You see the recent announcement for the next BattleTech paid DLC? Adding a whole 5 new mechs to the base game! Whilst RogueTech alongside using the Community Asset Bundle adds more than 1,600 mechs into the game (if you include variants), and hundreds of different vehicles including aerial craft.

Yes, I don't really see the point of buying the DLC as it doesn't add anything not already in Roguetech and the new weapons sound unbalanced.

Time for a song! It's been a long road, getting from there to here. It's been a long time, but my time is finally near.

I know it wasn't that popular, but I really liked that theme :)

Motorhome? Nice. You deserve any and all enjoyment, after all you've created a 4x game that simply doesn't have a serious rival on the market (and it's free too).
I myself finally did what I've always wanted and bought myself a VR kit, pedals, new thrustmaster joystick and gas-stick. Been enjoying IL2 Battle of Stalingrad flight simulator a lot with them.

Clearly the best date for Steve to release C# Aurora is my birthday.  #:-]

Star Trek themes shouldn't have lyrics. They broke that rule, but they made a really good opening.

So while I don't normally commit to release dates, one way or another I will have something released before the end of March 2020. With any luck it will be a little sooner than that, assuming nothing major comes along to interfere, but that is now my target date.


My 30th birthday is March 31, 2020. Thanks for the gift.  ;D

Aurora's 30th birthday isn't much after that.  #:-]

Wow. I don't know if that means the game is old, I'm somehow still young, or both.

I exaggerate for effect.  Aurora is about 20 years old at the moment.

The popular stereotype of the researcher is that of a skeptic and a pessimist.  Nothing could be further from the truth! Scientists must be optimists at heart, in order to block out the incessant chorus of those who say "It cannot be done. "

Actually got some programming done this evening and should do some more over the weekend. Hope to get a fiction update done within the next couple of days.

I'll be fine for another year as Fm2020 is out and season start again in March with preseason for my club (the real one) which I decided to start earlier this year in late Jan. Will be busy till September 2020; hopefully, will get a beta by then. I am still enjoying a new save on 7.1 that after almost 100 years in-game is surprisingly not taking that long to process turns.

I am sure Steve is doing something very special otherwise he wouldn't take that long. Also now the community is much larger than 10 years ago (when I started) and the debug phase will be much faster and smoother allowing him to concentrate on gameplay and UI improvements.
