As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around
1am MIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions
. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum
. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Spaceship building games?!?!?!
So, I must be a strange guy. stranger than other internet strange guys because I do not understand why we don't see any Spaceship building games!!!
I mean, sure we see plenty of 4x games where you upgrade components on your ship, or "research" (cough, unlock) ship designs, but nothing where you can actually build something, something that works?
And sorry, minecraft doesn't cut it.
It looks pretty epic sure, but it's hollow and makes me.... bitter!
So, can someone help a brutha out? Am I missing someting in the last decade of gaming that could possibly satisfy my space-architect cravings? Am I the only one in the world who cares and cries about this?!?!
