Vega Strike 0.5.0

April 28th, 2008 by Crusader

After a long absence, Vega Strike, an open source space combat sim, has returned with a new release (thanks Free Gamer):

  • Shaders with normal maps
  • Better physics
  • More ships
  • Beautiful artistic contributions by our talented artists
  • Faster loading speeds
  • More intelligent autopilot for fast navigation
  • Preliminary deathmatch multiplayer support for LAN parties

Vega Strike

The developer blog also mentions the project’s long history:

This occasion also marks the 10 year anniversary of Vega Strike. If you go back to the archives and find the first blog posts, you can see the first public release was in april of 1998. With any luck, since this is 0.5.0, that means we’ll have 1.0.0 (the space sim to end all other spacesims) out in 2018 ;-)
