    The steam popup told me "Valve Test App xxxxxx", shouldn't that just be Planetary Annihilation?

    So when you say orbital radar removed, I take it you mean radar of other orbital units? Finally means the Deep Space is important now. Though I think the advanced orbital radar should include it (while also being a smidgen more expensive)

    I still think the new UI bar on the bottom would look better with a very minor opacity change.

    Great, the only glaring problem with this build is that you have removed the random system generator, I know you guys are improving it and all, but Its kinda a huge part of the game that cant just be removed from the MAIN build

    It's been removed for a few builds now I believe. That being said, it should be back somewhere around end of Feb, early March.

    Feel free to create the exact same random systems in the system editor in the meantime.

    Just out of curiosity, why is duat the only ranked map not being displayed in the system selection drop down, while there is pax by default? Or are they already listed by last used?

    Also disabled for spectators - those idle factory alerts are damn annoying, especially while casting :p

    Yes, this is quite vague and could maybe use rephrasing for us commoners.

    Just tested an 8 player ffa. Performance gotten worse for me ( sim was down on 6 or sometimes even 4). I also noticed an annoying micro stutter throughout the game and other players noticed it too btw.

    I'm going to put off my mods and see if it happens again. I'll keep you updated

    Take some screenshots of the server performance 'ctrl + p' tab so they can see what's hitting it.

    1) takes to long
    2) Thats not the point, because its pretty fun going in to a random system, and create a plan on the fly due to the terrain of the planet.

    technically modding in a simple "make rnd system" button should be possible pretty quickly.

    One of the mods I was using caused a client c rash, I think. I disabled some mods and had a crash free game so I assume so. Didn't note which mods i disabled though. Will check back later. But just a general headsup!
