Automatic download failed for me (from 1.8b3.3). Restarting the game does not trigger the download again, trying manual update.

Erebien fortress looks great. The way the station weapons fire from the 'towers' is excellent.

The blue giant star in Contemplation Point looks great.

Minor: Although &unidAncientRacesVol1; has been updated to API 43 and 1.0 Alpha 7, the VOTG &unidExtension; in VaultOfTheGalaxy.xml is still API 42/1.0 Alpha 6. No idea if this matters, just bringing it to your attention.

The blue star/circular hit effect of the Cryson heavy disruptor looks awesome.

Viewing the background images I noticed that InorganicEnvSpace.jpg and MetallicEnvSpace.jpg seem to be identical. Same size, same dimensions and they look the same.
CoreSpace.jpg looks really good.


Many thanks for 'unvEntity'. Much easier than looking up unids manually.
And 'scrGetScreen' is much more helpful now. More thanks.
