For almost a year this site was accessible only via the sourceforge projects section. And now it is once again on its original url: www.sector-37.com! I really hope my current hosting company will turn out to be more reliable than the last three ones...

Project is alive once again!

Sorry, that was a bad joke, but I just couldn't resist  =] Just wanted to notify you that I updated all the source code in the CVS repo. Nothing really new, I just uploaded all the changes that were made during the last half a year. Current version of the release is 1.5. Also I uploaded a new collection of shader demos with sources  and fixed some broken old links. See the Downloads section for the information on how to download this.

This project is declared closed because for the last half a year there wasn't any activity.

All sources were long before published.  I will give access to all models, textures, etc. to people who can prove that they are going to continue this project. I uploaded the latest demo of an Explosion component to the source section Also I made a final v1.4 binary / source release.

I thank everyone who supported us all this time and regret that we couldn't finish what we started.

  I'm sorry to say that out secondary file server not working properly, so I cannot upload any new files there, so you'll have to make use of the main file server for now.

  We have a discussion going on about the name of our game. Please leave your comments in the guestbook. Current contestants are: Outsiders, Freedom or Death!, Per Aspera ad Astra (through difficulties to the Stars), and Genocide of Minds.

 At last this cosmic strategy has a real Cosmos. I created a unit called MySpace, which is avaible in the  Downloads section. Also Explosion Manager was updated (+3 new explosion types), a serious bug was dealt with in MyAtmosphere and and update of  Movement Manager is avaible.

  And some statistics in the end... .During the last 6 weeks the size of sources (*.pas) more than doubled  and now equals 420Kb. That's over 280 pages of printed text.

I'm planning a new update soon (around 22 March 2005). It will have integrated Cosmos and improved fighter AI, so just wait...

  Not too many news this time. Our designer returned from the army. A person, who knows, how to make space textures, joined us. Much work is being done on the design document of the project.

I won't update files in the download page, because not much has changed since its last update (I mean visual stuff). Most work was done on the Movement Manager. I'll upload it with the project source in the beginning of March.
