We've been busy doing some Social Media this week in addition to working on the game. We've had a couple of media bloggers give us a follow and mention that they are keeping on eye on this game as it goes to Kickstarter. We're probably going to get a couple interviews before we launch. Pretty exciting, and also adds some pressure to get a video and kickstarter up!
With resolved a few critical issues this week involving combat and production and we also changed out a few images that were still placeholders from the internet with ones that are open and free to use, only one or two had ever snuck onto our screenshots page. With that out of the way we started cleaning up a lot of the pages under the Viewscreen tab. The viewscreen shows the planets and the galaxy and allows you to zoom in down into a city or location. As you do the screen overlays information over the planets, cities etc. depending on which sub tab you have selected. The sub tabs are Overview, Resources, Industry, Demand, Military.

Each sub tab overlays its own set of information, Resource tabs shows small icons across the planet or system representing all the resources for example. Military shows icons representing all military units and their direction of movement. When you zoom in all the way to a location the viewscreen display grids of information appropriate to the sub tab you're on. For example, Industry sub tab will display grids with all the structures and standing product for you and anyone else at that location. The demand sub tab shows a grid of all the buys and sells from everyone at that location in the last 100 turns. The Overview sub tabs shows several grids that represent Events, government leaders as well as a broad summary of the other sub tabs information.

The view screen and its sub tabs are the best way to get an idea of where everyone's structures and military units are as well as what's going on at the cities, planets and star systems. These screen are now working and looking 10x better than before. We're probably going to move on to the big list item of Events which includes the voting system that elects players to become government rulers

The interface is very clean and looks great. Love the icons, color scheme and art too (especially planet art). The art in the factory window is a very nice touch. Everything is super professional looking.
