A turn-based grand strategy game in space: Defend Earth against an alien invasion from the edge of the Solar System. Negotiate with the various governments of Earth and secure their support - One way or the other. Establish your bases on other planets to take the fight to the enemy. Design and build powerful spaceships, then take them into battle.
With the 1.00 release coming up soon, I have opened up the character creator one last time. Through this, you can design your own character to be added to Solar War. This feature is available to everyone who bought or still buys the game before the release.
Since this was originally promised as a bonus for Alpha users only, Beta customers will only have 35 character points available to build their character instead the the 50 Alpha users get. Alpha characters also get a special trait that reduces promotion cost by 5 experience points.
Once you have finished making your officer character, it will be included in the game starting from the next released update (possibly excepting minor bugfix updates ending with a letter).
Connecting your Desura copy of the game to the Solar War site also gives you instant access to the latest standalone installers for the Windows and Linux versions of the game.

Quite a good game here. But quite expensive for old school graphics.
+ Designing own ships
+ The map
+ tactical battles
+ No bug
--- graphics (i don't really mind btw but others would)
- Officer's management quite difficult to understand and handle

I just released Solar War update 1.03 at T.co - Most importantly, armor resistance got an overdue fix.

@bgreman Yes, I plan to do that if and when it's greenlit. The game is at "82% to the top 100" right now, so it might take a while.

Spent 2 hours hunting down a weird performance problem. Problem went away when I rebooted. I hate graphics drivers sometimes.

Minecraft has the same issue, looks like the Nvidia driver doesn't automatically recognize Java based games.

From my recent support mails, this happens a lot with Nvidia dual GPU setups.

If you have any games in progress that had this problem, the new version should allow you to continue them.
