A new release is on the horizon - it's not version 9 yet, but version 8.2, with lots of fixes, balance changes, and useful features. It's currently in "beta" because there's so many changes. Download it, try it out, and let me know about any and all issues you encounter. :)

You may want to clarify that the update is in the beta tab (or maybe you did and I'm blind).
Also, the large map scale is awesome! If only I could zoom out a bit more...
Yeah, so if you're on Steam, you need to right-click on the game entry, go Preferences->Betas and select the beta. :)
The game of cat and mouse you can play when using AI on small vehicles that only have a suspendium missile is great!

Interception don't work!
It crashes when the combat's about to start, correct? Will fix in beta 2. :)
Have released beta 2, which should fix this.
So I noticed something interesting with the sawblades? Now that they have a new attack angle, and the attack distance is determined as a distance in front of the ship, this means it can attack a lot higher and lower than the blade can actually reach. So for example, a landship with a sawblade can hit an airship floating above it, with plenty of distance between them. (I did try getting a screenshot of this.)
Also: Hello forums.
Oh indeed, that's why they had such a limited angle. Going to reset it for the 8.2 release and tackle it again in the next version. Thanks for noticing and reporting!
