First impression of the new Thunder: it is waaaaaaaay too fast. It can't actually kill things because its attack runs last milliseconds.

So whats coming next? A 0.8.2 that'll "flesh" things out even further? Or maybe things are a in a good spot now and it's time for Outposts? :O

And you said Odyssey won't receive any OPs! While we're at that, Heron also got some, previously maxed with +10% skill now show 3 unspent OPs.

Has anyone else here Avast? I've tried downloading 0.81 a couple of times already and every single time when it's about to finish downloading Avast says ''threat detected'' and I can't do *** about it. One time it actually downloaded, Avast deleted the file immediately as I opened it. I remember 0.8 also having some problems with Avast but this is far more annoying.

It'd probably do more damage if it was slower, but speed does have other advantages, especially couple with its range.

Aside from hotfixes, I it's on to new features!

Probably due to OP cost reductions of a few fighter wings. Some variants might be over OP as well, as a few fighter now cost more.

Hmm - can you disable Avast entirely for the duration of the download and installation? (Also, if you can report it to them as a false positive, that'd be a great help.)

I can't even report it as a false positive, which I did with 0.8... Guess only thing I can do is to disable it.

Or so I hear.

Oh, hmm - hulls with dmods don't show in the Codex. Probably not "correct" behavior here, but as the Codex is iffy at the moment, it's just one more thing to look at for it, eventually.

Anti-viruses, just ugh. In my experience, MSE is just about good enough these days, and not intrusive. But really, nothing gets you all that much protection anyway, it's mostly a false sense of security.

I was in middle of installing and AVG decided it was a threat.  Couldn't get around it, so I ended up just disabling AVG for the 30 seconds it took to install.

It's actually great if you want to have a rapid response force, for example to help allies in trouble or intercept an enemy frigate on way to a nav buoy. Often you have to back them up after they delayed the enemy, though.
A while I had a kinda command ship (Drover) with Nav Relay, ECM package and as only direct intervention method two of the new Thunder wings. Worked pretty well.

Oh, yeah, right, I forgot about that.

(We get you want to stay low-key about this, but we won't blow the whistle on you!)

From some early tests Odyssey with twin plasma cannons and two longbow wings seems capable of killing everything non-capital in one 4-sabot salvo and then 1 double plasma cannon salvo, with HEF. If it worked on Dominator, it has to work on everything, right?
And... I finally can say that... David, I know you like this rounded gun mounts on Colossus, but really I'm pretty sure pather or pirate captains wouldn't pay attention to such aesthetic!

PS. AM I HEARING NEW MUSIC?
