- Digital compass readout added below tape compass readout.
- Planetary water shader effect now fades in smoothly as player descends into atmospheres.
- TrackIR system updated to prevent DLL error message dialogue when no TrackIR software is present.
- Support for mapping throttle and inertial forward/reverse thrusters to the same axis channel added.
- Fleet system now displays 'fleet ship left' message when hired AI ship departs group due to friendly fire.
- HUD pitch ladder now smoother and more accurate for planetary atmospheric flight.
- 'Mouse Point Rev Y' and 'Mouse Point Roll X Rev Y' flight control modes added.

Edit 12-28-2014:

A quick fix patch has been made available for this build. The update fixes an issue where a 'limb error' could appear when one player tried to connect to another as a gun turret operator in multiplayer. The update is now live on Steam.

Über dieses Spiel

Die Ware verschachern, während man an feindlichen Patrouillen vorbeischleicht, die besten Piloten des Sektors zu einem Rennen herausfordern, wertvolle Diamanten abbauen, in gnadenlosen Verhandlungen um das eigene Leben oder das von anderen feilschen, einen Spionageauftrag für einen neugierigen Energiekonzern erledigen, verschmutzte Solarpaneele reinigen, danach einen ungeduldigen Fahrgast an sein Ziel bringen... und das alles an einem gewöhnlichen Tag. Im Leben eines unabhängigen Söldners geht es selten gemächlich zu. Mal arbeiten Sie für Ihre Vertragspartner, mal in eigener Sache, um Ruf, Ehre und Vermögen auszubauen. Ihr Raumschiff wartet, Ausgangspunkt Ihres Abenteuers ist das Sonnensystem Sapphire.
In Evochron schreiben Sie als unabhängiger Söldner Ihre eigene Geschichte, die sich nach Ihren Entscheidungen, Fehlern und Erfolgen verändert. Jeder Spieler bereichert das Spiel mit seinen individuellen Fähigkeiten und Interessen, so können Sie Clans bilden, um kooperative Ziele zu meistern oder sich als Einzelkämpfer durch die ewigen Weiten einer echten Weltraum-Simulation schlagen.
Hauptmerkmale:
  • Sie haben freie Wahl, das Spiel stellt Ihnen keinerlei Restriktionen, Bedingungen, oder Limits, entwickeln Sie Ihren Charakter ohne Obergrenzen für Attribute und Fähigkeiten. Erleben Sie die ultimative Freiheit und spielen Sie das Spiel so, wie Sie möchten. Ihr Handeln wirkt sich direkt auf Ihre Rolle in der Welt aus und beeinflusst Ihren Ruf, Reichtum, Fortschritt und Rang im Spiel.
  • Wählen Sie aus unterschiedlichen Spielarten, darunter Rennen, Spionage, Handel, Warentransport, Begleitschutz, Kampf (sowohl in zivilen als auch militärischen Zonen), Erforschung, Rohstoffabbau, Ausrüstungs-Reiniger, Anführer, Bauwesen und Schiffskonstruktion. Es gibt viele Wege, in diesem Spiel an Geld zu kommen.
  • Das weitläufige, nahtlos verbundene Universum erlaubt Ihnen, ohne Ladebildschirme an jeden erdenklichen Ort zu gelangen. Die Welt von Evochron ist nicht in 'Abschnitte' oder 'Räume' geteilt, die durch Jumpgate-'Türen' getrennt sind. Weder Passierpunkte noch Fahrtrouten begrenzen Ihre Freiheit, reisen Sie, wohin Sie wollen - nichts wird Sie aufhalten. Tauchen Sie in die Atmosphäre von Planeten ein, landen Sie in Städten und Handelszentren, bauen Sie wertvolle Rohstoffe ab oder suchen Sie nach versteckten Artefakten. Verstecken Sie sich in Nebula-Wolken vor fremden Sensoren oder manövrieren Sie in ausgehöhlte Asteroiden. Reisen Sie von Planet zu Planet, von Stern zu Stern und von Sonnensystem zu Sonnensystem.
  • Dank der gebündelten Gameplay-Architektur, können Sie Ihr Schiff samt Ausrüstung, Geld, Besatzung und Gütern sowohl im Einzel- als auch im Mehrspielermodus nutzen.
  • In kooperativen Missionen werden sämtliche Spieler der Gruppe ausgezahlt. Arbeiten Sie mit anderen Spielern zusammen, um anspruchsvolle Aufträge erfüllen zu können, die deutlich mehr abwerfen.
  • Bauen Sie ganze Raumstationen, um das Universum des Spiels dynamisch um neue Handelsrouten, Versorgungspunkte und Wirtschaftszentren zu erweitern. Das Online-Mehrspielersystem speichert die von Spielern konstruierten Stationen auf dem Server, sodass alle anderen Spieler Zugang zu den neuen Stationen und Handelsrouten haben, die durch Sie erstellt wurden.
  • Spezialisierte Industrien und Ökonomien ermöglichen realistisch schwankende Preise und Verfügbarkeiten.
  • Investieren Sie Ihren Reichtum in den Entwurf und die Konstruktion neuer Schiffe, kaufen Sie Handelsware oder stärkere Waffen, installieren Sie bessere Ausrüstung, heuern Sie neue Mitglieder für Ihre Crew an, stellen Sie andere Schiffe in Ihren Dienst und vieles mehr.
  • Die komplexe Physik-Simulation berechnet geschwindigkeitsabhängige Beschleunigungskurven und kalkuliert Masse-, Schub- und Vektor-Faktoren. Das Flugmodell, basierend auf der realistischen 'newtonschen' Masseträgheit bei Nullgravitation, erlaubt Drei-Wege-Rotation und Drei-Wege-Richtungskontrolle mit variabler Tastenbelegung. Das Hilfssystem erlaubt dank erweiterter Trägheitsdämpfer ein simple Kontrolle des Schiffs im Weltraum, in planetarischer Atmosphäre und unter dem Einfluss anderer Schwerefelder.
  • Anders als für das Genre üblich, ist Ihre Umgebung kein starres 'Hintergrundbild'. Nutzen Sie Nebula-Wolken, Asteroidenfelder, Planeten-Atmosphären, Monde und Ihr weiteres Umfeld zum Schutz oder als strategisches Element. Ihre Umgebung hat Einfluss auf physikalische Gegebenheiten wie die Anziehungskraft, aber auch den Treibstoffverbrauch sowie Ihre Sensor- und Sichtweite.
  • Das Spiel unterstützt Tastatur, Maus, Gamepads und Joysticks. Wählen Sie die Steuervorrichtung, welche Ihnen am meisten zusagt.
  • Das Spiel unterstützt die TrackIR 3D-Sichtfeldsteuerung von Natural Point, mithilfe derer Sie sich in allen sechs Stufen im Cockpit umsehen können.

