Space Empires Expansions?

Post by Jambo »

Just wondered if there's any roadmap to develop Space Empires expansions in the future?

Great implementation by the way!

Don't mean to pry, but is there a bit of a longer answer. Love the game, and really like how playing on BGA saves a lot of the bookkeeping complexity of the game. Is this something that encouraging the designer would help?

It can't hurt, but...
...I need something more concrete, perhaps SE4X could go premium, but...
...expansion rules are a real nightmare to implement and are not "well" written.
I explain, you need a perfect logic and to consider all edge cases when you go to program it, it is not the case for SE4X rules.
There are too many rules to clarify before going to code.

Does this relate to some specific rules from the expansions more, than others? Are there perhaps some that are "clear' enough to be considered for potential inclusion?

In all cases, it was too much time.
When I will have time to spend, I will first fix some SE4X bugs (logs problem, player elimination bug).

Thx! Yeah, the logs are pretty much unusable except combat 8-)

For those interested in playing the Space Empires 4X expansions online, there is a VASSAL module.
There's a server on Discord for finding opponents. PM me for details.
