I've been experimenting with more cluster based map generation. To get the same number of planets we need a larger map because of the empty space. Not going to mad with the clusters but hopefully enough to add some more strategy and planning to the game..

Not sure he has a name.

I think you need to be given an incentive to finish the next version Jim - a bottle of wine from me if you do it by the end of the month.

That's where your wrong - he exists, and his name is David Lister a.k.a. Cloister the Stupid!

Don't anyone get excited about the new game that just appeared on the site.. it's a test for me to use while building v0.3 and it is miles from ready.

Some colour added to the mix... trying to avoid the green-black from this site. Not entirely sure it works.

version 0.3.... we can't release to the world a buggy, half playable game and call it v3! :-)

Really want to hear peoples ideas for technology... should it be like Civ where you have a full tree. should the components be better organised into more obvious groups like weapons,engines,shields,etc. any other options!?

I'm waiting for something a bit more open to appear on the market. ipad (sorry steve) is such a closed system and without flash you are missing out on thousands of games that already exist, ok it makes up for it with apps but might (only might) be better to just go with an device that can deal with the web better...

I don't think this is there yet - mainly down to the touch screen quality but..
