The Founders edition will end, but I don't think that will happen before the end of the year.  We will be giving a heads up well before it ends so people can get in if they wish, it just won't stop one day without  notice.

 

If you contact sales@stardock.com, they would also be able to help you upgrade to the Elite. :)

I grabbed the Founder's Elite a while back. Had plenty of fun with GC1 and 2, but I can't wait for multiplayer to come.

New Dev Journal is up giving more insights on the Terran leader.

 

"The self-imposed exile Admiral D.L. Bradley led his fleet into has taken its toll on the once-friendly leader. Giving the order to turn tail and run from forces he knew would simply turn their guns on undefended Terran colonies cost Bradley dearly, and he is determined to make that sacrifice count.

 
Sixteen years have passed in our galaxy since the Terran First Fleet escaped into the pocket dimension that previously housed the Dread Lords. Sixteen years of the fleet being cut off entirely from the fate of the rest of the human race."

I had forgotten I ordered this, had a brief play of the alpha, liking the direction and as always for me all the research and tech options.  Looks like you are on the right track to balance it well between those that like micromanagement vs those who prefer to focus on combat, tech, diplomacy etc.  Keep it up, I won't spoil anything further for myself till launch or maybe the beta. 

 

I can't recall if there were weapons of planetary destruction in the last one but that was one of my fav things to try and research first in MOO3, please add them if possible :)

There was in the GCII expansions, and although it might not appear in the base game of GCIII, there will be something like that. :)

I loved GCII, but the one area that would bite me in the rear is forgetting to re-design and having an out of date fleet.

Is there plans to have "stock" auto update plans as well as the ship customization?

The beta is available now!  If you were a previous early Founder you can get your Steam keys from your Stardock account, and if you were Founder's Elite Steam should have updated with the beta. :)
