Welcome to Sunrise - A New Beginning.
Sunrise is a space gamemode which includes mining, missions, and hunting pirates for bounty.
This is not another sunrise remake, simply an extension to Outer Edge. Any previous progress you have made on our servers will still be there. This is not the same one as the one hosted by Panic, the one that sold the admin ship for money. Anything you did there is most likely lost forever. This is the one which was hosted by me; Jagger, and the one before that, with the team consisting of me, Slim Switch, and Reaper.
Features which have been added since the start of the serer (12/2/2010):
Improved networking by switching from networked variables to shared variables. (Created by The Maw)
–With the previous networking method, every time you requested how much money you had, or how much health your ship had, it would query the server. With the shared variables, it sends the information about an entity to the client, which is stored clientside so when the client asks “How much money do I have?” it displays the shared variable instead of asking the server EVERY FRAME.
–Drones currently are able to follow you, keep up with you in warp, and fire at your target. They are not yet available for purchase, but will be when they are completed. There will be a variety of drones, consisting of combat-oriented drones (Shooting, or warp scrambling, stuff that has to do with combat), and mining drones, which will increase your mining yield allowing you to spend less time mining.
Things that are planned for the near future:
–Multiple systems which are all on one server, so you won’t have to connect to another server to go to a different security system (Starting system will be high security, along with low and null security systems. The lower the security rating, the more deadly the pirates and the more rich the mineral deposits.)
–Needs this badly. 'nough said.
–Balduran created a large amount of new ship models for Sunrise, ranging from frigates, to cruisers, to battle-cruisers, to battleships, to freighters, to capital ships. All of which will be added to the server once their stats are balanced to be on the desired level
Please post any gameplay suggestions.