"I saw a distant planet with rings like saturn, as i flew closer i could see the rings were made of tiny particles of water as i drifted through them in my starship" - 8.5/10

EM is a sandbox space pilot simulator. It provides you with all the tools you need to live the life of an intrepid space explorer as you blast around an (almost) infinite galaxy filled with collossal space stations, glittering nebula, astroid belts, and planets.

How you choose to use this sandbox is very much up to you. Want to be a fighter pilot? No problem. Want to mine and trade precious minerals? You got it. Feel the need to build a fleet and have your own armada? Ok. Wanna explore the farthest reaches of the universe either by jumpgate or just pointing your ships nose at a distant star and pushing on the throttle? Oh yes! Fancy visiting the surface of that giant blue planet over there? Yep. Maybe cruise across mountains and dock at the local trade city for repairs and fuel? Sure.

Whatever you want to do EM has you covered.

However, despite the fact that it is probably obvious by now that I am impressed with this game it is only fair that I point out a few low points and ♥♥♥♥les.

Firstly, the graphics. They are pretty dated. Still, what is here is all done pretty well. Distant stars flare light across your cockpit, nebula and gas clouds sparkle and shimmer as electrical storms rage, and giant space transporters lumber across the sky. On the downside the textures are all pretty bland up close. This is not so bad in space but it is on the planet surfaces that this really lowers the immersion. The actual concept of being able to fly from outer space, into the planet's atmosphere, and right down to the tree line is brilliant and the mechanics of it work really well. Unfortunately when you get there you see that the surface is just barren and featureless. A few sparodic trees and one or two cities is not enough to save this part of the game. A real shame as the actual descending to, and launching back up from, the planets is a lovely experience. Its just annoying that there is nothing to do when you get there.

Secondly, this is no hand holder. You will need to use the forums and wiki's to get to grips with this game. My six and a half hours playtime probably equates to about half of that as actual 'game' time. Still, nothing worth having is easy and i found the learning quite fun.

