      Time to new build (t) = Time to create build (cb) * Time to upload build (ub) * Time to validate build (vd) * Time for Chris to poke validators (pv) * Time to watch a boiling kettle (inf).

      surely t=(((cb+ub+vd+pv)*inf)*moan)

      where moan = whine*(demot+ven)

      moan= overall time lost due to detractors from message boards
      whine= sum of posts in forums wondering why it's not done yet
      ven= viciousness of said posts when deadlines that may only have been hinted at are not met
      demot= demotivation form reading comments on message boards.

      ttom154. Once Chris announces the new build, it's usually within the same day-period.

      Chris said on page 7 that he would upload the game "by tomorrow" even if the bug wasn't squashed by then. So I'm expecting a post by Chris shortly about it being uploaded and then waiting 1-2 days until the guys at Desura wakes up and validates the version.

      (note: the definition of a day when Chris uploads a new version is that the day doesn't end until he goes to sleep... so technically he can prolong "tomorrow" for an additional 72 hours. although he has never done that to my knowledge)

      It's up now. Would have been up earlier but my friends hauled me into the longest game of DOTA 2 I have ever played in my life.

      DOTA rules, but Xenonauts rules more.

      Thanx Chris.

      any idea if/when there will be new types of planes available. I think adding things like a refueling plane or an aew&c plane would add quite a bit more depth to the air combat. you could have the larger planes drop paratroopers, to allow for quick deployment to a battlefield that's far away.
      I was hoping for something the fighters would have to escort and defend the slower planes against attack when inflight.

      Yes, it's very obvious that the game crashes when you start ground combat. I'll make sure to avoid it.
