Cool, thanks. (But you're not Chris, why are you making this post?)

Also, any updates to the Steam still pushing version 4.021 thing?

EDIT: Also, how long has it been since you've been on? I haven't seen you for a while.

(I only help with the Steam and Facebook communities for AI War, although I thought this would be a useful post for everyone here to know about.  As for the version problem, that's a question for Keith or Chris, as I don't use it with Steam and haven't played AI War for a long while.

Hm!  Well, for a long time I think!  :p)

Aw, we need you back. Who else can find and abuse oversights in such a charming and quirky way? Remember being the Lord of 50 Colony Ships? Keep playing, and you may find a new title to crown yourself with. :D

I'm afraid my spirit was in diminishing state ever since the colony ship cap was introduced.

That would almost show you dont have steam, everything on the 'official' steam group is being posted by Spikey00 :)

I do, but I tend to not pay attention to authors when not chatting or on forums. Maybe I should start.  ::)

Anyways, a belated thanks for maintaining that stuff Spikey.  :)

I see them pop up while I'm in the middle of a TF2 scrim but I read this here forum while I'm at work so I usually know about the announcement before it's announced. I expect there are other people who appreciate them too.

In other news Steam itself still isn't showing any update news for the 5.0 release -> http://store.steampowered.com/news/?feed=steam_updates&appids=40400

Those patch notes have some odd break points as well.

# Many significantly rebalanced units, including MLRS, Anti
# Armor, Transports, Sentinel Frigates, Scout Starships, all melee ships, mines, all Golems. Many of these units are like all
# new (and much more useful) ships.

and

# New AI modifiers for optional less
# Tower
# Defense
# inspired gameplay for advanced players: No Wave Warnings, Cross Planet Waves

What?

I liked it with the 4.x beta updates, playing say 4.066 with Steam enabled. Get a pop-up saying 4.066 now available .. eerrrr ..  ::)
