We are just about ready to release 0.64 which has a lot of small improvements to it from last week’s build as well as a pretty big new feature: The power amplifier. Your engineer can build this onto your power generators to double the resource output of a region.
Now, let’s talk about upcoming changes for the beta.
Early Game Decisions It is important that the game provide players with multiple early game decisions that are viable. Below are some decision m...

What will become 0.63 Greetings! We continue to make rapid progress on all fronts as we head towards BETA. We hope to have the beta ready by November 19. Before then, we’ll have an interim update called 0.63 which will update the balance a bit and allows players to zoom out to 25,000 feet (as seen here). On the performance end, we continue to work towards more frames per second on lower end hardware. We’re making a lot of progress there (enough that we can zoom out wit...
It will reach the public in the next week or so. It has been “signed” by MS so that means it has been tested by their public testers for glitches…no sarcasm, please.
This should be the first major change that the average user who isn't signed up to any advance testing program sees to Windows 10. It marks the first in what's planned to be a more frequent series of updates to the system, replacing the idea of having Service Packs, and even new editions of Windows. – infopacket...
Yesterday was the long-waited big update to Galactic Civilizations III. Version 1.4 added many many AI and UI updates to the game based on months of player feedback.

We’re pretty happy with the response overall. But there is one change I’d like to discuss with you guys: THE WHEEL.

There are a lot of strategies you can employ in Ashes. Being the kind of guy I am I like to play games where I try to exploit them (and then claim I am doing my job by providing design feedback about our games). I’ve done bomber rushes, gone hard into radioactives to try to rush t3 dreadnoughts and skip the lower level ships entirely, I’ve avoided the economy entirely and tried to deathball directly at my opponent’s seed, I’ve engineer rushed to drop defenses ar...

Stardock is pleased to announce that DeskScapes, our program that allows you to animate and customize your desktop wallpapers, released today and is now fully compatible with Windows 10.
DeskScapes gives you the ability to animate and customize the wallpaper on your Windows desktop. You can choose one of the animated wallpapers already included with the program, or use your own WMV files to personalize your desktop. There are some additional features to DeskScapes as well:
Screenshots are hard. What looks good in motion doesn’t necessarily look good standing still.
So what is the hype about Ashes of the Singularity about? These are just giant land ships right?
What the big deal isn’t the detail you can have on a single unit. Homeworld was doing that years ago. What DirectX 12 makes really practical is that you can have thousands of these units in this detail.
Let’s take a look at these two screenshots:

Galactic Civilizations III is one of the first of the “new generation” of natively 64-bit, DirectX 11 games. More importantly, it is both critically acclaimed and a best seller meaning that the hardware requirements of this game, while non-trivial, are not so high as to prevent it from being commercially successful.
We got the Steam hardware results on tens of thousands of Galactic Civilizations III players. Let’s take a look.
So what do they have?
We’ve been working like crazy to improve stability while at the same time adding in lots of new features and UI improvements. The next build, 0.55, is due out next week.
If you haven’t joined the Founder’s Program, it is going to be ending in the next couple weeks. At that point, Founders will start to receive additional keys to give to friends to help build up a proto-multiplayer community.

I love my Surface Pro 3. Windows 10 has transformed it from something I occasionally fiddled with to my primary mobile device (replacing my iPad and MacBook Pro combo for trips).
But it is, by no means, perfect.
The weaknesses of the Surface Pro 3 include:
It is almost 1.8 pounds. That's really too heavy to use as a tablet for an extended period of time.While Windows 10 has greatly improved the issue of it getting hot and the fan blariung, the fact it has a fan means ext...
