Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

I've been following AotSS for...five years now? It's been a little while, at any rate. I've been interested in the project ever since I first stumbled across it. I backed it on KS as soon as the campaign launched, although you're right that things aren't looking good for it. :( It's a shame, as the ...

Re: Joker's web page is gone....

Bummer to hear. On the other hand, we're probably lucky that his site was up as long as it was. and Gowron's joining. Has anyone ever found out for sure what happened to Gowron? I know it was generally speculated/assumed he passed away, but I'm curious whether we ever got any sort of confirmation.

Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

A pretty fair review, I'd say. I don't miss some of the features you wish the game had (at least not as much), but I certainly wouldn't complain if the devs ended up adding them in at some point. Nice videos, too! They give a good overview of the game. I hope you don't mind, but I shared them over o...

Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

I have to say, I'm really digging the latest edition of ISG's 1.2 beta update. Lots of balance changes that improve the early game flow, so you're not just hitting end-turn a bunch of times in the beginning before getting to the "good stuff". I'm finding it's a huge improvement!

Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

Haha, I was just going to post that the new update nixes the old "capturing monsters" gimmick, as it's both a bit unbalanced, and was never intended by the developers anyway. Nice trick with the beam weapons and H3 resource(s), though, Dewbacca ! I'll definitely need to try that next time. :cool:

Agreed. I'm guessing the devs felt that the resulting negative population growth was penalty enough, but honestly it makes too much sense to not include a morale hit as well.

Re: Life on Venus?

Yeah, I read about that as well. Pretty cool!

Even if it eventually turns out there's *not* life on Venus, it would indicate there must be another way that particular gas can form, which would still be a remarkable discovery. :)

Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

Huh; interesting comments on the ISG's AI, Dewbacca . I personally haven't found it to be as bad (playing Normal difficulty), but maybe I've just been lucky? It could also depend on play-style; I tend to roleplay more in strategy games, as opposed to min-maxing. I do agree the starting positions nee...

Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

Ah, I see. In that case, then yes, I would generally concur with your assessment. :) DG looks promising, but it clearly still has a ways to go before it's ready for "prime time".

Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

If you haven't played ISG since it was in beta, I recommend giving it another try, as the game has come a long way since then. The devs have tweaked & fixed a lot of things in the last year.

Also: There's a larger galaxy size now. ;)

Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

Interstellar Space: Genesis is definitely worth getting, especially in its current state (and at the current sale price ;) ). It's not the "greatest game ever" -- yet -- but it's quite a lot of fun. ISG sticks fairly close to the standard 4x formula, yet it still innovates some and includes some pr...
