Hello everyone!

I'm going to update you about the recent time regarding Star Apocalypse development.

As some of you have seen, I've made a movie detailing about unit selection & orders. If you haven't seen the video yet, feel free to check it out in the videos section!

The past weeks I've been working on a game library (.dll file) which doesn't use XNA and contains most of the game logic which can be generally used for multiple games. It has all methods, fields and classes listed as public. This way, people can make their own variations on the game with some programming skills. It's just a job of using this .dll file in your own .dll file, linking both to the user interface, and create your own user interface. It likely needs to be done in a .NET compliant language (since the library uses .NET 2.0, so it can also use mono). I'll release more things about this soon when it's in a more advanced state!

I've also been working on a new story for Star Apocalypse in the form of a sort of book. It is an entirely standalone story. The story can be found here. Feel free to discuss it on the forums. The link to the forums can be found in the pdf file, and on the ModDB page here. The pdf file is automatically updated when new chapters are added! If you really like the pdf file alot, you're free to donate a tiny donation on the webside (it has a paypal donate button there).

The general direction of the story is the same direction as the current story, it will only have far more detail, and is written in a way so that it can be used on different media. This takes more time though to write, but it will create a far deeper backstory.

That's what I wanted to tell about the recent events in all that is Star Apocalypse.

Till the next time!
