Release Build 80187 – Galactic War saves and AI improvements

Following on from the initial release of save/load last month comes the latest Planetary Annihilation patch from Uber Entertainment. Less dramatic this time, with only a minor balance tweak. Instead the focus is on implementing save/load in Galactic War, so if you’re in the middle of a fight for the death you no longer have to restart it just because your kids woke up. There are also some AI improvements in this release too, along with neural net updates so it properly compensates for things like changes to the ways bombers drop bombs.

Some additional changes from the PTE, such as new maps, didn’t make it into release. The expectation is they will remain in PTE and be subject to further testing.

Any feedback on this release should be left for Uber in this thread.
