    Yes that would be fine, thank you.

    Any chance of getting me the U2 requirements for Nem & saturn  flagships and all the U3 info?  I am happy to put in all in a chart and will also post a list of what each upgrade rewards you with for reference.


    I m going to edit the post with new info as it becomes available - just about to edit it and add some forum links for further info also.

    Thanks for work GT2610!
    Apart from knowing how many upgrade kits (and buildtime) every level takes, it would be nice to know what every upgrade does.

    I am doing a chart for what rewards we get also :)

    Just trying to decide on best way to present it all with out it looking complicated

    In reality a chart for each hull that contains all the info for that hull would be good but then we end up with a lot of charts....... and more to come I guess.

    Just trying to keep it as simple as I can but will get something posted soon. Can always change it later if I am not happy with the format.



    EDIT - Post updated with all the info I have so far :)

    This thread should be pinned, in the general forum. Not hidden away in player guides. Even with the re-direct, thats just going to slip of the first page within the week.
    Please pin this thread where players can find it easily.
    What me cynical, no, never, maybe!!, well I have been playing kix games for over 3 years.
    Remember its just a game, your life doesn't rely on you being the best.
    Sectors visited :- Who cares, been to some killed some stuff moved on.
    Hulls :- Yep got some and some have guns and stuff

    Because there was no money to be made from doing it.

    COMING SOON: Upgrade Kits - Inventory
    I added a tab in the limited Intel Lab where we can view our inventory of Upgrade Kits in detail.
    We can now see how many kits we have and if we need to obtain more, thus eliminating waste.

    Threads pinned in General Discussion are reserved for update notes and discussions. Unfortunately, I won't be able to pin this thread there. I've cleaned up this section's pinned threads and put it at the top of the pinned threads. I feel this may be better in garnering attention for a majority of players instead of potentially lost as a regular thread in General Discussion.

    If you mean this slot - it unlocks at U2 - CIC slot and U2 also unlocks the 2 free CICs that go on it
