So after many years and many people asking, I am working on an update for Dark Nova 4. v4.30 is in the Works!

What I need from people is suggestions and fixes. I've already gone through the bug list sticky thread posted here as well as some suggestons/feedback from PBW DN4.29 games. But if there is anything else, please let me know!

Oh, were you going to add racial noncombat hulls as well? Transports, colonizers, carriers, tugboats, that sort of thing...
