    Yes, the time is near. Not quite right now. A few things have to be done first. They will be available on iDisk and MacGamefiles.com, and ambrosiasw.com also. But anyways,



    Do discuss and have much rejoice in #nova via irc.ambrosiasw.com

    It will be released sometime between the 14th and the 18th.

    The official word from Andrew is that Escape Velocity Nova will be released on Monday!



    Check Ambrosia's web site for mirrors or just get it off your iDisk in Apple's software folders. The download will be about 80 MB. Full registration will cost US$30, which is sorely underpriced for a quality product like this.



    Yay!

    If it does come out tomorrow, i assume that the servers will be rather busy. Which option will most likely be the fastest?

    I'm tempted to believe that Apple has the most band width, but idisk always seems very slow. Perhaps this will be a good opportunity to try the new version of speed download.

    Well, I'd probably say that iDisk would be the fastest. Ambrosia has supposedly leased out some more bandwidth for their servers to try to cope with the onslaught of mass downloads.



    I've already bought my copy. :cool: EV Nova uses the new "expiring" registration system but also has a lock so you can't modify the game data files or use plugin unless the app is registered.



    I also don't like the current icon for Nova; it's too, well, square. I've already made a replacement if anyone is interested.

    In case you haven't already noticed, the mirrors are UP!



    I'm downloading at about 100 K/sec... only 6 minutes left! Joy!

    If you could make the ship super imposed on NOVA that would be cool.. too much text in you r version imo. I also dont know what the original looks like. O rmaybe JUST the ship... boh



    DAMMIT why did my iBook have to die now that Nova is finally out!!!! AGGGGGHHHH

    BAAAAAHAHAHAHA!!

    NOVA ROCKS!



    I was up 'til 7 AM playing this thing. Mmmm mmm... It comes ith a *great* tutorial for beginners. I'm still waiting on my registration number though.



    Regarding the icon, this is what the default looks like:







    Yeah, I'm probably gonna take of the "ESCAPE VELOCITY" text and have it just say "NOVA".
