hey AWESOME! They just released Rebellion patch 1.1 today, 40 new maps, many of them designed for more competitive play, bunch of tweaks and extra balancing, and changes to the corvettes to make them effective en mass against titans... COOL! Will be playing tonight again hopefully, this game has had consistent play time here on LAN, it really is the best RTS right now

all 3 of us play on steam BTW, if anyone is willing to challenge us... we're not THAT great so if you are half decent at Rebellion you could stand a chance

New DLC.

Not bad for only $5.

Forbidden Worlds

Quote:
The war between the loyalists and the rebels within the TEC, Advent and Vasari continues within the depths of Trader Space. Yet, this sector of the galaxy has far more worlds and far more history than any of the factions are aware. Survival forces each to expand into the unknown, discovering worlds of hazard, wealth, risk, and mystery. Most ominously, the Trader factions have been loathe to expand to these worlds due to the dark myths that surround them.

played our first game with DLC just now, 3v3 random:

-new planets are nuts. discovering our first Ferrous planet with SEVEN metal asteroids was quite a treat. none of us colonized any greenhouse, oceanic or barren worlds yet but they all look badass (we just don't know yet what their capabilities are).

-The biggest treat was the choice of planet specialization, I had my TEC homeworld at a population of almost 800 by end of the game, with room to go up to 1200... that planet alone was half of a 50 credit surplus income (huge!). Didn't use a single tradeport that game.

-Industrial planet specialization was great for late game forward shipyard planet, usually I would accomplish similar production rate with more than 3 shipyards and research for build rates (I was only using two and no research).

-didn't get to play with any noteworthy new techs that game, will be looking out for it next time. I didn't play my usual TEC pocket position (went mostly military).



edit: from reading on forums we found out the following about the new planets:

-barren planet has the most logistics slots in the game and can take high populations. very good planet type. considered somewhat OP which is a good thing since it currently adds a considerable control objective to maps which have one or more.

-oceanic planets have the ability to take a lot of social level upgrades (for increased population and growth rates). obviously also an excellent planet to own if its well positioned (or you have metal mining buffs)

-greenhouse planets have extra planet health (resistant to planet bombing)

-ferrous planets have extra metal asteroids and extra room for industrial level upgrades (ship production and trade income)
