We are in need of people to work on these things! Feel free to fork the Naev source code and try your hand at implementing them!

Next Release (0.6.0)


  • Control improvements
    • WASD scheme by default, perhaps an option to set a default WASD or arrow key layout
    • Auto-assignment of active outfits to weapon groups, or a parallel system (e.g. function keys)
  • Landing window improvements
    • Store: Filtering (tabs), possibly free-form, incremental text search
    • Equipment: Enhanced filtering, some way to quickly differentiate outfits that share icons
      • Note: Not entirely done, but as done as it's going to be for now. The outfit image arrays need a graphical overhaul.
    • Shipyard: Preview new ships with their default core outfits, or showcase the ship stats directly
      • The former is only an apples-to-apples comparison if all ships come with identical core outfits


  • Missile system revamp
    • Needs further discussion, some ideas include giving torpedoes no or zero forward thrust, and salvo-based regenerating ammo
  • Playtest missions and adjust difficulty based on player feedback
  • Support for high-DPI monitors
  • Slot size indicators
