ok, this is it. Five 20-liners in 25 days.

Planet Caravan:
You are the captain of an interplanetary trade ship. You make money by
hauling cargo between planets, buying low and selling high. Ten planets
have recently been settled in this sector, and their fledgling economies
are very volatile. Keep an eye on the news headlines for insight into
what prices might be like on a given world.

Gazillionaire was awesome, therefore makes any games that resemble it awesome too, including this one

Could you PLEASE make this into a .exe too? No DBpro here... only DBC.

I cannot access your media download terminal. I get 70% if the zip and then it says "Error: Server Connection has been set back." Does anybody know, what that might be. Or could someone post any alternative link or so...?
I'm desperate to try this game too. Seems to be ingeniously fantastic!

Wherever you plan to go,
it's the next step you never know.

How is this 20 lines? even the Dims are more than 20
Perhaps ive misinterpreted the rules, but that is way more than 20 lines.

I get the most basic stuff wrong, lots of questions here

In case people missed the post in the DBPro forum, I gave this 20-liner a graphics upgrade also.

You can find the new version here..
