About Starship Command 2

Starship Command 2 is a much-expanded (and currently in alpha) sequel to Starship Command, a persistent-world, massively single-player, real-time tactical starship simulator wrapped in an AI-driven 4X game. Starting with a lowly shuttle, you will trade and battle your way to victory, amassing a gigantic fleet customized to your liking!

What Is Meant by Massively Single-Player?

Massively Single-Player means when you start Starship Command 2 the first time, it will generate a galaxy with thousands of sectors, each with their own planets and economies. Then populate the galaxy with AI-controlled empires that will attempt to conquer every sector. The galaxy persists through every captain you play as. And you can swap between multiple captains and play both sides of a conflict.

The empires will create wars and alliances with other empires, and even break out in civil wars.

But What Do I Do?

Take command of a starship! (or a fleet of starships). Build a fortune by trading commodities, completing missions, collecting taxes from sectors and battle the other empires for glory!


  • Hundreds of empires (hand-crafted and computer generated) to play.
  • Thousands of sectors to colonize, trade with or attack.
  • Automated captain's log generation will note actions taken by you and later save the entire log to a file.
  • Persistent galaxy that stays through all captains you play as.

What is Currently Working:

  • Galaxy generation - All galaxies are based on moddable JSON files.
  • Moddability - In fact, all files are either JSON or PNG, making the game mod-friendly!
  • Empire AI - All empires will act & react to other empires, creating a dynamic galaxy that can span thousands of years.
  • Economy - Trading commodities between sectors and colonizing sectors.
  • Captain's Log - Working, but still needs polishing as more features are added to Starship Command 2.
  • Randomly-created ship hulls and components
  • Massive real-time, tactical, space battles - Possibly hundreds of ships battling, while balancing power usage, shield sections, weapon and shield frequencies, etc.
  • Ship-boarding and capture - Beam aboard enemy ships and capture or sabotage while the battle rages on around you.
  • Job boards - Standard jobs, such as take me here, bring this here.
  • Space Monsters - A large apocalyptic cigar? A disembodied translucent-colored hand? A giant space amoeba? Space squids? Who knows!

What is Planned:

  • More Job boards and scenarios - Scenarios such as moral dilemmas, logic problems, nemesis-battles, space-monsters, empire super-weapons, etc.
  • Planet exploration - Beam down to a planet and explore the terrain, people and animals.
