multiplayer game of
interstellar war and science fiction adventure.
Hazeron game Universe is
presented to the player in
first-person perspective. Sizes and
distances are scaled dramatically from reality whenever necessary for
tolerable game play and limitations of computers. In other words it
really take years to travel to another star, there are hundreds of
stars in the sky at night instead of millions, and the nearby planets,
and suns appear huge and close in the sky with the unaided eye. Each
player perceives the Universe as if
they were seeing and hearing it with their own eyes and ears. Players

together to form empires. Empires are
exploring and developing new
solar systems and by conquering the solar systems developed by others.
Empires are formed, conquer, and are conquered in a continuous struggle
dominance of the Universe.
empires by building cities. Cities are
constructing industries and roads. Roads expand the reach of a city;
industries are built next to its roads. As cities grow, a population of
citizens grows with them. Citizens construct buildings,
manufacture commodities, and otherwise perform the everyday jobs of the
city. While building the homes and industries of a city, players must
manage the challenges of a growing population, morale

a central role in the game. Spacecraft are
designed by players in the game
rooms of a spacecraft are "painted" into a grid that can be lowered and
decks below and above. The game creates a fully functional three
dimensional model of a spacecraft from the design. Players earn in-game
commissions when their spacecraft designs are manufactured, encouraging
skilled spacecraft architects to share their designs with others. Once
manufactured, spacecraft are used to explore the galaxy and to combat
worlds, intergalactic wars and
the politics of galactic empires form a rich environment for science

combinations for the layouts and contents of sectors and
solar systems, the terrain and weather of planets and moons, the DNA of
plants and animals, the designs of starships, and the machinations of
clever players. Three dimensional representations of plants and animals
are synthesized from compact DNA data, not pregenerated models. With
over 300 trillion times a trillion combinations of plant DNA and over
80 thousand trillion times a trillion times a trillion combinations of
animal DNA, no two planets in the Universe are likely to have the same
plants and animals. Shores of Hazeron
presents an exceptionally vast and varied Universe for
