Can't wait until it is all done! Love the way you've out FTL in Rimworld. Two of my favourite games in one. Hell yeah!

Some races have been updated, some others have not. I need to have them all updated to release this one.
Bro pls, when will you make 1.3 update?

Big FTL fan here, and new to Rimworld. I can't wait for LTF 1.3. This looks fantastic!

Can't wait for 1.3. Love FTL. Love Rimworld. This mod has become essential for my playthroughs. Make the rim feel much more vast and alive, and makes you play differently. Not only skills and traits you look for, but you chose from a vast amount of species. Heckin' awesome!

Thank you for telling me. I will take it step by step, meaning 1 race after the other. LTF will come last.
