Deneb 4X background and player guide part 1
You are the ruler of a planet that has just achieved faster then light travel. Your goal is to expand your influence throughout the quadrant and become the ruler of a vast Empire........ The only problem is that several other races have the same idea........ and some of them got there first......
The first step in a new game is to select your race. In version 0.1.1.1 there are three races to choose from. The choice you make has no bearing on what races your opponents will be.
Humans are generalists. They get are good at Diplomacy and pretty average at everything else.
Robotic races are not as imaginative as humans, can survive on a larger variety of worlds, need no food, and have to build more robots to expand their population.
Sillicoid races have total immunity to a bio-weapons. They can survive anywhere there is atmosphere to breath (no colony domes are needed if there is an atmosphere of any kind).
Other races that will be added: The Kreenakh, who are a Cat-like race based loosely on Larry Niven's Kzin and the Orions created by David Weber and Steve White. Other possibilities are the Psilons from Master of Orion, and the Goa'uld from Stargate SG1. Each race may have several sub-categories for the computer to play. For example, one based loosely on the Empire from Star Wars, the Federation of Planets from Star Trek, and the Solar Emperium from Perry Rhodan. (for those nor familiar with Perry Rhodan go to http://www.perry-rhodan.us/
) Suggestions on other races I could include are very welcome.

Sigh......... vacation time is over....... back to work on Deneb 4 this weekend. I have DL'ed AM 4.6.0 Beta but I am not going to install it yet. I have a "new" hard drive to install first that will almost double my storage and I will have to install my OS to it. Sigh.
Oh well, at least this time it was not my OS crashing and taking everything not saved with it.
New pics next Tuesday that I may use in the project.
