Brilliant! Thank you so much.

Thank you, Daniel. I ordered Unity from Wargame Vault.

After reading through the rules a couple of times I feel like Unity is more like Admiralty refined than my initial feeling that it was a blend of AE and Nova.
To me that's a good thing.
A couple of things were familiar enough that I had to re-read them a couple of time to appreciate the subtle changes that have made them more elegant. I had more than one "Aha" or light-bulb moment reading through things.

This release has got me to blow the dust off of a couple of projects that I started back in AE that never got off the ground quite the way I wanted in Nova.

Without having played a game yet I still feel like this is the best version of Starmada yet, drawing from the design lineage of its predecessors in all the right ways.
I don't usually say this to people who take my money for a product, but thanks Dan :D
Cheers,
Erik

Got an email regarding delivery. Does this mean we'll soon be getting the physical versions, or was it simply in relation to the release of the new zip file with four sections?

The page count of the pdf is 140 (Wargamevault). The table of contents (demo pdf) states 86 pages.
So what is the content of the other ~50 pages? SSDs for ex. ships?

Yes, 48 ships from five different universes (according to Dan...) :)

1) You should have received an "order received" notice from PayPal. Once the book is shipped, you will receive a second notice.

2) Yes; the total page count is 140; the TOC stops at 86 because that's where the ship displays begin. 48 of those, and then 5 pages of blank ship records and a sheet of B&W markers.

Sadly, no Regeneration at this time.
