Universal Combat CE

Universal Combat which was first released in 2004, was the spiritual successor to the infamous Battlecruiser series of games which made its debut in 1996. Then heralded as the most advanced capital ship space combat game, Battlecruiser 3000AD, the first title in the series, set the resulting standard for high-end capital ship combat games. You not only had control over a massive armed carrier in a vast universe with space and planetary bodies, you also had complete control over the carrier's systems (weapons, navigation etc), support crafts (fighters, shuttles, vehicles) as well as an entire crew that moved around the ship doing various things (e.g. engaging in combat with intruders).When Universal Combat arrived, aside from new graphics technologies, it brought along with it a host of new features which were not present in the previous Battlecruiser titles. Such features included advanced fps controls which allowed you to not only deploy your carrier crew to planets, control them in combat etc, but it also allowed you to fight alongside themIn 2007, was released as the final title in the Battlecruiser and Universal Combat IPs. In 2009, following the 2008 release of (we also this game in 2014 and released as a Steam exclusive) which had improved space and planetary engines, we again refreshed the UCCE game and released it as .This ultimate space capital ship combat compendium spans over two decades and represents the evolution of hard core space combat sims. It contains all Commander scenarios from every game in the Battlecruiser and Universal Combat series:Here is a sampling of the game features, out of hundreds of things that you can do in the game; most of which you can must make up as you go along. And this list doesn't contain any mention of the advanced game engine technologies, especially one of the most advanced AI systems you've ever encountered in a game.Combined, the game manual and tutorial are over 200 pages. The keyboard commands map almost every single key on your keyboard. Yeah. Better go check your ink cartridges. Oh and paper, you will need lots of paper.There is also a web based which details everything you need to know about the world of these games. That appendix is rather old now, but we're looking to do an updated version on the new upcoming website for the game. The appendix on the new site will be similar to the one we currently have on the website.This Steam release contains Instant Action and Advanced Campaign Mode scenarios featuring the primary Commander career. It also has the freeform roam scenarios in which you can go anywhere in the game galaxy and do anything (within the limits of the game) without any orders. You simply make your own adventure.Though we removed all the secondary scenarios (such as those that feature infantry and fighter combat missions) in order to focus on the primary concept of the original Battlecruiser game which was purely about capital ship combat, this Steam version also contains never before released variants of the Instant Action and Advanced Campaign Mode scenarios scripted to use different capital ships. For example, the original A World Apart campaign scenario played as a Commander, featured a Battlecruiser MK3 carrier in part 1 and a Nightstar carrier in part 2. Both of these are included, in addition to variants using the newer Engstrom class carrier; the same ship featured in the Line Of Defense MMO game currently out on Steam Early Access.You can view the .The exclusion of the infantry and fighter based scenarios doesn't mean that you cannot play in those roles. You can still play in an infantry role and also fly fighters; but you will do so as the Commander and not as the limited marine or pilot careers. So this just means that there are no scenarios designed exclusively for those marine and pilot careers present in the previous games. The reason for this is that, aside from this being a game, we wanted to draw your attention to the capital ship Commander career which is the focus of the upcoming game and which won't feature those careers either. If you do want those careers, you still have the option of purchasing the 2009 release of the original Universal Combat CE game. That game is not available on Steam and won't be, but you can check our for links to where you can buy it if you want.There is no multiplayer in this version of the game.
