Wow, Blind Mind Studios has just released the entire contents of Star Ruler 2 (including all assets except music) as open source!

https://github.com/BlindMindStudios/StarRuler2-Source

Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/4Xgaming/comme ... en_source/

Edit: This is a fantastic project to view in Visual Studio for aspiring C++ programmers (like myself). They do use a few open source libraries (glew, openAL, curl, zlib) but overall the entire engine is written from the ground up. Makes for excellent learning material!

Really fun game, too. Tried to convince people to get it as much as I could when Wake of the Heralds came... but there was this like... weird veil over that game and people just did not know about it no matter what you did.

It's the only 4X that's come close to scratchin' the SOTS itch that isn't actually SOTS.
Go Hiver or go home!
