    Crypt Space Commander(CSC) A Space Sandbox MMO

    CSC is an open-universe, sandbox-style space MMO with a player-owned economy. Command starships and earn digital items to buy, sell, or trade without limits both inside and outside of the game universe. Experience a free-market Play-to-Own Economy that provides true ownership & freedom.
    Starships
    In CSC you, our Commander, can own and operate your very own starships. Starships come in all shapes and sizes and are specialized in either mining, combat, trade, or exploration. Starships in CSC can be endlessly customized with modules. Modules can add or upgrade existing ship functionality from shields and weapons to FTL drives.
    Economy
    Almost everything in the CSC universe can be crafted from resources openly available in the universe. The smallest shield module up to a universe-wide jump gate network can all be made with the right materials. Create new technology and share it freely for the good of the federation or sell it for the right price.
    Crafting
    The crafting system is uncapped, allowing players to continually improve on the quality of their crafted items. Specialization is encouraged by the CSC crafting mechanic, rewarding players for focusing on specific items & allowing them to create truly unique and valuable starship weapons or other components.
    Exploration
    Rules are merely suggestions in some parts of space. Areas under GFI protection do exist, and are open to explore and mine to your heart’s content, but the best loot is out there in Fringes of Space. Beware, dangers of all kinds are in the fringe: creatures, pirates, rogue Commanders, and faction governments. Those brave enough to venture deep into Fringe Space however will find an abundance of rare resources, larger bounties, and more lucrative quests.
    The Current Game State
    CSC is a game in development while in Beta with core game features implemented. As a starship Commander you can command your ship, explore 40+ star systems, mine for resources that can be used in manufacturing/workshop, combat NPCs for loot and resources, and play along with other Commanders on our LIVE MMO server.

    An upcoming mode in Crowfall that allows 60 players to fight each others in a "Hunger Dome" style match. Todd describes it as a super condensed version of Crowfall on steroids and says it's really fun. It's a mix between a MMO, a MOBA and a Battle Royale (MMOBA).

    Characteristics:
    12 teams of 5 players teams start at the edge of the map ring that shrinks over time players can capture keeps, forts or castles players can die from the Hunger, monsters or players players can respawn if they own a structure team is eliminated when the last player dies players gain "ELO" players arrive on the map "naked", have to gear up up to 30 minutes per match restrictions on archetypes (not more than 2 tanks or supports per team) characters are clone version of players' characters, or available archetypes

    ATLAS: Ship Sail Design / Tattoo Guide

       (0 reviews)

    Description

    Hey folks, this is a quick guide to creating reasonably artistic custom designs for your ship sails as well as tattoos for your avatars.

     

    Tools you will need

    See this link for the ARKpnt Editor

    If you do not want to use your default paint editor or you do not already have a favorite graphics editor installed, click here to download the free GIMP graphics editor.

     

    Local "my paintings" file folder

    Your local saves will be in your steam folder and will follow a folder path similar to this:

    SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\ATLAS\ShooterGame\Saved\MyPaintings

     

    Prepare and download customizable area

    In Atlas, obtain a paintbrush (on avatar) and some black paint on a grill using berries and filled water containers (leather pouch or water jug).  One filled jug and a few berries will make a stack of 5 paint.

    For sails, equip the paintbrush and left click on the mast of a ship, the in-game paint window will activate.  For tattoos, right click and select the tattoo button on the lower middle of in-game paint window.

    20190123001413_1.jpg

    Use the thick black paint option to outline all the areas on the sail and/or avatar you would like to customize.

    When finished, click the save to disk button in the middle top of the paint window.  Once complete, you have successfully save the pnt file to your "my paintings" folder.

    Open up the ARKpnt editor and load the saved ARKpnt file from the above mentioned "my paintings" folder.

    Once loaded, click the "Save as Image" button in ARKpnt and save a png file to the same "my paintings" folder.

    Now, open the saved png file in your graphic editor (I use Gimp).

    Here's a few examples of what you'll initially pull out of an ARKpnt file:

    image.png

    Now do some fancy magic in your graphics editor in place and within the bounds of the above rough outlines:

    image.pngimage.png

     

    Now export your changes in png format to your "my paintings" folder.

    image.png

    Once exported, load the image file into ARKpnt by clicking on the "Load image" button in ARKpnt....it will then ask to convert the image using "Ark/Atlas" colors.  You'll end up with something like this:

    image.pngimage.png

     

    Next, click on the "Limit Colors" button in ARKpnt.  This will allow you to customize what the final product will look like using the colors available in-game as well as limiting how many colors will be needed (the editor tries to fit as many colors as possible).  So far, I've stuck with red/black tattoos and Red/White/Black for sails.  It just makes it easier for others' to download the file in-game and make a copy.  Here's a couple of my finished products:

    image.png

    image.png

     

    Once you are happy with the finished product in ARKpnt, click the "Save as ARKpnt file" button and go in-game.

    Get back to the paint editor window ingame, with the paintbrush left-click on the sail or right-click for tattoos.  Don't forget to select the tattoo button in the bottom middle of the paint editor window. (if you fail to do this, the upload will come out fuzzy.

    Now click on the upload button:

    image.png

    If you are missing dye, the editor will visually show you what you're missing.  If you have all the required dyes, click the same button again to upload and apply the dye.  The paintbrush will apply the paint automatically.

    There are some caveats that will cause network timeouts for some tattoo designs...I haven't figured out what exactly causes them, other than uploading less.
