Nice to see we can build upgrades as we build ships. Will this be valid for all races? In SC I know when upgrading some buildings, it no longer lets you build units but for others (like hatcheries) it does.

Also for the gameplay speed, just make sure to build structures, it doesn't take as long as in Warcraft III. Lots of ppl dislike WC3 because it's too slow-paced compared to Starcraft. Units takes an OK amount of time to build, but structures, even the simplest ones, takes about 5 minutes to build.

Yes, this will be valid for all races, although like in SC, you will only be able to upgrade one thing at a time per building.

Don't worry about the long building time, incidentally.  I'm leaving myself a maximum of 2 minutes, and under very rare circumstances.  The average will be 15 - 45 seconds.

There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

Ah ok, sounds good then :D
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I'm fan of oll RTS games!
I was sorta disappointed about the StarCraft Beta for 83+/84+... It seems like they stopped programming..
I can't wait to play the campaign!
Sig wipe!

Yeah I wish it got finished. I remember following the project on the original MaxCoderz forums back in 2003 and there was another SC project called StarCalc on Omnimaga and United-TI back in late 2007 that looked epic.

All the StarCraft clone(?) of TI 83/84 is either turn-based or ceased to exist...

I wonder about the one by Lieb Ist Krieg (sp?). I heard it wasn't turn-based but the sprites did not look even close from Starcraft. I never tried it, though. It was not finished but it looked more complete than the ASM ones. It was in xLIB, though, so it might be limited.
