The new version has weather, and the next will contain in-game maps just like the real ones!
Real-time empire building and conquest; 10 cultures, each with its own unique strengths and weaknesses and more, just try this game, many players are still playing in multiplayer for free on game ranger with www.7kmultiplayer.com.
You _must_ preorder the game to play Alpha version. Downloads are available here: http://fractalsoftworks.com/2011/04/29/starfarer-alpha-released/
