What works

Creating a new campaign.

Generating the Sol system.

Using SpaceMaster (SM) mode to make changes to in-game circumstances, such as adding ships to the map.

Colonizing bodies.

Surveying bodies.

Terraforming bodies.

Issuing Civilian shipping contracts.

Computing a build cycle, and updating the database accordingly.

There have been no crashes so far (several years into the game) and exiting the game is near-instant.

What does not

Nothing that was tested failed to work.

However, in tables like the one in the Ship/PDC design window, the headings aren't bold like they're supposed to be, making it more difficult to find stuff.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Starting with an existing NPR.

Ship-to-ship combat.

Generating a Non-Player Race (NPR).

Jumping to a new star system.

Starting a campaign with a completely synthetic star system, as opposed to using the Sol system.

Additional Comments

I followed Richard Kunkel's instructions for Aurora version 6.1 plus Edwin Smulder's comment. I didn't test whether it would have worked without one of those steps: by Richard Kunkel >>To install, use winetricks to install vb6run. >>Force Wine to register two dlls; ole32.dll and oleaut32.dll. >>The commands "regsvr32 ole32.dll" and "regsvr32 oleaut32.dll" will suffice. >>Install a program called the "Simple Shutdown Timer" in this prefix. It can be found here: http://www.pcwintech.com/simple-shutdown-timer >>Using WINECFG, set overrides for the dlls "ole32.dll" and "oleaut32.dll" to "Native, then Builtin." by Edwin Smulders on Tuesday January 12th 2016, 8:59 >>For the latest version, I needed this in addition to what is mentioned above: >> >>winetricks jet40 >>winetricks mdac28 by Richard Kunkel (contd.) >>Install Aurora as per the standard instructions found on the Aurora forum. >>Run Aurora by running the file "Aurora.exe"
