Wednesday: AI Levels and SOPA

Wednesday: AI Levels and SOPA

I’ve just fixed the “AI Level 3” crash, and I’ve also added AI Level 4, for the truly insane and people running quantum computers.  These will be in the patch.


I’ve also added a couple of new Extermination map generator settings.


We haven’t actually blacked out for anti-SOPA, but we support it whole-heartedly.  Here’s a message from my esteemed colleague:


Mode 7 would like to express our support for all of those protesting against SOPA and PIPA today.

We believe that this legislation could threaten the forms of communication which allow us to act effectively, both as a company and as individuals.

As a final note from me: freedom of speech is the freedom which leads to all other freedoms.  Do we really want to risk giving all that up to stop teenagers pirating films?  No thanks.  And this is coming from someone whose product is pirated a lot.

    Is the update coming for Mac Steam version as well? I’m currently quite confused if my Steam FS version regularly updates or not, and I would hate to miss all these awesome new features. If not, is there a way for me to manually update the game when it’s ready?

    The update will be coming to all versions. On Steam, your version will update automatically.
