Possibly 1900-era with 6-7 player races or maybe some form of WH40k Great Crusade (so more WH30k) with a single player race. Or I may change my mind and go for something completely different.

I managed to find a copy of Conway's All the Worlds Fighting Ships 1906 - 1921, so that would be the basis of the first one. For the second, I would add some extra code to generate 'lost human' NPRs as well as the normal 'Xenos Scum'
The colonial wars are dead? I would have loved to see some of it in C#

Ended, the Colonial Wars have :)

While the data has been transferred into the new C# database and I have been using it for testing, it would be a major task to pick up again after more than two years. Besides, I want something on a smaller scale for testing purposes. Longer-term, I will go back to something on the scale of the Colonial Wars. One of the reasons for the rewrite is to make huge games much easier.
Perhaps something like Earth central government putting down rebel colony that causes a domino effect of more colonies rebelling and declaring independence as a reaction.
It would be an interesting scenario to try out, rebel colonies that have little to nothing in terms of military power versus the Earth government, which is running against the clock as it's now cut off from resource and wealth sources while the rebels can only grow stronger.

Progress is unfortunately going to slow considerably for the next three weeks as I will be on a business trip to Melbourne (for my day job). I will still be checking the forums, but I am unlikely to get any development done (as I will only have my work laptop).

Yes, I hear the weather isn't great - just about the worst time of year to visit. However, I also hear there is quite a large casino, which has a good poker room :)

The weather front has moved on,  should be pretty ok, bit of rain Saturday and Sunday but apart from that, an English Summer

You in Melbourne?

I haven't been before so any recommendations welcome for places to eat or evenings out. I also have a couple of weekends to kill so suggestions welcome for places to visit, including those within short-haul flight range. I might be in Sydney for a couple of days as well.

Try and get to an Aussie Rules Footy game! I play for the Footy team in Houston, TX, but have never been to Australia and never seen a "real" game. There a number of teams in the Melbourne area so you might be able to catch a game at the MGC. I am a Hawks supporter, which is one of the Melbourne teams.

Tasmania, a 45 minute flight over the water,  I haven't been to Melbourne (outside the Airport) since 2008 though,  I do heartily recommend http://www.vlados.com.au/ If you like meat,  though expensive his exclusively meat set menu is amazing,  All the cooking is done by the owner, who has cooked every meal in the place since the 60's, and since it's a set menu he's had a LOT of practice!

as for places to eat, pretty much all of Lygon street is restaurants, and bad restaurants don't last long in Melbourne!  there are also a lot of pretty nifty places to eat around Crown (the casino, though the restaurants IN the casino are a bit sub-standard)

While you are in Melbourne try and see a football match at the MCG,  it will be expensive but nothing compares to seeing Aussie Rules in the G (and make sure you have a four 'n twenty while there!)

The Pentridge Prison Ghost Tour is also pretty cool from what I've heard (and the least over the top expensive thing I've suggested :D)

Federation Square is an interesting place to see as well (especially now they've decided to heritage list it to stop Apple building a shop there!)

Lots of great places to eat in Melbourne, pretty much cant find a bad feed

Whenever I am back I always hit my favourites though,

The Merrywell, (at the Casino) great burgers and drinks.
Stalactites, on Lonsdale St in the City.  Greek food, you wont regret it.  (get a lamb souvlaki) 
If you're near the Queen Vic Markets on a Saturday or Sunday go and find the hot dog shop inside, also at the markets find the hot jam donuts truck as its like 2 bucks for 3 donuts they make them fresh to order.  They are gold with a morning coffee.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Now in Melbourne! Several people have suggested Aussie rules (offline as well) so will try to do that and i will definitely visit a few restaurants.

I'll try to get to the other suggestions as well.

He's said before he's about 90% done, but he has yet to run a full test game so it'll probably still be quite a while.
