Re: Sword of the Stars

Utilae = well, its a year later now, has anything changed?
I posted in the other 4x thread about the new expansion but agree with your original sentiment - SotS2 is a bust even now a year later. I do like SotS1 still.

Re: List of all space 4X games

Sword of the Stars 2 now has their first expansion - http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/sword-of-the-stars-ii-lords-of-winter-enhanced-edition I've now tried the game and its utterly awful. It's still riddled with obvious bugs and there's no sign of any actual fun gameplay anywhere in it. It doesn't ...

First impressions of the game

Hi Guys, long time no see. I decided to see how FO was doing. Only 0.4, but at least its still going and appears to be playable. Good work! Anyway, this is a very long list of "issues". Some suggestions, some objective bugs, some subjective bugs. Basically its just me describing stuff that happens d...

Re: v0.3 review

Why are you reviewing an unfinished game?? :roll: :?: :? Because they're going to have to finish it eventually..... :roll: When? In about 20 years?? :shock: We could probably extrapolate - The project began in mid 2003, it's now 4.5 years later and we're at version 0.3 (and have been for the last 2...

Re: List of all space 4X games

Sins of a Solar Empire has now been released, so you can move it to 2008. The website is now: http://www.sinsofasolarempire.com/ Also, for the abandoned Stars! Supernova Genesis, you may want to add a link to the way-back-machine archive: http://web.archive.org/web/20021017110600/crisium.com/sn/inde...

FO Release Candidates

Maybe I'm missing something here, but aren't release candidates (RC's) only supposed to be for bug-fixing purposes? Wikipedia seems to agree with me ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Release_candidate#Release_candidate ) FO seems to be using them in place of upping the decimal, i.e. 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 etc. ...

Good idea. You could then rotate them by a random degree to give the impression of even more variety.

Re: Collection of Theory Icons

I quite like most of these icons, well done Silent One. But I'm not keen on the artificial blackhole one. It doesn't really look like anything. I can pull it apart into it's three component pieces (accretion disc, jets, icon), but I'm not keen on how it's been put together. Couldn't you go for more ...

Re: Aquisition of Language and Language delays.

Well, - Sword of the Stars has it so that you have to research translation for each individual race (there are 5 with the expansion). The newest patch will give the player a salvage-tech-research bonus if they've researched the language for the race they salvaged the tech from. - GalCiv - has the un...

Oh yes, the alpha-centauri expansion. So in the entire genre, it seems there are two. :?

Genesis Rising / Space Force

Anyone tried either of these two games?
I know they're not strictly 4x, but Genesis Rising is a semi-homeworld clone I believe, and Space force I think is a FreeLancer/Elite clone (not yet out in Europe).

Re: Looking for good graphics people

Moo3 stuffed up. GalCiv, whats up with the space combat, you can create a ship in full detail, part by part, but combat is a non interactive show. Sword of the Stars lacks the core space 4x features (diplomacy, economy, spying) and has a 3d map which is impossibly bad. Space Empires V seems like th...

Re: Master of Orion (1) source code?

A significant chunk of the problem would be finding who owns the code in the first place. Chances are they don't know they own it and have probably lost it (it is well over a decade now).
And if they haven't yet, there's only about 80+ years until it leaves copyright. :?
