GOLD is the in game currency and is used to speed up Research, Builds and Repairs. While you don’t need Gold to play Storm Force it does accelerate game play for you. The choice is yours. One Gold equals 30 minutes of speed up time and the cost for speed ups has been set at 10 cents per hour, equals 2 Gold.
The Gold Packs Chart below shows the packs available. So if you want 500 Gold then you select the GP4 pack in the right hand column etc.
***Please note that the combined discounts and bonus Gold amounts are specials ***
You can buy as many Gold Packs as you like.
Early Access means Alpha and Beta testing.
Alpha has now closed. Beta testing is still open.
What does Beta get you? Well you get to play the latest development update of Storm Force, test it out and have input into any changes that need to be made. With Beta you will be able to; save your research, build up your Base and construct ships and weapons without reset. All of this you get to keep, including your Base level gains so you can get a good head start. You also get 350 Gold to start you off
The purchase of Hulls will close at the end of Beta. This is your last chance to acquire them via outright purchase.
Hulls are divided into two types; RTS and Battle Print Hulls. Battle Print Hulls (Ships 1, 2, 3 and 4) will only be available to purchase till Public Release and then will only be able to be acquired by finding Battle Prints. RTS Ships are the games initial researchable ships. They are of the style as currently used in the Battle Arena and while players are welcome to keep them in their fleets they will be eventually superseded by higher quality and more modifiable hulls. Only two of this type are offered in the Supply Store, the BattleCruiser and the Battleship (Ship 5 and 6). Players purchasing either of these hulls get the Hull Print ONLY and must upgrade their Base buildings to a level that allows them to construction (Shipyard) and launch (Dock) vessels of their size. Please Note: While this is an option for Alpha and Beta players it would mean Public Players will have to construct the buildings necessary and level them up to the proper level to build and use them.
Battle Print Ships are based on real ships and normally require players to gain 7 separate Battle Prints to complete the set. These prints will sometimes be as part of a captured NME cargo, from a raid on another player’s base or several other options being considered.
Missions may provide single Battle Prints and Campaigns will on occasion yield the plans to a complete ship. But they will not be easily come by and not planned to be available as part of normal game play until mid 2019. Players purchasing these ships (Ships 1, 2, 3 and 4) will have them available from Beta onwards.
These ships have better statistics than RTS ships, have “Specials” slots, will be permanent and be part of the modifiable hulls system that allows changes to the design.
Note: (1) Battle Print Hulls will only be available for purchase till public release, after that they will not be available again until early 2019. (2) The purchase for these types of ships include the full set of battle Prints and one Pre Built hull. (3) A Dock of the level for a vessel of their size is required to be able to launch them.
The purchase of Weapons will close at the end of Beta. This is your last chance to acquire them via outright purchase
Weapons are divided into two types; RTS and Battle Print weapons. RTS Weapons are the games initial researchable weapons. They are of the style as currently used in the Battle Arena eventually will be superseded by higher quality and more modifiable weapons.
Battle Print Weapons are based on real life weapons and normally require players to gain or win 7 separate Battle Prints to complete the set. These prints will sometimes be as part of a captured NME cargo, from a raid on another player’s base or several other options being considered. Missions may provide single Battle Prints and Campaigns will on occasion yield the plans to a complete weapon. But they will not be easily come by and not planned to be available as part of normal game play until around mid 2019.
Players purchasing these weapons (WP 1, 2, 3 and 4) will have them available mid 2019. It is worth noting that these weapons have better statistics than RTS weapons, will be permanent assets and later be part of the modifiable weapons system that allows players to change certain parts of the design.
Please Note: Battle Print Weapons will only be available for purchase before public release, after that they will have to be found through Battle Print Hunting.
