Iron Armada (Open Pre-Alpha) 0.1.3-linuxfix


1 Screenshot

Information

The official client for Iron Armada. This client is only for testing, only functions when the server is live, and will not work when the final game is released.

How to play: 

  1. Download the game, make sure you have an internet connection and the latest version of Java installed. 
  2. Start the game by launching IronArmada.bat in the /bin folder! 
  3. Enter your username, and press join! That's it! 

Some gameplay tips: 

  • Each team has a team core. This core represents the mothership. If it is destroyed, your team loses and the round is reset! 
  • Mine resources by shooting asteroids, and also enemy ships! 
  • Currently only cockpits that are next to reactors are able to fly the ship! Place down more reactors to generate more power for your thrusters/weapons, and use batteries to increase your power reserve! 
  • Press "X" to switch to "Marine Mode" which grants you an automatic plasma rifle. This is of course not balanced, and only implemented for testing! 

Please keep in mind that this game is still in an early state of development! We are currently in pre-zeta ;D many aspects of the game still need to be built up, polished, and balanced! 


Thanks for helping us test Iron Armada!

How do you use the client?

You click the download link. Extract it and then run the batch file in the bin folder.

@Dennis Premoli Ask about it in the discord server, Someone is sure to help you out there. I had the same problem in an earlier build of IA, but I forgot exactly how I fixed it.

You probably need to install java, we haven't bundled redistributions with the client yet.

The game mechanics are hard to understand. My ship ended up not working.

 

I just updated the description with tips on how to play, keep in mind all these gameplay mechanics are only placeholder, and will be changing in the near future.

So is there no way to open this up and tool around on your own? Just to learn, practice and see what works/build a super ship?
Will nothing open if the server isn't online?

Ok, here's what I learnt up to now(couple of days playing):

1. You need to install JAVA for your desktop in order for the client to open. ---> https://www.java.com/it/download/ TO AVOID CLIENT CLOSING IMMEDIATELY

2.Download game ---> 

 

3. Extract file and run the batch file in "bin" folder" and wait while it connects and starts the game(C:...\IronArmada-0.1.0\bin)

4. The game has no single player so it'll work until the servers are up which has been pretty much every time for me in these days.

###Discord is NOT needed, it is solely for help and playing with voice.###

5. You need to place the first reactor behind or in front of your first chair in order for the thrusters to fire(bug??!)

6. Engine exhaust has a damage radius of about 7 blocks behind it(which I think is a bit extreme as it stops the creation of additional engine pods)

7.Prices are missing or are hard to see but: Tile block; Chair, Thruster, Turrets; Armor; Battery; Reactor. This should be the order more or less.

8.To mine you can use your gun, or by hand in construction mode(not pressing x), while standing on the asteroid

9.Mined resources are distributed only to you, not your crew. 

10. You can place down an additional chair to use some of the guns to mine at the same time as others.

11.First placed chair controls all thrusters.

12. While sitting in chair press LMB to free camera and pan around. Click again to re-center on chair.

Current bugs(or thought to be):

   -Score screen name glitch

   -FIrst chair needs reactor behind it in order for thruster to fire.

   -Blocks can be glitched into one another and cause lag.

Hi just to clear up a couple things

5. is intentional not a bug

6. engines need 5 blocks spacing behind them

7.To get part specs hit F2 when that part is selected as engineer/pilot

11.any chair next to a reactor can control the thrusters

the name screen has been fixed

how can you be unbanned i got perma banned and banned from the discord

Lol no mention of what you did to get banned?  I'm guessing that if it was for a real reason, you can't be.  At the very least I don't see why they would unban someone who was banned for a legit reason at least until much later releases, when there are some fixes in place to make it not so easy to troll.

You then spammed the chat begging for an unban. When the game releases, the ban list will be reset.
