Non Windows

I am getting sick of MS pushing Windows 10 on me.

Trying to see how many of my more recent games will run under Linux and/or MacOS. Has anyone tried Polaris Sector?

Lowest specs?

Not what the game officially supports but what you guys have tried, perhaps lower than the official specs?

This is just for fun.

When the next patch arrives I plan on trying it on a couple of older systems, bellow specs.

Re: Why excellent Polaris lost dull Stellaris

I don't have Stellaris and I have barely played Polaris. I am waiting for the next patch for Polaris to try it. I bought Polaris as soon as I found it cause I have always been a supporter of Slitherine developing a 4X in space game, even though this game was not developed in house AFAIK. Stellaris I...

Re: Polaris Sector 1.04a Open Beta

For this version, we decided to put this first iteration of 1.04a out onto a Steam open beta simply because it was on a Friday and it was a lower risk. I know that it's not everyone's cup of tea, but sometimes we have to make that decision. For the next release we'll put up files for both here and ...

Re: Polaris Sector 1.04a Open Beta

Any fix for the crash/not loading of the settings window (the separate program) Hi, It's certainly working for me! Please do give it a try and let us know if you have any issues Thankfully I have the drm-free version of Slitherine and not Steam. Unfortunately that means I can't test the beta patch.

If one manages to capture Spain and thus Gibraltar without losing too much time or materials, the Axis is very close in winning the game.

Buy it soon and then come and play some PBeM games and let me beat you (as you seem to be noobier than I am) ! :)

Be gentle. I almost never play any strategy games or wargames. So, don't worry, you will easily defeat me.
