Folks- Thanks for your patience! The patch is now ready and it is up to my quality standards. It's time for the world to play with it.
The big deal about this patch is unlimited building mode and capital ships (Mastermind Mode).
To all you who collected COOL POINTZ(TM), you are in luck. Cool pointz will grant you automatic Mastermind Rank, and some extra dollars.
For everyone else, the path to Mastermind will be the same as with Cool Pointz- Progress through the game a second time.
Mastermind Ranked players have access to Mastermind features in the editor, and can win money endlessly. There is really no limit to the size of ships, to the point that the engine struggles. Go crazy, kids!
