Carrier Command: Gaea Mission is a rebuild of the excellent classic Carrier Command, which allows you to command from the deck of a futuristic aircraft carrier. Your job is to colonise islands as manufacturing, defence or mining and build up a logistics base for your carrier. You can launch ground vechiles (Walrusses) and UAVs (MANTA’s) to go about scouting your way, building colonies and attacking the enemy carrier which is trying to block your way. At the time, the original was an awesomely fluid 3D engine using filled vector graphics. The new version adds troops and looks awesome, as well as true to the original. You can download the original here, I’m very much looking forward to it.
The only game that has come anywhere near to this was the very very buggy Battlecruiser series by Derek Smart.
