You moving into major changes without ever having done an official release it looks like?

Get a science ship on the planet, pause, select it, click the ARS tab, think.
Unpause, get out of dodge
Um, OK then. I think I figured out what the Dyson is being converted into.
I will honor Keith's wishes (read, not spoil his fun) and not spoil it for you guys, but I will say it involves what I previously thought to be a hilarious gimmick.
BTW, the chat message does spawn, but thanks to the fact that the "recent chat messages" on the main game screen box does not auto-scroll to the bottom, it's easy to miss.
Since there seems to be a bit of random AI War fixing going on, can I shamelessly pimp this issue that I posted almost a year ago? (Wow, a year ago? Time flies, etc.) It's driving me crazy once again in my latest game since I have a botnet golem that I'm using to make legions of zombies. Unless I'm missing it, there is literally no way to get the galaxy map to show just my ships. It wants to also show every single zombie as if it were my ship. Which is a problem, when I want to know where the ships are that I can actually give orders to. Can zombies be flagged as allies, instead of my ships? Oh please oh please oh please?
The problem is, even in Chess you can do whatever you want as long as you obey the rules of the games. This doesn't seem to be the case in AI War. I can try alot of strategies, and then getting punished vicious for doing so. From what I've read it all comes down to engage the AI as less as possible skipping as many planets as possible and maybe neutering some.
To both of these I have the same response, and it goes along with what Chris said. Sure, in chess you CAN do anything within the bounds of the rules, but, there are any number of strategies that if you try them against a good player, you'll be crushed, and they just aren't viable strategies. They only time you have any chance of winning against them is to play on a lower level, or against a weaker chess player, as the case may be.
