A new scenario has been released called "Strike Early". This is a bit tougher scenario where you need to build an army of warships as soon as possible. You can view information about the new scenario and see the leader board here: http://vgaplanets.nu/leaderboard/scenario/2
We'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who has been trying and testing Alpha Release 3 you've found a lot of bugs and made some great suggestions on how to improve the interface. There are two areas we particularly feel can be improved - ship building and selling supplies. We will work on new designs for these once we have a complete working game.
In the mean time, we have just released two more major pieces of functionality along with the new scenario: Ship Towing, Ship Intercepting and the Firecloud Warp Chunnel. Please give these a try and test.
Lastly, we're happy to say that work on the Combat/VCR system is now underway...
