Steve,

What are you using to draw the System Map? Are you directly drawing onto a WPF Canvas or using some other process/component?

Looks good...very exciting.  Hoping to see substantial performance improvements :)

Any other architectural changes?  SQLite or MS SQL localdb vs Access?   Multi-threading things like system production?

I'm using GDI on the Winform background. Simple and quick :)

Does this mean that C# Aurora's turn times take the same amount of time on turn one and turn 5813259? Does this mean that the game won't slow down the longer you play?

That is something I've always wanted the most of this game

Later turns means more systems, ships, etc so it will run more slowly than on turn 1. However, I hope it will still be significantly faster than now.

Nothing major. Still Access at the moment so I can share the same database as Aurora, although I am setting up the data access so I can swap DB later.

Maybe look into SQLite. No installation on the user system of a database system. Plus you can programatically write the actual database.

Is the C# version going to replace the current version? Ie will all future versions be released as C# architecture or will the old access stuff still be updated too?

Once C# is done, that will be the active version of Aurora. VB6 Aurora will probably stay at v7.2 (next release).

That's awesome really, you mentioned months earlier but it didn't sink in. Considering how long term aurora is we would be fine waiting a year for the c version. I wonder if taking the move to c would allow dispensing with the database altogether or finding some alternative more efficient method.

Looks amazing, and I can't wait for processing improvement. So many things I currently deliberately forsake of the game in trade for performance. It would be a sudden jump in possibilities if that could run without too much drop.
Even if it's not too much though, the improved design is already worth it.

Skillful comeback.

I would love to see pictures of some of these sample screens in a 1024x768 resolution, or thereabouts.  Do you have a laptop or other small screen that could run the C# code for us to check out?
