I’d like to play this game again, but not sure i can squiz my taste in it.

I played one of the first version years ago, when it was barely just a battle simulator, and then played again several times for big updates but not too much, waiting for "full release" but i don’t think i’ll be alive when it happens so i should play today i guess. I think i almost don’t know anymore the game as it is in its current version, just the main flow and general gameplay, as i still have dozens of hours over the years.

What options, paths, and probably mods should i use and follow to have some fun ?

- I like having a small fleet, 1 to 5 ships very max, 2 or 3 would be neat
- I love exploration with meaning (finding usefull stuff, discovering weird places...)
- I like battles with small groups but tactical choices, not just lot of peons vs lot of peons
- I like destroying some things easily as i grow not in numbers but in power and knowledge, not always be challenged every step i go
- but i like also having some challenge from time to time when it’s justified, not just random pirate 10x my power because RNG hello
- i don’t like being an octopus with many buttons to click in short times and fast clicking or i’m dead
- i like usually turn based tactical stuff, but that’s not this game, so...
- i hate being dead because i didn’t do THAT or THIS in the right order at the right time

Do i make sense ?

Thanks for reading

Is there a way to zoom closer, and further, both in campaign and combat mode ?
Maybe there is nothing special to soo, but it’d to anyway...

General Discussion / (0.95a) Missing keybinding ?
« on: March 26, 2021, 01:19:36 PM »

I don’t have a qwerty keyboard, and i rebind all keys in almost all games.

Here, i can rebind a lot of keys, but some of them seem to be missing or conflicting ?

Example, main screen where you move from planets to planets etc, Cargo is i, but i is also the key to slow down the fleet. So, to slow down, i must press and hold the i the i key (that’s opening the cargo), and manually close the cargo with the mouse, so when i’m back to game main screen, my fleet slows down.

Did i miss something ?



I play since 2011 but i never went really far. So for you all experts, a question :

I was wondering, do you have to grow to do something "interesting" in the game, or can you stay small ?

How small ?

I guess you CAN play lonewolf, one single ship, but what you actually do with it ? Between "A few delivery errands" and "Discover the secret of 42" ?

And then, what skills would you pick for your journey ?

I asked the same question back in 2014.

I was wondering, how do you level your character ?
Where do you spend your first points ?
How it looks like at level 10, 20, 50 ?
Please share your knowledges, ideas and experiments !

Bug Reports & Support / Other than qwerty keyboards
« on: April 24, 2017, 08:53:48 AM »

I run Linux, and i have a TypeMatrix bépo french keyboard (kind of dvorak).
In other games, i simply switch layout to US or FR while i play, and it's done in 2 seconds without trouble.

However, Starsector still reads my keyboard as a bépo keyboard.

Why ?

Is there anythink i can do, beside change all the keys manually ?

Thanks for reading

If you are curious, bépo is like this :
