    Obviously, the big thing in this build is offline server. Here's a few screens of the most relevant points:

    Settings.PNG
    Servers.PNG

    The default setting is "auto", which you shouldn't need to override unless you fall below our recommended spec.

    Additional build notes for PTE:

    [Pathing] Significant changes and improvements to

    [Server] Turned off the idle timer for local games.
    [Server] Turns off local server when use is not "recommended". Current threshold is 4+ cores & 8+GB memory. (Matches our Steam recommended spec.)
    [Server] The server is 64-bit only. Due to memory restrictions and a number of other technical roadblocks, there is no 32-bit server version. (This only affects Windows, since Windows is the only platform that still supports a 32-bit client)
    [Server] The spec that the server looks for to run locally is the same as our recommended spec - 8GB of RAM and quad core. You can override this by setting Local Server to "On", which means it will try and use a local server for everything - except online hosted games, which still go through Uber's online server management.

    [System Editor] Planets now look exactly the same in game as they do in the system editor.
    [System Editor] Metal spot placement now looks exactly the same in game as it does in the system editor.

    [UI] Spectator UI upgrades
    [UI] System editor UI polish

    Do we have what we need to change what team colors are available? If not, could you see about giving us the needed server scripts?

    Well I just finished up two mods that should be released in the next few days. That means I have time to get started with the server!

    Oh Noes!

    I had a download error while updating; when I hit verify again, it started unpacking and updating although it still said ~78/105. May try Replacing PTE with stable and starting over.

    Wait... I CAN launch the PA bin directly, so it's just an issue with the .app launch.
