I played this game waaay back in '05 or something and it had me in front of the screen for weeks. Just came by to see if the creator had made something new, but nothing new from this guy unfortunately.
If you haven't played this yet, don't wait any longer.
I love the game and i get a huge empire but whenever i try to build a station it disappears once i come back to the planet.It's really bugging me and it's why i stopped playing the game last time.
this game is simply amazing you should make more like it!

To take taken planets, you must eliminate all ships related to the government planet to minimize and obliberate strength (strength is protection for the planet). When the strength is negative, the population will start to move away since of "the lack of protection" offered by the government. After that the planet will be unhabitated by anyone, just make sure you get there first before some other people do. I know this since of observing the Lysia goverment. Great game by the way, just one thing, can there be a mute button since I use a machine gun and the sound seems to wreck the speakers.
