Developer Blog. Invasion History (Part Four)


It has been over two years since the start of the Alien Invasion into the human-inhabited worlds. A lot has happened in fringe sectors since then — the outskirts of the galaxy explored by mankind. The largest human organizations — the Empire, the Federation, and Jericho, almost lost their former influence and power. The dawn of private corporations has arrived. The largest and most significant of these was ‘Ellydium’, which manage to build its station ‘Ellydium Theta’ in Alien worlds and has developed its own line of ships, weapons and modules.
Today we want to tell all pilots about what is happening in the world of Star Conflict not only in the fringe sectors, but also in the metropolis. Unfortunately, the data from mankind’s internal worlds is highly contradictory, and it is extremely difficult to see the full picture of the situation.

Post-war world
The war with Aliens was a serious test for humankind. No state or organization could survive it without changes. Neither the old nor the newly formed factions could control their territory. Systems were disconnected. The world plunged into a post-war chaos.
Surviving Aliens scurry everywhere, the number of systems occupied by them is unknown, while pirates, terrorists or desperate robbers can be encountered even far away from the former hubs of civilization.
The past portal storm only aggravates the situation. Systems without connection with the ‘mainland’, either descended into humanitarian catastrophes, or adapted to the autonomy. The War with Aliens did not unite mankind. Separatist sentiments are strong even in the once loyal systems.
And though the portal storm faded in some systems, the nature of this phenomenon is not fully understood. Some researchers believe that it only changes its shape, becoming more chaotic. And soon all of us will be lucky if the warp gates work at least once a year. Who knows — maybe this is just the calm before the real storm?

What really stopped the Aliens?
It remains an unresolved question: why Aliens possessing such advanced technology and significant firepower did not see their conquest out and destroy humanity?
It is unlikely that the desperate frontier mercenary attacks on Destroyers and Defilers caused serious damage to the Alien fleet and forced them to change their mind. The hubs of the three metropolitan zones certainly saw much bigger battles. And let the propaganda shout that humanity has managed to survive and even win, but in reality we can not boast of great victories. Aliens have not gone away, and can break away from the chains again at any moment. But it seems that having explored the galaxy and occupied the systems that they wanted, Aliens simply lost interest in us. And even ‘Ellydium’ corporation’s bold invasion in their worlds went almost unpunished. What is it — truly Alien logic, or did the Invasion have other purpose than the destruction or capture of mankind?

Two Alien races
The key to solving this mystery may be the increasingly popular rumour that Aliens may not be a single race, but two rival civilizations. Biomorphs, whose named was wrongly used with all Aliens at the start of the Invasion, and Crystallids, the study of which has driven ‘Ellydium’s’ success.
Perhaps these two races have common roots and a long history of confrontation, that mankind has been drawn into without even knowing it. How else do we explain the compatibility of technologies of these two races? Throughout the war Biomorphs were often seen fighting on the side of Crystallids or under their control.
The source of the rumour that Biomorphs and Crystallids are not the same thing, apparently, are the few survivors of battles that raged in capital sectors. These stories most often mention battles in the heart of the Empire — supposedly this is where battles between Biomorphs and Crystallids were the most violent and big. But there is no direct evidence yet.

What happened to the capitals?
Just as there is no accurate information about what is going on in the capital sectors of the three superpowers. And in the known galaxy as a whole.
Individual frontier factions and branches of large corporations periodically try to establish a connection with the ‘mainland’, but so far such contacts rather are local — with other such systems or factions, that have no idea about what is happening outside of their sphere of direct influence.
Lone couriers and scouts trying to pave the safest route to capital sectors either never return at all, or become sources of rumours that are very hard to believe.
A scout claimed that deep in Bartle Sector he never met a single living soul. But automatic Jericho stations worked properly: his ship was repaired, refuelled, and he even managed to sell the goods found in space.
The Empire is the source of troubling rumours about the Solar system blockaded by Aliens. Whether it’s still guarded by Wardens or if the cradle of humanity is captured by Aliens — nobody knows. The fate of the Emperor is also unknown.
The least is known about what is happening in the Federation. Armada manages to react to Aliens’ spatial failures, but pirates, portal storm and separatist sentiments make the journey through the Federation territory very dangerous.
Currently, security services of factions and the largest corporations are planning to send the first expeditions to hub worlds. We will acquaint all pilots with the results of such expeditions. If, of course, expedition ships can make it back to fringe sectors.

Nice. Really like the direction where this is going.

It is becoming more interesting story.

I’m so eager to see updates in OS!! Go go SC team!!!

