I'm still in the early stages of the development.

Game Concept, Sci-Fi Ships stations, running in a cluster of stars.

Perl being a back end server that access the database for Multiplayer.
Darkbasic Professional for building the graphical Client.
TrueSpace 6.6 for the Modeling.

Probably need a few more pieces of software later on, but that is my trunk of
development. The Astro Synthesis would be nice to be able to export data, but
not required.
