    This really is the biggest update yet.
    How exactly did you reach that conclusion? I would argue that both 1.5 and 2.0 were both bigger, 1.5 got more new ships, 2.0 got actual new content.

    I am not selling only reacting to the fact that someone ask for 2.4 while his bug report from last year is stil not resolved
    And if this is about selling then they should begin with patching the game

    Could someone post a link to the "Cruise Control" video (I assume it's meant to be a video). The newsletter links just go to a screenshot.
