Ok so AE 1.5 is gonna be entirely different many of the ways we play will be different. The UI will be different including images(Hopefully renderings) of the buildings, defenses. It looks amazing though and in the next coming months we will get more information.

But on another issue..... 

I have been playing a huge amounts of X3 Terran Conflict love the game I wished astro empires made a 3D MMORPG like X3 Terran Conflict/EVE online fully functioning and unilateral universe that I could fly from one side to another that would be my dream as I love playing scifi videogames.
