I just wanted to write something very quickly about Project 6014. The demo has been released by the hard-working Project 6014 team. I have seen other mods where the ship stats are modified to create new strategies and I think this is the first one I’ve seen with an entirely different campaign and additional artwork.
One of the first things I noticed is the starmap is completely different. This would be a good time to remind everyone that the starmap is searchable! When in the map screen, press / and type the name of a star system; press tab to switch between different star systems that start with the same letters. It’s a great time saver.
Keep in mind this is the demo, the full version is in the works. I am definitely supporting this. This can inspire more people to make more UQM mods which is a great way of extending Star Control II’s legacy.
So check it out. There’s plenty of new artwork to see and so much to talk about. I just started playing the game and it’s a must for anyone who loves Star Control and wants to play something new that’s based on it directly.
Thanks to the Project 6014 team (Cedric, Erjh00, Benjamin,Jakko, Dczanik, Eli, MMcGillSmith and Abovetheruins) for working on this and I am excited to see more in the future.
