Galactic War is getting made

An update

Good news: brutus5000 and I have started working on Galactic War. Don't get too excited, this won't be finished in a month.

The project will be divided in two parts/repositories:

  • gw-backend
  • gw-frontend

These will communicate via web sockets and API calls. As for now, we sort of know the technologies we are going to use, but aren't 100% sure yet. I'll update this topic accordingly.


Technologies

  • Spring Boot
  • Camunda BPM
  • Elide
  • JPA
  • Websockets (STOMP)
  • Gulp
  • Pug
  • SASS
  • CoffeeScript


The current team

Currently, there is two of us:

  • brutus5000: works on gw-backend
  • lextoc: works on gw-frontend

If you feel like you can help us out, you're always welcome to contact us via the forum, the in-game client, or Slack (#galactic-war).
I'm watching you!

What type of help do you need? Programming, UI design, game crafting?

Not 100% sure, but a graphics artist is always most welcome.

If someone feels like helping me out: I need a short video (~20 seconds) that will be used as background on the GW website. In this youtube video there are a couple of good shots that could serve as inspiration (like where the Cybran ships come out of the water): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jpZJQIDuAs

Keep in mind the video should not be too "busy".

The video should be delivered in two versions if possible: .webm and .mp4. I can convert it to these myself, just mentioning it.

I'm probably the best at the game crafting stuff, things similar to the map post I made in this very forum. I have some programming knowledge but probably not as much as either of you in the areas you're working in.

I can also do the video as well, where do you want it placed?

I'm working on the faction selection page at the moment. Brutus is working on the backend with a "test client": https://cl.ly/320I1S0E393j

If you want to help out with simple stuff you can always reach out to us on Slack.

So this is why you want to focus on 2v2 and 3v3 for BAW team games :lol:
Maps are important for FAF!
