Supernova 2 Update Adds Ship Customization, Real-Time Turns
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Tycoon Games has released a new update for Supernova 2: Spacwar, its strategy war game set in space. Version 1.0.3 introduces a variety of bug fixes and improvements including a Skirmish mode for those who just want to engage in warfare, a Ship Customization option for building a fleet of the player's own design, A Statistics Screen for tracking successes and failures, and a Real-Time Turns option for those who want the action to keep moving.

More about the update:

“Any existing customer can just redownload the game to get all the new features for free, adhering to our policy of unlimited lifetime free updates. For those people who've tried the previous version but didn't like it for any reason, I encourage them to give it another try, since now it is definitely a different game,” said Riva Celso, designer/programmer of Tycoon Games.

New Features:
Skirmish Mode allows players to focus mainly on the war game: all technologies are known and unlimited resources and money to build fleets directly on startup are made available to the players. This is perfect for those players who want to enjoy only the war game.
Ship Customization is a new screen where gamers are able to create custom ship blueprints or modify an existing one: each device now requires a certain amount of space and energy, but the possibilities for custom combinations are endless.
Statistics Screen enables the player to see various, interesting statistics about the current game like battles win/lost, total ship killed/lost, etc.
Real-Time Turns is an option within the game macromanagement, so the time advances automatically without having to end each turn manually.  Players can  set their own speed using the plus and minus keys to change game speeds or press the “P” key to pause/unpause.
