"micromanage!" "LIKE A BOSS"

This seems amazing. And it's about as "indie" as it gets. I've seen their call for developers on website such as onrpg.com and mmohut.com.

The idea is amazing. And I love the "starjack" part. It seems that those are your private, instanced, areas where you can build your armies and gather your own resources and then go out into the actual universe and battle it out? Or maybe I've got it all wrong.

At any rate, I'm keeping my eye on this one. And as soon as the registration opens up will be trying it out for sure.

Yay for indie!

@Netu you got it right.

You "starjack" (capture) systems to move them to your backline. Those systems then become private and no one can touch them.

@Jorune That sounds *awesome!* I am very excited for this. Very excited indeed.

I hope the actual gameplay is fun, as the theory of it all sounds fantastic!

The registration is unavailable. Would be smart to tell us such stuff, wouldn't it?

@PaterFrog Works for me.

Can't use the link in the email, just sign in the site and use the activation code from the email.

@PaterFrog

Might be smarter to confirm it isn't just you having the problem, as it works fine.

I've been in, and am now in a number of these new MMORTS's alphas/beats, so far no one has managed to get it right. I'm not at all sure it's even possible to mix the 2 genre's mmo/rts successfully but will give this one a look. At least it's a sci/fi! So far almost everything is fantasy, or medieval.... Not that there's anything wrong with either.... But I do think people would like something else also... Yes go indie! As Princess Leia so rightly put it "you're my only hope!"

I also had problems registering at first. Had to resend my activation code and it worked. However, now I can't download the game.

"You do not have access to view this tab within the portal."

@zorovriend

If you haven't already seen it, Infinity put up a possible fix for some people:

I successfully registered but hotmail sent my confirmation email straight to my junk folder. Had to fish it out but other than that, no issues.

Even though it's over ten years old, Shattered Galaxy still seems to have come the closest to a workable MMORTS formula I've seen.
