Just after a few new 4X games...
Anyone know any?

I've got stuff like IG2 (old!), all the TW games, Settlers, Civs, Sword of the Stars, Sins of a Solar Empire & plenty more.

This was the PC's bread & butter once upon...

I call that my F:\ drive :P

I've got DK2!

I got that new Dungeons game on Steam (the rip off of DK). Only had a ten minute blast on it mind may try get into.

Just X3:Albion Prelude DLC for X3:TC - quite enjoying myself :)

Hugely disappointed with Dungeons. Thank goodness for demos.

FTL : Faster Than Light.
It is excellent.
I would have preferred a longer game though. Maybe 100+ sectors but you can't have everything.

This game got me wanting a RTS space sim. Does anyone know one that has most of the following.

Research.
Colonising.
Possibly structure choice/placement
Exploration.
Designing ships/weapons.
Non-linear
Possibly the most important. Automated combat or very basic, non-twitch.


Examples of games with a similar style.

Imperium Galactica 2 - Maybe without having to control the tanks.
Master of Orion 2 - Never played it. Other than being old, this looks perfect.
Spore - I like the Terra forming idea.

There's Sword of the Stars and Sins of a Solar Empire that are alright. SoTS is one of my faves but it is pretty basic in some ways, and complex in others. Don't bother with SOTS 2 it's shit.

Oops, Sorry.
Missed the reply.

I tried it but couldn't really understand how to play it.

It's a bit awkward at first and not the most awesome game but if you get into it it's worth a few replays. I think I paid £5 for it and I've got 199 hours played so I got my money's worth.

Good multiplayer too supported via Steam :)

Endless Space seems good. Just played the demo on Steam.
