Yes, for some reason those graphics didn't get pushed down in the Steam 4.021 version, they're looking into that.  Sorry for the confusion!

Do you know when they will be added?

I want to play :(

Deleting local files, and doing a complete reinstall(+ newest updates) still results in missing graphics.

Can you please just put the graphics up somewhere?

This shouldn't be stopping you from playing, or is it just too visually jarring?

Anyway, you can download a non-steam version of the game from one of our mirrors:

http://www.arcengames.com/aiwar_buy.php

You can just install that (and the updates that pop up in game), and play that.  Your steam license keys will work for it.

Alternatively, you could take the graphics out of that install and copy them to your steam version.

We're working on getting the proper graphics into the next steam update; they were in the files we sent up last time (iirc) but I think there was just some confusion about them being needed, etc.  Everyone's ridiculously busy over there.

It's still not showing for me, so I made a copy, upgraded it to beta, and yanked the images from that. It now works for me; unzipping this into your AI War folder should hopefully do the same, if you can't wait. I think this shouldn't cause any problems when the Steam update is released. For me, this needs to go in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ai war fleet command\

Standard disclaimers apply, this isn't an official fix - I hope this is okay with the creators.

No worries at all, it's much appreciated actually.  The next official with Steam will fix it, but for now the betas fix it or you can use the unofficial patch you created, of course.
