XPilot NG

XPilot NG

XPilot NG is a multi-player tactical manoeuvring game. Each player controls their own fighter equipped with a variety of weapons and power-ups. Players compete as teams or as individuals; the object of the game is to score points by blasting the opposition, stealing their treasure or by racing round a circuit.

It is an extended version of XPilot, a true Internet classic. This game is extremely addictive.

Features include:

  • True client/server architecture
  • Meta server with up to date information about servers hosting games around the world
  • A web of world-wide rating servers; compare your skills with pilots from all around the world, and climb the ladder of the world-wide rating list
  • 'Real physics'; particles of explosions and sparks from your engines all affect you if you're hit by them. This makes it possible to kill someone by blowing them into a wall with engine thrust or shock waves from explosions
  • Java map editor for the polygon map format, outputs the map in XML format
  • Python map conversion script for converting old style maps to new style maps
  • Game objective and gameplay adjustable through a number of options, specified on the commandline, in special option files, or in the map files. Examples of modes of the game:
    • Classical dogfight; equipped with only your gun, you have to rely on your maneuvering and tactical skills
    • Team; fight together, steal other teams's treasures (involves flying around with a ball in a string, much like in Thrust) and blow up their targets (which are, no doubt, heavily guarded)
    • All out nuclear war; chose carefully between more than twenty weapon and defense systems to stay alive and annihilate your enemies
    • Race; make it through the deadly course before your opponents
  • Adjustable gravity; adjustable by putting special attractors or deflectors in the world, or by adjusting the global gravity in various ways
  • Cannons and personalized and vengeful robot fighters give you a hard time
  • Watch your energy, and remember to 'dock' with a fuel station to refuel before it's too late
  • Defend your home base, or terrorize and steal someone else's
  • Equip your ship with the 15+ defense and weapon systems: afterburners, cloaking devices, sensors, transporters, extra cannons, mines and bombs, rockets (smarts, torpedos and nuclear), ECM, laser, extra tanks, autopilot etc
  • Full integration of teamcup code, run your own xpilot cup
