It isn't really a good idea to start emulating the behavior in that light bulb and forumers joke thread...

How do you play the game anyway? I've tried, and I have no idea what I'm supposed to do.

(And the movement controls suck)

Hi all,
Thanks for your interest in SOTS. A lil birdie told me there was a few questions here. There has been a few answers at these other SOTS discussions...

http://forums.avault.com/cgi-bin/ult...3;t=006636;p=3

http://www.abandonia.com/forum/index...0&#entry134557

I wouldn't think of it as something that was meant to replace Grand Empires 4X games like SE as much as compliment them. SOTS concentrates on level of detail in tactical and production choices and strives to do them justice in 3-D combat. Granted you will not being building movie theaters to keep a planet happy...on the other had you will be nesting minelayers with EW destroyers and slipping torpedo groups behind moons to take down command ships in the backfield.

Ask anything you are still curious about and I will be happy to pop in and answer.

Ah, nice to see you here, Mec, the torpedo's behind moon does sound fun... although I'd rather blow up the moon and let nature work on my enemies.
