To quote him (Zero) I think StarDrive vanilla is a fine game. I'm happy with it. I'll be patching it here and there as my whims take me. If you feel cheated by StarDrive, kindly scroll up to the upper right portion of your browser screen and click the "Logout" button. I don't want to hear it."
So promised features are missing and most likely wont be delivered.
However even without being completely finished, the game is not BAD.
If you just need your small 4x fix you get nicely done graphics, good music and some quite enjoyable game mechanics.
If you can bear with the existing memory leak and lag in late game and dont care about it not being feature complete you might even have a great time.
...and then you might consider to re buy the game in its new incarnation, it has been announced it will be basically redone on a new engine (full price for everyone). Yay?… Expand

A big plus is the helpful community.
Beside the clunky interface and the somewhat sparse documentation, i am fully satisfied.… Expand
