Star Wars Combine

With my PC burned to embers and the majority of my internet time spent playing around with an old iphone and a crappy laptop, I've drifted into the community of a fun little browser-based game set in the Star Wars universe.
The Star Wars Combine is an online simulation game. It is programmed and run entirely by volunteers, so playing is free. There are no monthly charges and no premium features that are restricted to players who register a paid account. It offers players a second-life by having its own alternate reality universe set just between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. The game is player driven, all roles - from the emperor or commander of the Rebel Alliance to the fighter pilots - are open for player characters. Combat is not implemented yet (though its being tested at the moment), but the player driven economy offers many options to mine, trade or build cities, facilities and stations. It is essentially a socioeconomic political simulator in a similar fashion to say, EVE Online with an emphasis on roleplay.
Any new player can create their individual character with various skills and more than 50 different races from Star Wars. They can then join an existing group - from the infamous Empire to less famous smaller production, trading or even pirate groups - and later found their own company. There are more than 5,000 planets that can be explored and colonised. Player characters can own their own ships, vehicles, buildings, cities or even companies. Also player groups ("factions") can be owners of anything, setting the Star Wars Combine apart from alliances and guilds in many other similar games.
It's a game made by Star Wars fans for Star Wars fans. Even Trekkies like myself can find something they like. The fact that its played in delayed real-time (IE: A hyperspace jump can take days - even weeks in extreme cases) makes it more of a casual, coffee/lunch-break game which is particularly suited to people with busy schedules.
