This one is the first release-candidate for our 6.0 release. In other words: this _is_ 6.0 (aside from the new Ancient Shadows music, that comes Friday) unless we get a report of a critical bug that must be fixed before the official release.
This one adds 25 champion-related achievements, fixes a bunch of unit description-text errors, and adds unique images for mkII through mkV of most champion module lines (thanks to HitmanN, again, for all the champion-module art!).
There’s also fixes to a few bugs that came to my attention since the last release, and a balance change to the champion-nemesis thing from the previous release.
Update: 5.097 hotfix (i.e. Release Candidate 2) is out to fix a bug in the last version that caused the available-modules buttons to not show on the ship-design screen at all. There’s always got to be something, I suppose.
Enjoy! And let us know if you find any problems!
This is a standard update that you can download through the in-game updater itself, if you already have 4.000 or later. When you launch the game, you’ll see the notice of the update having been found if you’re connected to the Internet at the time. If you don’t have 4.000 or later, you can download that here.
