ive also come here to find out why my game is updating, i thought it was redownloading the full game again by mistake somehow so ive paused updating whilst i preload kingdoms of Amular ready for unlock later.

I am also wondering what this is about. Hopefully we can now fly Capital Ships?

Please be true. Or at least transport ships and get trading a buff.

Indeed. And by the size of it, it must be some new content.

There's not even a mention of any update on the starwraith website, lame. That's about what I'd expect for support from this game, pretty ty. Can't believe they wouldn't even tell you what was updated.

It's no update. Only the main exe, the readme and data file were touched.

Don't be angry, it seems that evochron is one man project.

thanks xrogan. I thought it was strange having an update the same size as the main game.

since the .exe file is always updated as a whole, even if only one single character is changed within the file itself, it wouldn't be _that_ strange.

i honestly hope there are more updates for this game. little things like more parts for your ships and other buildables. perhaps different classes of ships to pilot. but i understand how difficult it is to code let alone get the 3d models to work with everything and look cohesive.
this has fast become my favourite space flight sim over X and the rest and it would be great to see more content released in updates (preferably not DLC)
