Imagine Earth

Planetary Colonization

Imagine Earth is a real-time planet simulation and a build up strategy game. Your job as a space colony manager is to explore and populate distant planets. Build up thriving and profitable colonies on a global scale and trade resources and goods into space.

Mission Goals Briefing

Expansion & Research

Raise great cities and satisfy their appetite for resources by building power plants, farms and factories. Dig for ideon crystals, pacify riots, research technologies and constructs and maximize your growth while maintaining a healthy ecosystem.

Allies, Threats & Enemies

Get ready to deal with threats like asteroid strikes, twisters, wild fires, volcanoes and rising sea levels. Fend off space raiders and alien investors. Coexist and trade with natives, merchants and hostile colonies.

Capitalist Space Age

In 2048 huge corporations have divided Earth among themselves and exploited its natural resources to a large extent. Now the discovery of ideon crystals allows journeys into space, while technologically and ideologically almost everything remains the same. The laws of the market are being spread into the universe.

Mission Goals BriefingCompetition and Economic Warfare

On each discovered planet a competition for economic dominance breaks out. To expand your colony as fast as possible and overcome your opponents you exploit the freely available fossil resources and minerals. Additional money is provided by selling shares of your colony. Take over opposing companies by buying up their shares.

Trade Resources and Technologies

Merchants and technology traders organize the interplanetary trade and will happily buy all minerals and resources you extract from your territory while selling expensive technologies. The same goes for cooperating colonies and alien tribes that live on some of the planets.

Mission Goals BriefingGrowth vs. Ecocide

You will experience a massive conflict between the profit goals of the interstellar corporations and the need to preserve living conditions for your people. Exhaust emissions and ground pollution impact the global climate as your colony is growing. Increasing temperatures melt down polar caps and your colonies are destroyed by rising sea levels.

Features

  • Global and real-time world experience instead of playing on limited square maps.
  • Fully playable and story based campaign with 7 planets / missions.
  • Freeplay mode with a procedural planet generator for endless worlds and challenges.
  • Competition mode for matches against up to 4 AI corporations per planet.
  • Planet Editor for terraforming, building and customizing individual planets which can be saved and shared.
  • Development of over 30 colony buildings with individual upgrades.
  • Global simulation of local pollution and worldwide emissions.
  • Threats and disasters: Chemical spills, oil slicks, radioactive contamination, wild fires, tornadoes, volcanoes, dying forest and growing deserts, alien and robotic invaders, etc.
  • Melting polar caps will raise sea levels and flood your coasts in case of global warming.

TL;DR

  • Joma Extended & "Healing" for Temples
  • Fusion Reactor
  • Fire Station
  • Money and Tax Balancing
  • New UI for Details on Productivity and Quality of Life
  • Other improvements

Joma Extended & "Healing" for Temples

It's now possible to donate items and resources to other colonies. For now this has only relevance for the missions, but in the near future we will be working on a diplomacy system. We have extended the Joma mission to make use of this feature with respect to the epidemics and Birons. This gives you the chance to take a decision at one point that will have influence to a later part of the mission.

2017 09 22 Cure

The cure spell that is now available in temples neutralizes pathogens that can pose a threat to more complex forms of life on site - in other words, you can use it to heal epidemics.

Fusion Reactor

This new building is introduced in the Rounos mission.

2017 09 22 FusionReactor

The fusion reactor generates thermonuclear energy of nuclear fusion. Lithium is needed as a raw material, which can be extracted from asteroids on most planets. There is only relatively little radioactive waste and the reaction can be aborted safely at any time. The "divertors" upgrade improves binding of impurities from the plasma and reduce maintenance and disposal costs. The "reactor extension" upgrade expands the reactor so that additional energy can be produced. This building most likely will need some additional balancing, since it's the first time a building consumed rare resources.

Fire Station

2017 09 22 FireStation

The fire station is an upgrade for city districts and the logistics center. It ensures that fires in the vicinity are automatically extinguished by a drone. In addition, the probability of forest and building fires is halved.

Money and Tax Balancing

Currently you always have loads of money in the long term. We are trying to improve the balancing of this a bit. In the first step we have increased the start budget and decreased tax income. At the same time we have increased the tax bonus you receive when your people have a high quality of life.

New UI for Details on Productivity and Quality of Life

2017 09 22 Production

Over the course of the last years Imagine Earth has become a quite complex game. A part of this complexity is how productivity is influenced by nearby buildings and local factors like ground fertility. With this update we are introducing a new info panel that is shown when a building is clicked. It sums up the productivity and lists all the influencing factors and their strength. This will make it a lot easier for you to understand what is going on and how to increase the production output of your colony.

2017 09 22 Tax

The second part of this is how the quality of life in cities is influenced. A high quality of life will give you a tax bonus and a low quality will decrease your income. Buildings like the park district, health district and campus district increase the quality of life in surrounding districts. Other factors will decrease it. The new info panel lists the details on this, so you always know what's going on.

2017 09 22 MiniInfo

Finally the former building info panel in the bottom left of the UI is replaced with a minimal version that shows the building's / object's name for the selected field and its production value / remaining resources.

Other improvements

  • You can open the build ring by right-clicking on any field now
  • Added explanations for epidemics
  • Bookmark panel no longer "clicks through"
  • Research and development panels no longer change the planet zoom level
  • Visualization for items received during the mission
  • Changed influence area visualization for cannons, shield, fire stations and more
  • Fixed city car animation problems
