1) Thank you for all the work and support you give the game.
2) Can Mercs use the cash they gain to update their ships to a new design, to stay viable for the end game.
3) Can modders add mercs. - There seems too few for larger, more populated galaxies, or can mercs respawn for rehire as a tickbox option.
4) New Races - Do you plan to keep the number of races released roughly balanced for each ideology.
5) Any news on Steam Getting Shipset, Races and hopefully tech trees bundled together?
I don't have the expansion yet till tomorrow, sorry if any of these are obvious and covered, ignore them if they are.
