Long time, but finally, a new release- with better planetary shaders, some more systems, some more places to visit and, undoubtedly, some more bugs. Reporting them would be helpful...

patch available !

Seems I have no luck at the moment to upload a 485 MB package - therefore I have released this patch. Just exchange the vegastrike.exe (in the bin folder) with the new one and everything 8except direct flight) should work...

New release !

Unfortunately, the new bin somehow prevents emission patterns to work, so we have reverted to the old one until this issue is fixed. We have also added more trekinized communication files. The new release will be 0.5.3 and will be available tomorrow.

documentation 0.1

So finally I found the time to compile an extremely short first draft of a vega trek documentation. It will be completed in the next weeks. For additional infos have a look at the privateer manual that still is included in the main package.

patch 0.3.6 available

Somehow, it seems not to be possible (at least for me) to upload a large file to sf, therefore i have made a small patch with the most important changes. The game is still unstable and crashes sometimes when warping to a new system, but we are working on it. Photon torpedo ammunition can now be bought, and some minor changes have been made. I would welcome any feedback, preferably at our new forum at

I am working at the moment to produce a short documentation for new users. For the moment, have a look at the vegastrike homepage ( and there ->forums and then -> vegatrek. The main vegastrike doku might also be found somewhere there...
