Avaruustaistelupeli release 0.4.5 for Win64, OSX and Linux.

Posted by on

This time I concentrated mainly for ship crafting aspect. The game is now quite feature-complete, so it is time to end the 0.4.x -cycle and move on to 0.5.x. During the next cycle, I'll focus upgrading the graphical side as well as polishing and balancing the existing features.

Fixes and smaller improvements

  • Button for browsing into the ship persistence folder, and another one for copying the path to system clipboard. Also, ship and fleet files are now more clearly visible.


    dir buttons

  • Reset -button (ctrl+shift+r in any menu page) for resetting settings.
  • Lots of improvements to shipyard UI: undo/redo -fixes, tooltips always stay completely visible, faster dropdown scrolling etc.
  • Fixes to resolution handling and UI scaling (continued from 0.4.4.1, thanks for all the reporters).
  • AI should be a little more competent with energy balls.
  • Backup energy calculation fixes.
  • Improved and hopefully clarified the energy transport cost calculation (now called energy utilization rate).
  • Energy sources no longer reduce the energy utilization rate.

Issues

  • UI scaling gets blurred on smaller resolutions. Full HD resolution (1920x1080) or better is highly recommended, until I get this fixed.

The next versions

  • Increasing the polygon count of module meshes from 12 to 24 and beyond.
  • Making the UI (mainly icons and fonts) vector-based and scalable.
  • Diversifying the AI behavior: instead of having just skill levels, there will be a set of opponents with distinct characteristics.
  • Upgrading to Unity's new input system and making controls customizable.
  • And a last minute note: the prototype of new module base has just arrived. It will soon replace the current one (shown in the background).
