    Stargate Space Trading Game

    I've started creating a space trading game based on the world that stargate is set. The game is a 2D style space trading game and will be using the ideas of game play used in StarPort : GE and Star Sonata.

    I've started to throw together a small wiki of the bits and pieces of what the game will include.

    http://ketelle.devjavu.com/wiki/StarGateTrader

    I'm still coding the basic functionality into the game at the moment but am trying to come up with as much story boarding etc before I get too deep in to code and have to rewrite the whole thing due to a new direction of thought.

    Please read and see what you think, I'd love to hear some feedback and if you would like to be involved drop me an email with your area of skills and what you'd like to help with and I'll get back to you.

    Update:

    I'm curently in the early stages of development. I have some basic game play working at the moment :
    • You can fly your ship around the solar system.
    • Fire weapons.
    • Take damage by hiting astoroids, planets and getting too close to the sun.
    • Shields Drain when damaged and Recharge over time.
    • Power Drains when you fire weapons.


    My aim is to have a solar system sorted where you can dock with a spacestation or colony and do some trading. When I get this done I'll post a demo for people to try.

        Thanks Name.

        I'm still trying to think up some more story missions for the other routes and chapters. but I put that on hold to spend some more time on getting the first stage demo completed.
        If you or any one has some ideas for story missions then I'd be glad to hear from you.

              Good luck!

              Ronon looses his temper over the weapons console and starts punching it
              Sheppard: Easy, Chewie! Those buttons are your friends! Just keep trying!
              Ronon: I'M TRYING!!!!

                    As soon as I have a demo available and require testers I'll let you know.

                    Choose Race - Not quite

                    The plan was you could select your characters background
                    Character Selection
                    you would be able to choose:
                    • Ex-SGC Member
                    • Rebel Jaffa
                    • Ex-Trust Member
                    • Hebridan Trader
                    • Planet Trader
                    • Lucian Alliance Member


                    Was thinkng of adding more characters when I could think of them. So now tha you have mentioned it I'll add an Asgard Trader or something to the mix.

                    Rramklov thankyou for spotting that typo, Yes it should have been X-303.


                    Also I've setup a StarGate Trader Twitter where I'll be adding ideas and progress updates as I go along.

                        Yes I'll still post updates here, but they will not be as frequent as on Twitter.

                        Twitter Tweets will be like:
                        "I've finally got the shield glow animate finished"
                        or
                        "5hrs of bug tracking it was just a simply typo"

                        Where as the Forum posts will be more of a summary of the Tweets and will include more description / details

                          i hate bullies

                          the fate of the world is hanging in the balance and your've been sitting in your truck finishing this?
                          i believe it was double or nothing.
                          ok, 3 letters, 23 across, the atomic weight of boron, the answer is 10.
                          yes.
                          you wrote the word fat.
                          your point?

                            Currently I have no idea. Every time I think I'm close I think of something else that needs doing. I might release a pre-demo. that will just have the solar system and your ship to fly around, without the station docking or any other ships in system (have not done the AI yet).

                              i think in terms of current story its a bit too limited. its essentially SG1 with a little difference.

                              perhaps place it in a new universe. you can be wraith, Pegasgard, traveller, genii, etc. or start in the MW. there is a kind of ferry between the galaxies. its expensive. and you essentially travel around and find out what is different.
