I actually just wet my pants :(
I am Nic and I love to play games - the more unique the game concept is, the more I am up to buy a game and support the developers with my ideas.
If you want to watch my gameplay videos you do find them on YouTube: http://fwd.nicmd.de/ytng

Just to clarify, when you say we can help play on Tuesday, will this be some closed server testing deal, or will it just be released publicly as a beta version?

If it's like previous major version releases, it will be opt-in beta in Steam.

Holy crap this all looks amazing! I'm starting to think that, for once, the hype behind a video game release might be understated!

EDIT: Rocket research is a brilliant idea!

Cheesus freakin crust. It's like you're releasing a standalone expansion pack / sequel at this point. I was gonna ask you if you could a release a "Last XP compatible version" branch to steam (Age of Empires 2 HD has something similar) that people like me can use when they're occasionally trapped with an old XP machine and suffer boredom. However, I'm having second thoughts just by the sheer amount of fundamental additions to the game. I don't think anybody will be able to go back a version after this patch hits. There is simply too much they would miss!

In 400 hours of gameplay I have launched one rocket total, and it was totally not a automatic one.
Now I can finally look foward to automate rocket launching as it brings back a kind of resource!

Is the alien tech dead? As it was another one we couldn't automate as it involved actively hunting them.
