Protogenesis is on the todo list, near the bottom, with all the additional new special abilities. There are a few more basic gameplay issues that need be be addressed before more potential points ov failure are introduced into the source.

Are they in Png format? I know Bmp's seldom work, so you have to set them as Url and not an Img...

Has everyone stopped playing the current game? I stopped taking turns so that others could catch up, but no one seems to have taken a turn in days. Heck, I even adandoned a number of systems so that people could claim them (and their intact starports).

Do you want me to just stay up all night generating resources so I can crush all of you? Is that what you are telling me?

Oh, how sportsmanlike! I have been driving around to all your charity systems, claiming them, un-installing their low-tech prototypes, scrapping the starport, before abandoning the system so no one can trace the path back to my homeworlds. If only there were a scrap prototype option, I'd have more then 500 million yen.

I divide my corebound time between playing the game, coding new features, and testing new features. I have been sick the last few ov days, so I have not done much ov anything.

Oh, there you go, spoiling my best effort at being a benign overlord. Clearly I began the strip mining of systems to early. But people were starting to attack me so I figured that they were ready to play hardball. Then I discovered that they were nothing but the mere shadows of opponents, phantoms to be banished by the flickering light of a candle.

Fine. I'll just end the game.

Noooooooo! Don't end the game yet!

I still play, but school just started so I'm pretty busy and I really only do revenge attacks on somebody that has taken a system from me. I still long on every day, but I don't usually do much.

Dear Neighbors,

Alas the time for diplomacy has ended. I have taken it upon myself to bring order to the fractuous G029 sector. Currently violent ion storms prevent my loyal retainer and fleet commander the dreaded Red Knight from rasing systems. But fear not, when the storms have abaited his mission will continue. None of you will have to suffer long.

Cordially,

Baron Mobius

Dude... not cool. I one system, no ships, and no way to make them. Therefore, I, grudgingly, submit. You win.

Give us more of a chance next time. Why do you always have to go on massive killing sprees that completely wipe out all other life in the galaxy?

Because that is the only way to win the game. That is my fault, I suppose. Maybe next time I will make a wussy little sit-on-your-ass and make nice-talk game, featuring gay cowboys instead ov a massive intersteller war.

:0

I jest, you must know. I am working on a way to keep the gameflow going, without the sudden loss thing.

I lifted the cap on the yen you can harvest a system for, from a fleet. You can now get the full 10*value, if you have enough cargo space. I'm not sure if I like this, because that makes the best way to get cash a fleet ov 120 junks parked at a blue super.

Also, I re-did the system assaults. someone try them out.

heh. I saw that pop. I think I fixed it.

I mean, I think I prevented it from happening again.

you will have to start over.

...

Here is a little hint - I just opened beta 3b. if you start over and select that galaxy instead ov 3a, you can get a head start on truckler.

I've attacked a few systems. It is slower to take them. Is there a limit to how much damage you can do? My armada is huge, normally small and medium systems just instantly vaporize. Is it harder to take systems? Because I found it pretty tough to take out systems until I found some Nova Bombers. Those R-1 and 5's weren't cutting it for population 12 systems.

I'd hate to see the game evolve so that Nova Bombers and AX-99s are mandatory to win.
