    Basically called it, given that I was unaware of PAX

    Whether "before PAX" comes before I leave... could be hairy, and I'll probably miss some hotfix builds even if I catch the main one.

    lol, "nothing fancy" when referring to an RTS where you can smash entire maps against other maps. Is it really that hard to maintain some kind of sensible perspective on the omg monumental changes that are going on?

    No it will not include off-line play. Several weeks back Uber made an announcement on this forum that 1.0 will not include off-line play because of technical issues. We will get it in a update sometime after release. The next build is not a release it is a gold if there is any major bugs will not be used as the release version.:)

    Let's hope that the version is *actually* ready. There's still so much stuff to be done, I just *can't* trust Uber, that all of the stuff that they wanted for 1.0 is actually ready.

    So gas giants and metal planet lasers? Cool. I'm assuming some of those gas-giant specific units (mining platform mostly) will make it in too, no?

    Split Interface is partially implemented via PiP. Multiplayer GW should've been in the initial release for the raising of it being a kickstarter stretch goal. The kickstarter concept-pitch video will make people have the assumption of Unit cannon. It's not really what the people on the forum think it is everybody else that's making me that concerned.
    All of the stretch goals in their entirety were commitments either explicitly or implicitly made during the kickstarter campaign. To be reasonable I can understand why they won't make it into the release but will later come in future updates.:) As per modders adding kickstarter functionality to the game that is strictly Uber's responsibility.;)

    Wasn't galactic war itself the stretch goal, not necessarily multiplayer galactic war.

    I've missed it too.

    I must admit I'm a bit sad. DRM Free and Linux support are two promises that are quickly made in kickstarter campaigns and quickly forgotten for release with usual answers "not a priority... will be sometime after release..."

    I still hope, all these will be quickly corrected after release (not many months after)

    I hope also that all that minor bugs untreated yet will be squished out, like a correct international keyboard support.

    I'll get my fingers crossed for the release !
