This is a testing, im trying to beat my previous record. check out 20.368 ships test from beta 3.

+ means there are more, but the number you see is whats at the current system when the screen is taken.


10,543+



16,883+






27,388













32,029+










41,000+
no images

NOTE:
- No need to mod any files.
- with the 10k+ its recommended that you set your graphics really low and work your way up from there.
- It can also be a good idea to pause the games ASAP and press ctrl+shift+z to gain better FPS.
- expect long load times of 5-10min
- not recommended for 133mhz PCs

I count to one, Darkness blots out the sun.
I count to two and I miss you.
I count to three, I still can't see.
I count to four, I can't take anymore.
I count to five...and Im still alive.
I count to six, I realize there are many things I need to fix.
I count to seven, although it feels like eleven.
I count to eight and then I sit up straight.
I count to nine, I still have a lot of time.
I count to ten and then I count all over again.

This is not my poem, I just dragged it off the Internet. I never liked the "300" movie hardly at all, so I needed another quote about the sun going out to show how very much I deeply respect the kind of thought process it took to make these pictures. Brilliant! (Although, really, the opposite of brilliance, if you catch my meaning)

This is amazing! It reminds me very much of the Star Trek Voyager episode entitled 'The Swarm' in which Voyager encounters the 'nameless' race which lives in billions of little ships! Never thought I'd see it in a game

Has anyone seen that ep / knows the one I mean?

I had this mental picture of Johnny Cash singing "I fell in.. to a burnin' ring of fire..."

This is awesome fun, multianna.

P.S. what would be hilarious is an MP match where 10000+ frigates take on 10000+ frigates all one one giant wall of combat. Turn autocombat off, bring them all in, line up the walls, and then turn autocombat on.

I bet the framerate would be rather.. uh.. low.

Wow, I'd hate to be where that fleet is heading.

I can just see the situation:

AI: Lets go attack that human player.

*Multianna switches off ship limit*

Multianna's fleet: We rise in number, we block out the sun.

AI: Eep!



I guess that's why the Vasari military is called the Dark Fleet?

Multianna: "A thousand nations of the Vasari Empire descend upon you! Our Navigators will blot out the sun!"
AI: "Ten we shall fight in the shade!"

Well, I had to say it.

If you want to play the game with as many ships as Multi and get the same experience, print out his screen shots and bind them together in book-like fashion, then turn the pages slowly
