Re: Music

Correct. You can click forward (or right arrow) to play the next track, or click back (left arrow) to play the previous track. It's one of those relatively small QoL features that can have an outsized impact on one's experience whilst playing a game.

Awesome! Leaders/characters can make a game so much more interesting & fun.

Re: Manual

Yeah, I don't imagine we'll ever see physical manuals make a comeback, but I do miss those days. I still have my manuals for Birth of the Federation and the 2000 Reach for the Stars remake/sequel. I *would* still have the manual for my original copy of Imperium Galactica II, if I hadn't lost it -- b...

Re: Galaxy generation

I'm also curious if we'll be able to choose things like galaxy richness (minerals, resources, etc.), the frequency of habitable planets (at least those that don't require expensive terraforming first), frequency of "NPC's", etc.

Re: Music

That's very good to hear. I long ago discovered that the right music/soundtrack can help a lot with a game's atmosphere/immersion factor. (For 4x games, Armada 2526, Birth of the Federation, WH40K: Gladius, and Stellaris are examples that have especially stood out for me.) Horizon 1's soundtrack is ...

Re: When can we expect some news?

Just wondering how you intend to make the galaxy feel "alive". Distant Worlds did a very good job there with plenty of civilian units flying around (similar to Imperium galactica 1) and space monsters etc). So what is your take? I did touch on this a bit in the Trade Topic , but yes you w...

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: 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?

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.
