Yo! Just two small things I want to clarify before continuing:
1. For how much time have you been making art? Which software do you usually use?
2. Is achromatic a collaboration? Please tell me more about it and your role in it.

Space Explorers: Empire | A great game all about exploring space and raising your own empire!

Not sure if I want to join yet but I have a few questions.
1. Will you be using the cloud to save data? Kind of like my SL games. (like need servers)
2. Will there be multiple programmers?

If you need a python server coder then I can try. Depends on when and how work flow will work!

That's all the questions for now!

My guess for what your going for is https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/718028360 combined with https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/450915588 but without the fighting

I have been making art for about a year and I use pixelart.com
Acromatic is a co-lab about fantasy world with no color I worked for sprite design

We will be using the cloud both to save data (online market) and make the flight multiplayer (spaceships being able to see and interact with each other). In fact, I'm trying to do something similar to the links @-cloudcoding- gave.
However, these aspects will not be developped at the same time. We will start with multiplayer right away (Part I), while the online market will see development in Part IV. If you're only interested in one of these parts, you may join at that time and leave later. You'll still be credited.

There will be multiple programmers. To complete all the work, they may split the assignments and occasionally remix each others' work to improve it. Concerning cloud, I'd really appreciate to have experimented programmers as I don't know well the field.

And right now I'm waiting to have more collaborators in the coding department to start coding, and same for the other departments, so not to make the work charge too high and to make it more productive. It may take no longer than a week.