I not like this, because in future we can see 1000 ships for monocrystals… Realy Ellidium tree is only for ,build"?! That’s why I do not make this Tree and unlike this game…  ![:(](<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/003j.png “:(”)

Ah, refreshing ![:D](<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/006j.png “:D”)

About time to uncover mysteries,o boi!

Well duh. It was easy to see that the aliens were different from the start. The original invading forces were seen as just hunters and biomorphs, but the biomorphs were simply infected ships. Like a virus. The hunter was an actual crystalline ship with the respective survivability and damage output etc. The biomorphs seem to have also taken over other Jericho ships such as the Inquisitor, and the crystallids have grown a new ship, the “Scout”. Both have definite differences and roots. What this means for the future of the game is unknown, but being humans, I see us taking the side of one of the factions and fighting alongside them in some sort of war. Though this may also be irrelevant, as the crystallids are simply an advanced precursors security system that we woke up, and the biomorphs appear to be more similar to some sort of virus within the crystal matrix that can affect other ships.

“Currently, security services of factions and the largest corporations are planning to send the first expeditions to hub worlds”, I hope I get selected for this prestigious mission!

Very cool! Can’t wait to see the updated missions.


Can we have a huge raid like human so desperate that they use their home planet to ram into Leviathan? Leviathan will try to escape by sending out all remaining aliens to stall us and opened a portal back to their home world. Mission will have 4 wings consist of 48 pilots taking different side and have different roles, able to check progress on all other parts.

Wing 1: Guard the propulsion ring system which are under attack by tons of alien destroyers, cruisers, and battleships in several waves, and fight a boss.

Wing 2: Fight aliens near the Leviathan defense perimeter to delay invasion forces and fight an alien boss.

Wing 3: Destroy aliens around portals and worm holes opened inside our home planet to protect ground structure used for trajectory and fight an alien boss.

Wing 4: Eliminate alien forces and structures inside Leviathan to reduce Leviathan escape speed and fight an alien boss.

Raid can only be completed when all 4 side succeed, since this is a raid so it need to be corp only.

If you want an epic fight, think big. ![:005j:](<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/005j.png “:005j:”)

There will be a threat some time this year … be prepared!

Well if we all think about it… there is a reason why we got so many materials for destroyers. Think about it! Most probably we will see some sort of war against the aliens… a really big one…


Already knew the difference between those two alien “factions”, Biomorphs are something like a rogue alien/parasitic species that capture anything they can, and Crystallids are the original aliens… judging by the differences between their ships, architecture and weaponry. In Otherworld, you only find Crystallids (Hunters & Predators), although other sectors have both. Biomorphs are basically infected ships… if you have read the whole story about it, even the planets became ‘alive’ … would bet it is some sort of autonomous nano drones, connected somehow to do what Biomorphs need or want… or some kind of virus or parasite.

On the side of Biomorphs : If its a planet, it becomes alive and then is completely mined for iridium and other stuff, but if its a ship, the ship (and probably its crew) just becomes something else. I have seen Crusaders, Lance, Sword, and other models of ships tagged under the “Biomorph” type of aliens. The “voice” or sound when you attack them sounds aggressive, like if they had tentacles or some s**t in their throats ![o_O](<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/007.png “o_O”)

On the side of Crystallids : They seem to gather up their materials from mining (notice the huge stacks on alien worlds) and build their own ships, and the way they build them is more like, controlled, not like a Biomorph ship (which would be seen flying with a busted wing or hull to be precise). The architecture of their ships is also different: it has these, smooth ‘crystal’ plating… but the crystal growth looks very organized, obviously they have full control of the growth process. Crystallids also have a different “voice” or sound, there’s the lower tone ‘radio-like’ phrase in alien language or something, and the ‘signal’ or scream. 

Sorry I didn’t included the sounds of them. I hope you understood my la-me voice abstract descriptions :v

People may call this game “boring” but the story within it is just… addictive and curious XD


I have three questions:

  1. If there are two distinct alien races at war, then why do we see mixed wings of biomorphs and scouts together?

  2. Which race did the cybers ally themselves to?

  3. Why don’t we have the turbophaser available to us? It’s supposedly a jericho prototype.

[@TaperHarley](< base_url >/index.php?/profile/84482-taperharley/) Simple.

1… Think of it like the Human/Vulcan alliance. Two very similar species coming together against enemies and sharing technology and such.

2… Now think of the Cybers as the same way you would Klingons, who are friends with both Humans and Vulcans.

3… Get yourself a Thar’Ga and a Thar’Ga’Tok. ![;)](<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/002.png “;)”)
