So, what's the next patch going to be?  0.54a?  .6a?  I wanna know so I can determine how much is going ot be added. ;D
The next patch is most probably going to be a 0.53.1a, then we'll see a patch to .6A! YAAY

Yeah, I imagine it'll be .6a, since Alex'll be adding something pertaining to the campaign.

I absolutely love the phase skimmer on the medusa. It's a killer now, even more so than before. I managed to take out one of the pirate fleets with a venture, using only two medusas. I countered their flanking attempt, only because of the phase skimmer. And it kept me alive against the freighters, as I took them down one by one, while my wingman kept the venture busy. I used the same strategy on the venture, skimming inside range to fire at him, and backing out again when my flux level was filling. It's awesome.

Yeah I really think skimming is my favorite system. (though I haven't actually played with teleport, yet, haha).

Burn drive is pretty awesome though. Love drive-bying medusae that are trying to escape by skimming.  :)

i do recall Alex either making a post, a blog, or a thread about how he was going to do the patch versions.. im leaning towards a blog.. but sufice it to say if i remember correctly and i believe i do.. then he is going to go on with .53a>.54a>.55a>.56a etc.

here i did you guys a favor and tracked it down for you.. it was in a blog a while back

First off – let’s talk about version numbers. The previous release was technically a “preview” of the 0.5a build “proper”, whatever that means. That was until I started thinking about how to version this “bugfixes & improvements” release, which still wouldn’t have all the features slated for 0.5a. 0.5a2? 0.5a-preview2?

I’ve had to sit through a few meetings with people arguing about version numbers at my various former jobs (seems like everyone doesn’t want to waste time with it, but also can’t stand doing it any way but theirs), and I don’t want to be that guy, especially not to myself. Down with the version number sophistry! This release will be known henceforth as 0.51a, and the next one will be… wait for it… 0.52a. I’ll just have to avoid specifying a version number when talking about planned feature sets, as I did with version 0.5a.

I’m sure everyone is quite sick of talking about version numbers by now (see what I mean? I didn’t want to waste time on this, and look what happened!), so let’s dive into what’s new in this version.

You won't be able to refit fighters and bombers at all. They're designed/balanced around having a particular set of weapons and would be very broken if you could change it. Which ones you pick for your fleet -out of quite a few that are available- is the choice here, not how they're outfitted.

The next release is going to be v1.3, and won't be out until Q2 2013.

It's a pretty good combat overhaul. And there's without a doubt some subtle and not-so-subtle balance issues scattered about as a result. And the AI doesn't handle the systems perfectly. But still, very good regardless.

Phase is the shield button.  A ship system is totally different.  Sometimes I think you're trolling us all. :shrug:
