Hey guys, here’s an update for you in regards to SS13 Standalone.
After a period of putting this project on hold, We’ve made the decision to release the source code, meaning the standalone is now a fully open-sourced project. Here’s a few things you should know:
Unfortunately, we were unable to dedicate enough time to work on this project full time.
During development, many of our lives were changed via real world factors. Starting families, babies, jobs etc. While progress was impressively fast at first, all of these things ultimately contributed to us running into difficulties with continuing the project.
We made a promise to open source the project if we ever decided to stop development. While this was a heated internal debate, the decision was ultimately to call it and go ahead.
Releasing what we have as an open sourced project will hopefully inspire the SS13 Community, and give them a chance to work on the project in our stead. We’ve already seen a lot of interest and discussion among the larger community, spanning every branch of the game. We hope that this will lead to some form of collaboration.
If you want to join the discussion, please go to #spacebus on irc.rizon.net
IS THIS PROJECT DEAD?
The site was set up to act as a dedicated hub for both BYOND SS13 and any other version that may see the light of day. The SS13 remake as we know it is no longer in development. This does not mean it will never happen, just not in this form. This site will continue to act as a dedicated space for all things Space Station 13.
While this may disappoint some of you, it was incredibly educational for those of us on the team. We had a very bare bones form of the game running, and with some additional work, time and content, we believe it is possible for an iteration of SS13 to exist separately from BYOND. This is hopefully where the community comes in..
We want to thank every single one of you for sticking with us for all this time.
