[engadget] Kerbal Space Program 2!!!

source: https://www.engadget.com/2019/08/19/...-arrives-2020/


Quote:
It's been four years since Kerbal Space Program (KSP) -- the spacecraft building and flight simulation game -- officially launched. While Elon Musk once called the title "awesome" and joked that SpaceX used KSP for testing software, it was due for a refresh. Today, Private Division announced that Kerbal Space Program 2 (KSP2) will arrive in 2020. As part of the reveal, it released cinematic trailer and a (dramatic) developer story.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=P_nj6wW6Gsc

According to the developers, KSP2 has been "fully redesigned from the ground up to meet the demands of modern and next-generation space exploration." This version imagines what the future space program could look like. It comes with new animated tutorials, an improved user interface and fully revamped assembly and flight instructions. The game uses next-gen engines, parts and fuel, and you'll be able to explore even further reaches of space with interstellar flight. You'll also be tasked with building colonies -- a fitting addition as NASA prepares for extended stays on the Moon and human exploration of Mars.

AFAIK Private Division are responsible for the console port of KSP. The first one I got in alpha in 2013 and followed it all the way, it was a PC game with a large modding community that got ported to consoles once it became popular. This next one with Take-Two in control of the franchise I fear will be a 'AAA' console game ported to the PC just like all the rest. I wonder if they'll even retain modding?

I'm interested in more details and certainly interested in the game itself, and if nothing else at all, that cinematic announcement trailer is absolutely fantastic.

note - don't expect those graphics in 2.0... game's still unity.

The released video says "pre alpha game play". It is based on Unity 2019 which I have not played on yet, but I have played on Unity 2018 and see nothing unusual in the videos I have seen so far.

That is also clearly labeled. What they are showing is how the parts in KSP are going to be higher rez in KSP2. Plus there are new parts. This game is about building things and then seeing if they actually work, not cutting edge graphics. The scenes where things fall and crash are the norm, not the exception.


The biggest complaints in the forums are about the conglomerate that now owns KSP2.

i'm aware, i simply stated this for the folks who can't/choose not to read

i'm pretty hyped. My KSP career didn't go anywhere as extreme as some, but I look forward to all the new stuff. I may have to finally use some mods. Seems most folks were able to achieve their feats with MechJeb.

i wonder if we could import our existing universe, so we can go rescue those we left behind many muns ago.

biggest complaints are from people that would also sell out their smash success creation? sounds about right.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
