I am a massive fan of 'Avorion' [Steam] as this Early Access space sandbox has a lot going for it and it just got a major update. I am also considering setting up a GOL server for it!

This new update will mean a re-design of your ships, so be warned. The flight model has been reworked and you now need to make use of three new blocks: Directional Thruster, Gyro Array, Inertia Dampeners.

It also introduces a group system, so you can group up with fellow pilots to explore and conquer the galaxy. You will see members of your group display on-screen and on the map, making it easy to find each other.

There's also now a server browser, making it much easier to join servers if you're planning to do some online play. The developer also enabled password-protected servers, making it a bit more friendly to manage if you want to restrict it to a community (like GOL).

It also includes tons of bug fixes of course, making the entire experience more stable.

I am thinking about running a server for it, but I need to know if there's interest in it. Let me know in the comments if you would be interested in it.

I bought the game first day...
sadly I'm still not able to play it.
It freezes (IN MY CASE) every time when I try to create a new galaxy.
I haven't found a solution for this issue yet.

I really... really want to play this game...

I bought the game and really like it as well. I don't think I will have enough time to invest into it, but it would be nice to have a gol server, especially if the new update encourage team play, which was not the case earlier.

Did you guys know that the game is developed on Linux? Yep, it's true

If only it ran at anywhere near acceptable framerates on my 3440x1440 screen, I'd love to jump on multiplayer but it's unfortunately a bit of a slideshow currently.

EDIT: Everyone, please ignore that. It was a driver issue, not the game.

GOL Starmade server?


cRaZy-bisCuiT commented on 21 March 2017 at 7:53 am UTC

The graphics looks pretty similar to the X series. Does it also play like that?

That would be a reason to buy the game.

It's been a while since I played X, but as I remember it, not really. It's a bit more like EVE done in Minecraft.

I registered an account to say I'd love to connect to a GOL Avorion server. I've played it a bit, but would love to have a more "alive" universe than just my machine at home!

Nor MantisGOL Starmade server?

A Starmade Server might be nice. Had problems with that game though, mouse reset to centre every time I passed into a new sector. Really annoying in dogfights. It's fun to build ships together anyhow.
