A strategic management game, best described as a sci-fi tower defence game with moving spaceships and configurable units. Design your own ships from a series of hulls+modular components, group the ships into a fleet, give the fleet orders and positions and then watch it engage in OTT gratuitous space battles against enemy fleets.

Nice game, all the DLCs seem to work on Linux as well. Just need a trick first though, got to convert all the BMP and DDS files to JPEG and PNG (this also helps witht he white screen bug).**

There are still some issues like using registration code to play the campaign in some cases. Other than that the game is fine.

Is there a way to know which version Desura provides? The latest should be 1.60.

So I bought the game from GSB's official website, but I can't get a shortcut here for the mods. Help, please?

For the DLC, I made a script to install them in Linux (no Windows nor Wine needed). You can find it on the Positech forum.

At first I really liked this game... especially for the price I payed. Then it started to feel really monotonous and excessively difficult to a point where I felt like throwing something out a window. Even though you can set a lot of peramiters on how the AI behaves, the AI is still pretty stupid. You can't intervene AT ALL and have to just sit back and watch the battles, which is the most annoying thing I've ever experienced. It wouldn't be so bad if the AI wasn't so stupid, but still I want to…

I like the way doing that unifies my concept of screen space for both GUI stuff and in-world stuff. It could probably be optimised though.

Ive never used matrices much, which is why I don't use true hardware TnL, I calculate each objects screen position, then send it to the card
