I've got most of the harder bits (cloaking/tachyon/tractors) of the current batch defined. It could probably be ready to go out later tonight, just depends on what happens here schedule-wise and if I run into any more snags.

Given the time left in the day at this point, shooting for Monday instead might just be smoother all around.

@BadgerBadger: While that would mean no new stuff for the weekend, that would overall likely mean more new stuff faster if you look at the next week or whenever as a whole.  Each release is more than a small expenditure of energy in terms of making sure everything is tidied up, etc.

Monday
Gives me more time to get more models finished up for inclusion!

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

Except the ones you can't see. Because they're cloaked. And behind you.

Yep, I was just about to push out the new version, but now everything crashes for me, go figure.  The unity editor, and everything else.  I updated my graphics card drivers to the latest 381.65 version today, and now I get an exception inside the driver when launching much of anything that relies heavily on the GPU.  I'm working that out, and then the build will go live.

Okay, I got it worked out.

It turns out it was indeed the newest nVidia driver, 381.65.  It's their newest WHQL certified one, and it broke basically every 3D program on my machine.  Soundminer, unity, every Arcen title, Steam, you name it.  Probably photoshop, though I didn't try that one.  Chrome was fine.

I tried reinstalling that driver with a clean install, and it still was busted on everything.  That then removed my ability to do a driver rollback, naturally.  >:(

So I went on and looked and found the 378.92 version, which is most likely what I was previously on.  I did a clean install of THAT, and now all the things work properly again.

The new build is currently uploading on Steam now.

Grabbing a bite to eat, and I'll post when the build is up.  It's uploading very slowly, and my window to get food is closing. ;)

nVidia has been having bad luck with drivers lately. There was a version a couple weeks back that broke Minecraft.

Ouch -- but surely not a WHQL version?

So I decided to give the new version a try, and I see a new message
Started listening to [0.0.0.0:55369]
Preloaded 'ScreenSelector.so'
PlayerConnection already initialized - listening to [0.0.0.0:55369]
Player data archive not found at `/home/user/AIWar2/AIWar2Linux_Data/data.unity3d`, using local filesystem[[email protected] AIWar2]$

A. What is data.unity3d?
B. Note that this error message doesn't have a newline at the end.

You wrote that before I had my "new release available" message up, but at any rate I answered you in that thread just to keep it clearer: https://forums.arcengames.com/ai-war-ii/ai-war-2-alpha-v0-119-'ship-batch-1-of-7-24-ships!'-released!/msg214678/#msg214678
