No weekly update last week, and a bare minimum one this week – not due to lack of progress, but lack of time. I’ve been plugging away at the new Auto-pilot, which has involved some intricate work with n-point splines… Read More »

Now I’m building a ‘consistent’ universe for the NPC’s to play in (as well as you), I’ve finally (grudgingly) turned my attention to ensuring all the various vessel models have a consistent scale against each other. To date – aside… Read More »

Well, after playing the Free to Play on Steam – there’s no doubt in my mind – the guys behind Star Conflict have nailed the visual bar I wanted to aim at for Dominium. Sadly for me, I’m a large… Read More »
