Remnants of the Precursors is a modernization of the 1993 strategy game "Master of Orion". You will play as one of 10 unique races and lead them to galactic domination or, if you fail, humiliation and defeat. Micromanagement is minimal and the gameplay smooth and streamlined.
Current Version: Beta 2.12a

Remnants of the Precursors is delivered as an executable Java file designed to be playable on any Windows, Mac or Linux PC. It is a Java application, so you must have the 64-bit version of Java 8 installed on your system. You can download Java for free at: Java.com
My recommendation is to create a special folder in which to keep the game. Once you have downloaded the it (Remnants.jar file), simply double-click on the file to start it with Java. If for some reason you want or need to start the game from the command line, you can type:
java -jar Remnants.jar
All saved game files will be stored in that same directory and have the *.rotp suffix.
There are two special files you may see in this directory:
Remnants.cfg – this file keeps the configuration settings. It is a text file and safe to view, but please do not manually change the values as this might create unexpected behavior in the game.
recent.rotp – this is the saved game file that Remnants uses to keep track of the current game being played. Every time you hit “Next Turn”, this file is updated immediately and then again after the game has finished playing the turn. If any bugs occur during the Next Turn, this is the file I can use to debug the problem.
