"Find something else to do with your time"

July 18, 2013  |  By OldGameMan

 |  Version: Starport: Galactic Empires 1.0

Pros

Aaron Humter, owner, operator, programer, server admin, manager, and moderator. One guy to do it all and he tries to be responsive to users needs but if a group of people want something changed and they complain, well you are out of luck unless you are in that majority.

Most if not all of the good reviews on this site were bought and paid for with in game tokens, that cost irl cash. see this link... http://www.starportgame.com/sgeforum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=19930

Cons

Antiquated graphics (16 colors). Could be pro for reduced usage of computer resources but it doesn't show.

2d sprite game

Aaron does lots of changes trying to keep the pitiful few users happy, but when he does make these changes, he sometimes does not tell anyone or he makes changes to the system or program that have adverse effects on game play. Sometimes these changes will cost the users needless hours of fixing their colonies after he fixes his fix.

I don't think Aaron even knows what version control is and his attitude when he does mess things up is flippant (dismissive).

Also, this game suffers from such poor performance that you will die from lag or loss and you can be the only one on a server so defenitly not caused by an over abundance of users.

He has been known to ban people just because.

He has been known to take sides on in game conflicts.

And the worst thing is, you can put 1000's of hours into the game, and another player(s) or he can come along and take it from u.

Summary

Old, just old.

2d

what worked yesterday, may not work today.

good luck on getting a rollback of any kind

Don't get me wrong, I do still play it, but only because I have put thousands of hours into it and because I have a few in game friends there still. Well those who have not rage quit due to how bad the game play can be or those who just quit in disgust. Sometimes the changes that are made to the game play make you wonder if you have entered the twlight zone or something.

Looking for another game to waste my time on and I suggest to you to just move along, don't waste your bandwidth, nothing to see here. :)
