  • [Launcher] Added option to select Spanish game language. Translation is still forthcoming.
  • [Translation] Thanks to X22, some Spanish images have been translated. [Issue #850]
  • [UI] Fixed crash when pressing PgDown and the current planet is not owned by the player. [Issue #882]
  • [UI] Fixed the swap of Russian letters T and У in 7px font. [Issue #881]
  • [Balance] Reordered the extra skirmish-alien ships to better fit with the the campaign ships' hp/dps/cost values and fixed their prices. [Issue #880]

Game version 0.95.180 released

  • [Missions] Fixed the case when defending a trader mission and destroying the virus carriers mission was active at the same time completing any of the space battles caused the other mission to glitch out. [Issue #867]
  • [UI] The options screen now displays the regular cursor instead of randomly displaying the context-sensitive cursor of the underlying screen.
  • [UI] Fixed bridge videos double playing in case the player clicked on the notification text in the status bar multiple times or during an ongoing animation/playback. [Issue #875]

Game version 0.95.179 released

Notable changes:

  • [Translation] Thanks to X22, the russian text, subtitles and images are now way better. [Issue #863]
  • [Cursors] Thanks to Bajor "Danyetz" Dániel, spacewar and groundwar cursors have been implemented. Using custom cursors is enabled by default and can be disabled in the Settings / Mouse screen. [Issue #187]
  • [Spacewar] Rockets and bombs have now a default 30 ingame second time-to-live. This should help in situations where the rocket would land in a stable orbit around a target, preventing the spacewar to finish. [Issue #867]
  • The trade screen has been implemented. Accessible via F12 or from the top right dropdown menu. The screen is accessible from all game modes, including the campaign. The economic model is quite simple: twice the cost of the production of the item and any equipment they hold. The list is regenerated every 3 ingame days and contains a randomized set of 75% of the available technology. Medium and capital ships have randomly generated equipment. [Issue #315]
  • [Technology, Skirmish, UI] All alien races now have additional fighters, destroyers and battleships which can be utilized in skirmish games. Many related UI errors have been fixed. [Issue #865]
  • [UI] Navigating between the planets via keyboard cursor keys and PgUp/PgDown on the Information / Planets screen is now working properly. [Issue #]
  • [Skirmish] Banks are now limited to 1 per planet even if unlimited economic building option was selected. [Issue #860, Issue #868]
  • [AI] AI no longer spends money on building upgrades when there is plenty of room to build a new building. [Issue #858]
  • [Achievements] Some achievements have been modified to be only attainable in the main campaign. [Issue #870]

Developer Guide started on the project Wiki

There has been an increased interest in helping me develop the game, but in order to get things started on one's own machine, several convoluted steps need to be taken.

Therefore, I composed a small wiki page for the Developer Guide with some initial info. The page will be extended with additional details on demand.

Game version 0.95.176 released

Notable changes

  • Thanks to a new contributor, X22, the russian graphics has been rewamped and cleaned up. In addition, X22 created the subtitles for the cutscenes. Thanks! [Issue #863]
  • [Skirmish] Added the ability to scale the planet surfaces by 2-4 times. This will copy the base surface in a square pattern all over again. Surfaces are generally performance hogs so you'll probably allocate more memory to the game via the Launcher and/or run the game with a 64 bit Java runtime.
  • [Settings] Added the ability to switch between the IG font and a system default monospaced vector font (i.e., Courier New). Needs application restart to take effect.
