Yes, the Rotor must be substituted by another piece, but I have thought about the game, and it should be good re-define the entire set of pieces, because it is very possible that this game works better with weaker pieces, making it much more strategic, due the fact that the objective of the game is, in essence, of run instead of checkmate. If you are interested in the basic concept of the game, I invite you to think on an alternative, playable game based in Alpha Centauri concepts, it is going to be, necessarily, an entirely different game, regardless the basic ideas, because Alpha Centauri was an interesting exotic idea though as a whole, but unfortunately, it crashed once tested in vitro.
