Excluding one of the mods and the extra sprite sets, everything in the bonus content is available online somewhere. Once the CD is out, people will be incorporating the additional sprites into mods, so they will be available anyway. That leaves one mod as content truly unique to the CD. The mod is a series of 10 linked division carry-over battles. You can't beat it, but the challenge is to see how far you can get. If people who play it think it is worth the bother, I will release it a month or so after the CD comes out.

Fair enough

Down the line I would like for more specific info on where to download the "Cd content", but that can wait.
Funny thing is, you actually have lost a few revenue by deciding on a DD version only versus a box version only. I would have payed more when I bought the DD version to get a "pre-buy" of the box version when it would become available. I did this with Les Grognards, and Elemental. I did not do this with SoW...but I would have if you have given me that option.
