Re: Which SC3 species do you consider Canon?

I stopped playing SC3 just in the middle of the game .... Too annoying travel, got always stuck in this semi-3D starcloud because I thought that this other star is just a little distance away - set course - found out that the viewing angle was sort of distracting - ended up with no fuel.... SC1 and ...

Re: New Game design in progress, looks like a SC2 successor

What I understood, this game "Everspace" is a 3D shooter but additional with mission like tasks which remembered me to the old day of Starcon I+II.

Re: iPhone app iDOS

Er, yeah. So, outside of this terrible example, do you guys think handheld Star Control is a good idea? Does it need physically findable buttons to work? There is a brandnew game for iphone and ipad out. The name is "Galaxy on Fire2". Cute graphics, planets, systems and ships nicely done, gameplay ...

Re: Do you know the ancestor of all Starcon games ?

Download area ?

Hello,
does it make sense to put the open source game (the revamped SCII) into a download area?

At least can´t there be a link table ?
Regards from the Utwig mother planet :D
