I would like to thank everyone for their input on my poll.
I have weighed the community's feelings with my own (I was leaning that way) and I believe we have a method.
I took the liberty of coding the units in this manner yesterday.
So far, it works (about) perfect for Empire, and about perfect for Rebels.
Consortium has a few bugs, and the squadrons xml refuses to acept any changes.
other than that, (oh, and corruption tactical maps not loading ???:-( ) its pretty much set. For now. I will update the buglist (yes, there is one under 'Articles') to bring everyone up-to-date.
The buglist will now only show 1.0 errors.
The beta will include a few features of the GC, but it wil be rife with bugs.
Other than that, comments welcome.
