What is the largest galaxy size? I'm already impressed by that being 2000 and I would love it if that was just 'normal'.

And I hope private sector shipping is still visible and present!


We don't know details, but a year ago Erik said that "suffice to say there is still a private economy."

Thread here.

So yes, hopefully that means there's still the ant farm of countless private ships going about their business.

Just saw this on Das channel. I hurt my back due to the unplanned massive erection I had while watching.

My immediate thoughts about the galaxy view, it doesn't really look very "galaxy" if you know what I mean. I loved the way Distant Worlds 1 showed the galaxy, it was very cartographic, would love to have the ability to add custom galaxy images for the backgrounds to games, also where are the gridlines? how will I find that darn abandoned ship floating around some backwater system if I don't get a "Sector B11" notif?


The look of the galaxy map is not final, FWIW.

I asked this in another thread and Erik said that:

quote:


DW2 is only planned as a Windows release, unfortunately. The engine does not have the ability to run natively on Linux. I don't know how well it will run in emulation on Linux or Mac, but we'll find out before release and testers who have both Windows and Linux/Mac systems to give that a try during beta would be appreciated.


My account isn't old enough yet to add links; pg 15 of the 2019 xmas sneak peak.

DWU is the best, so high expectations are lurking! But that's a hell of a tease and Christmas present.

Where do we sign up for the beta?

Edit: No character tab... Mmh... slightly worried. By the way, I'd bet this "radar" icon is influence, which is displayed over non-colonized systems as a strength value.
Edit2: Yeah, no, scratch that, may just be detection strength. But then why a tab of its own?
Edit3: Expansion planner? I give up.

Thank you Erik for sneak peek. I loved helping play test Distant Worlds -- I forget which 'chapter.' Love to help here-- as well. In any case: Thank you, Happy New Year. Be safe, have fun, work hard, enjoy your accomplishments! -e

One thing I like added in Distant Worlds 2 is a naming system.

I always manually name my troops. So I like naming troops "Imperial Guard" or "Stormtroopers" etc. Possible a simple system where we can set a name and all trained troops will automatically rename themselves to 1st Imperial guard, 2nd Imperial Guard.

Another thing is the ship initials like USS, INS, IJN. Just something we can add so that all automatically named ships will have those initials in front.

Hi everyone,

As you probably heard in our December 3rd Stream, we're planning a big reveal on Distant Worlds 2 in January. As a result, this is definitely _not_ a big reveal, but I didn't want to leave the hard-core fans checking our forum with nothing new to see before then.

After posting a request for the most wanted sneak peek, the winning choice was for a brief view of what it looks like in Distant Worlds 2 to zoom from the planetary scale out to the galaxy. I've put this into an animated GIF for easy viewing. If you want to see the full size/quality, there's also a brief video version of that GIF at the link below.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Be well, stay safe and let's hope for a wonderful 2021.

Just tried your link and get something called Wetransfer each time. What the heck (politely)...
