Hi Everyone

I think most of the major changes are done, I think. Now I will be just doing small stuff to improve security and hopefully make everything look better. :)

    Is that the one you talk about?


    Their last message was on 30-06-16, maybe they're still active on their development?

    I changed name to AD Astra, but there are enormous amount of tasks to be done to finnish gameplay on public domain servers. 


    This is the reason why I do not update website. I posting the progress primary on facebook page ..

    Hey Martin

    Thanks for the update, I am sure you know this already but you do know there is another game called Ad Astra (http://www.a-astra.com/)? You won't have any legal issues with making a game with the same title as another?

    Ouch, this might not end well. You guys should've done some research on the name first.

    they might get away with it as it has the word "Online" in the title.

    Not necessarily, I remember the case of Windows vs Lindows (Linux-windows in one platform), MS suited the crap out of the devs because of some sort of name infringement thing and they went bust. Same thing happened to Battlestar: Harbinger (now called Battlevoid: Harbinger). There are more cases like that. They should really look into it.

    My first thought was that the Ad Astra author after a 6 year pause has made his very nice game online instead of going on with pure single player, which is difficult,  but then I was deceived.  This is just an indication that something is amiss. He won't be too happy to know about this name I think, unless he has agreed upon in advance.

    Not sure where the actual state of this game is, it seems stalled and everyone is right there could be a legal issue here with the name as well so who knows if this will ever come to light. I will give this game a for more months and move it to the archive/shipyard section.

    Here is the site if any one is interested:
