It is the year 2287, one of the first colony ships sent out by Earth arrives at the planet Maria, in the Epsilon Indi Star System. During its landing sequence, something appears in front of the massive ship that causes it to lose control and crash into the planet. Some of the colonists survive in lifeboats, but what they find is an unforgiving land filled with creatures ready to outlast the visitors from Earth. Now the survivors must explore, gather, build, create, fight, and ultimately, conquer the land.

Description

A small update that fixes most of the bugs found in 0.51 as well as added a camera sensitivity slider control to the options menu.


FAQ
 Q: It keeps saying "No Opencl platform found!"A: This could mean two things. First, you graphics card doesn't have opencl support, in that case, well, sorry, the voxel generation needs opencl calculations, so please upgrade. Second, your graphics card does have opencl support but doesn't have the latest driver, in this case, update your driver. Check here for a list of all the graphics cards that support opencl: Phaseone.com 

Q: I load the game fine, then it dies while loading.A: This might be an one time issue for some people, we're still not sure why it's happening, but in most cases, players were able to change the resolution settings and player when launching a second time. 

Q: I can play the game fine, but as I was running around, it crashed!A: This is most likely due to a memory crash. We made sure it doesn't happen on 64bit Windows, but 32bit machine will crash if you set the game to 512m or lkm terrain.  

Q: I have bugs to report!A: Goto our board here: Board.pathea.net to report any bugs. Be as precise as possible, pictures would be nice as well. And please don't tweet us bugs, use the board, thanks! 

Q: I like it, now what?A: Go spread the word, I guess. We'll be up on Greenlight and Kickstarter soon, so support us there!

 Q: I don't like it, now what?A: Lalalalalala. Actually if you have any complaints or suggestions, do take it up on our boards at Board.pathea.net

Game was fun for 5 minutes then slowed to a halt. 8GB memory, HD6850, 6-core at 3.4ghz; shouldn't be happening. Also 95% of the game's features are vastly incomplete and/or broken, namely combat and the mind-numbing respawn system and quests. I understand this is an early alpha but at least get the important stuff working first before you release it as an alpha IMO (performance issues).

I hate to be a pessimist but I've literally not played a single game developed in Unity that has made me want to play it for more than half an hour without ripping my brain out. I am really hoping Pathea can make me believe that it's possible to develop a quality, fun gaming experience with Unity. StarForge was and remains a hilariously over-hyped failure of an alpha Unity game... please don't follow in their footsteps. I want to be able to come back here in a year or so and play a quality game.

Can you describe how it slowed? Were you building? Running? Panning? Facing a NPC? There seems to be a build bug that may cause massive slow down that was just discovered, we're still looking at it.

This game looks promising, and you seem to be able to translate your art or vision to a game, but unity is a strange engine to do this in.

unity at its best has the graphical capabilities of engines that existed 6 years ago, while needing a computer of this era. (quad core, 4 gig memory, ect.) this machine can run a lot of games from 2011 but i cant get a frame rate that looks better than a slideshow in planet explorers. to me it proves that unity is to blame, and actually not the developers as this happens in any game using unity.

i truly hope that this game turns out great as a sandbox building and adventure game, and that in some way it will run smoother on ever system possible.

Well, if we had $60 mil...or even $1 mil, we'd select a better engine or do our own, sure. But we don't. :)

We'll try to optimize more, especially the plants and animals, and I think we'll get some mileage out of it.

I'm in the middle of downloading right now.
So what's the chance of having the ability to mass a horde of npcs in custom gear and vehicles and assaulting an alien town being implemented into the final product?

Are you in adventure or build mode? The 512X512 maps takes a long time to load for some people, we're still fixing it. I suggest you open the game, then goto story mode or use the 256X256 maps.

Ok, can you send your output log (found in the game's folder) to admin@pathea.net? That should tell us what's going on. In the mean time, you could try manually updating your GPU driver found on AMDs site (~v13.1).

Ok, we've seen this before. Can you find the output log in your game's folder and send that to admin@pathea.net? Close the game, then start a new one through story again and see if everything' generated.
