The compiled one (the pre-pre-pre-alpha v0.1) is coming out in a matter of weeks if not days. You can got to the CVS page and download the latest source and compile that on its own. Will be buggy though (like v0.1 will be. Early days :? ) Hope this helped :wink:

So, ive got a lot of spaceship graphics that i made while i was attempting this (and learning 3ds Max). I dont expect them to be up to the standard of this project, but maybe they could be useful for testing purposes, or maybe they can give other people some ideas? Wow, they look great! I'm with Th...

A whole lot of texts bundled into the game that can be read while playing. I'm sure there is some public-domain SF fiction somewhere on the internet, and we could write grand stories about our universe! LOL. Would be nice... and unique, I think. Maybe it could be on a remote server, and anyone (aft...

I see now what your getting at, though i dont think you would see such huge changes in efficency in the 'real' world. But from a gameplay point of view, this may be a good feature to include, theough the rebellion idea works just as well. If all the alien races on the other side of the galaxy are cl...

I'm in a hurry, I'll try to find it later, But what about Rebellions and Piracy? If they are to be implemented at all? Rebellions with gov't, and piracy could go whereever space monster/random events went.

But ehhm, what is the logic behind this? Races are really divided and undisciplined until faced with external threat? 1/4 as a starting value seems way too harsh to me, but maybe something less drastic would work. Maybe it should not depend on the number of races but on the threat those races prese...

I think it is childish to have those mini games. If you can chat to anytime you are not bored and if you have the time, because other players fight battles you can maybe check your empire and the statisitcs to keep up to date whats going on in the galaxy. That should be enough stuff to control and ...

I have to be honest I thought heroes in war craft 3 became too much of the focus of the game...
I think that was the point.

I like this idea, but it is for the future.
Be the first of two competing homeworlds to colonise a particular planet.
Like the planet Orion!!

That looks brilliant! Very natural. like the way actually LOOKS like a spiral galaxy. played lots of games that say you can define if its spiral or not, and everytime i couldnt see anything spiral like in it at all!!! PS this is WAY off topic, but looking at that map i'd hate to start on one of the ...

Three more:

Star General
Emperor Of the Rising Sun
Starships Unlimited

These were different takes on the 4X theme compared to the more mainstream 'Master of Orion' view.

ah... i understand now. thats the problem on focusing on niche markets, your catering for the minority!
