Solar Vengeance is a game of interstellar conflict and conquest. You assume the role of a Star Lord, seeking to expand their territory after the collapse of the Galactic Empire. The other Star Lords (both human and computer Brain players) have the same idea! To eliminate your enemies you will build fleets of StarShips, and use them to capture independent and enemy StarSystems. Eventually you will capture your enemy Star Lord’s Capital StarSystem, eliminating them from the game. Conquer all of your enemies’ Capitals and you are victorious!
In Solar Vengeance 5, you can program your own Scenarios and computer Brain players in the Microsoft C# language. Use a full-fledged development tool like Visual Studio or SharpDevelop to write the code. When you are satisfied, just drop the source code file into the appropriate folder. SV5 compiles and integrates your code automatically.
The game is in real-time, but the game moves at one-second “impulses” and you can pause at any time. Single and multiplayer over internet.
Some of the tools used to make the game were been released as well by the author…
