Please dont act like people in that stupid reddit thread, gatekeeping SS13 from the "normies". Bringing the game to a wider audience is a good thing.

So im not a game dev. How are they going to do open source on Steam? Is the SS14 page just going to be an advertisement? Where would the server list be?

Ss13 is open to all so long as they are chill.
Someone can be new and still be a very pleasant person.
Of course 9 times out of ten they have no clue what they are doing but to be fair neither do we.

I find it incredibly gay that they renamed it to ss14. Is there a reason or are they just stupid

ive heard this on reddit so let me ctrl+v
Spoiler:
In Mandarin-speaking regions in China, 14 and 74 are considered more unlucky than the individual 4, since 14 (十四, pinyin: shí sì) sounds like "is dead" (是死, pinyin: shì sǐ) (...)

Source: Wikipedia

TL:DR; 14 sounds like "is dead" or "must die" in chinese mandarin and other languages that use the mandarin number system (japanese and korean)

14 still fits the theme as it's synonymous (in chinese superstition) with death and dying.

It doesn’t fucking matter why, SS13 is the title. Changing it is retarded.

(also its the title bc that’s considered unlucky in western culture, or at least in the USA. Changing it to match another culture makes no sense, the name is already established so who the fuck cares if 13 doesn’t mean anything to people from China)

I don't get it

Is it the same game, simply put on steam to attract players?

Is it the unity version?

WHAT CODEBASE IS IT USING

I'm not really that interested in a sequel, the series peaked with Space Station 7 and it's only been going downhill from there

Engine that isn't braindead, pixel movement
Still pretty much WIP though so presently I'm still going to be playing SS13, but it's surprisingly playable, you can get into a server right now

i'm all for getting away from byond but i'm guessing it'll take a long time before the amount of content rivals what we have now. will it be free on steam if it's already open source and playable?

will definitely take some time yes, but because it takes the same open source approach that SS13 does it will get there eventually as long as even one person wants to contribute. it's also surprisingly far along already as is imo

yes, it will be free, iirc they've stated that the steam release is just so the client can easily autoupdate without them having to write their own updater/force people to manually download launcher updates
