On behalf of everyone at Stardock, Merry Christmas!
For those of you who are not familiar with the #elemental chat channel on Impulse (Impulse->Community->Chat and then /join #elemental) I've been making available little test builds for anyone who wants to try one made on my machine. Definitely not official but I was able to reproduce the crash some people had and worked on eliminating it as well as made some AI tweaks. Feel free to hang out with us on the channel during the holiday season. I'll try to put up some of the test versions on one of the Stardock servers for those who think betas are too official.
Hope you have a great day!
