Awakening of the Rebellion 2.7 is the upcoming Version and its a massive Update and Improvement then the actual release Version 2.6. The AI is almost rewritten and will be a challenge as ever before There are new Story Events and reworked existing ones. All Space and Ground-Units are updated and/or replaced with new Models/Textures. New Soundeffects and Music-Tracks, a New Galaxy Map that is almost Canon and new Space and Groundmaps.
ThatOneBullet has lead our team's effort in teaching the AI how to save fleets after they get stranded. Before they didn't do that and the AI was not capable of using those units. Hopefully, the AI will make good use of this new trick its learned. Skynet AI