Lastly, the quests are pretty generic. You will make more money in ten mins of mining than by doing a dozen starter quests. Also there is a very limited amount of detail at times as so far as the living, breathing galaxy goes. There are lots of other ships, constant radio chatter, and dozens of busy space ports, but i'm yet to see anything along the lines of real faction interactions. Still, not been playing long so we'll see

Don't let these points put you off, there are a few mods available for graphical tweaks and the community is still pretty active and helpful for the learning side of things.

EM is a wonderful opportunity to just grab a spaceship and jet off to the stars. You'll be glad that you did.

A fairly good game with some nice ideas. It's a bit like Freelancer, but a little more "real" and more involved. The multiplayer is where the majority of the fun is at, but you will find it lacks depth. Once you have enough money to buy the best ship in the game (which does not take long at all), you will struggle to find anything to do except explore.

The control of your ship never seems quite right, and you find yourself constantly "sliding" everywhere. I have no problem playing space games with inertial dampeners off, but something about this just feels wrong - it takes forever to make course changes if you have any kind of speed.

The developer is absolutely brilliant though. I visited their forums to ask some questions and instantly got a reply from the developer, who implemented a new mechanic to the game based on my questions and feedback. I was stunned at how welcoming and kind the community is for this game. That alone is worth its weight in gold.

A good game, that could be a great game.

I was happy to buy the game when it was out, but been playing it recently and I must say it is really limited in a number of options. I think it is fun however the limited choice of ships to buy is a real killer for me. As I pursued a career of a miner/trader, I only could install a limited number of cargobays which is no fun a all. I wanted to buy a bigger ship, like a big trade vessel, but there are none.. no big ships to command.

I have played around 10 hours now and I do like the scenery and the graphics are pleasing to me, the game is well constructed as in the graphics as well landing on planets is nice. Sadly I can not make this a positive review as it´s not for me.

Well, do You remember what Ozu said in Freelancer?

"Ozu: Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best."

And its true. EM just proved it by itself. Game offers some variety of well-know ideas since first Elite, and really huge and open Universe with many secrets. Space combat is very dynamic, sometimes not so easy, trade is simple, but may be dangerous, mining, crafting and stations building are fine, missions as well, You can do whatever You like, even spending hours only exploring uncharted systems and trying to raise reputation among the forgotten and hostile colonists, if You find them.

Fighter, merchant, and gathering cargo , ship options are all player choicing. Travel around as a mercenary fighter to a variety of factions with different characteristic to each. For one looking for a more peaceful style, the merchant ship role is best suited. Going around from star to star, buying and trading goods, for each journey comes with beautiful galactic view. Lastly the gathering cargo ship plays hand-in-hand with both fighter and merchant, for materials can be gathered to be sold or build grand improved ships. Enjoy the view of a space simulation shipping game.

A bit niche but my kinada game, if you like open world games, and space sims, this oddly small dowload of a game is a thing to behold. If you do not like open world games and want story driven content then you may not like it. If however you are a fan of the old Elite series from the C64 then it is a must buy.

An excellent space combat simulator that has all the bells and whistles of most AAA titles; except it's made by one person. Don't blow this off as some clone or half-♥♥♥♥♥ attempt; this will give everyone who enjoys space combat sims plenty of entertainment. It may not be as polished or in-depth as games like Elite Dangerous or Star Citizen; but it is complete, and works 100%.

The star system is vast, mostly contained within our own Milkyway galaxy. I don't think any person has enough time to completely explore the whole area; as it would take thousands and thousands of hours to do so. There are many unexplored areas that are left for the player to find on their own; but there are plenty of "inhabited" planets and sectors in between to keep you busy.

There are planets with terrain, atmosphere, bases, vegetation, and resources that you will also need to explore, either by ship or on foot. You can customize your vessel almost however you want; from re-arranging the chassis and different sections, to customizing weapon platforms and even your character/crew.

The only "cons" that I have is the small (but active) community, and slow (but consistant) progress to perfection. However, these are easily forgivable since they are mostly my opinion, and theres still 1000x more to this game than just multiplayer and eye-candy.

There's really too much to write about, and I have barely scratched the surface. It's best to support a great and dedicated developer and see for yourself! It's cheap, and even goes on sale from time to time. Check out the official forums and SeeJay's www site for starcharts, information, and mods.

This is an often overlooked gem of a space sim. Known for a very steep learning curve, especially with the flight model within a newtonian physics engine. Amazing but challenging.

Works well with mouse + keyboard, gamepad (360 USB) and Joysticks (Logitech Extreme 3D Pro and CH Fighterstick). Doesn't need the newest system to run maxed and looks pretty damn amazing in most situations.

