Greetings captains,

We've cranked our bug-smashing efforts up a notch since the last update. I can tell you right away that the focus was on all the various smaller or larger bugs You diligent and patient ladies and gentlemen have reported in. The change-log is listed below.

Of course, insect repelling isn't the only thing we've been doing and I'm happy to report two more additional ships are available for purchase on Concordia: your very own Caelifera freighter and Dynastes freightliner. Also, the DaVinci Research Station has now received its proper attire.

StarpointGeminiWarlords 03

Our goal for the next large update is simple: shovel in a whole lot of new content with as few new bugs as possible. You can definitely expect it to be substantial :).

Safe travels, captains... and as before, please keep reporting problems, giving suggestions and sending in your game logs. And thank you for your immense patience! We appreciate it A LOT!

  • Fixed a problem with overlapping text labels on objects during Delivery freelance jobs
  • Pressing the Esc button during an open dialog, will no longer crash the game or cause other glitches or destroy the universe. It will do what it's supposed to do in that situation: nothing.

  • Fixed a couple of errors in the dialog system that would cause the dialogue to work in mysterious ways (never in a good way though)
  • Sending your fleet to attack a Will o the Wisp zone will no longer send them across the universe in the wrong direction. The Garrison was marked wrong.

  • Using the Quick action hotkey while on Starchart is no longer possible. No more crashing the game that way. Sorry guys.

And mix it a bit...
