Folks, as most of you know, The server technology for Neptune’s Pride is nearly 10 years old now, and was written on a platform called Google App Engine.
Google has stopped supporting the flavor of App Engine that I use, and I will have to do some significant work in the coming years to make sure NP can live forever! (There is no rush, I just know I can’t continue on an unsupported platform)
As I do this server re-write I will want to merge Triton and Proteus so I only have to support one set of game rules moving forward.
If you haven’t played Proteus for a while, I encourage you all to jump into a game and refresh your memory, then think about what you would like me to do to Proteus to make it the perfect version of NP.
- Are ships created too fast making it too difficult to attack?
- Do the spying rules erode tech advantages too much?
- Is the escalating cost of carriers annoying, perhaps you would you prefer a daily upkeep deducted from production?
I’ll also be asking you all to join me in some play test games using the new rules in the coming months. This is your chance to get your favorite feature included!
