Just a shame it currently lacks the technology and ship design depth of SE, but I know that is being improved over time
Like SE, it is mainly one programmer doing all the work
I have got Star Ruler as well, but it's more of a AoE style RTS with 4x elements, then a 4x game, and since it's purely about building the strongest fleets to wipe out the other players... it's too one tracked for my taste

There is a f2p mmo Space Empires game on Facebook, it's not terrible and I do kill a small amount of time on it, but it's nothing special and tbh doesn't have the proper SE flavour

Well, tbf, most of the face I knew aren't really around, and I've not been able to get onto the IRC in a very long time

I last played SE V about a year ago but I think I'm going to go back to it. I don't have SE IV (maybe I'm missing something).

After many years I am back to SE IV. First game the AI kicked my arse. I was boxed in and the Space Vikings ran me over. Nothing like being humiliated by your own creation =P.

Second game I dominated pretty much from start. I noticed some pretty awful AI designs on races that I never got around to update. So I am back to playing around with the AI files. Currently have the Phong for Devnull Mod in the works =).

I would definitely do that.
SE IV was the live-for-many-years on my machines. SE V lived about a month.

ALTHO to be fair...
the SEIV game itself is far from impressive. It feels like a demo. 8 nations, tiny galaxy, short game. It was the community here that turned it into over 300 nations, huge galaxies, and a full game. The downloadable mods is what makes the game. So in all truthfulness I have not checked to see if the player community has saved SEV but from what I hear it does not seem to be

Well, SE V isn't a bad game it just didn't do it for me. There were/are a lot of issues with the UI. I also think the weapons show a lot of info which is not very clear. Hmm... I tried the wonderful Black UI mod and a few selfmade mods to the filse, but still the game had only about (like the most respectful Gandalf already pointed out) a month wirth of life on my digital monster. SE IV on the other hand... well it's great. Just like SE II and SE III before it. So go ahead and find SE IV, shouldn't make a huge dent in your finances nowadays.

Thumbs up Re: Who's Left?

The Phong AI for Devnull Mod turned out pretty well. I am in the mood for more modding and will do at least one more AI and some component tweaks to areas that have not been touched yet (small weapons).

I wonder, is anyone still interested in seeing these updates released? And were would be the best place to publish them these days?

Hello Rollo, Been a long time mate. I'd recommend that you publish at the spaceempires.net site. It still seems to be pretty active from time to time.

I think this is my first post here in a couple of years. Wow, how time flies. Sure do miss the hours and hours each day of reading posts and posting messages here. The good old days.
