The Master Arm Switch -- Update

29 mai 2014

This is another pre-Wargame update that also includes a number of player requested features.

This update is automagically available once you restart Steam.

Weapons: Master Arm Switch
We've removed the 2 second trigger delay and replaced it with a Master Arm Switch. When you're not in a safe zone, activate the switch to turn off the weapons safety. There will no longer be a delay for weapons fire.

It is possible that you may receive several notification messages relating to why you cannot fire, "Safe Zone, Weapon Safety, etc..." -- we'll be smoothing this out in subsequent updates.

New Bank Account Notifications
You are now notified if you receive credits due to a discovery or a cleared sector.

Radar Ping: Heading
When radar is active, you now see the specific heading of objects in relation to your flight direction.

About Me
The "About Me" section in the PDA now accepts input. You can enter a short biography (Limit 256 Characters). However this will not be visible to other players until the reputation system is live.

Increased reward payout for discoveries.
The reward payout for discoveries has been increased to $100 per discovered object and $1k for a completed sector.

Rank and level icon next to pilot tags
Your faction rank and HT level now display next to your ship for other pilots. More info can be found on the wiki: http://wiki.epicspace.net/HT-Rank.html

Promotions Week
- Is next week, remember to get all your required merits in before the first of June to lock in your promotion. More info is here: http://wiki.epicspace.net/Faction-Rank.html

Merits are also awarded for Bug Reports which can be submitted here: http://thealphacompany.net/forums/viewforum.php?f=21

Let me know how the Master Arm works out.

À propos du jeu

Epic Space Online hosts players in a single universe with absolutely no borders or boundaries. You can fly in any direction in a procedurally generated universe.

Epic Space Online is all about Sectors. The more sectors you control, the more revenue you generate. Trade, Pirate, Conquer, or Negotiate to your objectives in this Infinite Universe.

WARNING: EARLY ACCESS. Join only if you want to support the development of this project and are willing to deal with an unforeseen amount of bugs!

Features

The premise of Epic Space is simple: Conquer and control sectors. The more you control, the more money you make, the larger your empire. Seize or barter, it's your decision. Purchase/craft ships, weapons, stations. Sell them, or use them against your enemies.


  • One Server – One shared persistent sandbox/universe, shared by the entire world and can be connected to from a PC, Mac, or Linux. And soon, iOS as well!
  • No Borders – An ever infinite and ever expanding universe. You can fly in any direction as far as the fuel you're carrying.
  • Deep Crafting – Hundreds of craftable items. Every ship, any item can be crafted from your own space station and sold on the Alliance Market.
  • Space Stations – Easily deploy space stations, sensor arrays, flak cannons, and various other solutions to protect territory.

What's in development now

  • Story Arc – An engaging story spanning 10 acts. With a decent size of characters. Our hope is to have each line properly voice acted.
  • Capital Ships – The largest ships in the Universe, requiring a crew of real people to manage. Dock, Craft, and more just as you would on a Space Station.
  • Stand alone dedicated servers – Dedicated servers designed solely for competitive gameplay.

What's the long term vision

  • What we're creating is an easily accessible space themed arcade game playable on all platforms, with everyone on a single server in an infinite universe.
  • We plan to offer ES: Online at the above price, for the short term as add more value to the game! This is a great time to join.

En quelques mots, N'ACHETEZ PAS CE JEU qui est, pour réaliser une analogie simple, c'est d'une qualité BIEN INFERIEURE à FarmVille le tout à 30 € (comme quoi le zéro absolu n'est plus une limite...)

Ne croyez pas ce qui est vanté dans la page magasin, c'est très clairement du foutage de gueule pur et simple. L'univers généré procéduralement est... et bien... FOUTREMENT VIDE !!!
On peut parfaitement voler à pleine vitesse pendant 20 minutes et ne rien voir d'autre qu'un fond d'écran en 248p dégueulasse indigne d'une super nes.

Graphiquement, c'est sale, moche, dégueulasse, flou, en low def, bref, environ digne d'une nes ou d'un jeu sur navigateur des années 2000.
Le gameplay est... Non mais c'est pas un jeu ça, c'est une punition pour votre gamin si il se comporte mal !
Point positif, la musique est pas désagréable. Je vous conseille toutefois VLC à la place, moins cher, moins chiant...

