Release Details
The multiplayer alpha demonstration has been released! This release features two simple maps that will help test a wide variety of the game's features in networked play. Both maps are using the "War Mode" game mode. This mode is team oriented and requires completion of map-specific objectives. The first map is a small naval battle with two opposing teams. The second, is a medium size island with several bases for you to experiment with various vehicle types and objective completion.

This initial alpha will remain free while I work out the major bugs players encounter. I will release bug fix patches during this stage.

Better construction tools are in the works. In the current release, you can use the basic system by pressing the RELOAD key (defaulted to middle mouse) while any place-able object/material is selected.

Hosting a game will require additional steps to forward port 16114 until an NAT punchthrough server can be established. Additional Info [www.dyvoxstudios.com]

*I frequently make changes to core engine features, so I apologize in advance for the inevitable bugs you encounter. I will work quickly to repair any issues the we may find.

Description
Overview
The Dyvox Sandbox is the first iteration of an exciting new engine that will allow players to customize and create their own game experience, in real-time, with other players. As on ongoing project, players will be invited to participate in the community-directed development process that determines what gameplay features and content will be prioritized. Currently, the DyVox engine contains a wide variety of mechanics that players will enjoy tinkering with to create their own dynamic, destructible vehicles, to build their own structures and to test them all against their friends in combat!

Currently, the editor is in development. Once completed, players will have access to powerful tools to create custom games and challenging scenarios. The editor will be available offline as well as in-game for server admins.

Key Current Features
  • Multiplayer Support with full range of features!
  • Use building materials and functional components to create vehicles and structures
  • Real-time launch of custom creations in multiplayer, with seamless download by other players
  • Random terrain generator, using a fusion of heightmap and voxel data: creates resource-rich land masses to explore and fortify
  • Random foliage system which generates tens of thousands of unique flora
  • Inventory and crafting system: create and store materials and components
  • Use weapons to blast enemy vehicles and structures apart
  • Materials have physical properties, which means it matters how you build your vehicles and structures
  • Paints and decals allow expanded design and creativity
  • Character system supports clothing/armor

Planned Features:
  • AI System for vehicles and characters
  • Advanced crafting and research system
  • Map, logic and object editors accessible in-game (currently developer only)
  • Radiant Mission Manager

I'm glad too see the project is under-development again!
It would be nice to see a new version, or the site to be remade lol

well not entirely, I do have a nice clean new version in the works. Only problem is I'm a bit short on time since I'm a PhD student and my professor keeps making me science 6 days a week.

Actually, as of May I was able to start working on this again. It is being developed under a different, less lame-sounding name. The primary game mode will be more focused and some mechanics will be altered over time. It will also be apple and linux compatible in addition to windows.
