There have been some major developments in the past...hour or so, as well as some new events posted. Here's the news.

Events
Event Date Description
Developer Chat 12/14 Chat with the developers of DarkSpace, or atleast one of them. Got questions or suggestions, then come to the "Developer Chat" room and ask away.
Pre Release Party 12/16 All DarkSpace players will receive 50,000 points of bonus prestige before we release DarkSpace. Make sure you account is created before this event starts, because the bonus will be applied only to existing accounts.
Darkspace Release 12/17 The servers will go down at 10:00AM CST for transition to pay-to-play and should be completed within 2 hours.

Development Updates:

New Structures: 3 new structures have been added: The Sensor Base, the Antisensor Base, and the Interdictor Base. Check out the Building Guide for more detailed information.
Fighters, AR Missiles: Fighters are now equipped with AR Missiles, which replace the old SABOT rockets. The missiles will track the target, but take longer (~30sec) to reload, and will still fire 3 rounds. However, they will not destroy planetary targets.
Ship Resources: For now, ship resources have been disabled, meaning you can choose any ship no matter the cost, if you have the required rank and/or badges.
Ship Selection Screen: Has been redone, and the interface section of this site will soon be updated.
