Hi, DSS is an upcoming 4X RTS. Here's is the original announcement from April this year:

 

I am proud to present Deep Space Settlement! DSS is a real-time strategy game focused on empire building and grand-scale space battles. It is in development since February 2011 and is for PC Windows.

Story:
You are part of a multi-generational mission to colonize distant regions of space. Your journey brings you to a star cluster rich in resources and lightly populated. Or so it seems. Your goal is clear: setup a space settlement and thrive. Whether you choose to make allies or conquer through supremacy is up to you.

Features:

  • Build your interstellar empire;
  • Gather resources to power your empire economy;
  • Trade resources between star-systems and players;
  • Customizable ships;
  • Build giant capital ships supported by an armada of smaller, more maneuverable ships;
  • Create huge fleets;
  • Unlock new technologies;
  • Unlock new ship abilities through an XP system;
  • Defend from invaders and conquer new star systems;
  • Single or multiplayer;
  • High modding capabilities.

I am relatively far into development but there are still some features to implement. I hope to hit Alpha this summer

Any comments and/or suggestions are appreciated.

We have opened pre-orders today and so have created a new trailer:


Also, we are trying to get on greenlight as well:


If you like what you see, we'd appreciate you voting for us and following us on steam.

A non-colorblind artist is urgently needed. SoTS2 had terrible color schemes (neon bright red, pink and purple combinations), and these screens don't look any better.

I really like the look of those ships. Part lego, part homeworld. Wish they had a video showing combat though.

I liked the color schemes as well.  I'm pretty sure you will get to have the colors you want on your own ships.

I'm more interested in knowing the scale of the game...  How much space can you control?  Just asteroid fields?  Can you control planets?  Systems?  Sectors?  Galaxies?
