Gratuitous Space Battles Add-on Details

Cliffski’s Blog has more outlook on plans for the first expansion pack for Gratuitous Space Battles, Positech's game of tactical (and gratuitous) space combat. Here's a bit on plans for the add-on, and a patch to precede it:

There will be an expansion pack for GSB, and it’s still a little way off, but I did some work on it today so it’s fresh in my mind. Before I release it, there will be another mainstream GSB patch, mainly to improve the modding support to tidy things up and make mods more manageable. After the pack, who knows what’s next?

Anyway… current plans for the pack are to introduce a new race to the game. It will have the same variety of ships as the other races. The ships will also have a few race-specific modules, and some quite drastic ship bonuses. It was a relief to work out that ship bonuses can be negative, meaning this new batch of ships will have weak shields, weak armor, and very strong hulls. My plan is that these ships can take a sustained battering and rely on hull strength and repair systems. The new weapons will be kinetic bullet-firing stuff, like gauss guns / autocannons. I’ve been sorting out the sounds and visuals for them today. There will also be two new scenarios featuring the new race, and it will likely come pre-unlocked so if you buy it you can play with that race immediately.

You're awfully accepting of illiteracy. 6-7th grade level? I'm curious where that statistic comes from. That's... wow.

Oh, and you used a period at the end of "By the way." A colon or possibly a dash (not to be confused with a hyphen) might have been more appropriate.

It's based off the average level at which newspapers are written at actually. The more affluent newspapers get, the higher the level gets but even that doesn't get much higher, I think around gr.10 or so. But I'm also basing that off Canadian stats. Mileage may vary in the US. :p

I could have used either, but I preferred to end a short sentence with a period instead, it's still correct. I also could have used an exclamation point.

Brain go melty(and a bit malty) at exam time anyway.
