Re: [nbos] Astro3 Update (Beta)"Mike Oliver" Mon Dec 5th, 2011
I can't say I've given AS3 a really thorough challenge in its finished
form yet, but it loaded my Star Trek file (104,000 Kb) in fairly short
order, retained everything I had set up in the sector - including
political data and referee's notes and I could access and show all the
systems I had set up in the system display. The orbits and blazons were
all in place and looking good, likewise the routes which I have utilised
to indicate distances between systems rather than actual routes.
I'm going to try to find a few hours when I can give it a bit more of a
challenge and I'll let you know what I find.

Has anyone had any problems with this beta of the update? I'm hoping
silence means all the changes work as advertised. :-)
