Not really playing much at the moment. Not much to do before the reset. Maybe I'll be more active after it. Fresh start and all.

...the only person you're playing with is YOURSELF.  :P

I'm looking forward to the addition of nebulae clouds, and changes to the combat system. I do not like outgunning my target by 1000 to 1 only to lose ships because only the weakest part of my fleet is contributing to the fight.

what do nebulae even do. and what is being done to fix the fundamental problem of expsnaniton

"Are the nebula for looks or do they have an effect in the game??"

Dave Case:
"They will have effects. Ships will be able to accelerate faster in
them (Boussard Ramjet -- probably an upgrade), probably use them for
some sort of mining type operation (Helium 3?) that you can use on
your planets as well. I might make the 2nd level of nebulae provide
ftl speeds, not sure about that one yet.
I'm also going to try to do something with yellow stars and red
giants. "

Not a bad idea, the game needs more ways to extend conflict range. Interestingly the way things are  'landlocked' probably comes a lot from restricting the game to 2 dimensions. Cause if you random walk in three dimensions you can get lost forever.

So, the galaxy has been reset. Who's playing again and where are you? :)

I'm at 1892.4, 1708.1

The game now has nebulae and power stations(buildings need power) among other additions.

I'll wait and be a bit sheepish on this. If quite a few of you start playing again and say it's better than before, I might join you.

I'm hoping Dave has been smart with the whole energy thing so you can't actually build all buildings on a single planet, but have to distribute things. No more PD on every planet without leaving out something else that's important. Hopefully :)

Probably not going to expand as much as I did the first time either. The whole 1000+ planets became quite unmanageable. Going to build myself a nice core of 100-200 planets and then maybe expand in further off places and make another cluster like that. Seems more manageable.

Glad to hear that. I've also noticed that Tan (or if not him, someone named just after him) is amongst my neighbours. Gotta scout you, my rival and nearby competitor  ;D!

Considering the low energy cost for the stuff I've built so far, I don't think it is going to be a big issue. I've yet to build Planetary Defense and Mind control which may be BIG consumers. But then they would have to be, otherwise it looks like I can support everything in my old build with a single power plant, assuming it is running at full capacity.
