When will the new universe start and what will it be called?

The name of the Universe is likely to be 'Hired Guns'. We'll make an announcement with additional information as soon as we select the launch date internally.

Can you explain what you mean by "Hired Guns"?

Is that the name of the new universe or the style of play?
Is this an SFC Universe and what will the speed be?
Will there be vacation mode or Dip mode or just P markers for purchase?

We need info...
Pretty please.

This is a new SFC universe.  Discussion was buried in Topic: Any news on when/if there will be a T6?

We're still finalizing all of the features that will make it into the new Universe, but I expect 6 new ships and multiple new game mechanics.

Basic battle mechanics will be the same...

However, how you obtain some of the ships will be changed.

That may be why it's called “Hired Guns”

All of the older ships will be present.

It will probably be the same speed as Conquest. It will have Territories, but they will be nothing like the ones used in Conquest, and it will have NPCs.

And based on what I remember being said before about all future permanent universes, I would expect it not to have (v) or (d) mode, and for the newbie protection also to work the same as Nova & Conquest.

That pic suggests to me that there might be some mechanics alterations.

No "might" about it. In reply #3 Matt said there would be mechanic changes.

No he didn't. Reply #3 wasn't even Matt, and in neither of his responses did he say anything about mechanics. Zarchne quoted some stuff.

Vastet, please reread the Zarchne's post again. In particular, the first quote from me. Read it carefully. Don't assume you're always right.
