Random Maps

Hey guys,

Here's a shot of the first random map created for the Skirmish DLC.
The user chooses the amount of asteroides/planets, and the game generates a random map, this one is insanely big, it has 60 asteroid jump points and 32 planets :mrgreen:
We are also playing around with the idea that in Skirmish, Asteroid fields have finite resources, will see how that goes.

I hope you guys don't do finite resources. In large strategy games like Sins of a Solar Empire and Supreme Commander having to worry about resource depletion would get in the way of military strategy, and it looks like Gemini Wars has a similar scale.

Looking good!

I kind of agree with the anti-finite resources sentiment. However, I do love strategically placed resources and supply lines. Dynamic choke points on random maps could create for some exciting stuff! Keep up the good work, looks close.

I feel like a husk waiting for this. It's been too long since a good strategy game with an actual story came along, skirmish looks to be the icing.

Sorry to derail with the resources spiel. Any idea when the skirmish mode will be available? Just curious. Thanks again for the updates.

Yeah, if we do make the resources finite, it will be in a checkbox before starting the map, along with amount of resources, tech level at start, etc,etc.
I can't give you a date yet for when it will be ready.

All complaining about finite resources aside, Gemini Wars looks like it will be a great game, and the possibilities of Skirmish sound great.
