Re: List of all space 4X games

There is a new TBS game: Lost Empire. Not widely known so far, released in June 2007. Added to the list. There is no demo yet, but developers said they were making one.

Re: List of all space 4X games

I have just made changes to the list. We got some new games. I'm thinking also about adding a column in the list stating type of a game (RTS or TBS)? Any comments, suggestions?

Problem - installation 0.3.1

Win XP Home.
I installed RC1, game started, then quit.
I installed over it next version, and now even uninstal and instal again does not help. I get message program configuration is wrong.
Any experience with this?

civ3 uses flc, or so-called flic files, which are compressed animation files. DirectX allows also for animation using sprites, or one can use simple bitmaps and flip them on screen, in 2D. These are quite good options.

Browsing the net can bring really nice findings. Check this game, which is now freeware. initially DOS, but now windows too. Anacreon, I haven't seen it in this thread before:

How about a galactic core? Our own Milky Way has large black hole in the center - radiation and matter accumulation is tremendous there. That would be region where starship navigation would be almost or completely impossible.
