We are aware of this issue and are looking into it, if it is registered the download can be found on the Members Home Page. Armada should appear near the top of the list, and the last column 'Downloads' should have the link.

Andrew...the link is not there on the Members home Page.  I see Armada and the indication that the beta patch is available.  There is a link that says [digital].  However, clicking on the link takes me back to the home page and there is no download.  What does a guy with a registered copy have to do to get a beta patch around here?

Can someone please do something to make the download available at an alternate location.  This is really frustrating. The patch has been available on impulse for over a week and available here for close to that long in beta form.  I should be able to access the patch.

Hmmm. The link for the beta patch appears to be working again. Not sure what the issue was.

I'm getting this as well. It shows up as a medium ship, and appears in the build list after I've upgraded a surface shipyard to a small orbital shipyard.

The patches for this game have really helped bring it into it's own. I picked this game up right when it came out and I tinkered with it for a bit but it never really grabbed me. With these last sets of patches, I decided to go back and try it again and I'm really really enjoying it. The auto-manage for the pop transports is a godsend.

Now I see that MP capability is coming and I'm really looking forward to getting my friends into this title so that we can play together.

Do we know what else is at least tentatively planned for the expansion?
