Where Have We Been? What’s Up Next? Project Status!

Hi Everyone,

many of you might have noticed that our website disappeared. Unfortunately, this was due to Ubisoft notifying us that we would infringe their copyright with the images on this website. That’s why our website was offline for a long time and now does not contain the cool screenshots of our unofficial remake any more. I hope the changes I made are enough that Ubisoft is OK with this page now. If not, please notify me again (I wasn’t able to get more details from your side).

So, while these struggles combined with my masters thesis put a hold on my development efforts during the end of last year, we are now back working again. Thanks to the contributors that kept submitting cool new features and improvements building quite a pile of work for me ;).

The biggest change with the next update will be:

  • Ships! Thanks to @rpolzer, the ships are on a good way and thanks to @jaschaio, we will also get our own ship images!! This is a very important thing since the Amazon demo does not include all the required ship images. I added one of the ships below. However, the creation of these ships takes a lot of time, so this feature will still need a bit of time. If you know a 3d artist who’d like to help us, please get in touch with me!

Sorry for the delay in everything and that our page was down so long. We hope to bring you new features soon.

Best regards!

Website Refresh & Update Teaser

After far too long time, I finally managed to get a rework of this website done to make a bit more modern and mobile friendly. I hope you all like the design. As always, if you find a bug, let me know 😉 . Many thanks go to Diana Tischler for her help.

I know the last update was quite a while ago, so I wanted to teaser you the next incoming update! As some of you might have already seen on Github, Tom Pratt is investing a lot of work into our Android App to finally make it playable again. Some of you we’re always wondering, why we didn’t use the same user interface for Android as we use for PC. Well, that’s mainly because the buttons would be to tiny on a phone and thus make it hard to play the game. We then started to create an new UI for it but didn’t get far before Michael didn’t have the time any more.

But now, Tom has completely reworked it and I think the results are very good already. But see for yourself:

While Tom is finishing up some stuff on this major change, you can follow the progress on Github.

Besides that, the AI also got a major update allowing it to utilize pioneers making it even harder to fight against it!


I hope we will be able to get to a release soon (a month or so). We will see 😉

Best regards!
