I can't resist from posting this, and just want to tell developers and game designers that they did such a great work with this game, please know if you ever release Distant worlds 2, and if the price will be more than 100$ then I will be the first to buy this game, because it is worth it every cent spent.
I'm 4x fanatic and there is no 4x game I didn't play, including newest ones: polaris sector, stellaris, Civilization, endless space and so on..
Obviously these game produces are focusing so much on graphics trying to make their games nice and shiny, but they all only partially implement the most important aspects of 4x games and that is, complexity, depth, randomness, reality and configurability.
Sacrificing graphics for above "aspects" to keep good performance is what makes this game the best 4x ever!
Thank you for such a great game!
Oh forgot to say something about the AI.
the AI, is very good (excluding ship design, which is job for a player anyway), the only one game that matches this AI to some extent is the one from polaris sector.
for all other 4x games I feel free to say the AI more or less sucks in almost all areas.
