How to tp? How do I leave sysetm? How to warp?
If you want to warp anywhere in the game, Press N to get the Navigation UI. Then warp where you want.
How do i move ?
WASD for propulsion, and the mouse to give the direction to your ship (if you are docked in the motherbase you need to undock first).
Anyone using controllers?
Controllers are still “experimental”… use at your own risk should be fine for fighting, but quite difficult for handling interfaces.
How to sell items?
You can not sell the items, but you can recycle them. You can also exchange them or give them to other players.
I’ve no idea what I’m supposed to be doing.
Leave the motherbase and go to fight to try to reach level 10 with your ship. You will find objects to equip, and at each level you will be able to advance your build. But GoS is a Rogue like, death is never far away. Once you reach the max level you will be able to try to get even better equipment or move on to leveling a new ship or try to unlock subsystems to have more choices when training a new ship. That’s a good start
Is there a mission log or anything?
When you undock of the motherbase, on the left, there is a “unlock objectives” panel. They change for each ship of each class.
how does this conquer zone thing works?
Each system is divided into sectors, and each sector contains a number of zones (red or green). You have to stay inside an zone to capture it. When all zones of a sector are captured, the gangs with the most SP wins the ownership of this sector.
Why is there the light green bar and the dark green in the zone conquest bar?
The dark green represents the conquest of all the other players in the same area. Light green represents your share of conquest.
What are sp? What are sector points?
SPs are earned when you are going to capture zones. They serve in local rankings (sector conquest) and in global ladders (Top Skill only on the site and Top Grind visible in the motherbase and on the site)
What is Greed Level?
From level 10 you can start the Greed. The greed levels will give you bonuses depending on the level you are reaching to win more credits / SP and conquering Zones faster. The greed levels are temporary and as soon as you exit a system you lose everything.
How to get Greed?
As for the leveling, you have to kill enemies and collect DNA. But the Greed only activates from the T4 systems.
How does the Greed bar work?
The bar is divided into 4 parts. When they are fully filled, you level up your Greed level. And the amount of DNA to move to the next level increases little by little. There are 31 levels in all. The bar also has the feature of emptying itself by 1.25% per second, so you can lose levels if you do not earn enough DNA to maintain it. And you also lose DNA by making you touch by enemy bullets, but never more than a quarter of bar. When a quarter is empty, you have a few seconds to win DNA before it drops to the previous quarter. Yes, mastering the Danger is important to climb to high level
Levelling and beyond
How do lvlup with Ship? What is DNA?
When you kill enemies, little green things will spread around. It’s DNA. DNA is the experience to gain levels.
What is Danger? How does Danger work?
Danger is a first bonus system. The higher it is at the moment of killing an enemy and the more bonus DNA will receive. To mount the danger you must have a maximum of bullets and enemies all around you. Each time you are hit, the Danger drops to 0.
How do we level crew ?
After level 10 of a ship, all DNA collected will go to the leveling of the crews. After level 10, it is also possible to remove the crew and change it like any object.
What happen if I die? The game is PermaDeath?
Yes the game is permadeath for your ship, his inventory items and his level acquier. But you will keep all the thing outside the ship, like credits, unlocked things and all the items in the motherbase and other ships docked at the hangar.
Pretty hard no (perma death)?
You can think it’s hard, but there is only 10 lvl in Gangs of Space, for a experienced player it’s just about 20~30min to play. And it’s also possible to buy directly a lvl10 ship if you got enough credits.
What is Astrolax?
The Astrolax is the support class of the game. There are skill to repair the structure and the shield of the other players. There are also the “link” skills that may make you think of the Team Fortress 2 Medic.
Where is the bar of the life? What is the blue and yellow bar?
The yellow bar is energy, it’s to use skills and active objects. The blue bar is the shield, it depends on the stats of your item shield. The red bar is the structure of the ship, if it falls to 0, the ship is destroyed. All bars are visible at the bottom right, and under your name (option)
