Nice work! I'm curious as to whether you used a click-count or volume-downloaded on that, though. I had to try five different mirrors to get one that was over 150KB/s. Sure, I waited years for this moment, but I felt another week downloading was impossible to endure.

With such dedication and your "Labor of Love" to remake the best WC, it was just a matter of time before the good news spread out. I wonder what EA is thinking about this success? Although you don't ask for a dime, like many others I will gladly donate once you will accept donation. Contrary to what big publishers were thinking about space sims, we had always believe the genre is still well alive and just needed the right game( and FREE!) to give a new kick for the industry to take notice.

with a lot of luck 100k
At this point, unfortunately, I have to say that we have pretty much proven that a full-budget sci-fi spacesim has no market. At this point, even if we had made 20bucks pure revenue per downloaded copy (which is not even remotely likely) we wouldn't even have payed for our estimated expenses.
