To access your Player News page from anywhere within UltraCorps, click the COM-NET button at the top of the screen.
Game InformationThis section tells you the turn number and next scheduled tick. It also links to the detailed Game Information page and to Player Rankings.
Headlines display below Game Information. They are in-game news . . . be sure to read the new headlines every turn! To display any headline topic, just click it.
Any new UltraMail (the in-game email sent by other players) appears here. By clicking a message, you can read and reply to it. Or you can click on the sender's name to get information about him.
Each game has its own in-game forum, exclusively for that game's players. The Forum link will take you straight to the forum for the game you are in. There is also a Forums button in the ComNet sidebar, which will take you to the general forums area.Recent Battles
Battle News appears at the top right. It shows all your combats on the last tick. "Captured From" and "Defended From" results are good news - you won the battle. These are indicated by green arrows. "Captured By" means somebody took one of your worlds. "Defended By" means your attack on that world was a failure. (You won't have to punish the commander; a fleet which loses is wiped out to the last being.) Lost battles are indicated by red arrows.
At the bottom of the battle listing is a link that will let you List All Battles you have had in the entire game.
Below the battle news is a listing of every world in your empire. Asterisks (*) indicate worlds that you conquered on the previous tick. Clicking a world name takes you to its World Information page and shows its position on the Star Map.
