Awesome! Not sure if I'll have time to check it out, what with the Chinese New Year festivities and the Superbowl. But hopefully soon!

Re: SV8 Beta Download


Hey Glitch, you are back again! I have quite a few comments and bugs to report here.

So far the new version seems to run very smooth even with many starships on the board. Definitely an improvement from pervious versions in that area. I would like a way to have a zoom (out) capability to manage a larger area especially on larger maps.

One thing about the AI selection, when I select Extreme setting, I expected to face brains like my Stratego4 and at least Athenus, but I happen to get a game where I faced Beginner which was weird. Can you put a minimum brain level for the higher difficulty settings?

When I watch Brain battles, I can actually affect the Brain battle by building shields and or scanners on independent star systems.

Is the SCG multiplayer server up? I can't seem to connect to it right now.

Finally, having this game open source now allows the possibility to make a Brain Development Application where not only can the script be developed (plenty of these around), but actually have a small test case simulation testing individual functions and debugging them at the same time without having to build an entire brain around these functions.

Hi beat,

Yes, hope you can get into the source at some point and make some awesome extensions like the one you mentioned emoticon The multi-player server isn't running right now, I don't have a static IP here.
