Sucks that you lost that funding, but the new client looks pretty nice. Keep up the good work

Yay!
So happy i'll get to play with more explosions and get to watch my poorly commanded ships rip to little pieces while i try to get back into the game; looking forward to seeing the new client as well. :D

well the game looks great on the new engine. Looking forward to testing out the new client

Glad that units can move on a curve otherwise it was just moving forwards or backwards and occasionally sideways ,it was a little dull.

All the improvements so far have been a huge step in the right direction. Keep up the amazing work

A question regarding the targeting AI: Will there be customizable behaviour for the different priority levels?
For example when there is a target with the highest possible priority (lets say "1"). Now my front weapons run out of supply. Can I make it so instead of starting to fire at lower priority targets, my ships turn so that any ready-to-shoot weapons on the other sides of the ships can fire at my high priority target?

Also will I be able to set a default "attack side" for my designs? With the old system, upon receiving an attack order ships would automatically turn their front towards the target, no matter the design/distribution of he weapons. If I were to design a ship with lots of weapons on one side, I would like to be able to set that side to be the default side to turn at the enemy.

Ships don't move at all during attack orders; you have to manually do all the movement.

Lord tyrius, your idea makes me think of a side arm in an fps. Rather then reload you pull out the secondary weapon and then reload both.

@sypheria, could this benefit be "simulated"? Players could program ahead of time to either "use" both (or however many sides the ship has) sides ammunition or not. The effect being if you select "both" then there is a shorter then normal reload (one fore every side of the ship with guns) then once that counter is up the reload time is longer then normal. If that makes sense? Is it too much overly complicated?

Edit: also how do missiles work? Wouldn't missiles that are guided be able to be fired from all sides at once at the same target? Wouldn't the firing arc mean nothing to missiles, all that would matter would be range
