Another project that our forum users were allowed to follow in this thread is Space Nerds in Space:
So this game (when it becomes a game) is very much inspired by Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator
See: artemis.eochu.com The idea is you have a game which is played much as the actors in the Star Trek TV series played their roles on the bridge of the Starship Enterprise. There are a number of "stations": Navigation, Weapons, Science, Communications, etc. and each player assumes that role. Each station has it's own laptop or other computer which communicates via network to a central server which simulates the game universe. So it's kind of a cooperative multiplayer network game... No reason not to have multiple teams in multiple starships inhabiting the same server/universe either cooperating or doing battle.
Mine is different than Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator in that it is:
Probably uglier (lol).
Probably more scalable (yay vector graphics.)
Not even close to finished.
It will probably be a while until I'm in a room with enough Linux users to test play this game but when the time comes, I shall be prepared!
