OK, I loaded it up, played for an hour and I'm sold.
Simply, WOW! First thing to see is the amazing explosions and weapon trails, then the variety of planets. I'm amazed at how good it looks/sounds!
It's almost a new game with the new techs and prices, etc.
I read through the change log here, and went to the DS site, but is there a page/doc with an explanation of the tech changes, as well as all the other changes for the DS mod?
Also, is there a list of preferred maps (DS comes with a few, but there must be more out there)? I read the thread about the DS maps, but most of the posts are over a year old. Which ones are best/recommended for dl?
