________________________________________________________________

Set in the distant future, Empire of the Eclipse tasks players with establishing an interstellar empire and using diplomacy, economic acumen and conquest to thrive.

If you've always thought playing a game like Civilization or Master of Orion on a massive scale would be incredible, but you've been continually let down by the scores of so called 'Freemium MMO Strategy Games' on iOS, then Empire of the Eclipse is the game for you.
Key Features:

Play to Win, not Pay to Win: Players can't buy their way to victory with in app purchases unlike other 'Strategy MMO's.

Massively Multiplayer: Fight, trade, scheme and vie for universal domination with thousands of other players per game.

Epic Universe: Games can range in size from 2,500 to 90,000 sectors. Explore, conquer and exploit hundreds of thousands of planets.

Explore: Fog of war and dynamically generated universes require exploration and reconnaissance, key components of the empire building experience.

Streamlined Interface: Jump to any controlled planet or fleet from anywhere in the galaxy with just a few touches.

Diplomacy: Enact a state of Peace, War or Embargo with other players. A rich array of interpersonal player dynamics awaits.

Many Ways to Win: Win by the application of brute force or economic superiority. Transcend the stars or collect ancient alien artifacts. Whether warmonger, diplomat or explorer, there are always ways to win.

Skill Trees: Utilize a diverse and flexible selection of over 40 skills that allow you to do anything from creating black holes to swindling other players in trade deals.

Player Communication: Robust in-game mail and chat systems feature private channels and item attachments to negotiate trade and arrange covert operations.

Retina Display: Stunning visuals are tailor-made to support both Retina and traditional iPhone displays.

A single account may login from any iOS device you or anyone else owns.

Supports iOS 5.0+ devices.

60% for the first planet. The other one is an "earth" so I think it should be fine but it won't work either.

How do I get more resources? When I harvest it doesn't seem to be giving me more resources...

So your colony ship disappeared but the planet still doesn't belong to you? You should be able to use a colony ship on any non-gas planet, but if it's base terraform level is zero, you'll get an outpost instead of a colony.

Harvesting doesn't create resources. It moves them from one planet to another. Make sure you don't have your route set up backwards. Apparently some people are harvesting their colonies and sending the resources to outposts

Put a message in the tech support forum on zarksoft.com. Link - They're really quick about fixing that.

Napaka - Where are you seeing information that says crashes are fixed on ios 4.2&4.3? The closest comment I can find is this: "- 4G Touch should perform better, crashes should be fixed" which isn't the same thing.
It said so in the update info on this very site.

Seems like the Irkalla game has ended, but what a boring way to do it. Tried to log in and got an error about the server not existing anymore. Obviously you are worried that this is another bug, but you have to read the forum that someone won in that game. What a lousy way to end a month long game.

This game is a giant dump. Next time when you try to release a game, make sure it works first.

I played it one or two days... ...and I must say that the game has a really bad UI and it is way from intuitive...
Sorry@Zarksoft, but that is the bitter truth..

Pathetic. Do NOT buy a subscription. I bought a 1 month account which I haven't even been able to login to. I emailed support about this about a week ago and they haven't even bothered to answer. They are simply stealing your money.
