The wiki and its 1,428 pages are managed and maintained by contributors from the Aurora community.

Nevertheless, this wiki should get you started.

About Aurora

Aurora is a 4X (eXpand, eXplore, eXploit, and eXterminate) science fiction strategy game. Players develop their interstellar empire from the humble beginnings on their homeworld to conquer the universe, or be pummelled into the ashes of history by opposing races.

Some say it has the graphical charm of an income tax assistant software from the late nineties, but a playing depth that more than rivals any commercial 4X game. Aurora is different because it places emphasis on fleet operations and detailed tactical combat.

The game is under constant development and there is an active and friendly player community in the forum that will help you with any question or problem you might encounter.
