Some examples of games which Thousand Parsec draws ideas from are, Stars!, VGA Planets, Master of Orion and Galactic Civilizations. These games are often called 4 X's from the main phases found in the games, eXplore, eXpand, eXploit and eXterminate.

What's New in This Release:
After a massive amount of work, Thousand Parsec is proud to announce that the next version (0.2.0) of its primary client is now available.
There have been massive changes to the client's back end code and quite a few UI improvements. Some off the highlights are:
Request Pipelineing. Faster downloads on fast connections and on connections with high ping times.
Automatic Media Downloading. The client will now download the required media of the web.
Animated Planet Graphics. There are now cool animated planet graphics and other graphics displayed in the information screen.
Account Creation Support. You can now create an account on servers straight from the client.
Design Support. You can now create ships, torpedoes or any other object that the server supports. Properties and requirements of designs are calculated locally using a Scheme based language called tpcl.
Message Reference Support. Servers can now say that messages refer to certain objects and the GOTO button will take you to them.
Better Caching. Better support for universe caching and only downloading what has changed.
