Gotta be careful with that numbering system.  There's only so much space between 0.5 and 1.0  ;)

On the other hand, the next version will have a whole bunch of new stuff. From the sound of it, 0.5 doesn't sound like a bad description.

Transcendence ran into the issue with version numbering, so it went like this:
.7 (first public beta) .8 .9/a/b/c/d/e .95/a/b/? .96/a/? .97/a/b/? .98/a/b/c/d .99/a/b/c 1.0RC1-RC8 1.0 1.01 (hotfix) 1.02 (beta for 1.1) 1.03 1.04 1.05 1.06/a 1.07/a

Part 1 of 3 which was initially scheduled for completion at version 1.0 looks like it won't be done till 1.1 (Part 2 and Part 3 are still on track for 2.0 and 3.0 respectively)

Thanks guys!

Note that I did not say when in January. Because I don't actually know.

As far as the version numbers, can always hit up the irrational numbers if it gets desperate. Version sqrt(2)a, anyone?

Oops, I meant (sqrt(2)/2)a, to fit into the 0.5-1 range :) Taking a poor joke too far - that's what I do.

Excellent!

That is a good character trait in my opinion!  :) lol

Also, I wish a Happy Christmas, and Merry Holidays to you!  ;D

Even still, waiting to january 31st would still be about 6 weeks, which isn't that bad, especially considering that's a fraction of the time we've already waited.

Can we at least get some screens of the new weapons? :D

...

and maybe the csv's displaying the fleetpoint values of ships and weapons? (mostly to get a better idea of how we should pre-emptively balance stuff)

That. Besides, good things are worth waiting for.

If you look on the Paragon screenshot, you'll spot a Heavy Blaster. As far as balance... that's somewhat in flux, if you pardon the pun. The OP costs of weapons are ~5/10/20 based on size, though, a bit less or more depending on quality.

Well, I'm glad there's no pressure or high expectations :P

Ah ok, so balance probably won't be set in stone until the actual .5a? (not .5a-pre)

I don't know if I'd say "set in stone", but it'll take a large step towards that with the preview release, and a larger one with the actual 0.5a, yeah.
