Erik-

Just a reminder from a few other threads, please make sure there are clear directions either in the readme or otherwise posted giving folks the official word on what to do to create a clean install (including the necessity to start/run each iteration before installing the next patch or expansion).

Many users of prior expansions already have mods installed which (due to the current usage of the theme folder) by their nature override default files as well as have files in the theme folder. I assume it would be a good idea for anyone to start off Shadows with a clean install to ensure the proper default files are present before they start using mods again.

Is there going to be a pre-launch announcement about pricing/specials?

Please wait until I post here, especially if you want the promotional bundle pricing. It's about to all go live and I don't want anyone caught in the middle as setting it live tends to be spread out over 15 minutes with pieces going live here and there.

Shadows is live though on its own and $19.99 is the correct promotional pricing for that, so if all you want is Shadows you should be fine now.

Regards,

- Erik

I'm confused. When store suggested me to bring original game, Shakturi and Legends I had only seen DW original and 2 Shakturi. Please, fix it.

^Looks to be just a wrong graphic. If you select both Shakturi items, in your cart, you should see 1 Shakturi and 1 Legend...

We'll get that fixed, the bundle pages are the last part to be setup, reviewing those now.

Meaning a saved game? No, Shadows only works with new games started under Shadows.

Any news on when a modding guide will be out for Shadows? I couldn't find anything regarding one so I figured I'd ask.

Am I not supposed to be able to select Return of the Shakturi story events if I'm playing as a pirate?

Are the story events something I want enabled as a pirate faction?

Playing as a Pirate does exclude the ROTS story, but not the base Distant Worlds story. ROTS represents an alternate timeline in this case, which is the one you as a Pirate are trying to avoid. Neither the Ancient Guardians nor the Shakturi much like pirates, so it would not end well.

If you play as a pre-hyperspace Empire, however, you can start in the Age of Shadows and work your way through all the storylines. Only the Pirates cannot continue all the way through the Shakturi storyline, but they can do the others.

Thank you very much! After I get some sleep I'm starting up a new game.

Keep those expansions coming and multiplayer too (please even if you do it last don't care do want).

I just bought the game and it runs well. My only problem is the text resolution. I have read the other forum posts about it and I wanted to know if a fix was coming or if there is a mod to make them larger. I play on a large TV and even at the lowest resolution it makes it easier to read but makes the game look worse.
