The galactic empire has prospered and grown to encompass much of the existing known galaxy. The peace was enforced by the empire's vast armada of war ships. No one would dare stand against the monarchy, or they would be crushed. However, the monarchy tended to be fair and used force rarely. This led to most of the systems complying with the demands of the empire and a tenuous peace resulted.

That changed 30 years ago with the death of the previous ruler. Rather than accept the eldest child as the rightful heir, her children quarreled with each other. The argument became a war that continues to this day. The resources of all the systems have been drained to such a point that only the numerous capitol systems have any real power. The people have grown impatient, hungry and rebellious. They clamor for new leadership.

You were a general in the empire's armada. Growing impatient with the current war for succession, you have turned your back on the old empire and usurped control of one of the many systems in the empire. Your goal is to return the empire to its previous glory by establishing a new monarchy -- your own.

We never gave up on our space combat game, but it is now time to take it off the shelf it and start work on it again.

There isn't much to show yet. I hope to have more detailed posts as the work continues. Unfortunately, the original code isn't going to support what we want to do moving forward. Therefore, we are starting over with a brand new code base.

Our goal is to release it on a multitude of platforms. However, our primary focus at first will be desktop and android mobiles. From there, we will port to the iOS platforms.

Stay tuned!

I decided to turn on "Treat Warnings as Errors". Spent all day fixing 400 warnings. Code is now building cleanly!

@PeteLevineA Not yet. As typically happens, I get bogged down and move on. However, my passion lies with GU, so that's why I'm back to it.

@PeteLevineA Not yet. As ypically happens, I got bogged down in other things. My passion lies with GU and CP though. :)

Now it's time to play some "Out There". What can I say -- I'm addicted.
