Here are a couple of screenshots from recent work on the game.

The latest feature I have been working on is the ship refitting and replacement system.

  • Only the ship roles can be specified when creating squadrons or configuring fighter/mining/salvage command facilities.
  • When a ship is built, it will automatically be sent to the correct assignment (corresponding to its role) If the ship is not needed then it will be stockpiled in the reserves.
  • Each role can contain any number of designs, but the latest designs will be prioritized for replacements.
  • Ships with obsolete designs will be sent back to the reserves if there are enough newer replacements.

Hahaha good one! Indeed it's been quite a long time... perhaps it would be nice to aim for a release for a change.

Thanks for the update Stuart!
