Hi! I'm sorry to hear that, though I don't test on 32 bit, it should (tm) still work. What platform are you on? Windows? Are you able to run it in a terminal to see the printouts you get there?

Anything for a fellow linux user! It's developed on linux so it should work, not really sure what's up with the jar file, only tried it on Windows, and probably wine wine :) ... But since it seems you're familiar with a shell, I've just uploaded the class file for you:

I will do my best to process: lovelyearth.bmp for you

Hi! More advanced diplomacy like relationship bars etc will not be in the next release, as this is already in beta on Android (though I am trying to chase down the notorious crash bug so it may take a while). I do want do have more advanced diplomacy in the future, but it's very hard to get it right :)
Truce I'm not so sure about, you think it should trigger automatically after some time? Would it be the same as peace? What would be the point of it? :)
Hi! There are some crashes that are fixed for the next Android update (coming at least to Beta soon). Meanwhile, there is a known crash that happens after the ads go away. Do the crashes coincide with that? If so - buying the IAP to remove the ads may solve the problem :)
Hi! Sounds awesome, maybe some day :) This type of moddability takes a lot of work to implement, and really requires a sizable active community to make it worthwhile. I do not have this many users, so adding this feature now would face a significant risk of basically 0 users :/
I am just implementing support to create your own empire. It's done except for color picking, which I need to do :) Once that is done, I think changing colors of empires is straightforward (except maybe repainting the ships :)).
As for bigger galaxies on PC, yeah maybe, the simulation is much faster now, maybe it's doable.
Good idea, implemented the "No Peace" option :) How can I not when your username references my game?
I'm hoping somebody else will contribute those other maps for me, but if not I'll probably get around to it eventually :)
Hi! Itch does allow you to donate as much as you like, though they take a cut of that. If you would like to donate directly to me, then shoot me an email (email@example.com) and I'll be happy to send you a paypal link :)
Hi, yes you can make your own maps! I created this blog page a while back:
There was some interest, check out some stuff posted here:
Hi! The next update has just gone out to beta testing on Android, and maybe it will be out on beta testing this weekend for PC. This usually means there's around a week or so until it's final, unless of course there are bad bugs, in which case it can take a long time :) Read more about the changelog here:
Hey thanks for the enthusiasm, I love it too, that's why I keep hacking away at it :)
Yeah these are good points :) I don't think ads are a good way to monetize on the PC (are there any examples of this?) - but I could make something like a good old-fashioned time / feature limited demo that people could use to try it out
Hi! You only had to pay 3 total to name an empire, so I'll say with your 5 total you're good to name a dynasty as well :) Just post name here or by email or you prefer and I'll be in the next release
Sorry for the amazingly slow response :) The game is already capped at 60 fps, so it's not going to go completely crazy on a fast platform, it's just that it's slow on a slower platform :) Also there's no real way to use a dt var, as every simulation tick needs to be fully evaluated - or the simulation kind of breaks.
Now what I could do is to stop drawing the frames to screen if framerate drops, that might be more of a professional approach :)
Hi! Yeah I see what you mean. Yes framerate is coupled to game speed, it's not like in most other games where the framerate is just an indication of how pretty the graphics are, it also means how many ticks of the simulation are done every second (excluding things like timelapse).
What I could do is to add a slower slow motion mode to let you play the game more peacefully :) Other than this, try pausing the game a lot, it helps :)
Hi! First off, thanks for your support! :) I think you managed to submit one of them, but not the other? Anyway, just email my username @ gmail.com and I'll hook you up, or just post them here if you're cool with that.
Hey, thanks for the money! I will have lots of fun with it :D
Sorry for the late reply, looks like you managed to submit Ratzki through the system right? If not you, then somebody else did :)
