I've never understood the complaints about the game's aesthetics, but if this is what it takes for people to recognize this masterpiece then go for it.

I really hope they change the resources into diamon, trapezoid, and hexagonal pieces.

Wow. That is TERRIFIC news. I've been used to WizKids leaving games hanging out to dry (e.g. SEAL Team Flix) so it's a real pleasure to see this one is getting some TLC.

LOL. So this has sat on my shelf unplayed for almost two years. Something about a first play has always seemed pretty intimidating. I guess I'll be grabbing this to also sit on my shelf unplayed ?

My biggest hope is redesigned artwork for the ships. If it is well done I will throw copious amounts of money at this.

I really hope it is well done.

Play the one you have, sell it, buy the new one (assuming you like the game).

Most of the interior art was just fine I thought. I have never ran into someone having trouble figuring out what was on the cards. For the most part it's the understanding of what is an upgrade vs what are conversions.

The box was cheap and looks it.

I do hope some upgrade for the resources is in order. Maybe some tetrahedrons, diamonds and hexes?

I like the original art on the races--the main thing that I would like is actually a set of tracks for research teams and colonies, and an actual turn tracker rather than a series of cards to flip. I find that the latter in particular often causes confusion about when the game is about to end among new players, and about how much techs will score.

My IDEAL would be if the nicer resource tokens (hexes for the ultratech, and shards of 2 or 3 triangles for the big and small resources) that were made by one of the developers were available as an upgrade....

So is there an upgrade pack available or is this one of those "hey, I'm glad you liked our game, now buy it again!" sorts of situations?

Honestly I'd love upgraded art, but the resource tokens are fine. The game simply doesn't hit the table enough for me to justify buying it again for full price.

I'd say that those new cards are not anymore clear than the previous edition. I'm guessing that wasn't the goal.

Man, I wish the art was cleaner, like one of the versions I saw someone had made here on the forums. Sigh.

It looks beautiful, and I would be very excited to buy this if I didn't already own the orginial. That being said, after looking at the pictures I think I will end up just sticking to my copy. The box art is amazing, which initially had me thinking I would be on board with buying the new version. The updated graphic design across the board is appealing, but not enough so to move the needle. Everything else appears to be more or less the same. I was hoping for a fully revamped art design, including races, ships and other tokens, as well spruced up components (tokens, resources and VPs).

I look at Sidereal like a splotter game. The components look simple and unimpressive in abstract. Once you get the game going however you realize they are just enough to facilitate the game without getting in the way. The simple functional tokens do what they need and communicate information quickly without any frills to help support the gameplay without distracting from it.

The box cover is rubbish mind you, does nothing to sell the game inside.

Actually, second-look hot take I like the old card design better than the new ones.

The new cover is really good though.

I'll be curious to see if there are functionality improvements, gameplay changes, and/or new material.

Might buy it anyway if it's pretty enough.

Pretty, but not pretty enough for me to replace my existing copy.

Raises the question of will the currently-in-development expansion be available in both standard and Remastered graphic format.
