Hi all, thanks for your continued support of the MOD and apologies for not posting sooner. We're still around and continually looking in to the problems you report or suggestions you make as Ryat and Carbon have mentioned the next patch is still underway and I bring good news the next patch will be undergoing testing over the next couple of days once I finalize some of the changes.
With any luck it will be released later on this week aslong as there are no major bugs found. You will be glad to know the skyboxes have been re-vamped to somewhat better colours for you all:
Excuse the insane resolution
Also of note the Vasari capital ships, infact all capital ship amounts have now been adjusted to correctly reflect each other and now start with 1 each. However the maximum is still increased from original sins as is the fleet capacity.
Other updates in this patch include many fixes, and also an attempt at fixing the current minidump issue. This will remove some variation from the planet types however it will help us diagnose the minidump that so many of you are getting. If the change made in the next patch stems the tide of the minidumps then we will have a definitive cause found and we'll be able to hopefully cure it once and for all!
For now however it is due to a memory issue with the game, not your computers - you may have the most powerful computer on this planet and it would still cause an minidump issue, so if you're suffering from it try lowering your graphics settings from highest or high to medium this should atleast band-aid the issue until the exact cause is found.
