screen is a punishment, you have seen much better decade(s) ago...for example in MOO2.

All in all, it does not worth the price of a PC game in 2014. If it would be a mobile phone game for $4 it would.

As things currently stand, the game really doesn't work. Not only does it crash all the time but the interface leaves a great deal to be desired. There is no tooltip so it makes it really hard to understand what is what. The lack of standard designs for ship building make it annoying to have to build your own vessels. Not to mention the fact that the ship builder is a joke really. The items cost way to much and doesn't give you much options on the ship. The lack of a proper informational database means that it is hard to decide what to do and when. Basically the game just needs to be developed further because this is the level I would expect to see in an alpha. Combat is also not very interesting. The AI always moves its ships in max distance so if you go first, you can hang back and wait and open up on them and if they go first, they move in to your operational range but out of firing range allowing you to just go in and shoot first either way. Your military strength also makes no difference in their choice to make war with you. I had more than double the enemies worlds, general and fleet and he goes to war with me. My ships outclass his easily and I just faceroll fleet after fleet. As for construction on a planet, I find it rather intersting. Not really complicated, not really easy but without tooltips and having not memorized the look of buildings means it takes ages to figure it out. Also you don't get to know what the benefit of each building is before construction making it a hard choice in the end.

If the game actually finishes I think it would be rather fun but as it currently stands, I would prefer my money back over the game on my list.

It's a good game but at a certain point in the game, it crashes and you cannot play for more than
a turn after it does...So I'm gonna have to say "no"on recommending it.

God I want to like this game.
MoO2 is in my top 2 games of all time.
The problem is that this game is ALPHA. Not Pre-Release, not Released, not Finished / Supported.


So many bugs, so many crashes, I can't load from a savegame, so every game is "rogue-like". Seriously! A Rogue-like 4x game.

The Devs have all but left this game. Even at 75% off, it's just not worth it. Plenty of 4x games on steam and GOG has MoO 1& 2.

Steam should be ashamed to have pulled this out of early release and the publisher should be strung up for asking $5 for this game, let alone $20+.


1/10 for potential but worth $2 at most.

This game is empire building de-evolved. The game feels grossly incomplete and full of crashes. I'm glad I got it on sale. Don’t waste your money on the full price. There is no story line past the intro, controls are inadequate and unintuitive.
Management systems are incomplete and clunky. I was attracted to the ship building as described by the video which doesn’t live up to even basic expectations. I cant give this more than one star in its present form.

I would like to give this game a positive review, I greatly enjoy playing it until it crashes. I'm lucky to get an hour or two of gameplay in before it crashes. I've owned this game since before they changed the name from Star Lords, and I have played countless hours of it (My steam history is off because I play in offline mode due to the fact that I have limited bandwidth and try to save it). Sadly, no patch has fixed this problem, but I will change my recommendation if they do, because I really enjoy playing this when it works.

This game appears to have potential. Having stated that; this game freezes every ten to twenty minutes, requiring me to "End Program" via Task Manager back to the Desktop. In addition, the many glitches (homeworld population, General's increased damage when advanced not realized, many spelling & grammar issues, rotation in combat doesn't work, more). As a result, I've chosen to uninstall it until it reaches a more completed state.
