Add-ons now available!
11 months ago – Tue, Oct 09, 2018 at 12:58:39 AM

Hello everyone! 

Between the Stars has reached 78% of our goal and we still have 8 days left! 

We’ve added a few add-ons that you can add to your reward tier, among which you can find:

* You need to have Captain Early Bird (16€) reward tier or above to get add-ons.
** The example images shown on the add-ons are representations and not final.


How does it work?

Step 1 - Once you are a backer on this project, under the campaign window you’ll see a window in the upper area where it says how much you’ve pledged. On the right side of the screen you will find the button “Manage your pledge”.


 
Step 2
- Then you will see two buttons. The second one, “Change your pledge” will allow you to change your contribution.



Step 3 - Now you can increase your pledge in the "Pledge Amount" box by the total of the add-ons you want to add. Make sure to not change the tier of reward you want!


 
Step 4
- Once you’ve set the corresponding amount you can click continue.


 
Step 5
- Kickstarter will ask for confirmation to ensure the changes you’ve made are correct. If you are happy with them please press “Confirm”.


 
After the end of the Kickstarter campaign you will receive a survey that will ask you how would you like the add-on money assigned.

We're nearing our objective, remember to spread the word! 
Thank you so much for your support!

New Prologue Hard Mode
12 months ago – Mon, Oct 01, 2018 at 08:27:33 PM

Hello everyone!  

We just updated the Between the Stars demo to add a harder mode!
 

 
If you have played the prologue the harder mode will be unlocked. You'll find this mode really challenging. You’ll start the prologue with a poorly experienced captain and crew and with a ship with less equipment.
 

 
Your enemies will have better ships, better crew and they’ll be more! And prepare the medic bay because your crew will suffer more wounds.

35% of our Goal Reached and Visual Effects!
12 months ago – Sun, Sep 30, 2018 at 05:54:44 PM

Hello everyone! In this update we want to show you how making the special effects of Between the Stars has worked.


- The shield system on your ship creates a second invisible animated layer over the hull. This layer detects the impact zone of different projectiles and it becomes visible over the affected area.
 


- The thruster effect is formed by an emissive material with a particle system which generates the heat distortion wave. Each engine can vary the intensity and color of the emission to simulate damages.
 

 
- Fire is comprised of four particle systems layers. Two of them are in charge of the animation of two types of flame. One being the large ones and the other the small ones that are emitted from the origin of the fire. The two layers left are a spark system emitted from the flames and a distortion layer to simulate thermal distortion.
 

 
- The laser beam effect is obtained by using a line renderer and a particle emitter that simulates a thermal distortion.
 

 
- The explosion systems are generated by way of a particle system that reproduces the animation on a sprite sheet. These systems are categorized and instanced by the situation as it’s required.
