StarDrive is a 4X Action-Strategy game where the goal is to build a space empire. Starting with a single planet and a small number of space-worthy vessels, you forge out into the galaxy, exploring new worlds, building new colonies, and discovering the StarDrive universe. The heart of StarDrive is its ship design and combat engine. StarDrive takes a module-based approach to ship design, allowing the player to create custom ship designs where the composition and placement of ship modules really matters to the performance of a ship in combat. In combat, if your portside armor is taking a beating, then rotate around and show them the starboard side! Hide behind a friendly capital ship's shields, warp into and out of the fray, launch fighters, lay mines, and so much more.

So I wasn't intending for this to go up for alpha funding yet! But it seems that the Desura folks made the decision to launch it, so I'm going to open it up to the kickstarter people.

So, if i understand, you design your command ship and captain it. And the rest of your fleet is controlled RTS style. Pretty cool. Im watching.
Another question. Is there only one command ship hull template, or can you pick others as you go along?
