So, apparently I do remember my password here. Hi. I've been a player of SE4 since... uh... 2002? 2003? Fuck if I can remember; somewhere around there. I played SE5 when it came out and a couple of times since, and mostly just gone back to SE4. I took the Eclipse Mod and customized the hell out of it and it became basically the only way I ever play SE4 anymore.

Years ago, I decided that I wanted to make a clone of SE4 so that I didn't have to deal with the silly bugs and limitations of SE4, but could still play the game I loved so much. I actually got as far as parsing the data files, but it doesn't look like you're having any trouble with that yourselves. Wink

I happened to be thinking to myself, "Hmm, I wonder if SE4 ever went open-source or something like that" and instead I found this. This is... incredible. I'm downloading the latest release now. I'm also checking out the source code. Is there a list of features that are currently incomplete anywhere? Bugs that need fixed? Things that need to be implemented before games can be played to completion? If not, I guess I'll just start reading the source and see what's going on.

The mere fact that this exists is awesome; thank you to everybody involved for your efforts.

Glad you appreciate this! Very Happy

So, things that need to be done... well, there is an issue tracker over at Bitbucket!

That's no space station - it's a spreadsheet!
