Hey, don't forget Star Control 1! Pretty primitive compared to Master of Orion et al., but loads of fun all the same.

true and i did almost over look that one thanks for pointing that out to me Smiley

Galactic Frontiers
http://www.brothersoft.com/games/galactic-frontier.html

Freeware.
Note, Galactic Frontiers is a mac game originally made for System 4 or so, and due to its simplicity, continued to function until system 10.3 (!), but not on intel macs. Lacking a mac, you may need to get a mac emulator. At least 2 free mac emulators exist. Not sure where you're going to get system 5 or 6 without multifinder (those would be my recommended versions for something as simple as this, as they'll let the program completely take over the virtual machine)

 Spaceward Ho!
http://www.deltatao.com/ho/

apparently, this has been maintained, and is available for modern mac, windows, and palm systems. Shareware.

~~~

Pax Imperia: Eminent Domain can be downloaded from cnet (just google it, they're the first download result). They're not an abandonware site so far as I know, which suggests that it's legit to at least try the game. Way back when, the biggest problem I had with it was how slow it ran while designing ships, due to the continuous 3D renders. That... shouldn't be a problem now.

Interesting trivia tidbit - PI:ED was a Blizzard project that they dropped so that they wouldn't be making their own competition for Starcraft, which they hadn't finished yet. It was assigned to another developer to finish.

thanks for the info  Smiley

I watch Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart  every day. Glenn Beck has really went off the deep end and now fancies himself as some sort of prophet.

i think he is in the Mariana Trench right about now (deepest trench in the ocean)

I liked Pax Imperia. It's old, and some mechanics are abusable, but the strategic-layer AI is pretty decent (not so for the combat layer) and the ship designing was fun. And did I say abusable?

So maybe not.

Spaceward Ho! is older still, simple, and addictive. And you can negotiate meaningfully with the AI players through kinagrams. Customizable scenarios.

And if you want something even older and simpler, with ridiculous levels of customizability, try Galactic Frontiers.

where would i get those i (.abandonia ecc?)
