This could be interesting:

Judging from some of the screenshots, it looks like this new game is quite similar to our idea for a Civ 5 mod in space:

This might make our idea much easier Smile

Hopefully the SDK will be fairly simple to use.

Also, I'm kind of itching for us to play some Civ 5, I think I'm going to go create/bump a thread.

The bit of starships I'm interested in is the connectivity with Beyond Earth (Which I'm still yet to buy).

Speaking of does anyone who plays Beyond Earth know if it'd be suitable for a lightweight THEA mod? EDIT: I looked into it. Apparently it's a bit of a buggy mess in some ways. :S

Knowing Firaxis it'll be the same engine as either Civ or Xcom, both of which I believe are easily moddable.

I'd better reinstall it then. (And the MP compatible better UI Mod) I've been binging on EU4 and Vic2.
