What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access provides us the best opportunity to reach the largest engaged audience possible. Having a passionate & invested community with a willingness to provide immediate feedback is key to our iterative design approach.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that, as of our Early Access release we are ~18 months away from a streamlined Core Module release (including time in Beta testing). It should be mentioned that unexpected items and delays can pop up during development that could alter this estimate; although we will do everything we can to minimize the impact of such events when/if they occur.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will include 3 unique playable ships as well as a hybrid scripted/dynamic single player campaign.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Rogue System is currently in a playable Alpha state with a single pilot-able ship & multiple scripted tutorial missions representing roughly 1/10 of the final game content.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We've offered Rogue System at a discount during its Early Access development, so the price should increase once we achieve a feature complete build.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will continue regular build releases & developer updates while soliciting community comment on bugs & features requests.”

Checking In

Hi all,

It was pointed out to me that, while I update the discussion forum on update progress, it's been a good while since I actually posted a News announcement. So, I thought I'd pop on and do that now.

As you can obviously tell, it's been a rather long, difficult development cycle for this upcoming EVA update. While not trying to make excuses, there were a few things working against me this time--a fair amount of art; a feature that had never been prototyped before; and some personal issues here at home, in all honestly. I'm happy to say I'm on the tail end of the work now, so I expect the new update by the end of the month (or VERY shortly thereafter ) assuming nothing else gets in the way.

Again, with this next update, you'll be able to put on an EVA suit (EVAS), depressurize the ship's airlock, and then exit the ship and perform an EVA. This will be first-pass, basic functionality; and I'll expand on it from there.

The following update, after some discussion on the forum, will be a "gameplay" update, in that I'll try to take everything we currently have and build some new missions up around it. This will give you all something new to do and hopefully help pass the time for the update after that, which will again be somewhat art-heavy.

Update CONTROL is Available

While I had intended to only do a partial update to the control management code (and then spend the second half of the update time on airlock art), it turned into an all out overhaul of the command binding system. Just about everything was reworked and refined, both to fix bugs as well as to add functionality that has been asked for previously. Here's a list of some of the new features and fixes:

  • Ability to bind to full and/or split axis (both 50/50 as well as user-defined ranges)
  • Support for toggle/rocker switches, such as those on the Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog
  • False positives when attempting to assign a control to a command should be completely fixed
  • Controller disconnect/reconnect is now handled gracefully for controllers that have bindings assigned to them. Controllers that do not are ignored
  • It's now possible to use combinations of keyboard modifiers for all buttons, keys AND axes (ex. SHIFT+CTRL+A)
  • Commands can now have multiple binding assignments, and controls can now be bound to more than one command
  • It's now possible to map to the mouse wheel
Along with these, another important addition was a change to the ingame UI for tutorial and subtitle messages. Long strings will no longer overrun the messagebox. This is a big plus for those folks who were interested in helping with the localization process. Finally, for those that were asking, since I was doing a bunch of control work, I added incremental zoom in/out, which by default is now mapped to the mouse wheel.

I AM now starting one the airlock and EVA suit artwork; and I hope to have at least the airlock in the game for the next update....

As always, thanks for everyone's support!

About This Game

Rogue System's goal is to depict the possibilities of space exploration and combat within a realistic environment--choosing not to ignore the "science" in science-fiction. Key features do/will include proper orbital mechanics for all objects in space; detailed ship system control, functionality, inter-dependency and damage reaction; and the ability to move freely from one ship to another, EVA, and effect repairs while in flight.

Rogue System’s Core Module (CM) will be a complete campaign-driven sim on its own. It utilizes both dynamic as well as scripted missions to allow for greater replay-ability while telling an intriguing story.

Finally, Rogue System is fully moddable, allowing both DCI as well as the sim’s community to add new ships, missions, and even campaigns.

Later, Extension Modules (EM) will add even more gameplay.
