That would be quite fascinating. Maybe nebulas and such could be #manysites.

There was a released game based on ASL (about 8-10 yrs, ago). I bought it and I couldn't even tell you the name of the game. It was in 'real time' and quite annoying to play! While you were giving your units on the north part of the map, the computer was chewing up your units on the south. I watched as one of my units just got shot up while standing there. If you didn't give them orders they would stand there and be a target. This was one game where pausing and giving orders would have worked better than the real time mode where pausing the game just lets you look at who's about to get whacked! You just can't compete with the speed of the computer to issue orders and run real time. Needless to say, I'm not a big fan of 'real time', unless it's a flight type simulator or you just have one unit to command. A good 'real time' game that I enjoyed was Breach 3. You could pause the game and give orders to each unit while paused.

It sounds like you refer to the "abomination" that merely wore the great name of Squad Leader, but had little if any conection with that great game.

I believe it was called Beyond Squad Leader, but I am not fully sure. I try to forget games that were as bad as that one was.

Again Leslie, I don't recall the name of the game and you and I know why. The game was a poor product! Another game AH released years ago was "Under Fire" which was probably one of the best combat games I've played on a computer. ASL is still a board game until someone can program an AI for it on a computer.
That is why I'm all for SEV coming out when it is DONE and not before! There's no rush we all have other games to keep us busy and many hours of protecting our worlds from enemies!

And everyone far enough away to not be affected laughs at the idiot who just killed himself. You really should restrict the use of such spells to your underlings, and only when they're sufficiently far away from you. Of course, finding an underling willing to cast such a spell might be a bit problematic...

I would like to see something along the lines of Renegade
Legion Interceptor by AH.

A tactical turn based game designed more around fighter
operations.

Merchant Prince III... the second one was basically a slightly graphically souped-up version of the first, but who can resist a game where you can hire someone to assassinate the Pope?
