How is the dilithium node going to build. Will we be able to build it near a dilitium moon as we like, or will it be build where it fits into the structure?

Currently, the dilithium node is built at a specified location in the unicomplex. It is possible that with further testing this will be changed.

There are two minig stations in the complex. One that can accomodate approximately 5 miners (the original mining station could accomodate 3). The other mine has a much higher dilithium transfer rate and can accomodate a larger number of freighters.

However, these two mining stations will not be able to support the borg fully. Instead, you'd have to assimilate other players' mining stations :)

cabal, you are correct, the unicomplex is built in chunks or modules. It takes quite a bit longer than several minutes to build all modules, provided that you can keep up the dilithium and crew flow to support the construction.

The stand down button is actually aligned properly. If you look at the 3rd screenshot in the first post, you'll see how the panel looks like when nothing is selected. Note particularly the scaled down buttons scattered across the panel. When you select something, the "real" buttons appear above smaller versions of themselves.

In an effort to randomise the look of buttons, the stand down button was made the way that you see it in the screenshots.

The green shroud on the minimap is the same as the shourd on the strategic map. In fact, the game uses the same file for both.

Looks just like home to me. Great shot and great stuff altogether Mr V!
Flew in here 17 years ago, flew out 13. Back then early 20s, dreamin'. Now, late 30s, reminiscin'. Too bad there wasn't an Armada 3, except the Sins of a Solar Empire mod. But hell, at least there's that. *Shrugs*

Beside nice work on the unicomplix textures and design of it. Plus the resolution looks pretty cool.
