Please get the newest zip from

New features:

In order to help with the speed of the rendering I am starting to implement some options for the users.

All of these can be found under the Map Menu on the menu bar.

The Details sub menu allows you to remove the stars from the view which speeds up stuff alot.

also i fine tuned how it draws ships and it should be faster becuz of that too.

lastly i added a low or high detail button. eventually each ship will have a high detail (current draw) and a low detail one that can be toggled using this option. the only ship ive done it to is the PLANET object, for now the other ships just go to a dot, so i wouldnt recommend using the LOW detail until i get the low versions of the other ships out.

Some other things i did

When u log in and the the turn is currently being run, you will be told so and informed that no updates from you or any updates from the server will be gotten until the turn has finished processing. youll be able to login and see your ships as of the last turn but wont see the updates as they happen. this was going to be a bandwidth problems since someone sitting there refreshing during the end turn would eat up alot of bandwidth. sorry.

ill be sending out a new zip sometime tommorrow with low detail versions of the ISD MFRG and TF.

Email me with questions.