Vice (the creator) is an amazing individual. I've purchased the last two titles as well, playing the hell out of them learning as I go. The Evochron series has been a solid space sim series for those that want the pilot experience. So much has been accomplished with Mercenary, just been amazing to be a part of.

I play this and Elite Dangerous (currently Gamma 1.05) a lot, and if you're good in one, you'll do well in the other. Evochron has a lot to offer the person that doesn't need led by a carrot on a stick, especially if you go online (seamless online/offline experience btw, along with seamless world and seamless planetary landings) as there is plenty of fellow pilots looking to help you become a skilled ace.

Once you spend enough time to become a decent pilot in EvoMerc, and things start to click, trades become a fast income, combat stays intense but is amazing when you can beat several foes and have a couple of hired wingmen to back you up. Upgrading and designing your ship is awesome, the community is among the best without an elitist attitude towards newcomers, very welcoming.

If you want an amazing space sim that doesn't break the bank or your PC, but offers one of the best piloting experiences period, you cannot look past Evochron Mercenary. As I said before often overlooked, but appreciated by most that give it a chance. Anyone that has enjoyed space sims in the past, arcade or realistic, easy or challenging, will find something to like here.

Buy it! Support Vice and future Evochron upgrades/patches (he does this frequently and for years with each release) and future titles.

Sometimes you just have to hold your hand up and say ‘I don’t know how this was done’, and this is a classic example. Apparently this was made by one person, yet it has more depth and ambition than many ‘AAA’ game. Great graphics, absorbing gameplay, realistic physics and yes, full transition from space to atmospheric flight. While games such as the new Elite, promise such delights in the future this masterpiece has already been there.

Thoroughly recommend , one of the gems of PC gaming that is often overlooked

WOW!!! I can't believe there are so few reviews for this game. For me, this game is a gem! A diamond in the rough! Being a huge fan of space combat/sim games I have been patiently waiting for the genre to rebirth itself. I knew that with all of the new technology that is available that the space combat/sim genre would come back after a huge drop off that occured as soon as the FPS genre took off in the early 2000's. It was only a matter of time that all of the Wing Commander fans (and there are a lot of us) would beg for a new space sim. The time has finally come. Elite Dangerous and the long awaited Star Citizen are probably the two biggest space sims out there right now. Personally I am anticipating the full release of Star Citizen. I have already purchased the Star Citizen basic package and am calmly waiting for the full release. The only thing daunting about Star Citizen is that it is a "rich mans" game as you can purchase (for a hefty price) all different kinds of off the charts upgrades and package deals from the get go so you may have a huge advantage over the poor old fella like me. It seems that I am gonna have to grind it out like I have never ginded before to be a decent contender in Star Citizen... Which I will ho-heartedly and willingly do. Although Star Citizen seems to be a looong way from being completed... I have Evochron Mercenary to fufill my space sim appetite!

From the very beginning since I came across this "diamond in the rough", I was extremely excited to find that a game as in-debth as this for only $25! As I read all of the reviews I began to salivate as this game was exactly what I was looking for! Flying through space, doing what I want when I want! Hey look... There is a nice looking planet! I think I will go explore it and see what I can find. Simply point your ship at the planet, forward thrust and whoosh... you are entering the atmosphere... SEEMLESSLY! No docking a mother ship, no load times... You just fly on in, land, explore, trade, rest and then you leave just as easy as you landed. If mining is your thing... Just pull up to an asteroid and mine it! It is that easy! I have only just finished the training module and I know that this game is a for sure gig. The graphics my be a little dated. But if you gotta a decent rig all yoa gotta do is bump everything up to ultra and your set. The game is so rewarding that the graphics do not really matter. For what the game is and what it costs I thing that the graphics are quite pleasing. Where was I the last year or so and how come I have never heard of this game? Oh... I know. I was to busy reading about Star Citizen and Elite Dangerous to even think that there was another space sim out there. Thank God for Steam in pointing me in the right direction. Sometimes Steams suggestions are all wrong, but they got this one right on the button! Because of Evochron, I now have an awesome space sim to play while I am waiting for Star Citizen (and saving up some cash... Star Citizen is gonna be expensive as I think the FPS dlc is gonna run me a pretty penny). Seriously... If you are a space sim genre fan and are waiting for Star Citizen like I am and need something to hold you over... GET THIS GAME! Well honestly... If you are a space sim fan, you prabobly already own this game. Unfortunately I have been in the dark as this game has been around for awhile. I wish I would have known about this game sooner. Enough of the chit-chat. I am through with training and I want to go mine a couple of asteroids, and skim a few planets! Good luck and enjoy!

