So... we're all dying to know the story behind the name change, Alex.  And how you settled on Star Sector?  Personally, it sounds kind of an awkward and as a phrase holds no meaning.  Not that it's a bad name.  90% of game titles are even more empty random conglomerations of words marketing decides sound awesome together.  And obviously, the game isn't affected.  Still the same awesome package.  It's more a question of sating the curiosity of your rabid fans.

I thought the name made perfect sense. It's a game about a sector of stars. Starsector. Starfarer is cool, but all it connotes is a traveler of the stars. Neither is any more meaningful than the other, really.

colorblind mode ehh

just allow player to select colors from GUI, enemy units = color, ally = color, disabled = color and soo on, this will allow user to setup colors and select colors most comfortable to use.

most games use blue + yellow as universal colorblind.

Really, really atmospheric, my new wallpaper. I really curios what the final purpose of those pictures is (not tower climbing I guess) and how many of them we will get to see.

Anyone got a clue what the "Thing" is that Stain is cooking up? What does the sound guy want with a high res picture?

He put the turret on the wrong side ::)

That is easy to fix:

Speaking of mirrored, the Astral still has those mirrored navigation (red and green) lights at the front that are reversed from what I can tell since the it originally had the bridge on the left with the lights correctly oriented, I wonder if those will ever get fix'd one day (I can't check atm but I hope I'm not wrong D:) :P

I really do like the station, reminds me of a rustier-less maintained airport with probably equally harsh treatment of cargo  ::)
It does make me wonder if that is the orbital station the hegemony uses, if so, maybe one day we'll get to see a picture of the tri-tachs in their natural environment. ^.^

Getting flashbacks to the first Starcraft II CGI trailer where Tychus Findlay dons his Marine armor - the smallest, weakest unit in the game, suddenly blown up to epic, life-like proportion. Great work, David.
