######### REGISTRATION DETAILS #########

Full Name:
Quantum Star SE Evolved

System Group Name:


Affero General Public License V1 or later

Quantum Star SE is a space strategy game written in PHP, in a purely object oriented form. The source code is to be released under the Affero General Public License, option for GNU General Public License v3.

The application is essentially a full rewrite of an older project by the same name which I was developing a few years ago. The rewritten form is focused on providing a free open source community developed game which is easily extendable and modified, and which is focused on server resource efficiency and consistent security.

To minimise maintenance and development time, we utilise third party libraries such as Smarty, ADOdb-Lite (based on ADOdb), Savant, and a custom built small MVC framework called Partholan (under the LGPL). As a result the game itself is not overly complex, and relies primarily on a predictable API driven by Partholan, and the GameEngine.

Security is built in a consistent manner, using a whitelist approach, and automating certain tasks such as database escaping, and input filtering. Support for database stored sessions, a challenge/response style login process (to effectively hide the user's passwords in transit in the absence of SSL), php configuration settings, and more are included as standard.

The game was also designed to maximise efficiency in terms of processing and memory since many open source php games see heavy use on shared hosting accounts.

Link to the source code (this is the current test release for developers and beta testers only, and is considered unstable and non-playable): http://www.quantum-star.com/Quantum_Star_SE_Evolved_0.14pa.zip

Other Software Required:
No dependencies which are incompatible with the license - all LGPL or BSD style.
