Starships Unlimited v3

Product Info

Heroic Starship Combat and Galactic Conquest!

Unlike many other games of galactic exploration, conquest, economics and diplomacy, Starships Unlimited v3 focuses on a small number of unique starships, each with different crew mixes and different technologies.  These ships and their crews are the heroes of this science fiction epic, boldly exploring the unknown, dealing with alien races and helping your people expand to new worlds.

Outfit your ships with the latest technology and explore the galaxy, conduct diplomacy and espionage,  raid your rivals' trade routes or invade their planets.  The stars are the limit!

Starships Unlimited v3 will be familiar to fans of the original, but with significant improvements.  For starters, exploration has been expanded to four ages of exploration rather than one, with planets revealing more of their secrets as your ability to explore them improves.  The focus of exploration is now more peaceful and scientific and allows all races to eventually reach new technology ages through exploration and diligent research.  Espionage now includes different types of spies and additional missions, while making the process of recruiting and monitoring your spies easier to manage.  New technologies abound as well, including new freighter and colony ship types, larger starships, deathray weapons, hyper drive and defensive fighter flak.  Finances are now more challenging and based on skilled labor costs and games can now be limited to a range of technological ages.</p> <p>Finally, the user interface and graphics have been revamped and the computer opponents have been made more challenging, including more possible skill level settings so that you can adjust them to your desired difficulty.
