New ores, gemstones, and other resources

2017-08-17 General
To help with the understanding of the crafting recipes, we modified the natural resources of the Aevian System.

On Merx, the "common" metal is now called Ferroxyde. Solid, but easily transformed in a forge, it will be useful to make the first tools and weapons. Besides, Ferroxide ore can be found on the surface, in the scattered boulders in the plains. If an object needs to resist to high temperature, it will be better to design it using some Calorium, that can be found below the surface, in the yellow sandstone. Finally, in the chalky rocks, you will find some Electrum, that is mostly used in electric items.

Different gemstones also illuminate Merx caves: Laserite (red) is used to create laser ammo and any other laser-involved objects. Crystaline (white) is a hard gemstone used to cut and crush, in the gauntlet recipe, for example, and Explodine (orange) will be used in different explosive recipes.

Istara also contains some useful metals: The Steeltanium is harder than the Ferroxyde, and will allow you to build more resistant objects whereas the Carboflex, that is light and flexible, is a great natural and recyclable alternative to plastics since the last drops of petroleum have been used a few centuries ago, in the Aevian System. Istara's gemstones are the Concentrite (yellow) that improves the properties of whatever it is mixed up with, the Reversine (purple) that reverses some effects, and the Silicine (blue), a semiconductor material that is used in most electronic circuits.

Of course, lots of other resources are used in the crafting system: Plants, like Mandragoras, Cotton or Fire flowers, Mushrooms, Fur, or even Goo, a slimy and sticky material created by spiders to protect their eggs...

Favorite of the week #19 : Circular Movement

Circles in Stellar Overload? After the shock caused by this kinda heresy, I must confess that I was very impressed by this room created by Tbx3.

The ingenuity of this system (which you can download here) is such that I was left speechless.

Continue to impress us, we ask for more!

Favorite of the week #17: Corridor trap... and other ways to trap a player

2017-08-01 General
Since electricity was added in Stellar Overload, you can build traps, secret codes, riddles, and even mini-games inside the game!



This simple circuit, published by R4INB0W_F34TH3R is a great example to see how sadistic you can be to the people that visit your dungeons: once you're in front of the detector, lasers will light up just long enough to kill you when you'll walk in front of them... :)

Here at Cubical Drift, we love to discover the new twisted traps you imagine, so please, feel free to share them on the steam workshop! You also have until august 30th to enter the "Escape Room" contest (right here). ;)

R4INB0W_F34TH3R's circuit can be downloaded here.

Where a developer of video games would have laid a mathematical function to generate a sphere automatically (CodingMarmot likes this), Onidosor has built one with his own hands (a quarter only!)

This small jewelry of construction of 126 blocks of diameter is nevertheless a very simple but also a very pure example of the poetry in Stellar.
In an aesthetic universe where master lines and right angles reign, to make a sphere is to attempt the impossible marriage between rectitude and suppleness, synthetic and organic, man and nature, the past and the future.

It is a very successful marriage, a very inspiring one.

Thanks to Onidosor.
Here is where you can get the artwork.

This is the second favorite for me, and I chose a thing really close to my heart: Disneyland Paris Sleeping Beauty Castle, made by the Voxelmancer team!

They did an amazing job! Disneyland Paris' castle is really like my home, and they were pretty good at getting all the proportions and colors!
