first off does the info card update the damage thingy when you do research to update it and if it dosent now will it?
If you mouse over a research project, it tells you what it does. If you mouse over a ship, it will display current/i] data on its damage, shields, HP, etc etc.
second can you/will you be able to have multiple fx tied to one weapon?
Thats something for modders to answer, but I don't [i]think
third whats the chances of pre orders getting it before it hits the shelves? (to compensate for downloading and such things )
Looking above, just to clarify, you will get it before it hits shelves by at least one day via download... or, if your like me, you can just be really nice and have the download on day 1, and
get them to mail you a copy for 10$ more that'll arrive about the time stuff hits the shelves.
