Today was...interesting to say the least. I played around alot, so I have alot of screenies to show you all. First off we have Aster Cars!
I played alot with beam weapons, so here we have the main cannon of a Kol shooting off its main beam
Here we have a bunch of BEAM bombers, that is, bombers with beam weapons blasting this poor capital ship
And here is a up close shot of the beam fighters weapons hitting the Kol
Here are some shots of the beam fighters in all their fantastic beamy glory: Here
I also (thanks to LodossKnight) tried the 10000 planet galaxy...it took 15 minutes to load
and about 1-2 minutes to scroll out far enough to see a star, but its amazing that the game was able to load at all without a crash! I also had some fun poking around looking at the other races abilities, PhaseGates are definitely cool =p
