The Second Antarean War is a multiplayer team-based real time strategic battle simulator. It simulates battle between spaceships in fully accessible 3d space. As an admiral, you can call in different types of ships for different situations. The game aims to be played against other people, not the game itself. The 3d navigation, order queues, smart orders and no limits on build queues aim to hide the visible user interface completely and allow you to focus on the battle at hand. You can join any battle in progress at any time. Some battles start small and grow in player size and in their importance to universal scale. The universe is persistent. Each battle has an impact on how well your faction does. Winning battles progresses the war and earns you medals, rank and respect from people you play with and strikes fear into players you fight against. Good hunting.

...so you click on a system, go to the system, and then the game returns to 2D?... go back out, 3D star cluster map, and you can tell you fleets to move from one system to another?

Its all 3d, and you zoom in and out sort of like google maps instead of "switch views."

Its only a small part of the galaxy actually. The bulges you see are the star clusters and nebulas.

Would be cool to see a realistic representation of the rest of the galaxy as the background (as in, you would see the rest of the galaxy from the side).

there is only one galaxy in the AFF universe, the milky way (our actual galaxy). This is the small portion of discovered space that humanity has branched out into.

I hope that 'Unknown' marker is just a placeholder. No military map would be caught dead with a 'Here Be Dragons'. ;)

This is a wip render of our thoughts on how the galaxy map should look. How can we translate maps into 3d and have it work.
