Image Description, by far_colony

This is a screenshot from my pre-alpha project Far Colony, a game of space exploration and colonization in the 23th century. The screen shows the user interface with the main view in opengl which contains the orbital objects of the current planetary system and the selected planetoid object at the center. To the left there's the main information panel. This game is made with Delphi and GLScene for all the opengl parts. It uses for all star systems the data calculated by a generator created also in delphi, the result of a work based on variable sources as the old software accrete for example.

The game will be freeware but no download is available for the moment until a playable beta is out. All the code and graphics are made by myself except for the textures of the planets who comes from various sources.

You can visit Far Colony site at for the english version and for the french version.
