When you start the client, big update button is shown, just have to choose that

Sweet. Kinda hard to miss that big blue button. Haven't had a chance to fire it up since I got it.

Here's a moderately successful US Battlecruiser -- named (wierdly enough) USS Saratoga:

This one seems to be in trouble.

At the beginning of the year, the roadmap for 2021 included four core updates and patches:

    Core patch 1 - Core of campaign including Custom Battle saves

    Core patch 2 - Crew and officers

    Core patch 3 - R&D and Tech Progression

    Core patch 4 - New nations and map expansion

They never promised specific dates for any of the patches, but indicated that they would flow throughout the year.

Here we are almost in August and the first core patch is yet to be released. Furthermore, there have been no development updates regarding the roadmap and no word from the developers since May, when a small patch was released.

Some news from the top would be nice. The natives in the official forums are starting to get restless.

^ Is there a (rumored) relation with the Game Labs acquisition by the Stillfront Group ?

Nothing official and I haven't really even read any speculation on this in the forums, but it is hard for me to not draw a correlation. Although, the acquisition is pretty recent and I would say they were already pretty behind on the roadmap at the time they got acquired.

Shit, this sucks...I am holding out hope that we will see a full campaign eventually. But the silence is deafening. IF completed this would be my go to game for years. I have had fun with it in just the mission mode and even started developing some decent skills :/

I picked this one up last year, but put it aside to let it grow a bit more.  Its been awhile since I even checked their website/blog.

I did just go look at the Steam forums and a dev responded just yesterday about Development Status, so looks like things are not dead.  O0

Nice.  This is one of those games I enjoy watching on YouTube - particularly when it's one of those "what if," designs.

Certainly need to pick this one up at some point.

Me too.  I would love to get this but I was waiting for it to land on Steam.

It's not supposed to land on steam until after the 4th core update has been released, so you could be waiting awhile.

That being said, who knows what they'll end up doing.
