That sounds like a really cool idea. I would probably prefer it to be toggle-able, and ideally, adjustable. It would also be nice if it showed the change from the last report/beginning of the game (whichever is relevant, or possibly both), to help track how much progress you've made.

Thank you for feedback.  Yes toggleable was in my mind as well.
The great thing about this is that if we could have same or more simplified tracked data on the AI after creation of them and tie that to the Intelligence aspect of the game, to track their progress as well.  With factors that affect the accuracy of those reports.  The Arms race is on! 😉

Great game!

I would love if we can have a forced stop of time at every new year and be presented with a yearly report that shows the progress of your Empire.   If we can extract that to an excel document would be a very nice bonus. 

That's a really good idea - I find it sometimes difficult to know how well I've been doing from an economic stand point - especially if I'm playing a long and slow game; sometimes it can be ages till I actually realise I've been doing poorly. 

A yearly status report somewhere would be great - I'd hide it behind a button that would bring up the last report when pressed.

Apologies for the lack of updates in a while. Work and home life has taken me away from Aurora for a few weeks (and also reading all nine Safehold books in a row :)). I should be back programming this week though.

Did you finish them yet.  Their very good.  A couple of the later books I thought were a little long winded at times. 

But, after ready those, it's hard to find books that are as well written.  Trying to push through 1634 but the writing is just awful at time.

Yes, completed all nine. Looking forward to the next one.

If you can read through all nine Safehold books straight then the focus and concentration needed to finish C# Aurora should come easily to you  ;D

(Is there going to be a next one? That series felt... kinda thoroughly finished)

Just finished the last book myself although been reading them over the course of a couple of years rather than a couple of weeks! After all that work the end did appear to be somewhat rushed to me. I think at the very end Weber does say he will have more stories for the main character to come so will be keeping an eye. Now if only Jonathan Lumpkin would finish his series.

Hi,

About Safehold, it is just the beginning:
next step : finish the church (and the inquisition in the harchong empire)
Then face the return of the archangels (and the rakurai)
So you can start the main plot : the Gbaba !

With perhaps a bonus link with the dahak trilogy...

Not saying he won't link them, but the technologies in both universes are too dissimilar. That said, I would like to see more Dahak stories. And the Excalibur setting. And Apocalypse Troll. And even the space vampires...

frakk you Weber! Write more dammit!

Read this little story that Weber wrote, if you haven't already.

He missed Apocalypse Troll, Excalibur, Out of the Dark, and the March series in that.

Blast it, Steve.  For once, you've even managed to come up with a good enough excuse that I can't be mad at you for it.

Already done, I'm a big fan, but thanks OJsDad for the link.

Erik, about technology, I don't see why both universe are not compatible.
In Safehold, there is IMHO not a lot of hard data about federation tech.

The sole real conflict would be that Gbaba are isolationnist and attacked only after the federation found them, while achuultani are actively looking for sentient to exterminate. Would safehold be the seed of the first imperium ?

Let's wait and see (not too long I hope)

I'd say Safehold tech is closer to the Honorverse tech than Dahak. Or possibly the Apocalypse Troll.

As for Safehold being the seed of the first Imperium, that couldn't be since Safeholdians originated on Terra.

One thing I do dislike about Weber is his tendency to leave things open, and then not continue on.
