Release Notes: 1.3.2
Content
- Added a new gun, the armor-melting Hades Light Cannon, that deals fire and piercing damage.
- 3 new omni-class costumes


Features
- Added the ability to dye costumes. Each costume can take up to two dye colors (primary and secondary) that affect different areas. Dyes can be purchased through the store or unlocked with levels.
- The store now has a shopping cart. Now you can check out many items at once in one Steam transaction.
- Added UI “tutorial” tooltips for first-time users (can be disabled in Options)
- Added the ability to store up to three pre-made loadouts for each class or ship
- Beginner-only matches allow only limited ships and loadouts that are known to work and be beginner-friendly. Low-level players are still able to play normal, unrestricted matches as well.
- Changed hit indicators: size now indicates only “weak” or “strong” hits, determined by damage multipliers vs the kind of part hit. A red color indicates hits to the unarmored hull.
- All hat or goggle items are unisex and can be worn by each gender
- You can view others’ current skill loadout in match lobby.
- You can view anyone’s public information, as well as their costumes in each class, from the player popup.
- Added a “Leave Count” for each user, incremented when that user leaves a match before it finishes (and does not reconnect). Leave count is displayed on your public profile.
- New animated gun reticles.
- Added first person equipment switching animation.
- Added edge of map effects.
- Added various Unlockable Achievement Chalenges: guns & ship stats, map lore, and more to come in the future. Check them out in the Books section (underneath the Progress button)

Fixes and Optimization
- Fixed a bug that caused Flamethrower particles to unexpectedly not hit small hitboxes
- Fixed a bug that caused guns to misfire after switching to an ammo type that lowers rate of fire (for example, Incendiary Rounds)
- Fixed a bug that automatic weapons are skipping firing sound at the 2nd burst
- Fixed a bug that switching to other gun skills changes most guns' fire sound, like it was shooting double
-Fixed a bug where at a 90-degree FOV, the player’s tool assets appeared to be floating.
-Fixed a bug on Water Hazard where clouds would not interrupt spotting

WOW, was wondering when we'd see more. That's quite a bit.

I got another 68.1mb patch after installing the new patch and playing. Is the smaller one to fix the textures on the ships and weapons?
Keyvias Sep 19, 2013 @ 9:58am 
yup and other small bugs we introduced

And drop after 5 min play on Debian.

ok I had been looking for a post like this and I'm glad I found it. I'm still a level 2 pilot and I stopped playing Icarus because it broke, but this update fixed it. HOWEVER, now I can't use my own custom ships and loadouts like I used to, and I'm limited to the goldfish and pyramidion, with 3 pre-made loadouts for each -_- so do I just need to level up or can I change my preferences so I can use what guns and ships I want?

Hey Nin10dude,

The beginner matches are the only places where the ship choices are limited (mostly because many first time captains would make builds that wouldn't kill the enemy and become bored)
In any normal round you should be able to choose from any of the ships and set up your weapons however you'd like.

Thank you Keyvias. I was saddened that I couldn't use my overpowered Junker anymore lol but now I know! thanks again!
