Good list of changes. Here's hoping the 1.8.0 will be available before next week.

Disclaimer: I already own two full copies of the game, and am seriously considering buying the Complete Collection, so I'm kind of biased. :wink:

Why? :lol: tempt, tempt, tempt

You know that it will go to help support a game/company you like. If you have the money to spend, I can think of many worse ways to spend it.

Anyway, some really nice fixes in there and I always love running into new encounters. I can hardly wait for this update to come out.

Why do I get the feeling it's not going to be Galactic leprechauns riding unicorns give you 5 new techs and a pot of gold?

When you click-hold and select a bunch of ships at once. You create a box with your mouse, and everything inside that box is selected. You could do it in the battle screen itself, but not in the fleet manager until now.

I currently (as of yesterday) own 4 copies (I think). I said it before - Its not like anyone else is making something else I want to put money on. Well yeah there is Assassin's Creed 2 (loved the first one) but I am not going to touch that DRM, not even cracked. I was looking forward to Starcraft 2 (A LOT) but no LAN play = none for me (well us), thanks (same goes for D3). Also it's not like this (sotsc) was full game priced - used to paying 60 USD for a game.

I'm a bit confused, about all those different collections. I own the Collector's Edition (and also a physical copy of AMOC, and the ANY addon from d2d). As far as i know, the CE got some additional content. For example, the real space map. Which is the map, i usually use to play. If i now purchase the Complete Collection, will i also have that additional content from the Collector's Edition. Or will i have to install two different copies? Is it possible to have the COMPLETE content of all editions in one installation? :?: :?

Update is already present on Impulse. Many thanks for the band boxing! Hopefully organizing our fleets will be much easier now. Haven't found the random yet, but I will be looking :).

Edit #1: It now seems that you can't place your ships slightly out of fight area in the Fleet Manager.

Wow Impulse beat GG this time. :shock:

I wonder if those updates are interchangeable, since it looks like GG hasn't posted theirs yet and it will likely not show up till Monday their time at the earliest.

Please no spoilers in this topic. I would rather find out stuff like that actually playing the game.
