New game made by myself - Imperios Estelares
« on: February 16, 2021, 03:56:22 am »
Hi

I want to invite you to play Imperios Estelares a space strategy game (4X class), made from scratch by myself. It is available for Linux and Windows, in english and spanish.

You can download it at https://iestelares.foroactivo.com/ forum, news and download section > last version.

Some images of the game in the attachment.

Enjoy it!

A very ambitious and interesting project.

I played a while and TBH can't say a lot yet, because I found the UI a bit much. I spent 10 minutes to figure out how to send a ship. I also spent 15 minutes trying to start a construction, and failed. Also I never know if a button has worked or not, making it really hard to find my way around. I don't know how to examine a planet which is not colonized by me. So in short I don't really know how to play - all I managed is set research and send military ships to other systems.

But it's just the UI. The underlying game is really promising. I really like ship graphics, alien races look dope. Will keep an eye on your project.

Thanks for the feedback.

Well the controls are: green words does some action, yellow shows information.

If you want to inspect a planet, you first must click on the star that you want to see or you can go to Defense or Civilization menu and select the planet from the list.

This is explained in the Tutorial, but now i see that it must be enhanced to do more explicit.

If you want to select a ship, you must click on the symbol <
These symbols appears in the starmap.

I will do a videotutorial with this explanations.

Yes, it is in english and spanish. It will take your operating system language as default, but if it's not in english or spanish, the game select english as default.

And yes, it is moddable. The modding instructions are in the forum of the game.

Yes, there is a basic tutorial in the game. Go to "options" and there is the tutorial and an encyclopedia, where you can know about the researchable techs, ships, planets and game basic concepts.

In the "options" you can change resolution, language, volume of sounds, music and you can load or unload the mods.

Hi.

Ok i will check, because for default it mus be working in english if your locale is not that language or spanish. Thanks for the feedback.

Ok.

Yes i know where is the problem. The game is programmed to open a folder in Documents\<user> named iestelares to write config, saved games and mod files. If your route is in kanji or other alphabet, the game will not launch.

I need to do a patch to fix this behavior.

The site is in english and spanish, but the messages are allowed in any of these languages. If you have any doubts, you can contact me Calvarez.

I recommend to use google translator, i use too if i have a doubt, because english is not my natural language.
