Re: [WIP] Solaris (a FreeSpace Open Total Conversion)
Can you give an estimate how many planets/stars have been colonised/belong to each faction? Just something rough like 10^X would be sufficient.

Re: [WIP] Solaris (a FreeSpace Open Total Conversion)
Colonisation efforts have trickled along pre-existing space folds ("hyperspace lanes") due to vast energy savings compared to folding space manually. As a result the larger factions tend to only have ~10^2 systems with a percentage of those being colonised. The smallest nations are single system only.

Dekker: would having a Space Blighty change things?

Possibly.  But it all depends on the circumstances, I'm normally earth before all else, except in BP where I'm more tev than buntu which surprises me.   

I do like a rich narrative,  and I'm looking forward to reading up on this.   #britainendures

I follow your YouTube channel and saw the trailer when it first went up,  I'm sure I commented but just in case it slipped though cracks, your hyperspace effects.    I like them :nod:.

"One People. One Future."

The Sinarus Combine is a Terran Great Power.

The Sinarus Combine rose from the ashes of the Sol Combine, the powerful administrative hub of Terran space. Economic and ecological collapse at the end of the Great War led to the replacement of Sol's government with a new capital in the Sinarus system. For the first time in human history, Earth had lost her place at the zenith of Terran administration and culture.

The following years were dark times for Combine citizens. The Sinarus government inherited a small but densely populated territory dependent on imports from outlying systems - systems now under Federation control. The loss of Earth's infrastructure and much of her population had also shattered the once-proud nation. The pragmatic but totalitarian ruling government took drastic action - entire swathes of the population were mobilised into rebuilding the economy. Power was concentrated at the upper echelons of the single-party government with severely curtailed political and social freedoms for its citizens. The nation's citizenry committed itself to this gargantuan task, firm in the belief that this was a necessary sacrifice to ensure a future for generations to come.

As a result, Combine leadership expects absolute loyalty to the state, including compulsory military service and working in a chosen area of a socially useful occupation. In return, Combine citizens have the right to comprehensive state welfare, housing and education.



As the economy recovered, the Sinarus Combine star fleet benefited from an extensive modernisation program. Heavily-armed warships are designed with less specialised roles than Federation equivalents with an emphasis on flexibility of movement and independent operations. The Combine fleet promotes a "first strike" doctrine, emphasising speed and firepower over durability and combat endurance. As such, Combine warships are among the most heavily armed of the Great Powers, making extensive use of Javelin anti-ship missiles.

Sounds a bit like "Space Stalinism, but with positives" ... I am going to enjoy watching it burn :D

Nice nice. :nod: Mind adding some timeline with a handful of dates or so? I find them quite useful in original projects.

"Sinarus" = Chinese+Russian?

Re: [WIP] Solaris (a FreeSpace Open Total Conversion)
Correct! (well, roughly!)

Earth was not yet unified as a single government when hyperspace was discovered. Space nations can be roughly analogised to Earth nations depending on the predominant culture that colonised that area of space.

And now you know the analogues of the other powers :)

So then the romanic family of languages is spoken in the remaining Great Power?

Not sure what the Romanic languages are but names and places are latinised for convenience. Different language groups still use their own language but use English as standard

That's incredible! Very hyped! Are the models originals?? I can't understand what they are saying at the end of the intro on my phone.  :(

Maybe because I blundered with translation, "romanic" is out of use in english - I was referring to Romance Languages.
Actually, I was just try to find out if the name "Alban Commonwealth" might go back to Latin (see the adjective "albus")
