SPace EXploration game

BRIEFING: An outpost has been built on a planet on the edge of our known space in our galaxy...

MISSION: To develop the outpost into a thriving colony, launch explorations into the unknown space, and find and develope more outposts on newly discovered planets...

INTERFACE: Your control COM panel lets you view and command a selected:
- PLANET: available resources are shown in real time.... commands are available to build more “factories” that produce more resources (ore/fuel) or to build spaceships.
- SPACESHIP: remaining fuel is shown... commands allow you to stop/start a spaceship, and to alter its flight direction

DEBRIEFING: If you fail your mission, you will be decommissioned... if you succeed you will open up this entire quadrant of our galaxy and make it safe for populations and businesses to further develope this part of our galaxy... good luck :)

Cursor control:
The cursor selects the position where you may view things or do things..
ARROW KEYS move the cursor
(B) to view things
(A) action, to do things.. shows a COM panel when available

COMmand panel for Planets
Gives stats and control of selected planet...
F: = the number of factories, ore/fuel
R: = amount of resources, ore/fuel
BF: = will build a factory if resources available
BS: = will build a spaceship if resources available
EXIT: exists command

EXPlorer = very small, fuel efficient, explores unexplored space
.... explorer ships are “disposable” and are abandoned once fuel runs out
TRAnsport = very large, carries everything needed to build an outpost on a new planet
... transporter ships permanently land on a planet and become part of the outpost
BATtleship = medium sized, uses lots of fuel, attacks and defends from enemies
... battle ships remain active unless destroyed ... they may refuel at home planets or at a quasar

Things in space......
...dual, or gaseous, neither can be colonized
... large/rocky, can be colonized with an outpost
Quasars : can refuel Battle Spaceships
Starfalls: wormholes that transport ships
Asteroid Fields: will destroy any spaceship

V 0.002 (B) button gives info of map where pointer is at...
V 0.003 overhauled, and added command screen
V 0.0004 working on COM menus

Need to do.... get commands on COM panel functional..
