Welcome to the Starport: Galactic Empires Blog


Welcome to the Starport: Galactic Empires developer blog.

It’s so exciting to be in the field of software development right now, and to have a live program that people use every day! For seven years it was my dream to create an online space game. We opened Starport to the public in 2004 as a free game with optional payments for virtual items. It was popular enough to keep us going and so we’ve been upgrading the software and servicing the community of players ever since.

This blog will cover what direction the Starport game service is going and what the developers are working on. Stay tuned for weekly updates and subscribe to the rss feed for up-to-the-minute news on upcoming game-play features, new galaxies, and other interesting details from the perspective of the developers.

Right now we have a talented new artist named Marcela Roberts working on the player portraits. She is doing a great job. I’m optimizing some code for better performance. CaffCoder is working on an option to receive real email from starport servers when your character receives mail in the game.
