Update 1.8
Greetings Admirals,

We're pleased to release a new update!

This latest patch brings the long awaited Fleet Color System, as well as many bug fixes.

Patch Notes 1.8

New Features
  • Integration of the Fleet Colour System for each faction except Space Marines.
  • The Fleet Colour can be changed at the Docks by clicking on the button displayed at the right of the Admiral panel.
  • The Favors can be hidden for each ship by clicking the checkbox on the Favours panel (even for the Space Marines).
  • In-game, Integration of favors icons at the right of the ship’s life bar in order to keep a feedback of the favors fitted when the player hide the favors skins.
Balancing
  • Modification of the Tau “Water Caste” favor skill “Nicassar reinforcement” cooldown (180s -> 240s).
  • Modification of the ordinance behavior, launching an ordinance skill while another ordinance squadron is already out will create a new squadron instead of regrouping with the existing ones.
  • Retake of the skill “Emergency repair”, the skill won’t stop anymore if the ship has reach its maximum hull points.

Very nice, thank you. Now let us wait for the inevitable complaining that someone can not paint their ork ship pink:steammocking:
thx, nice job, plz work on increasing game modes to 3vs3 and 4vs4 battles, without missions only battles.

I would have preferred to paint my fleets in various colors (trim, primary, secondary, additional, etc). This will do though I suppose.

Welll... I enjoyed the paint job 5 minutes. Cool stuff & features with favors too. But still it's cosmetic. Playing 2V2 while restricted to 300 pts each, block near half the game preventing playing each one a big ship... Playing Heroic Elite with cruiser get boring quickly... :(
Calistarius Nov 25, 2016 @ 5:58am 
Hmm, can't paint my Fleets as i wish.
May i'm to stupid. Where can i change my Colours?
