Imperial Empire SE is an online, browser based, multiplayer, space strategy game based on Solar Empire, as originally conceived by Brian Livingston. Imperial Empire SE is a reimagined, modern take on the game, aiming to improve stability and usability across multiple devices.

The aim of the game is to build up your economy, establish your forces, and found your empire whilst allying with, or destroying, your opponents or friends! Multiple rounds can take place at the same time, each with their own unique set of rules and options allowing for a variety of gameplay styles

So, Captain, are you ready?

Version 3Apr 5th 2019

I began to look into some more site updates recently and ran head first into some issues with the way the underlying core of the site had been built two years ago. At the time I figured I'd just live with the few minor "bad practices" because it made my life easier and the code seemed neater... unfortunately this eventually came round to bite me in the ass.

So, for the past week I've spent my evenings reconfiguring the core and literally every single function that is used. That means that Imperial actually uses a more Object Orientated (OOP) approach for once. Fingers crossed there aren't too many bugs that I've introduced, but so far everything seems to be ticking along well.

The good news behind all of this boring stuff that I imagine you don't care about, is that I should be able to continue with my other plans!

Domain AliasMar 20th 2019

A bit of a non-update, but I thought it would be nice to let people know that I'm still around, development on project ideas is just slow due to them being complex.

I've picked up solarempire.uk as a sister / alias domain for the site. It doesn't especially effect anyone, but it was a nicety for my own sake more than anything else. You can visit the domain to get to the site, but you'll always be redirected to "official" address which is the SSL enabled www.solarempire.co.uk

Happy gaming!

Lost PasswordsOct 18th 2018

I recently noticed that there was a fault in the Lost Password system which was preventing it from sending out the recovery emails to those who requested it. First of all, my apologies about that, and for it taking so long for me to realise. I believe the fault occurred due to a server migration that took place in August. The good news though is that this system has been repaired, tested and is now fully operational once again.

Server activity is down once again and I know there's more I could do to keep it going, but I just haven't had the time or motivation (I remind myself more and more of Moriarty and Maugrim_The_Reaper). I hope one day to add to this project in a way that will make it enjoyable, even with low numbers of players.
