Still here. Still working. I think this game is actually getting close to a "pre-release" state (yea.. haven't said THAT before...). I'm going to try and divert focus to ship design and overall game/scenario design and away from the canon for a bit, as that needs the most work.

Well, it would appear my updates as of late have turned out to be quite more extensive than I had originally planned. There have been quite a few additions to the Warfleet cannon, some overhauls of the designs, and more experimentation with the Starmada system. I rather like where it's heading now!

Close! But not quite
Working on some more of Warfleet's history. Probably going to change some of the cannon to better fit with the new direction I'm taking the game.

Minor updates to the Warfleet section. I have a direction now for the revision of the game and like where it is heading.

I'm currently considering a full rewrite of Warship. The current version is large, clunky, and will never be finished as a practical game. I was considering abandoning the project completely, but upon reflection I already have a huge chunk of background (including something around 60 ship designs) invested in the concept, so I think I might try and salvage it instead.
Among other things, cheif priority for salvage will be to transition the game into a much faster playing tabletop-minitures-style game from its current overly complex hex-grid based system (or significantly overhauling the hex-grid system). I like the story, I like the background and universe, and I like the concepts.. it just doesn't work well as a playable game as it has gotten overly complex, despite the simplified V4 manual rewrite.
The other task I'm working on is overhauling all of the LEGO models used to create the starships in the game. The originals are decent but they have some building flaws (as in they're not all physically buildable using LEGO). The newer models look a little better and will fit with the Warfleet canon better.
I will be looking into this in the future.

Added a few more minor updates to the Other Projects section. Nothing major.

Still not dead!
I've been pittering away at a couple of my game projects, slowly adding things here and there. I recently picked up Railways of the World and it gave me inspiration to work on my 'Rails' project. I've actually started prototyping components for it.
I figure by this time 'Warfleet', as it sits, is nearly a dead project. It's been a very long time since I've done any meaningful work to it and frankly I just can't see any way to make the current setup work as a good, playable game. I'm not going to abandon the game though -it will undergo an extensive redesign and I'll attempt to streamline it some more, make it faster and more interesting to play, and add some more to the background.

This kind of sucks. For the last little while I've been lacking inspiration to do any work on any of my board OR computer game projects. I'm thinking I need a vacation from work... not sure where to go or what to do though. Maybe somewhere nice and quiet where I can just sit and work on my hobby projects.

I've added a new section for my computer game projects (of which I actually have more than my board game projects... go figure). Nothing in there as of yet but I'll add stuff over time.

-Small update. Adding a new section to the website for rules modifications/house rules I make for published board games. This will include minor changes or complete re-works for different games.
