Guild Software, creators of the multi-platform Space MMORPG Vendetta Online. Also having created a new cross-platform benchmark product. All using the assets and engine of their long-running game. So VendettaMark 2018 allows a single CPU and GPU test to be run. So players can compare between Linux, Mac and Windows. And even Android and soon iOS.

Continuing on with some interesting gaming news. Unigine has #officiallylaunched their Superposition #gamingbenchmark #tool. Since the release was previously delayed. Which does include a build for Linux and Windows. While also compatibility with the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift in VR mode.

Since Unigine’s Superposition benchmark is using the Unigine 2 game engine. Hence getting a dicey start in the news earlier this year when it was pulled from Valve’s Steam Greenlight. Since the tool is technically a not gaming software.

The Unigine’s benchmark utilities have been popular around a decade now. Hence starting with Sanctuary, then Tropics, Heaven and Valley. So we still use Unigine Valley #benchmarking #tool to measure #GPUperformance. While Unigine will be releasing an entirely new benchmark based on their Unigine 2 Engine, Superposition. Build on their Unigine 2 Engine, so this will support DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.5+ and both the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

Superposition Benchmark is a new GPU stress-testing tool from #UNIGINE looking for votes on Greenlight. A tool from the #developers of the very popular and highly acclaimed Heaven and Valley Benchmarks. This powerful benchmark can be effectively used to determine the stability of PC hardware under extremely stressful conditions, as well as check the cooling system’s potential under maximum heat output. It also offers highly immersive VR mode with support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive HMDs. Not that we have seen Linux support for either, but good to know it’s there.

Stellaris set to be Paradox’s most moddable game yet on Linux, Mac and Windows PC

Paradox Interactive and #Paradox Development Studio today released a new developer video alongside an equally new 3D model exporter tool that will allow users to create full conversion mods for games such as upcoming grand #strategy titles Stellaris and Hearts of Iron IV for #Linux, Mac and Windows PC. The tool, named Clausewitz Maya Exporter, makes it easier for community creators to introduce their own models and units into the latest Clausewitz engine games, with full support for upcoming titles and partial support for Europa Universalis IV and Crusader Kings II.

“Modding has always been a core part of our games. Many fans of ours became exposed to our games through mods and working with these users and creators has always been important to us” says Henrik Fåhraeus, Game Director for Stellaris. “The community has been asking for more total conversion mods and we want to make it easy as possible for our talented fans to make them”

“Any gameplay exposed to the player in Stellaris should be moddable,” says Stellaris Game Designer, Joakim Andreasson, “So our modders can change pretty much every value, most of the game rules, and the content they see within the game”

Watch the video here:

“We’re excited to see what the community can bring to our games,” said Fåhraeus. “We’ve seen some great ideas on our forum and we’re looking forward to seeing what kind of ships, aliens and other things the community will add to the game.”

The new tool, initially scheduled to release alongside Stellaris on May 9th, is made available today for modders everywhere. To download the free tool log in with your Paradox Account via this link, or check the “Downloads” tab on your account page
