Come to think of it, Iím reminded that I used to play as the Bulrathi in MOO and MOO 2.

I always liked playing the Psilons.

My goal was to tech up enough to put graviton beams on fighters and build swarms of them. That would typically take me to late game. Would still have to build some capital ships when repulsor beams came into play.

Since the conversion shifted to MOO, I highly recommend Remnants of the Precursors.  Best of all, it's free.

Not so sure. Most sequels mess up what made the original good. It took DW several expansions to get it right the first time. I'd feel better about a new expansion than a whole new DW2.

They couldnít just expand it. Needs a new engine to run on modern systems.

I hope it's good. DW is my top one, two or three space empire games.

I didn't really give the Dev Diary #3 a good full read until just now.  DW2 is going to be beautiful.  Can't wait...

Love the look of those ships. Very naval in character.
