Where are you in development?  When can we see an Alpha build?  Are you using SFC game rules or something else?

I have more questions later but I'll get to it later if someone doesn't beat me to it.

Will this include seeking weapons and attrition units so we can mod it into an SFBish game?

Win 7 to run, but Win 8 or later is supported and tested om Win10.
Specs are determined from final game, I have tested on Win 7 and 10, 6 Gig ram, Nvidea GX700

how does Strategic movement work?

How are weapon arcs setup?

How does the difference between warp and impulse work?
