Fixed- Point Singularity Ruins didn't grant access to Point Singularity weapons because of a typo.

There is a growing importance in this mod for Theoretical research. As it is right now, all the 'extra' new mounts rely on theoretical research to discover and to advance in levels. There are also other components (and soon facilities) whose abilities will be improved with more theorectial research.

Example: Resupply Bases. The level of the RS will determine how much supplies and ordnance it will generate each turn. But the level of Logistics research will determine how much can be remotely distributed throughout the system. It'll be possible to have a resupply base that could distribute more than it can generate in a turn or vice versa.

All of the mounts in this version have their abilities depend on the level of the mount. I am toying with the idea of changing it so that the abilities of some mounts will instead be more determined on the theorectical research than the Mount level.

Hey Bearclaw, as a point of information, where do you have 5.06 hosted at? I only see 5.04 on se.net. Haven't checked se5.com but they never have anything anyways. Oh, I guess I could check the tracker, that would be convenient Wink

Not available just yet

Another week I suspect. I've got a couple bugs to track down first. I'm trying to avoid the mistake I did with 5.04 and released it without realizing that Infantry have no way of moving in combat whatsoever! Ooops.

On that note, so far, it looks good. I'll be throwing 5.06 to a group of testers I've got to double check some stuff then release it to everyone else. My target is 1 week from Saturday but it will defently be before the end of April and that's only if anything seriously wrong shows up.