Bref, encore une fois, si vous tenez vraiment à acheter ce jeu, demandez à l'auteur de mettre une capote, ça vous évitera tout un tas de maladies ...
Et rendez moi mon fric.

Je comprends rien à ce jeu , déja dés que l'on écrit en Français sur le tchat on nous agresse demandant de parler Anglais (pourtant il on pas refuser mes euros pour l'acaht de ce jeu).
Aprés on sent que ce jeu pourait être plaisant , c est un Mankind version 2014, mais trop dure pou:

----Gagner des crédits (uniquement via exploration, le commerce à la X rebirth et mensuellement gain par secteur que l'on contrôle).
autant vous dire qu'accumuler les 10 million pour l'achat d'un cargo ship risque de prendre des mois.
Surtout que certain on déja de l'avance et blindés leurs secteurs de tourelles qui tirent a vu ( perdu 2 ships comme cela)
--Les missions ingame qui normalement devraient nous faire gagner des crédits sont ridicules et du style explorer le secteur 75 * 225 pour gagner 7800 crédit quand on sait que pour traverser un secteur nous faut bien 2 minutes sans compter le fuel qu'il nous faudrait pour cela.
-J'insiste sur le fait que nous Français ne sommes pas les bienvenues et qu on à beau être polis et saluer d'un "Bonjour à tous " dés qu' on arrive sans que personnes repondent.
-Sinon je continu à m'accrocher au potentiel de ce jeu mais jusqu'a quand ?!!
----Pour info j'ai crer une faction" Union des Mondes" pour ceut qu'il veulent venir jouer en esperant qu'on aura droit à de belles batailles pour la conquete de nouveaux secteurs..
Reste à voir comment ce jeu va tourner mais si ils ne font rien pour protèger et donner beaucoup plus de crédits aux nouveaux arrivants ce jeu se videra dans les jours à venir !!!

When I wrote my review and said that it would be possible that next week most of the problems would have been solved, I meant as "anytime soon". Somehow the developers took it literally and decided to really solve them before weekend.

Some aspects of the game are still slow paced and give a browser-based game design feeling, like the rank requirement, or the several days long timers for crafting some items that aren't even something you'd actually desire enough to wait that long. Although you don't need to spend the waiting time in game and may have lots of stations with separate assembly lines.

But the game is playable and if you're into universe exploration and a bit of management you can have fun with the game. Most bugs are the kind you'd expect from EA and relogging will fix.

The missions still have ridiculously low rewards (worse than shooting trash to sell scraps). But, unlike many other mmos, they're not the main source of money until you're able to work the player market. And the npc ran stations are not the best way to get anything other than fuel. You can pretty much scan a planet and find the $10mil ship.

I'm keeping the original review and the patch I noticed the problem solved.. but do look for videos:

If you're still making up your decision on whether to buy this or not, make sure you watch gameplay videos.

The game seems to have a lot of potential, although it is not likely to ever be a mainstream game. But as for now, it would only be worth buying if it was on a 95%-off sale. Of course, this is early access and the team actually seems to be working, so it is possible that next week most of the problems will be solved. To be fair I'll try to update whenever I see any change.

Playing this for 6h, I haven't experienced any sign of lag, only seen minor bugs and got disconnected a couple times.
There's only a few problems... have you ever played those browser games where you'd click a few buttons and come back 6-24h later to click a few times again? I had the impression that I was playing one of those. Except that I couldn't just wait the 6-24h. I actually would have to navigate for countless hours to get $4000 and repeat until I make a few millions to get an upgrade on anything.

[v7.6.1] After you log in, you get dumped in the middle of nowhere with a ship that will make you wonder if you shouldn't just get out of it and fart your way across the universe to see if you go faster. And, the answer is yes, you would have a much higher chance of reaching something before you die than using that ship. Unfortunately, it's not possible.

Along with your space exploring snail, you get a message that seems to be a sketch of a tutorial quest. The problem is that the quest will pretty much tell you to go around the universe looking for stuff and to bring them to someone somewhere. Yes, you have to figure out by yourself where are the stuff they asked for, along with who and where are "us" from the message. And you'll probably die in real life before you figure out how many of those you could have found.

