Any word on 0.62a yet?

Well, let's see. The good thing is the CR tweaks are pretty much settled, though not quite done yet. Was thinking about writing a blog post about that once it's wrapped up and I've had a chance to playtest a little. Beyond that, there are quite a lot of little things to knock out. So I wouldn't count on it coming out super soon.

Glad to hear that. Though I always was against whole CR/high repair cost thing, I still enjoyed last two updates very much. It turned out that if I play new update as a whole new game, CR isn't that bad and I can enjoy game even with new unusual mechanics. And it doesn't matter what and how exactly I do in game, if its fun.
But because now I am on good terms with what CR done to my game experience, I was a little afraid that I will lose this newfound friend with next updates. Because it seems that people still find CR and supplies cost confusing and hard to adapt to, though its really not that big of a deal.

Thanks! Happy to hear you say that :)

I think that touches on a really interesting point, too - future updates are bound to upset the status quo even more, as combat gradually stops being the only thing you can do and other playstyles open up.

But because now I am on good terms with what CR done to my game experience, I was a little afraid that I will lose this newfound friend with next updates. Because it seems that people still find CR and supplies cost confusing and hard to adapt to, though its really not that big of a deal.

I don't think the changes are drastic. Looking forward to writing that blog post, but have to get it wrapped up first and make sure everything actually works out as expected.

NP; I can't really work on my mod atm, either, so it's a bit of a wash either way; it'd be nice to be able to play it without crashes though :)

Ah but crashes are character building xeno :D

Well, I could rip out features; I know what's causing the crashes.  I'm just too busy / lazy atm :)

A bit late, but I just tried the new-and-improved Vulcan, and it is useful now.  Two or more Vulcans are effective at point defense (and better at it than machine guns), and for some ships (mainly Dominator), I have been able to swap out flak cannons for maulers/HVDs/needlers and flux-hungry light ballistics for vulcans.  Vulcans are also very deadly against unarmored targets.  I tried a Lasher with Vulcan x5, and it can kill a Hammerhead with ammo to spare.  In previous versions, I thought why use Vulcan instead of machine gun.  Now, there is a reason.

My experience with Cr is roughly the same. The mechanic itself isn't bad and adds to the game, it's just that I feel like it wasn't sold all that well to players, and especially new players, let alone someone like me who has read through every blog post and know a little about CR before taking it on.

It's not. The thread is locked to avoid clutter. The title will change when the patch is actually out.
