    Nice job, Brian. I've never played DW in this fashion, but now I'm seriously considering it. I've thought of automating everything and locking the view to a single ship and just following it through the game, taking over only in battle. This would simulate the ship "following orders" with me taking the role of tactical officer.

    Still might try that too, but I just love the more grand scale of DW too much to let go of everything.

    Can't wait for the next installment of Captain Rubin.

      Hey, thanks D-Man. Once I read that snipped in the manual, I knew I had to try the game like this, and it was fun!. If Captain Rubin survives to emperor, he'll be doing the grand scale thing too. IF not, I'll start the next game more in that traditional role. :) You should give it a shot though, being a tactical officer, I think you'd like it. :)

    Just re-iterating what D-Man77 said: cool, creative idea and really nice writeup.

    Distant Worlds is one of the top space 4x games out there right now. It makes me happy to see people write about it.

      Thank you very much, and welcome! I'm glad you enjoyed the article, and stay tuned because I have a few more on the way. And yeah, it looks to be a great game, can't wait to "promote" my character and dive into some of the meatier aspects of it.

    Great write up! I've not tried playing this way, preferring the grander scale of things, but I have spent time really customizing the game setup for different scenarios. At the moment I'm playing a game with multiple human as well as more dominant alien empires, simulating the aftermath of the collapse of a once mighty human-dominated empire and their climb back to ascendancy. After several years of building up my empire and sporadic wars with the Mortalens, my worsening relations with the other human empires lead me to believe the Reunification Wars are about to begin!

    That's the great thing about DW – amazing game play and creative flexibility. The UI for managing all of this is just great IMO. Really looking forward to your next installment!

      Hahaha, thank you. Love the description of the events in your universe. And yeah, the UI is looking pretty impressive so far. :)
