62110 adds AI difficulty scaling and a large number of bug fixes.
It's here! With today's update, we turned the page on beta. This is the first of several updates in Planetary Annihilation's new "gamma" phase of development. Gamma is all about you and your friends. During this phase, we'll unveil new social features and new ways to interact with Planetary Annihilation. We'll also roll out a dizzying amount of really cool new tech like linkable replays and more picture-in-picture functionality.
Today's update is a fantastic sneak peek at what the gamma phase is going to bring to the table -- and it has some awesome, brand new features:
User Experience Updates:
Streamlined UI Elements! - We rebuilt our front-end menu and lobby menu. They look a lot cooler and sleeker, and are also more intuitive.
In-Game UI Refresh! - We've created a new build bar and reimagined the system menu.
Armory! - In the brand new armory (which is available in the main menu), you can view all the Commanders you own.
Orchestral Score! - It's in! Prep your earholes for this: it's as stunning and epic as you imagined it would be.
More Commanders! - We've added several new Commanders for you to enjoy. This list includes the awesome Theta Commander. You've got to see this guy.
Ahoy! - AI can now use naval. Insert battleship and sinking reference here.
Alliances! - In free-for-all games, you can now create alliances.
Twitch.TV Improvements! - You can now view streams in the lobby.
Performance and Optimization Fixes! - As part of our ongoing process of making Planetary Annihilation more awesome, we've tweaked some elements to make it play better.
Uber Cannon! - The Uber Cannon is no longer so great at wrecking buildings -- or other Commanders.
Armor System! - We've created an armor system to balance out a couple of edge balance issues.
Lobby Shenanigans! - Non-owning members in a new lobby have the appearance of adding/removing slots; it doesn't actually do anything, but it looks very confusing. Only the person who created the lobby can control it.
We're really proud of this update and can't wait to get even more gamma features out to you in the near future. We'll see you in the (newly redesigned) lobbies, Commanders.
Some of the Balance Details:
Land Mines: - Improved size and placement - Damage: 500 -> 1000 - Splash Radius: 5 -> 15 - Metal Cost: 150 -> 20 - No longer leaves wreckage.
