Any sci-fi nuts here remember Supreme Commander? And if so, still have the desire to play it?

If so, you're in luck!

I have long considered Supreme Commander the pinnacle of real time strategy gaming. Sure, StarCraft is and was awesome(the first game), but Supreme Commander takes it further with a level of strategic complexity unmatched in any RTS since. And it has pew pew robots--science fiction galore. smile

I discovered a month ago it still lives, with a thriving online community and a user built client to replace the original GPGNet that the game shipped with. Folks are playing games all the time, with stats, replays, ladders, map sharing and more built into the client. I was amazed how easy it was to set up and it is actively being developed, still, with enhancements and tweaks to both the game and the client itself.

Would you like to know more? wink

I'd love to play some of y'all sometime if you're up for it. I play Free For All style games exclusively, winner takes all, kinda like Risk. No teams, no shenanigans, no stacked decks, just four to eight players, themselves alone against the world.

Haven't played it in a while, will take a little retraining to get back into it.

You play Ashes of the Singularity at all?

Ashes of the Singularity is neat, got it on the Humble Monthly, but feels light compared to the options available in SupCom and Planetary Annihilation.

A buddy and I still play Supreme Commander co-op with each other over the internet. We try to take on as many AI as we can.
