Story Lines

So far, the game was all about surviving in deep space without any long-term goal or winning condition. The new Story Line changes this! Now, you can add the first new Story Line as bonus card to your game. A second one will be available in two weeks!

Each Story Line adds its own story and goals to your game. When starting the game, you will get a message with your first task. After completing a task, you will get a new one, until you completed the story. Completing a story is rewarded with a Steam Achievement and a new powerful unlocked spaceship!

The amazing thing about these Story Lines are that they are added like any other bonus card. That means, you can multiple Story Line cards to your game to create a unique campaign or you can play like you did so far by not using any of these new cards!

Two new spaceships

Two new spaceships with a unique look were added to Galactic Crew. Their sizes and abilities are comparable to the Zeus-class or Horus-class battlecruisers. You can unlock them by completing the Story Lines.

Six new rooms

This update also features six new rooms that can be used to customize your spaceship. There are two completely new rooms: Item Processor and Guest Room. Sending a crew member to interact with a Item Processor opens a crafting dialog you can use to assemble or disassemble items. Guest rooms can be used to transport tourists from one space station to another. You'll find new tourism missions at all space stations.

There are also four upgraded versions of existing rooms: Shield Generator II, Drone Booster II, Storage Room II and Engine II. They are like their Tier 1 counterparts, but more powerful and more expensive.

Four new planets & sixty new dungeons

Four new planetary missions were added including weapon smuggler outposts, a scrapyard and and an archaelogical field lab. I don't want to tell you more about them, because I don't want to spoil any content of the Story Line! You can also explore these planets without the Story Line in new space events!

There are also sixty new handcrafted dungeons waiting for your exploration. These new dungeons also feature many new rooms, new NPCs, new quests and new dungeon styles!

New playable race

You can now play with two new android characters!

Multi selection

Now, you can select and command multiple crew members. Press Strg key when selecting a crew member by clicking on its UI item or by clicking on its model to add this character to the selection.

But wait, there is more...

The goods Firearms and Ammo have been replaced by High-Tech Components and Scrap. All quests and events related to the old goods have been updated and your cargo hold will be converted automatically when continuing your game. The biggest change is that looting a weapon crate now has a 30% chance of looting an equippable firearm and a 10% chance of looting a body armor!

There are also five new items related to the new Story Line, new Steam Achievements you can get after completing the Story Lines.

The bonus cards in the Game Creation view are now color-coded and sorted by type. This makes it easier to find a certain type of card.

Coming up next...

In two weeks, another Story Line will be added to Galactic Crew that can be combined with the first one or used solely.

After that, I will work on visual improvements like shadows, better laser effects, etc. This updated is planned for late June / early July.
