An idea of this project has been originated from the old PBEM (Play-by-emal) Galaxy games takingplace a while ago (google 'PBEM Galaxy' to find out more). Those who have played these games will find some similarity, but the game's layout, goals, and scale have changed dramatically.Although, the ability to send orders via emails still supported, the new Galaxy Viewer can talk directly to the server via internet.The game is turn based, i.e. the game server makes a turn, sends you a report, you analyse the reportusing an existing Galaxy Viewer application, create your orders and send them back to the server. It reminds a chess game, but you play against many other players at the same time. The game server simulates an expanding universe with already thousands of star systems and a number of races. Some of the races are ruled by the real human players, some - by the server (AI nations). You may join as a new race (or nation). In this case you will be placed in some sector of an existing galaxy, having just one planet and some initial resources to start. Then you will try to research and occupy the nearby systems, design and build various ships, negotiate with your neighbours... You also may join as an existing race which has no owner.Your goal in the game is to dominate in your galaxy, become a Master or even an Emperor of the Galaxy. To achieve that you need to defeat your neighbours and expand colonizing more and more star systems. You need to build up a strong economy and powerful fleet. Even if you have succeeded in your goal and eliminated all the opponents in your galaxy, the game isn't over for you if you want to continue. You can explore the space, find another galaxy and invade it... Each can use own strategy to succeed.Because all the players are anonymous, each player can create a specific image of its nation, with itsown moral and laws. Players may create alliances, make treaties, use intrigue and treachery.The Universe is unlimited. It has several galaxies and more than 4500 star systems. The Universe is expanded when necessary to fit new races. Every turn thousands of ships are being built, traveling in different destinations, clashing in hundreds battles and being destroyed. Every turn tens systems get colonized, or invaded or bombed out. It's always something going on...This game is the best suitable for IT people, especially the programmers, who like writing commands and some scripting code.
The game is now open for new players...