First that comes to mind is Holy Sh*t...(been playing this for about 5 hours) , I am a seasoned veteran of these type of games since first Elite on Commodore 64 back in the 80:s and this is the only one compared to that i can say that captures the same atmosphere and immersion..
I have Played Wing Commander series (Including privateer obviously), Federation of Free Traders, First Encounters,New Frontier,X-series and been in EVE-Online since 2008 ...
But now that i have found this gem... Goodbye social life :) Good bye EVE ..See ya later wife... Im off to Olympus Prime with my Pulsar class ship...
I dont want to upgrade my pc for Elite dangerous or Star Citizen ... this is both of them for me and for a good price...
If this truly is a work of a one man ..then 07 For you!!! Please keep on going!!

I can't believe I just found this game!!!!! I used to play star wars x-wing alliance years ago and have loved space sims ever since. I have been going crazy waiting for elite dangerous and a star citizen to be released, and in the mean time starting searching for a great space sim and BOOM I found it. I can't believe this was made by one guy and I don't get how it only could be 156 mb download. Totally awesome game! Love it. I just got done playing it for 8 hours straight.

It takes some time to get used to and you DON'T need a joystick, you can play it with mouse/keyboard perfectly fine. Once you get the hang of the mechanics of the game; outfitting your ship, accepting contracts, completing them properly, you'll get hooked.

The best space simulator i've ever played. Nothing has matched the sheer size of the game, as well as still include such great detail. the game itself is an interesting beast for sure, there is lots to learn and LOTS to discover, not including actually exploring the vast systems. The space/newtonian physics are incredible, and this game truly makes you feel as though you are in space. Grab a buddy to play this with, as playing alone makes you feel truly alone, as there are millions of kilometers between you and the other players.

Evochron Mercenary is a great, old-school style, freeform space sim. While it might come across as a bit boring to those not familiar with this type of game, those that are will likely have fond memories of Wing Commander: Privateer, and will find themselves sinking days--not hours--into this game. While the graphics may not be super triple-A level (it is an older game, and a smaller development team by far), they're still good, and have the advantage of running on a much wider range of hardware.

If you like free-form, space sim trading, combat, and just exploration, you owe it to yourself to check this game out.

If you like the concept of Elite: Dangerous but at 1/3 the cost, this is your game. Alternatively, if you've never played a space sim before, this is a good jumping off point.

Pros:
Works well with or without a joystick
Hours of gameplay; whether you're into blowing stuff up or mining, there's something to do.
Light Crafting Elements
Mix and match parts to create a ship you want, not a cookie cutter ship.
Large Universe to experience and lots going on


Cons:
Not as polished as E:D
Medium Learning Curve - It takes a bit to get used to the controls / config hotkeys for your tastes
Combat and other duties can get repetative if you have gamer A.D.D. (which I do)
Could use more varied types of quests and Steam Workshop assets

Overall this game is well worth the money and is pretty enjoyable. Early upgrades don't take forever to buy and the game doesn't waste your time with silly docking procedures like E:D does. As I said before, it's not as polished as other games in the genre, though it isn't lacking for visuals.

I feel bad that I have to compare it to Elite: Dangerous so much, but that is sort of the stardard right now even if this came out 2 years before it.

A good starter game for Space SIms. I use the word SIM lightly. The mechanics of the game are realistic. if you use your boosters in space you will fly in that direction. If you turn off your boosters, you will still fly in that direction. Dogfights are a little dull, and it can often feel like a basic fps in space. But, the sense of freedom is astounding. Atmospheric, beautiful. i recommend a few mods to tweak to your liking. Imagination can be a factor, use it or be bored. I spent a lot of time in the shipyard making custom ships of all sizes in an oddly different but versatile creation kit. However, in the end every ship felt very much the same. Same cockpit, almost same handling, no real difference in flying a freighter or a fighter. Can be a great casual game for exploring.

All the fun of a 4X space sim without any of the tedium of long travel times, tricky docking manouvres and complex 'spreadsheet management'.

I find that I can sit down and in an hour make meaningful progress and have fun. Its not a life sucking commitment like the X series.

I bought it because I wanted a space sim where I could fly down to the planet's surfaces, but there has been so much to do in space I haven't been down to 1 planet yet!
