    Right click -> properties -> Betas -> select "pte"

    that should get you set up for it. you may need to verify files to get it to update to pte build. It should not overwrite stable.

    wow navy unit sizes reduced :eek:
    wow bombers are now a target priority :eek:
    wow some form of auto economy management :eek:
    wow...

    now do something about "energy cost of t1 engineers too high" and "we have no wrecks" and a bunch of other things. But you are on the right track for sure! :p

    Does this also work on engineers? I think it would be helpful to have on any kind of resource consuming "thing"

    how much health do have units in flight actually have? Does the drop pod protect them? Or is it just the flying unit?

    I'm not sure, but I suspect their health is the unit health. I had no trouble dropping Slammers in AI commander base despite all the AA towers. Only the first Slammer landed with almost no health left.

    When will system editor and lobby fixes come? And also the recent "No spawns" bug?

    Anyway I can't wait to test it, as long as no more bugs are added. :confused:

    Sorry, I can't brain this right now, can somebody please elaborate. Is there additional UI controls or is this blanket for all fabbers that are starved of a particular resource?
