Aurora 2 was never a Steve project, it was a community project.  The C# project is all Steve.  He started it last year and seems to be making steady progress on it. 

Apologies JH, you are correct, Aurora 2 was something that Steve started discussing in 2010. 

The C# section I linked earlier is a totally new topic that was started in 2016.  But there are lots of posts from Steve, including from this year.

Watched Burnt last night... not bad but my wife was not impressed... to be honest this song over the final credits was probably the best thing about the movie....

This is one of the many UK programs I enjoy watching. I caught this for a brief time early last year and was fascinated by it because of how the legal system works (and doesn't work) in cases of re-possession in the UK. Netflix added the first two seasons recently though I think this is still going strong in the UK and is on series 6 or 7 by now.

I'm not seeing a Vassal module for Ultra, but there may be one out there.

Thanks OJ!
Iíll take a look.
Do you think it would work well as Play by Forum? Or is there an electronic version around (VASSAL or such)?

OJ could you link StarFire please? There seem to be lots of games called that. :)

There are a few different verions.  I would lean more toward Ultra, which seems to be a combo of 4x and tactical game.

Steve is working a completely revamped Aurora, written in C#.  He's been providing updates with screenshots, and has been making design changes.

Aurora 2 has been in the works for years. Development is at a slow crawl, if not on hold for the moment. No telling when it will be finished. I wish Steve would snake this a paid project and quit his day job, but I know his preference is to keep it as a hobby, instead of work. He's made no promises to anybody because he has accepted no money and I believe he likes it that way.

I haven't looked closely at star fire, but I know it's Steve's primary inspiration for Aurora.
