But first, here’s a screenshot of a massive map played by one of the testers! He’s playing a “Ludicrous” galaxy on his PC that is over 2000 light-years across. The stars are faint and I’m not sure you can see the arc of the circular galaxy near the right side.
Alpha 4.11 is now available. You can download the latest version from this link:

Remember that you can report bugs and discuss the game on Reddit at http://www.reddit.com/r/rotp
Game Errors – two errors occurring during Next Turn and another on the Races dialogue have been fixed.
Missile Base Upgrade Notice – you will no longer receive an errant upgrade completion notice when you complete upgrades on missile bases on the same turn that you research a new missile type.
Galaxy Map Flight Paths – now that the map control for flight paths has FOUR settings, you can now use a right-click to cycle in the reverse order. This makes it easier, for example, to toggle the yellow flight paths off (left-click) and then back on (right-click).
Tech Translations – in addition, I spent most of Sunday reworking how technology texts are handled in game. The purpose is to make life a lot easier for the translators, and players should see no change.
Also, that huge map from the screenshot came from a 100Mb save game file that I will be using to research and improve Next Turn times. After about 250 turns of play, his Next Turn times are an embarrassing 65s, but I’ve found the cause and hope to get it back under 10s.
