Patch Notes and Blog
Huge updates to the planet editor to allow players to make richer campaigns, story mission and multiplayer maps. The custom cannon system has been updated to complement the advanced cannon system nicely. Vehicle physics have had an update and now drag is applied at the center of drag, rather than the center of mass. The game is now more playable than ever with the inclusion of a “building bar” similar to those seen in other RTS games- you can populate this building bar with all of your favourite designs. Localised resources add a new level of depth to the game as resource must be carried to the point of use using supply fleets. Fleet patrol loops have been added to make this easier to manage.
What’s planned for 2016.
Mod support is underway- allowing the inclusion and changing of all in game components, their textures, materials, meshes, stats and code. After that the focus will be on including new component sets including Steam and Nuclear engines and AI faction strategic AI will get an upgrade. Fire mechanics are also planned for inclusion in 2016 as well as a much greater level of multiplayer integration.
