    Holy crap, how does that thing even MOVE?!? Also, ETA on beta invites? I’m REALLY hoping I get selected.

    Looks sweet. I hope it is balanced well so you don’t have ships with a million guns with no penalty.

      I would think the energy required to fire all those weapons would be quite immense. A million guns does little good if you only have 30 bullets.

        Yeah, and the build cost is also gonna be huge. And, if I remember correctly, custom ships get a separate scoreboard.

    I don’t think that we will ever need energy sources with so many reactors…

    Also, what is this gun behind the MK7’s?

    Wait… who are your Alpha testers? Did you pick them, or are they people you know? Just out of curiosity.

      In the past, it has generally been people active in the forms, and when the map modding group was still active for cw2 (there was an application for that group), there was an invite to the beta for cw3 in the private forum. Probably similar for PF, community engagement and all.

      I am a devote of the Creeper series. Would love to Beta test the latest (or Alpha, etc.) Will still buy the final version + 10 for friends. I have been a VG dev for 20 years. I’ve also supported many indies. Creeperworld, DROD/Caravel, Spiderweb/Avernum + many many more.
      Let me know what you’re looking for as far as investment goes. If you don’t need $ I’ll test and report back as needed.

    Custom Ships look sweet 😀 No doubt I’ll go power-mad every few games with a custom loadout. Some days there’s nothing quite as satisfying as ripping through your enemy with the force of a Supernova.
    At any rate, while custom ships are gonna be great, what I really want to see are the custom ship PIECES. The ones made by players in PRPL. I plan to take a crack at that myself. After beating the Campaign, of course. Gotta understand the existing features before I start adding in new ones. Incidentally, if I made my very own PRPL ship piece, would I be able to create a custom ship with it and then use that in existing levels? Particularly the campaign? Or would that be a stretch too far? Such a feature, if possible, would skyrocket replayability of the campaign immensely.
    Either way, I look forward to the day we can play this amazing-looking game. Keep up the excellent work, Virgil!

      Custom parts would imbalance the scoreboards though…
      Although I vaguely remember V saying he’d have separate scoreboards for stock ships and custom ships… or something like that.

        Correct, there is a dedicated scoreboard for customized fleets. Apparently there are three, but I’m not sure what the difference would be between, as I believe they’re called, “Customize Fleet” and “Sandbox Fleet”. Naturally there is one for the fleet the story mission or other stage has by default, so no need to worry about people muscling in on your times with overpowered stuff.

    Never fear the particles again with that ship xD

      Oh, I’m sure there’ll be plenty of reasons to fear particles in the future, don’t you worry.
      I don’t know what monstrosities Virgil is cooking up, but some missions might just require this kind of firepower.

      Yeah, there could very well be PRPL creations, if not by virgilw, then by the community. Also, don’t forget the enemy can build your ships.

    Ok, looks like I have another reason to consider getting a 3-or-more GB computer before my first car.

    still want to see an armor module for the hammer so edge part of the haul can take extensive damage before being destroyed. Mainly I see myself using it cut through the enemy struc on maps like the nest
