Unboxing and Tabletop Simulator

Updated: Nov 27, 2020

At the moment I am concentrating on enhancing and clarifying the rulebook, as well as finalizing the second part of the play tester videos on the Constellation Module. The final and complete basic module, Solar System Module, will be explained while using Tabletop Simulator on Steam. The main reason is a smoother screen capture while running the game for the explanation. Tabletopia on web browser while editing, or capturing the video, demands a lot of processing power.


Unboxing Master Models

We are excited to present you with this first real unboxing video. It is a rather extensive unboxing, so feel free to skip some bits. The most detailed images are found in the last 1/3th of the film after the actual unboxing.

Follow the link for detailed pictures of the master models on Board Game Geek.


Tabletop Simulator (TTS)

As promised, I have made a TTS-version of the game.

The biggest reason for adding a TTS-version was the ability to script automated procedures, especially in the Solar System Module. I am still looking for the way to code an automation for the planet movement phase by using just a button at the end of each turn.

I am summarizing the pros and cons of both Tabletopia and Tabletop Simulator.

  • only need web browser, no installation

  • only the most important interactions available

Cons
