Stargate Domination will be a single-player game based on the Stargate SG-1 series.
Later on - if I get some good reactions - I'll try to make it multi-player.
It will also be a turn-based game, but all turns will be played at the same time.
So as a player you choose a particular action by anticipating what your enemy is planning to do.
When pressing the PLAY-button all enemies will play exactly one action in a consecutive order.
This game will be written in Java and available for download on this site.
The purpose of the game is to conquer the entire Stargate universe. In that universe 6 races exist that each have a different way to see things. This focus can be interpreted as some kind of special ability with regard to the other races.
- Asgard - Research:
The Asgard are about 1 meter in height, with grayish skin tones, small skinny limbs, large heads and black eyes. They're feared because of their superior technology and firepower, rather than their sheer numbers. The Asgard are so advanced because of their RESEARCH.
They will be able to faster research new and advanced technologies including vessels.
- Goa'uld - Worship:
The Goa'uld are serpent parasites ('snakes') that forcibly take human hosts, and possess a thirst for power and WORSHIP. They enslave worlds, using their inhabitants as hosts, soldiers, miners and personal slaves.
The more followers the Goa'uld have, the more powerful they are.
- Free Jaffa - Freedom:
The Free Jaffa are the Jaffa who don't serve the Goa'uld anymore, and who gained their FREEDOM back. They were genetically altered to incubate a Goa'uld symbiote, which gives the Jaffa a longer life and increased strength. It acts as the Jaffa's immune system.
The Free Jaffa can offer freedom to other Jaffa in service with the Goa'uld greatly reducing their army.
- Ori - Religion:
The Ori are a race of ascended beings who manifest themselves in a far galaxy. They claim to be gods and the creators of all humanity. They use their knowledge as justification for praise and worship. The Ori are served by those who follow their RELIGION, called 'Origin'.
Depending on the number of planets the Ori own, they will be able to quickly enlarge their army and build new ships.
- Replicators - Self Replication:
The Replicators are technologically advanced 'bugs', programmed by their creators with only one objective: SELF REPLICATION. Anything and everything that interferes with this plan of infestation, annihilation and duplication is immediately at risk.
The population of Replicator worlds will grow faster compared to other planets.
- Tau'ri (Humans) - Exploration:
Originating from the planet Earth, the Tau'ri unlocked the secrets of the Stargate not so long ago and they begun to EXPLORE the universe. The SG-teams have found lots of human cultures and are quickly taking their place on the galactic landscape.
The Tau'ri will have a higher success rate in taking other worlds because they have skilled SG-teams.
Of course more races exist however I chose those 6 because they're the main players in the Stargate SG-1 series.
You can pick 1 of them to play with and the other 5 will be played by the computer.
I'll try to make it as realistic as possible by implementing some fair AI based on the events in the Stargate SG-1 series.
In the center of the game, a star map with all planets and vessels will be visible to you. This universe comprises 25 planets of which a single one will be your homeworld. Because each race has its own homeworld, the other 19 planets are considered unknown territory. You can travel to other planets by Stargate or by vessel.
To conquer other planets a Command Center will be at your disposal. This allows you to plan a certain action. There's also a Research Lab to invent or upgrade new technology and vessels. Thanks to Diplomacy, alliances can be made and it will also be possible to invent new technology together with other races.
