Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

Ooooh just heard about another MOO like project called Alliance of the Sacred Suns (that seems to have been doing public betas for years under the name Imperia5x) when I saw it's kickstarter campaign . Looks like an interesting attempt at being different from regular Master of Orion like 4x space st...

C&C, Red Alert, Heroes of Might & Magic, Master of Magic Mods for Civilization II

Hey guys! While I usually post about other peoples mods and indie projects etc that interest me, I figured I'd start a thread about the retro stuff I'm working on these days if it's of interest to anyone... Back in the 90s I used to muck around with Doom 2 and Civilization 2 modding but never finish...

Re: Civilization Series Favourite Scifi/Fantasy (incl Star Trek) TC Scenarios & Mods Hunt

Big update as I widened my search to get help from more communities out there and had some AWESOME responses from people so many thanks to everyone who's contacted me publicly and privately! I'm also starting to look more at newer Civilization games (4-6) and finding some good stuff. Someone pointed...

Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

If people are interested in more info I've finally just written a belated steam review with a big list of the game's pros and cons (IMO). https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198058803521/recommended/984680 Also just released some videos covering my thoughts too: Part 1 [bbvideo]https://www.yout...

Re: Armada 2 Fleet Operations 3rd party mods tour suggestions

Thanks mate! That's really good to know. I thought it was some super hard thing to do. A few days ago I actually found a pre-converted copy of the Babylon 5 mod ready to play in FO which was cool to see as I'm a huuuuuge B5 fan and have a whole section of my website devoted to B5 fan games (includin...

Armada 2 Fleet Operations 3rd party mods tour suggestions

Hey guys, I thought this place had a dedicated FO forum but I can't seem to find it now so I must have been imagining things lol. Anyway earlier this year I decided to make a Fleet Operations video tour on my retro gaming youtube channel to try and create some renewed interest in the game and these ...

Re: Everspace 2 (Freelancer & WCPrivateer Like Game)

This guy has done a good review of the Everspace 2 closed beta currently happening. I like how he constantly compares to Freelancer instead of other games haha. He mentioned planet surface stuff but yeah who knows if its gonna be like Freelancer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXARTskUbC0 [bbvideo]...

Re: Starpoint Gemini 3 (Freelancer & WCPrivateer Like Game)

Some cool news I saw today.. Starpoint Gemini 3 will be released soon and has added mod support which is good as the game looks super similar to Freelancer (they even added a mini Sirius sector to the game lol) so if there was ever a good candidate engine for a future Freelancer mod it's this game l...

Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

Well.. time was running out on the steam sale and the general response I'm getting in most places I asked was either silence or 'never heard of it so I don't know if it's good' haha.. However I watched this dudes let's play series below and that sold it for me.. so I’ve hit the button lol! As expect...

Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

Well it got funded in the end so I was glad to be wrong lol! Speaking of which I've found yet another love letter to Master of Orion except this one is more MOO2 like! Has anyone here tried Interstellar Space Genesis ? If so was it good? Was it stable? Apparently the indie team behind it consists of...

Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Final Episode 10 rant.. Kinda glad its all over as in these last few weeks it felt like I was just waiting for them to find new ways to disappoint me lol. Now that it's done I don't have to worry about it lol. So.. that last episode.. once again we've got some good things but mostly things that anno...

Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Probably noticed I haven't posted here since I blew up a bit over Ep5 haha. I have kept watching the show though but was less invested in it to continue posting my episode round ups. I said after ep 5 that they'd really need some good eps to undo the damage that did, so... Here's my thoughts on eps ...

Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Yeah.. episode 5.. wow.. If people here disliked it you don't have to worry about me arguing with you on this one guys. As this episode broke me too, or more precisely it broke my enjoyment of the show. I didn't enjoy that at all. I thought maybe if I sleep on it I'd feel better but nope, today I'm ...

Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Episode 4 seen (belated).. WE'RE OFF!: Well things have finally taken off! Enjoying the fact we're back in space.. loved the look of the Romulan refugee colony (particularly in the flashback sequences) with the giant 'world tree' background, although in the opening planet shot I wish we'd seen the E...
