Found this on my hard disk last night and fired it up for a game. I'd forgotten just how good it is. I ended up winning but only had my four core planets left as the Zyrgol had wiped out all my smaller colonies. Pretty empty galaxy in the end. I prefer the real-time space combat with research, development and ship design, but turn off trading and go for calculated ground combat. Playing against five other races in a large galaxy with anomalies and plenty of worlds. This may be a shot in the dark as it's been out of development for so long, but is anyone else still playing it? And how do you play?