[v7.6.1] That's about when you'll figure out that other players might be able to help you.. so you decide to give the chat a try. Then you'll hit enter to start chatting and say hi... it won't work.. so you'll try to say "testing"... then the chat willl open with "esting" and you'll find out that the developers decided to innovate and T is the hotkey to start chatting. All fine until you notice you're going in a random direction for a while and try to move your ship. Then you'll notice they innovated even more and the escape button doesn't close the chat... all you can do is say "wwwwasdadsdwasdaswddsdawdsdawsdwomfg how do I close chat?". Then someone will tell you to send an empty message to close it. Still all fine.

There are some players that will really be helpful whenever they can, and some that will tell you to go play CoD. And you'll probably be directed to the wiki. Don't go. You might feel scammed if you see the part that reads "We currently have 113 articles about the free-to-play MMORPG set in an Infinite Universe". It didn't feel very free-to-play when I bought it here in steam.

Anyways, after a while you'll feel lost and unsure if you did complete the tutorial mission or not. This will be solved a few hours later when you figure out what the mission dude meant by checking your PDA and you'll see that they actually wanted you to deploy a station. It wasn't just if you wanted a challenge. That was the mission.

Then you'll feel desperate because you have no idea how to accomplish that. And at this point anything seems to take at least a couple weeks of non-stop gameplay to be accomplished. Then you find out that the little triangle button is where you get missions from. "So that's what the chat people were talking about! Holy Crap! 17x323?????". Yup, the best paying mission is offering you about $4000 to travel 340 sectors. It takes a bit more than 2 minutes to cross 1 sector. Which seems perfectly reasonable given that it would only take like 13h of gameplay each direction and you only need about 5 million to get started. So.. if everything goes well.. you should be able to grab a cargo ship in about 3 years of gameplay (rl time). Then you can start gathering assembly parts to work on a station and complete the tutorial mission.

[v7.6] That's when you decide to just enjoy the environment and fly around exploring the universe. You're almost starting to enjoy the game and you suddenly stumble upon an unknown planet! You can name it! Or maybe not. The game asks you to "donate" in order to be able to claim objects (to name planets and stars). What in the seven hells do they mean by donating after you just spent so much for the early access of the game (which might eventually turn out to be just for the early access if the wiki is right). I have no idea. No one online was able to explain. But it seems like it means exactly what the text says... after you purchase, there are parts of the gameplay that will require you to make "donations".

If you pretend you didn't see that and refrain from deleting the game immediately, you might stumble upon the "wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww Nebula". That was the apex of the gameplay for me. I couldn't stop laughing when I imagined the player wondering wtf was wrong with the ship that wouldn't move because the game was setting the name for the nebula instead of controlling the ship.

[v7.6.. still can't place orders, but the npc stations have purchase orders so you can sell some of the stuff you find] Then you might decide to go to the trade hub people were talking about and make some profit out of the stuff you looted. Only to find out that "You must own this station to place orders". So... you need a station to get the money to buy a ship to get the pieces to build the station you need. Either that or you can spend the next few years holding the space bar to save fuel and navigate around the universe on quests that pay nothing.

That's about it. This game is not slow paced. This game is too slow to even see something slow paced. It's a slower version of a browser based game adapted so you have to actually spend the countess hours in-game instead of clicking and coming back in a few hours/days. And the extremly slow speed made no sense to me given that the universe is infinite.

[turns out that the bug wasn't about having no station, but the map won't show up the edges of the sectors when zoomed out. The station exists right in the border of two sectors and it's pretty tricky to find unless you imagine that zooming in would allow you to see farther.] Other than that, no one was able to explain to me why the game said I claimed a sector but had no station or deployable units on it and couldn't deploy the units I found there because "someone" had claimed it. I'm just guessing that's a random bug and the game shouldn't have said I claimed it in the first place.

This review will be totally honest. When I first started playing I was very confused on what to do. This was mainly because the game doesnt tell you the controls only that you should go and scan everything. Well this is true, to get any loot worth your time you need to fly into the far reaches of space and scan things. There you will find good loot like ships. Now that I know how to play this game seems fun. Right now I can't recomend this game due to it's $30 price tag and it's lack of tutorial. This game is on early access so things are bound to change but at this point in time, I can't recommend this game.
