    i donĀ“t realy know how further capable the engine of this game realy is .. but still the biggest accomplishment imo is the massiv pottential this game and engine has ... i think it is quite the sandbox for modders to come up with some real awesome stuff ...
    also what still impresses me is the scaleability of it ...

    I'm a bit skeptical.

    I don't doubt that the "gold" build will be a polished and amazing piece of a game,...
    but I really doubt that Uber is going to manage turning this alpha-like balance in this game into something "golden" until then. That will probably scare off many players. Or maybe I'm wrong, we'll see.

    This game is amazing, no doubt about it, but will it have the necessary polish come release? (i.e. unit pathing, server performance, total naval overhaul, unit balance). Only time will tell.

    So let me get this straight, your 1.0 version does not have important, promised features -and you wonder why people are not happy? Really?

    Yes, it's GREAT how far the game has come.. But 1.0 has a strong connotation of being complete. If the game is missing offline play, then it's not complete. Sorry. And if you release the game as 1.0 without it being complete, then you should not be surprised that people are unhappy about it.

    1.0 may not have it, but It should come soon after. It's alright, don't worry too much.

    Great news Brad!!! I look forward to more news on the awesomeness you've been working on all this time!! I agree on this being a good opportunity to call the game 1.0 and show it first there ;)

    I hope that this will make the sales jump and give Uber a break except for some hotfixes. After the break I also hope you guys return and start working on some of the promised features ;)

    PA is awesome and really my favourite RTS game ever!! It's the game I've seen grow from the beginning and seen it become more awesome with every update!!

    Fantastic work Uber, I can't wait for the release!!

    Pony warz! :D

    Anyway, as I said...

    If it's not complete, then don't release it as 1.0. People will judge the game from the 1.0 release, not the 1.x uber release X months later.

    "It's not really complete, but we'll just release it as 1.0 now and then fix it up later".. The history of PC games shows that that's a really bad idea, and honestly, wasn't the half point of kickstarter that **** like this wouldn't happen?

    Personally, I feel Uber is either doing a money grab, or a statement about "this is what we're really wiling to do, the rest.. we'll see". Be honest. Look at the latest builds. Do they feel 1.0 ready? Is the balance okay? Does pathing work well enough? Are naval practical? Are the generated planets tactically interesting to play on? If those issues are still in the "1.0" release, and offline, DRM free play missing.. Then I will be terribly disappointed in Uber. It's not what the release should be, and they know it.

    NO, the point of kickstarter developers don't have to be subservient and initial funding is crowd sourced.;)

    Same here! This new build is going to be awesome, with all the gas giants and this mysterious new annihilation option. Who knows what it could be?

    Yayz :)

    Always good to see more releases.

    If I may ask, should we expect access on Steam/download for dedicated server on this release? I'm gearing up on my end for it. I know others are as well (Brian comes to mind).

    I think we're all eagerly awaiting. Especially yalls cause it's crunch-time and a half over there.

    Have fun at PAX by the way. I expect no one to be sober. I also expect you (Brad) to POOMP....US UP with teasers :)

    I'm well stoked about this! Can people stop moaning about what's missing (at the moment), and start trying to figure out what this new 'mysterious new annihilation option' is.
    And by the way Uber, well done, you should be proud of what you have achieved.

    Oh and Brad, come on man.... Screen shots PLEASE

    Welcome to the forums

    There will not be off-line play yet. The server functionality isn't ready yet to be released so they're holding it back to work on it. They will eventually release it.;)
