Re: Game PC System Specs

Thanks for the hardware recommendations! I'll definitely keep them in mind.

As a matter of fact, the upgrade/replacement probably won't happen until summertime, so hopefully supply issues will be better by then. :)

Re: When can we expect some news?

I was finally able to complete the update to the forums. The upgrade comes with many benefits including responsive web design. If you find any issues please let me know. We now also have a dedicated section for Horizon 2, with a section for main discussions and another for Design specific topics. H...

Re: When can we expect some news?

Appreciate the update, Raf. I understand that you're probably not ready to announce whether the game is releasing in 2021, but it at least sounds like you can now see the light at the end of the tunnel, which is good to hear.

Looking forward to the website changes, and future info!

Re: When can we expect some news?

I'm curious about the game's progress as well. Do you think you'll be releasing this year, Zaimat, or will we be waiting a good while yet?

Re: Trade in Horizon 2?

Can trade routes be attacked at all? Commerce raiding obviously happens quite a bit in wartime, and I've always appreciated the few games that manage to represent this in some fashion. There is also a galactic market which dictates and displays resource prices based on supply/demand and the ability ...

Re: When can we expect some news?

The current largest map preset is for 240 stars (with up to 10 planets per system). Higher number of stars are possible (up to 500 or even 1000) but there are performance and gameplay ramifications. So we only want to focus on the current preset targets, at least for the launch version. Nice! I lov...

Re: When can we expect some news?

Thanks for the update/info, Zaimat . It's honestly good to know work continues, as well as what you've (more specifically) been working on. :) Kind of a random question, but do you have any plan/idea for how large the maps in Horizon 2 will be? Also, will all the races/empires come "pre-made&qu...

Re: When can we expect some news?

Any updates on this? While I admittedly didn't get into Horizon like Anguille did (cheers, mate!), there are a lot of things I like about the game, and am definitely looking forward to the sequel.

Re: Donate to Build the Autobots a Moonbase!

I like how Armada handled it, it was called Bureaucracy (which sounds nicer and better than corruption, but has the same effect). It reduced popularity (which was important in that game, but since Horizon doesn't have an analogue at the moment I will skip this one), and reduced tax revenue. Now exp...

Re: Donate to Build the Autobots a Moonbase!

What about implementing some sort of "Corruption" or "Bureaucracy" mechanic that eats an increasing percentage of your income the larger your population grows (up to a point of course)? A number of strategy games have this feature (or something similar) already, and it works fair...

Re: Pay to Win! (Not what you might think.)

Given the game's alpha state, I expect the AI will be pretty rudimentary for some time yet. Glad they're already working on and improving it, though!

Re: Horizon to be available on Steam Early Access Games

Cool news! I don't suppose you can share with us how much it's going to sell at for this early access?
