RCG 1.2: gameplay edition

An Expansion of my Random Cosmos Generator with Gameplay Aspects created for my ICT BTEC work:

RCG1.2 is a simplistic (and still in development) space trading/exploration game that doubles as a map tool

-Travel the Spelljammer inspired cosmos as a trading vessel, or disable gameplay features to explore the galaxy in spectator mode.

-Choose from 4 unique ships

-trade in 7 unique types of rare artefacts

-mouse over planets, stars and other bodies to learn their name and a brief, randomly generated description of them.

-Read the Instructions, i intend to add in an ingame tutorial but for now the instructions are your only guide.

Updates occasionally.

D&D/Spelljammer is the property of Wizards of the Coast, this is not an official product but merely a homage, check out the official release at least in the form of the free 3.5e and 5e SRDs and check out the Spelljammer Fan-site. Similarly the term “Star Step” is a homage to the procedure of the same name and similar function featured on the Starwalker Blog which is a really awesome sci-fi novella series written from the point of view of the ship Starwalker, or rather its AI of the same name, you should totally check it out and stay away from spoilers.

Spelljammer Cosmos Generator 1.1

day 1 update to my procedural map generator based around the spelljammer D&D setting in which solar systems are contained within vast crystal spheres and wizards travel between them on medieval fantasy spaceships.

CONTENT WARNING: hilarious, random usage of naughty words possible and likely.

Acessable Here (embed isn’t working for me)

Controls:

-on the control screen things are pretty self explanitory. if you use the same seed with the same x y and systems values then it will generate the same systems. you don’t have to use a seed if you don’t want to visit a map more than once.

-WASD/arrow keys moves the camera, the cursor follows the mouse. hover over things to discover their procedurally generated name, type and flavor text. if you have trouble hovering over something try scrolling in with your mouse wheel (sorry laptop peeps).

if i get round to it i might do a few more revisions of this, maybe even exporting stuff.
