Addon of the Week: Spacebuild 3

This week I have decided to cover one of my personal favorite addons, Spacebuild (that SVN contains many seperate addons needed for SB3). Spacebuild is basically what it sounds like, the sandbox gamemode, but with added atmospheric conditions, gravity for planetary bodies, and a vacuum in space. Most people run Spacebuild with the Life Support and Resource Distribution addons.
Life Support and Resource Distribution enable a somewhat realistic simulation of underwater and space travel. The combination of these addons provides the ability to have some good fun in space, and there are many possible avenues of fun to have. For example, you can build a ship to explore the galaxy and combat other ships, you can go to distant worlds and terraform them into a habitable state, or you can spacewalk to invade a space station controlled by loads of Combine forces.

I hope you all give this a try, even if you don't download it for your own game, you should join a spacebuild server at some point in time jut to try it out. Hope you enjoyed this Addon of the Week, I will post another next Sunday.

  14. Whaaat, this looks wicked awesome. How is the navigation in space? Is it like noclip?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Navigation in space, as just a person, is basically floating in a straight line with VERY limited ability to change direction. It also disables noclip in space unless you are an admin, or if you are in the range of a ship with life support and artificial gravity.
