It's not about the destination, it's about the journey. You journey is to your death, preferably by high-powered plasma torpedo volleys, if the armada of aliens known as 'the nomads' are to be believed. The nomads have no homeworld, they don't believe it's time to 'settle down' as a species. They are still looking to find the right planet, and killing time (and aliens) in the meantime. It's nothing personal you understand, it's just the way the nomads entertain themselves. Galactic genocide is their sport of choice.
The Nomads is the latest expansion pack for Gratuitous Space Battles. The Nomads are the oldest race in the known universe. They are just travelling from A to B, (although nobody now remembers where A was, or what they are heading to B for), and looking for a little 'exploding aliens' sport on their journey. The nomads are travelling through your part of space, and your homeworlds destruction is this weeks entertainment for them.
What The Pack does NOT contain:
Completely new gameplay modes, and major features that change how the game plays, any new AI orders... basically anything that is not listed in the list above. This is basically a data-pack with new ships, not a sequel or gameplay re-write.
How does this work with challenges and stuff?
If you install the expansion pack, then in future when you post challenges the game will have a little ticked checkbox which tags your challenge as having content from the nomads. That means only people with the expansion pack can play that challenge. If you aren't using any nomads ships in your fleet, you can un-tick that box and the challenge will work just as before. You will be able to download and play existing challenges with your nomads fleet no problem.
I bought the game from X, do I need to get the expansion pack from that site too?
No. It won't make any difference.
You are an evil media conglomerate and a greedy capitalist for releasing an expansion pack etc.
Unfortunately my landlord and the people who sell me food all demand I pay them in something other than GSB expansion packs (the fools!) so I have to exchange the packs for money. Plus I have to pay the artist and feed these cats.
Sounds awesome. I must have this immediately. let me buy it now!
