This one has a laundry list of fixes and tweaks to it, including a few new lobby and settings options that may interest you.
It also continues to improve the ships that have been doing "well" in the Worst Unit polls. An old favorite ship of mine, the Teleport Battlestation, has been one of those that has gotten the buff this time around. Those have been tricky forever, basically, because they tend to be either overpowered defensive powerhouses, or expensive bulky things that don't really do enough damage to warrant their cost. Here's hoping this brings them a lot closer!
Also fixed in this version was a bug with the Dyson Sphere that was causing it to basically take a vacation in the prior version. Now it will be back in full force, so watch out for that.
This is a standard update that you can download through the
in-game updater itself, if you already have 4.000 or later. When you
launch the game, you'll see the notice of the update having been found
if you're connected to the Internet at the time. If you don't have 4.000 or later, you can download that here.
