I didn't realize that was the original voice actress -- that's really cute.

(The first Homeworld was better, anyway.)

That wasn't Heidi Ernest, it was the replacement (Jennifer Graveness). The video is mislabeled.

Ah, too bad. Still a neat inclusion, though.

Also. Torchlight is free. If you haven't heard of it it's basically a Diablo clone, pretty decent, if you like Diablo you'll probably like it.

I'm guessing this is the official 4x Space Civ game thread.

If so, I'd like to wonder if anybody here has played Stardrive.

Also, I'd like to ask if there are any Outsider mods for any 4x game at all?

You guys really need to check out Space Empires IV (SEIV). It is an older game, but very, very good. The most recent edition is Space Empire V, but while prettier, the user interface is rather clunky. Space Empires IV is available as a digital download for about $10. To bad there aren't Loroi and Umaik mods for SEIV...

I swear thats been asked before.
It is still bugged somewhat, but the patches have fixed most of the heavy stuff. It`s much better now.

Age of Wonders III looks like it's coming soon.

For those not in the know, the Age of Wonders series is essentially a continuation of Master of Magic, which was the fantasy analogue to Master of Orion by the same developer (SimTex). Even if the fantasy setting is not your cup of tea, it's one the best examples of turn-based 4X strategy games with both a strategic and a tactical mode (like MOO, XCOM, Jagged Alliance, etc.).

I've been playing a game called Distant Worlds for a while now, it's damn fun if time consuming, though it's real-time rather than turn-based. It's extremely in-depth, but you can have the AI take care of most aspects that you don't want to handle and it'll actually be reasonably competent at it.

Interresting, lately i was caught playing Stardrive.

And as funny as it seem, am kind of going Historian on the game. One of the race that was friendly, suddenly started to spy and steal from me. so i boosted an dying race that was at war with them to cause interference and slow them while i was finishing another war. Now let just hope that this alliance will last, cause they (the helped race) pump ship faster than i am :S

What do you guys think of Stardrive? It looks interesting, but the reviews from May/June mostly indicate that it is buggy and unfinished.

Endless Space also looks good, and got much better reviews. Any experiences to relate?

Well, I haven't bought Stardrive because of the very same reason you mentioned: the reviews and the few guys I know who bought it said it was terrible.
Endless Space on the other hand is rather nice, especially with the expansion. It feels very much like MOO2, with the exception that battles are fought in a rather strange way. You basically have 3 phases in which you can pick a "card" and activate a tactic, abillity, etc... This can be annoying as you have no direct controll over your ships. But if you can look over that, its a good game.

Post Re: Master of Orion 2 (and 4X Games Discussion)
stardrive IS buggy and unfinished, but it does have some good humor in it, interesting ship design, pretty decent strategic conflict, there is also some talk on the forum about switching from realtime to turnbased, and apparently have two different builds running side by side....or was it changing game engine because the current one was too limiting...cant recall, but the game seems like it has potential, just needs a few more years of work at current pacing.

endless space on the other hand is pretty damn good now, and i personally like the card combat system, makes it much easier to fast forward the fights, which can be MANY on a single turn.
