New! This game is now StarCluster 4 - The Neclace, with the original StarCluster 3 system completely replaced with the new StarCluster 4 system. This game is entirely  self-contained - you do not need any other StarCluster 4 product to play this game.

The Necklace is the thickest part of a gas torus around a neutron star, itself a part of a close binary with a hot F-type star. The gas torus was formed when another gas giant orbiting the neutron star was slowly stripped of its enormous atmosphere. The gasses stayed in a ring, slowly orbiting the neutron star. The torus changed as life spread into it. Life begets oxygen, and oxygen begets life.

The Necklace is the inner, denser part of the gas torus, which is breathable for normal humans and earth animals. There is no hard and fast boundary - the air just gradually gets thinner and thinner. This area is about 20 thousand kilometers in diameter. The entire torus has a thickness diameter of about 2 million kilometers, and an overall diameter of 9 million kilometers.

There is room for a lot of adventures among tree-covered asteroids, and along an artificial River a billion kilometers long, with half sunk asteroids in the river as islands, and all teeming with life. The game focus is entirely dependent on what you set your Association up to do - News Agency, Insurance Adjusters, Salvage Operators, Political Henchmen... There are 100 story seeds with the game, five for each of the 20 standard Association types.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
