    ~200mb/build vs ~1GB/build.

    Would be cool to provide both launcher and DMG (if those will be still built) in case there some problem with launcher. :rolleyes:

    Probably won't do this unless it becomes a problem. Having both posted more than doubles our publish time.

    I know some players bypass problem with PA before by running executable from DMG directly. If this easy enough with launcher then it's clearly not required. :)

    Might be @wondible have ideas because he know more about Mac-specific problems.

    Launcher maintains the same PA.app that was in the the .dmg. I only use the launcher for updates because I'm impatient ;^)

    ~/Library/Application\ Support/Uber\ Entertainment/Planetary\ Annihilation/data/streams/{stable|PTE}/PA.app

    Cool, then it's should work fine. Hopefully there won't be problems with launcher on Mac.
