What it means is that we are indeed close to a release.
Once i recieve the finalized researches they will be tested one more time in a brutal full game to make sure the AI does what its supposed to do for each faction. Since i am the one that is going to package the mod. I am doing the final test. Also the final at least for the 0.4e release UI tweaks will be done.
What to expect... Similar to the 0.4os release except ships will have dynamic movement. Weapon damage will be balanced a little better because of this. However no strike craft just yet. We are gonna wait until we have models for each faction to use (including borg).
If we decide to do a diplomacy port it will be identical to 0.4e. Except 0.4d will have diplomatic ships, and appropriete diplomacy research.
No promises on an exact date but we are indeed shooting for chistmas. Barring any major setback.
BTW Jay isnt the yellow alert thing a little overkill on the psyching people up?
