I just want to say that this game has me in awe at it's fun complexity and depth. I am continually having 'ah-ha' moments in the game. It's great fun! I have not had this much 'fun' with a game in many years! Thank you for the time and effort you put into such a project. Great work!

Hi Steve

i am a new player too. I read the thread on the wargamer forum and i must say that  your game is really outstanding. I have looked for a complex 4x game for ages. My brain is exploding at the moment every time i start the game because it it so complex but it is really satisfiable.  :D  And i didn´t find the the installation difficult. Don´t know why people have problems with it. I can even play it on my 1680 x 945 notebook when i use  ResizeEnableRunner.

Keep up the good work.

Frank

BTW. What have the leader personality traits for an effect? Is there a limit of how many i can give to a leader and why should i  use a negative trait?

Hi, welcome to the game.

Aurora is designed with writing after-action reports and fiction in mind and the leader personality traits are for that purpose only. With so many officers in the game it makes writing after-action reports easier if each officer has a mini-personaility that you could use if you can't be bothered inventing one. Or, you can record your own for future reference. Negative traits can be used to make the character a little more interesting but they have no gameplay effect.

They are for story writing purposes only, I belive. As Steves said in the above post, he created Aurora primarily to help in writing, so adding some personality traits makes a lot of sense, even if it doesn´t directely influence the game (of course, you can use those traits in-game too, if you roleplay your game. For example, a risk-taker admiral will probably order his fleet to boldly attack, were a cautious admiral will hold back much more).


Edit: Ok, I give up :)

Cool!

I figured that if I started a game creation last night and set up all the tech and ships that you'd pump out a new version of the DB soon.

Feeling a bit twitchy now: both happy and irked....    :)
