I am another of those weird freaks who likes to do computer programming for fun Shocked and for a while I've wanted to make a stars! clone (as I only had a shareware version).

I'll get to it very soon, but I need any info that you can give on the inner workings of stars! so that I can get a feel for the algorithms used.

Thanks for the help in advance, and watch this space! I'll keep you posted! Very Happy

Well, you can start by reading most threads in this very Forum. Sherlock

Then go to the "Must Know" Forum. It's mercifully short. Twisted Evil

Then gobble up the Academy. Not everything there relates to the guts of the game, but a lot of threads do. Whip

Then you'll only be left with the PRT-specific Forums and good ole rec.games.computer.stars, where some gems about algorithms can still be found.

IIRC, the Starsfaq still exists in some form, somewhere. Rolling Eyes

Then there's Gible's Wiki...

... and others I forget... Embarassed

Good luck! Very Happy



So many Stars, so few Missiles!

In space no one can hear you scheme! Deal

Thank you! First of all, I've got to remember how to use the language - I had to stop programming during my A levels, but now I'm back with a vengeance!
