I just want to play with 6+ empires at start, all spoilers, and with a high generation chance without getting a slowdown. To me those other features, while nice and very useful, are somewhat secondary.

This x1000. I'm gaming on a pretty decent rig* and Aurora can be painfully sluggish. And I know most of that stems from the VB/Access combo. Even with no new features, a code refactoring/language re-write and a database switch should be a godsend for speed.


*Core i7-4770, SSD drive, 16GB RAM, nVidia GTX 650 Ti 2GB, running Lubuntu Linux with Aurora in Wine.

So very excited for this! I'm a relative newcomer to Aurora 4x, and while I've played for several hours I always end up going away just to come back given the oddities and relative clunkiness of the UI.  Updating the code to a much more modern language and toolchain will hopefully help, over time, the pain and make it that much easier to maintain! Can't wait for the first playable alpha/beta/whatever!

Funny thought, with it written in C# might even be Linux compatible now :)

I always thought winforms on Linux was a no-go, but just googled and found this:
http://www.mono-project.com/docs/gui/winforms/

No idea how well it works or if Steve would have any interest in trying to compile it with mono. And there is probably lots of other stuff that is Windows-specific anyway.

There might very well be issues simply compiling for Linux since there might be some very specific Windows only stuff.  However, I suspect unless he's gone out of his way there's probably a lot less than we think.  Or possibly none, it might simply run either directly on Mono (remember it's CLI, more or less a virtualized execution environment) or with a simple recompile using Mono tools.

I vote he gets done with basically all of the work to bring feature parity with the older VB version in C# before he considers looking into it  :)

There probably hasnt been updates, because he hasnt been working on it. So if he were to update, it would probably be to state, that he hasnt worked on it.

Maybe for Xmas 2017 :)

It isn't going to be ready this year. I do have a few days off next week and hope to make some progress on system generation. However, I am probably at least six months away from completion. I do hope to get a test game started earlier than that - maybe 2-3 months. It really depends on my available free time.
