Would it be possible to make a multiplayer mod currently? Just untill SPAZ gets it or if they make a SPAZ 2.

Sadly the engine has zero MP functionality to speak of :( We're changing engines for SPAZ 2.

Well that may be good and bad news.

Good:
  • Tailored to the way you want.
  • Access to the core to make adjustments.
  • No royalty fees.
  • No pleading for fixes, you can fix crap yourself.
  • Can be a highly optimized and powerful engine if they are willing to dedicate a programmer or two to nothing but, the engine.

Bad:
  • Hard to make a proper engine.
  • You will screw up on your own engine a TON till it gets acceptable.
  • Due to the above creating an engine worth beta takes a long time.

We are definitively NOT making an engine. We are firm delivers that making a song should not require the you to build a guitar ;) We're looking at some replacement tech, but the reality is we have not yet even begun SPAZ 2. Everything is up in the air at this point, including the tech we may use.

MP would be seriously cool. Trick is to not bog down the game.

If you want to know about the nightmare of making an engine, especially for people who have day jobs, talk to the people over at Unknown Worlds and the long, long, long (did I mention long?) overdue Natural Selection 2.

Yeah. Saw one of the devs at Gamescom. Said that it took a long time to get there, but now it's finally getting somewhere.

Probably Steam related. Seriously, there is no multiplayer.
