What do all the stats do?

Postby Verden Leafglow » Wed Jan 24, 2018 3:23 pm

Hi, there!

Is there anywhere that describes what all the ship stats do, ex. how shields work, how evasion works, what towers are, and so on...the help in the game doesn't describe what these things are and the wiki has no additional information.

Thanks!

It's been so long ago that even I don't remember.

Shields might be just another layer of HP - the idea was to make these absorb energy-based damage and provide an additional resistance against electronic warfare effects, but i don't know if those things actually made it.
Evasion is either flat chance to fully evade an attack or (if ships have accuracy) it will be measured against the accuracy of the attacker to determine the actual chance to evade.
Towers go in the extra slots i believe - they're similar to drones that a carrier can launch.

So it happens that I've managed to [mostly] figure out what things do...sometimes information shows up in the hints at the beginning of each level; it just would have been nice to know some of these things when I started...


Now that I've played through and gotten used to the game, I must say I really like it, I understand it, and I think it has plenty of potential. I saw your post in 2011 that suggested you might want to try a Star Mass 2 at sometime - would you still be interested in that? I do believe it could be quite the solid game. I've taken note of a number of things that would benefit the game greatly in my opinion (not new features or taking away from your design - just detail work that makes the game more tedious than it needs to be). Anyways - I love simple games like this! They're just what the soul needs to rest every so often...

I doubt I'll do any programming any time soon, if ever - things are just too busy. After HD3 i had started preparing a bunch of stuff for a huge turn-based rpg, so if i do get started again, i'm likely to focus on that idea first.

Star Mass was based on an older game of mine that was quite complicated - basically a fleet vs fleet battle simulator with lots (too much) detail.

Man, a turn-based RPG sounds amazing, Greywing. I hope you end up making this game. Old school, baby!
