    Career mode focuses on progression and an overarching plot of starting your own search and rescue service from humble beginnings and building it up to cover the entire Stormworks: Build and Rescue world map. You will initially start off with limited components and build space and will have to complete various missions to unlock more components and money to buy larger building areas.

    • water pressure damage
    • ...and Sharks!

    Looks like this borrows very heavily from From The Depths, although this theme is pretty interesting.

    It's easy to get into, you can download from Steam Workshop not only missions [that can integrate into ones generated in the career mode too] and vehicles, but also various logic gates, scripts [all done be ingame parts and stuff] .

    Physics in the game are just incredible, not only wind and waves, air physics, but also fires, etc. BUT FLUIDS are also working with physics, so Fuel in pipes [or water] are under gravity , force, weight , flow etc.
    You can place and make your own working huds, metres, gearboxes, engines, etc.

    It has career , sandbox and fully customizable cutom mode. It can be played perfectly single or multiplayer.

    You can program and construct anything, weather stations, radars, guided missiles, cameras etc. :


    Im buildingnapalm bomb now similar to that:

    I bought this about a year ago or so, but I feel like it hasn't matured much for actual search and rescue. There's a lot of A to B with no depth to search or rescue operations, all of the real effort seems to go to the vehicle builder; I already played a ton of From The Depths so I'm not that amused by the developer direction thus far. :obviously:
    Last time I played with the mission creator to actually make some missions with more than A to B, it was some horrible visual design thing with no script capabilities (which explains why the missions are so basic), a very odd omission given they have Lua for vehicle components. I can't find any mention of the mission editor getting script support so I assume it hasn't changed.

    :negative:
    I can only hope the developers realize the editor needs real script support before I die of old age.

    What? Man we have working in game two cores processors now , i mean real working computers designed and ram memory all done by ingmae assets. Game is incredible flexy, you should try it today , its not only vehicles!. Im building gas chamber now, yesterday i builded working air locked room when trapped person dies from lack of air beiung pumped out outside. You must play really different game. We have working radars, sonars, and dozen of Wonder things now, sensors, logic gates, and just incredible potential of easy creating missions like sub rescue, fires, building fires, flooding, tsunamis, etc. you can even make a tornado that destroy buildings with simple microcontroller and some creativity. And game recieves weekly updates. Not to speak about educational value, people design games inside like tetris or flappy birds too , playable ingame.

    Hows the builder in this compared to FtD? I was very impressed with FtD keyboard building interface. And the physics? FtD was a pretty jank for aircraft last time I played but decent for ships and bad for ground vehicles.

    FTD is still not the most realistic simulation in all the land for sure, it's just that all the systems really matter and building your vehicles intelligently really makes a difference in gameplay. In Stormworks it probably doesn't matter even if you ride a donkey into the mission. Aircraft are still fairly odd in FTD thanks to the mixed complexity of simple jets and the actual jet engines, land based animals are probably just as bad as ever - I'm sad we never really got proper tracked vehicles (or good pathfinding for them).
    I don't really have a strong opinion of Stormworks physics, particularly for aerial, but I'm sure they're superior to FTD.

    As for the builder, I much prefer the FTD builder - even though it has a pretty huge learning curve and a hundred hotkeys, Stormworks is a little slow comparatively, but with a much cleaner UI. Stormworks vehicles are a fair bit more flexible for looks, and it's nice having properly functional dials and buttons, something FTD doesn't do well. I can't get behind purely aesthetic designs though so I find FTD infinitely more interesting to design for, since you always have to account for a ton of factors to have a combat worthy vessel.

    All that said, I'm probably not fit to make comparisons between the two - I just haven't played Stormworks for long enough, it just doesn't captivate me to build vehicles like FTD did. I'm hoping the search and rescue aspects get a lot more involved in the future, it does sound like the developers are at least thinking about them.
