Welcome all, to the new Solar Empire site, Fall of the Imperial Empire. It's taken almost a year of working behind the scenes to rebuild from scratch every single part of the site, but it's been worth it.
Imperial is now much more stable, much prettier (in my opinion) and easier to use on multiple devices, though continued refinement is planned. I hope you all enjoy the new site including the changes I have made.
Yes, the name is a playful dig at our dwindling numbers
Despite the very low amount of traffic and players to the site, I thought I'd just post up to say that I am still around and do still check in on the site regularly. I still have plans and continue to work on an updated version of the site which I hope to get live next year.
As much as it may seem pointless to invest more time in what can be accurately described as a dying, or even dead, site / community, Solar Empire has always been a hobby and interest for me. It's also the reason I have a career and as a result I've learnt so much more that I want to put back in to the site.
One elusive component to Solar Empire that many a dev has touched upon, has been automated "players" (or AI's) such as Aliens, Pirates or the Sol Navy. This is something I would like to do more work on to try and make the game a bit more interesting when there are so few players around.
As always, I'll keep you all updated and keep an ever watchful eye on all of the games :)
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Just a quick notice that the server hosting Imperial is going through some software upgrades and configuration which may result in a some minor downtime and slow connection speeds. Hopefully this shouldn't go on for too long and I'll let everyone know once this process is completePosted by: Dead Eye
