So I worked a bit on the gfx, and I probably will today (the satellites need a special model) but really what is on the slate is to get that court system working. A lot of it works right now, so it's not such a huge thing. It can be easily extended. Should also then polish off the banking system, and I can work out the court case type for handling when you can't pay up.
I'd like to work a bit more on monster/ship AI. The ships all move at the same speed, that needs to be changed. I also need to tidy up the autopilot a bit. Finally, some gui enhancements, to handle the way ships appear around cities would be a good idea.
