Thanks for your work!
So many fixes for bugs i even never noticed oo
Doombringer Nov 1, 2016 @ 11:27am 
Yeah, not a lot of game mechanic changes though.
I guess espionage rework and minor civs come some time next year.
Anathera Nov 1, 2016 @ 11:39am 
Holy crap, what a wall of text.... erm.. bugfixes :steamhappy:
Red Earth Nov 1, 2016 @ 11:46am 
Hi. I just started the game and looking around I can't find anyone who knows what armor resilience does. I've just assumed it was a feature that doesn't work yet so I haven't been using armor piercing weapons, but if that's not the case I'd like to know what it does.
Doombringer Nov 1, 2016 @ 12:07pm 
Not sure, I just use the +hitpoints one ;)
Ghash Nov 1, 2016 @ 1:34pm 
Yeah, i've bought this game early in beta cause of one promised feature:
* Multiplayer Tactical Battles

All i read in Patchnotes is:
- no tactical battles for Multiplayer yet
- no tactical battles for Multiplayer yet
- no tactical Battles for Multiplayer yet

I don't care if you choose round based or realtime tactics, but no tactical battle in multiplayer means: no multiplayer.

Moo LIVES from tactical battles and the feeling to get most out of self customized ships.

My main menu UI is stuck on the blue planet with the star at the back and it's not showing me any options! Yesterday was all right, any thoughts?
lahtis Nov 1, 2016 @ 2:09pm 
Same here. Cannot play game. Tomorrow bye a game. Played 6 hours and today cannot play. Latest patch is broken. Where is game UI? Show only blue planet with the star at the back.

Using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with NVIDIA geforce GTX 560 ti with latest closed drivers.

check cache - not working.
Uninstall game and install game. Same error but UI flashing fast in backround and crash. Not working.

My game worked great until this patch, now it sits with the "processing turn" flashing for, well all i can assume is for forever as it never comes back to my turn. Wtf?
Waratah Nov 1, 2016 @ 6:16pm 
My games now freeze in combat mode. Combat doesn't start, it just freezes. I tried it three times with the same result.

Here's the output_log file:
sargondorsai Nov 1, 2016 @ 6:54pm 
The game is freezing up every time I meet the first race for the game. It just sits there trying to process that race's turn and makes it no further. This is playing on the largest map size.
Summon3r Nov 1, 2016 @ 9:47pm 
Disappointed. ....

Nothing on the current pathetic ground combat, nothing on the awful espionage. And so on.

Game remains shelved.
mpnorman10 Nov 1, 2016 @ 10:27pm 
Lots work going on! Hey, since early in the pre-launch there has been a problem that Astro University does not show up on the list of available builds for some planets for no reason. The list above is long enough so I could have missed it, but I did read the whole thing and did not see a fix for that. Not having that build available is a serious limitation for planets best focused on research rather than production.
rgb0853 Nov 1, 2016 @ 10:35pm 
With this new patch a good game has been turned into a terrible unplayable game. The new pollution and gravity rules do not make it a better game. In fact, they detract from the game experience. I feel cheated and have wasted my money.
