Just put it in the main discussion area ... so other people know about it.

By the way, dreadnoughts need one fleet supply point to spawn, if you don't have this at the time (as it is normally on automatic) then the clock and antimatter is reset ... and you have to wait again (until cooldown has expired and antimatter is recharged). Unfortunately I can't do anything about this.

I've uploaded R2 which includes the Norlamins. I will release it in a day or so.

With the additional content in Rebellion each race takes quite a lot of work to get right. So at this stage I would say it takes about one month per race.
