Uber's latest update for Planetary Annihilation includes more graphical settings as HDR, FSAA and resolution scaling become supported for the beta builds of the real-time strategy.

There's also a Raptor Commander now available to choose from, as well as a work-in-progress tutorial. They promise AI is "now even more evil" and capable of launching nukes.

Delta V Engines have been made 1/3 cheaper as part of game balance changes, making planet smashing more affordable for hardworking middle-income Commanders.

"A new Commander! Nastier AI! Cheaper engines! A tutorial! The latest update to Planetary Annihilation adds a ton of new features. Also, we've included a lot of cool optimizations and tweaks, in addition to balance changes," posted Uber.

? Support for HDR, FSAA, and Resolution Scaling - Like visuals? Great! If you want to pump up the graphical volume on the game, you'll need to turn these options on in the Settings menu.

? Raptor Commander - You saw this guy during the livestream, right? Raptor Commander is a brand new Commander. Choose it before a match by clicking on the Commander profile picture.

? Tutorial - Now players can view a little tutorial off of the main menu. This is a work-in-progress, as it'll be updated and enhanced down the line.

? Smarter AI - The AI is now even more evil. Oh! It can also launch nukes. Have fun with that.

? Cheaper Delta V Engines - This is one of the many balance changes we've made. Basically, Delta V Engines are now a 1/3 cheaper than what they were. Have fun smashing planets!

A very definite YES PLEASE to this game. I loved Total Annihilation, still one of the best games ever, and the mods just made it fabulous. I watched the video on the game site, and I just cannot wait to play this game.

This is why certain people are silly for judging a game this early in development. All sorts of stuff gets changed, even fundamental mechanics and engine stuff.
