Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is It Cursed?
Q: What Language/Engine is SS14 written in?
A: It’s written in C# using a hand made engine. C# is a good language and it’s pretty much perfect for the project. It’s quite fast but also very comfortable to write.
Q: Can I Help?
A: Sure you can. Hop on Discord or IRC and look at GitHub. We can use any help we can get!
Q: Will SS14 Support Multiple Codebases?
A: Absolutely. We have a decent split between “engine” and “content” and are designing it so that different servers should be just as comfortable to switch to as BYOND.
Q: Is There a Patreon? Can I donate?
A: No. We have no methods of donating to the project at this time. We don’t think it’d help to speed up development. While a system like bounties might be nice to encourage contribution, it’s also a hassle and a potential source of drama.
Q: Will SS14 Go On Steam?
A: We currently are not working on a Steam release of any kind. SS14 currently uses direct downloads. We may eventually provide a Steam version to go alongside direct downloads, but Steam will never be necessary to play the game.
