RC2. Why, is it showing up as "Rc2" somewhere?

Yeah, when I downloaded from Here! it gives me "Starsector Release Candidate 2"

Might just be a naming error.

And: Managed to transfer my game files! The LP will go on!

Not sure I like the new name quite so much. For one, the name just doesn't roll off the tongue the same for me, and it just seems a bit too "Stock Sci-Fi Name #377" to me. Of course, at the end of the day it's Alex's choice but it'll still be there at the back of my mind
Agreed.  We're all kind of nostalgic (already) over the name change, I'm sure it'll wear into us in no time.  Aside from that, the new content is nice.  :)

As a side note, I'm storing away the .54 release a keepsake. :) The last of a great series (not to say the rest of it isn't).

What do you mean by can't transfer it?

I can't transfer it because apparently my mod is open somewhere.

Weird - not seeing anything odd on those pages, or in the download links.

Have you tried restarting your computer?

Ok, I have overcome the name-shock :)  Now some small things I noticed about the actual content:

- There's no right clicking to deselect for aptitudes. Would be nice.
- I like the new UI sound scheme, it has more *rumble* than the old one. But there's one exception: Right click on a skill makes a spitting sound. Seriously. I can't unhear it.
Other than that its great!

BTW, did you see the new skill UI tooltip suggestion Alex? I think it's better than the other one.

- Very small: maybe for HEF "+100% engine/weapon damage taken" is better than "weapon/engine damage", because reading "weapon damage" instantly triggers a false assoziation

I've got a Tachyon barbecue to attend now :D

The game was completed 8 years ago and we get a free expansion every year.

Arranging holidays in an embrace with the Starsector is priceless.

Yea, aptitudes are kind of hard to undo. ;) Maybe there should be another arrow on the right to click that removes a point?

And I kind of got suprised by new click sounds.  And yes, it does sound vaugely like spititng. ;D

P.S. - Any decorative weapons in the base game?  I'd like something to base the code for it off of.

Yay :)

- There's no right clicking to deselect for aptitudes. Would be nice.

Right. That's a significant enough change where I think "reset" is warranted. Would have to ensure that any skills raised past that point got unraised, and all that.

- I like the new UI sound scheme, it has more *rumble* than the old one. But there's one exception: Right click on a skill makes a spitting sound. Seriously. I can't unhear it.

You'll be happy to know that's not a "real" sound, just a last-second hack to get this out the door :)

BTW, did you see the new skill UI tooltip suggestion Alex? I think it's better than the other one.

Yeah, mulling it over.

- Very small: maybe for HEF "+100% engine/weapon damage taken" is better than "weapon/engine damage", because reading "weapon damage" instantly triggers a false assoziation

Wait, I'm confused. You're saying the false association would be a good thing?

P.S. - Any decorative weapons in the base game?  I'd like something to base the code for it off of.

sensordish.wpn. Any normal weapon will work as well, though.

Sensor dish?  Is it actually mounted on any ships?  If not, I can manage. ;D
