I recently started a new game with the opt-in v4.2 (as the Iconians).
In the tech tree the tooltips now don't mention any of the resourceless weapons (like Mass Drivers rather than Pulse Cannons) and also suggest that kinetic weapons now use durantium rather than thulium.
However after researching pulse cannons I found that Mass Drivers were still there and are resourceless and than pulse cannons use thulium as previously.
I then used unlock in the cheat menu and see that the other resourceless weapons such as vulcanic drivers and triton torpedoes are still available (and that the kinetic weapons are still all thulium based).
So my question is whether there is an intention to change the weapon types - which would change the whole game considerably; or whether the tool tips have been redone and mistakenly amended?
I've just tried to verify the game files but at the moment steam is being bloody so I don't know whether that's an issue.
Anybody else noticed this and any comments?
