    The patch must be live. Got a notification from steam.

    Looks good.

    Just one question: Is any of this going to result in decreased turn and screen transition times? That's by far the biggest issue for me right now, and I'm not exactly running a wimpy machine.

    I guess I'll start a new game and find out.

    Hrm - I don't see anything about the Swarm Queen issue [where once you get a Swarm Queen encounter it never really ends - eg: 5+ swarm queen attacks in a single system over and over again]. I don't know that this was on their known issues list though [I thought I had read somewhere here that it was]. Other fixes look good - I do have a question though [this may be my ignorance of some mechanics]: What is the point behind retrofitting stations if you cannot choose specific weapon types to go on the station? Or am I just missing which tech tree unlock allows that?

    My immersion pack content is suddenly missing. Using steam.
    Anyone else?

    Edit:
    Scratch that, trying it one more time seemed to work. Not sure
    why, wasn't anything I did different.

    Any performance improvements

    Anybody got any feedback on performance? Turn times? Screen transitions?

    i havnt gotten far enough into a game to tell yet. Turn 112 in a 2 player map and everythings working fine so far except a crash on turn 51 when the Ghost ship attacked and destroyed a colony on the same turn the construction fleet finished a station.

    edit: now im on turn 170 and its taking 10 - 12seconds between turns and some minor delays for screen transitions. That's about the same as before the patch at around this point in the game.

    I've bought the game last year and now half a year later, the graphical issues with the refraction shader on translucent materials causing z-sorting issues for the backfaces so they render as black stuff on top of everything else are not getting any kind of attention. I'm refusing to play the game when the only alternative is to have silly holes in all of your models.

    Have you tried posting a big report? Afaik that particular bug was killed two months ago, if you still experience it that you are probably one of the few who do.

    My Mega Q Freighters now only generate as much trade as a normal freighter.

    That's because unlike regular mega freighters half of their hull is filled with weapons.

    From what I remember the answer was unless there is a solution for all affected GPUs it is not being looked at. From a quick search it's apparently related to the fact that this is a DX10.1 game instead of DX10, which is why my GPU apparently is unable to do certain shader ops, I suspect. Well that is a bummer, because it is not stated anywhere that you need DX10.1.....

    Not sure that is entirely true. The driver for your card may not support it. I run SotS 2 on an ATI HD 4670 1Gig card, which works just fine with SotS 2 (no graphical issues at all). However the drivers for it work up to DX11 although the Card itself is only rated for DX10. What Graphics care are you using?

    Thanks Warder.
