Cheers!  Thanks for your support -- you can actually do that via here: http://arcengames.com/ai-war-2-kickstarter-paypal-at-last/

Thank you very much! Don't know how I missed that.

No problem!

Hey Chris. I saw the email for the kickstarter but i was deployed at the time and i just barely made it in time to drop some money on the backerkit page. any chance itll be around in maybe may 30th? Id love to drop some cash for a gold merc package but i fear i may be just too late to get it added down the line... or will we still be able to order that and personable AI down he line?

Welcome back!  Glad you are safely returned from your deployment.  Right now the backerkit page is scheduled to be taken down on May 29th, BUT there are some changes coming in the next two days or so that we'll be announcing soon.  With that change we'll likely keep that page up until either late June or early July.  After that we'll be closing it down, but the window will be extending.

More info there soon.  Thanks again for your support!

I'm not sure it's purely masochism if you're also inflicting that on other people.  ;D

What's the word for people like us?  "Generalized sadist?"  That sounds absolutely awful, heh.  ;)

So, would my idea to make cloaked Hunter/Killers (And carriers) fall under that? :P

Cloaked H/Ks in AIWC would be brutal.

Cloaked H/Ks in AIW2, with the new cloaking mechanic, would be horrifying.



I like it.

Look we all know thats not enough. i want cloaked MOTHERSHIPS   :)
"Did the pain set in yet" indeed

Give me the pain i desire :u

On another note for cheese purposes, are you keeping the omega drive? i just had my first game with a massive cheating setup where i slugged it out with quadratic sledge hammer shark A+B AI. all basic ships, no additional spirecraft, golems, just basic ships. it was MAGNIFICENT but it got so bad i had ended up adding 2000 omega drives just to keep up with the AI's exogalactic attacks  :P
can we get an omega drive that jacks up metal gain by....4-5 million... for...... research purposes? I want to see just how much my GPU can handle before it melts. I'm somewhere around 56,000 ships in my fleet(no cap cheat) 18 million threat at the moment lmao. 80 planet map. 10/10 everything except the cookie monster and dark spire.

Also, question about the voice acting, will every unit have lines?

Stuff like "How fast is metal generated" is accessible in easily edited XML. So you can tune things however you would like!

Oh, you guys missed a fun idea for another kickstarter/backerkit tier: design a map. You describe how it should play/the feel of the map and someone else implements it. Maybe you've always wanted a galaxy that looked just like the old roman empire, or classical greece?

That (optimal) ship has almost sailed for a little while. I'm ankle deep in the market and I sense the dip.

In a more serious note, I doubt a site like Arcen has the tools to manage such a thing. You would have far more luck getting a debit card linked to a bitcoin wallet. I use coinbase, but I know others exist.
Life is short. Have fun.
