What sets game this apart from other games where I can construct things in a medieval setting?

it's based on the successful Space Engineers game and engine and it is early access because it is not feature complete but they would like people to play their game while being aware that it is not 100% finished [unlike Evolve]. thank you.

there are other gifs floating around like the one where a car rolls up and deploys barriers to hold enemies in and burn them to death (not the nazi one) and they're cool, lots of cool stuff can be done in this engine already

I like the setting but it definitely seems a little barren. I hope they add lots of fun little decorative items like paintings and shields/crests and lights and shrubs. I want to cannon someone's garden.

the idea i'm having with my friends is we're going to have a survival (resource gathering) server where it's co-op and then we're going to have a creative server where we blow up each others' castles with catapults and poo poo

space engineers has a faction system in it already that i'm sure is going to be in this

whoops i was thinking about another cool game. my apologies for not having a memory.

if i could have a feature in something like this, it'd be to save a chunk like Minecraft so you can save a bigass complex castle and see who can mess it up the worst and then reset it each time

They have a template save system they could carry over from SE if they wanted to. Hopefully it doesn't get shouted down by 'realism' idiots.

Oh poo poo it would actually be a ton of fun to recreate Helms Deep and other cool movie battle scenes and just go to town on them with catapults, I look forward to somebody else doing the construction work so I can focus on the smashing!

Yeah this pretty much doubles the game's value if you can save 'em.

And you could have challenge maps. Hit the red tower without damaging the rest!

Space Engineers is cool for what it is, but I think you have to be really into creating complex tubes and wizzbang stuff to love it. Hopefully this game strikes the right balance between simplicity and awesome building/smashing capabilities.

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation. I actually named my daughter after the Pink ranger and will provide proof if challenged.


What do you do if a poo poo-head is trebucheting your place? Are you able to somehow run out and stop their poo poo, or perhaps make your own defenses and all?

In the preview vid, the guy just sort of fled his castle

Could I also just run up and hit him with a hammer or would counter-catapults be the only option here?

It could be cool to set up two adjacent castles and just go nuts on each other, Worms-style.

Hey baby I think we Havel lot in common

So...why would you build a castle for yourself; as in, just for one person (namely you)? Wouldn't it be more fun and faster to just be the guy that builds the catapult?

The only thing this game needs to incentivize building is a flag. Once you put a flag down somewhere people are gonna build like gently caress around that flag.

OP I thought of another question: Are there swords and armor in this? Not to wear, just to spend hours and hours making near a forge. Realism is important to me

This game will feature a great deal of historical accuracy, such as having a lifespan 1/3 of its future clone.

Everything is subject to the needs of intelligence, for geniuses like me. If we actually solve problems, people won't need me and people like me, and this is a travesty without end. You have to squeeze the poor so they know their place, and you fucking commies forget that.
