Mmm, Million units? We would have to rescale the current planet sizes in a major way just to have sufficient space for that many units to stand in. Currently you would have a hard time fitting 25k units on a planet of the current sizes. As for the longevity of PA, I don't really consider PA to be an entirely new game. Its really more of a continuation of TA, and since a significant portion of the PA dev team are the same people who developed TA, I think it is more proper to say that PA has been in development for over a decade. Its not just a business or software project, its a life's work with this dev team. I liken it to Nethack. There is no reason to believe that this will not continue to be developed in some form or another by these guys. Even at this point, I consider the KS a complete success, and in my mind, the most important part of the goods has been delivered. All that remains at this point is continued refinement and expansion.
