We've gotten most of combat implemented this week and we also have a Battle Reports screen that shows how the battles progressed.

Combat in Barons of the Galaxy happens between turns but they are not resolved instantly. That is, it usually takes several turns for a group of units to destroy another set of units. This gives all sides time to bring in more units, retreat or have other players join the fight on either side. You can for example attack another corporation in Paris and the units will do damage to each over the next several turns at which time another player flies a force to Paris and attacks the same corporation. His forces join yours in the attacks. Likewise the defender can have an ally show up and set there units to defend him and they will join the defense.

The Battle Report shows the two sides of a battle, which can include more than one corporation on either side. The green health bar is how many Hit Points the units have left, the red is how much they took last turn. You can select a set of battle from a particular location and timeframe and then flip through them with a next / prev button to see how the battle unfolded

Another feature we implemented was the ability to select a couple of colors that represent your corporation. Those colors make the colored borders around your units to distinguish them.

We want to do some more beautification of the battle report screen and put in some small graphs and stats as well but so far its functional and looking pretty good

Thanks for your support! Can I ask what part of the game are you excited about, or what feature you are most interested in? =)

Based upon what I have read about your plans so far, I think I am most eager to see how the cooperative/political aspect of the game will work. The idea that the players are going to work together as a community to some extent is very interesting. In the past I played Eve Online, and that aspect of the game was very unique in my experience. I am hopeful that you can create something like it with your game.
