Steam Marines v0.6.5.5a has arrived with bugfixes to patch v0.6.5a!

Posted by on

Hello again!

Less than a 24 hour turnaround for v0.6.5a release and a v0.6.5.5a bugfix build. Not too shabby, eh? Save games should be compatible so no worries, just download and install.



New Features

  • Frost weapons now have a 50% chance on hit to reduce target action points
    by 1.
  • Grenadier weapon chance to destroy terrain increased to 75%.
  • All classes had weapon stats tweaked (mostly upward) in part to compensate for
    new stat reduction mechanics.
  • All classes had base armor rating increased.
  • All Flamejacks have a 3 tile range for their main attack in both Easy
    and Normal difficulties.
  • Reduced chance for enemies to pop out of grate tiles.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed secondary objective "Use no grenades" from updating prematurely.
    It happens to lots of objectives!
  • Action Point counters update immediately when swapping gear instead of after
    taking another action.
  • Enemies now destroy dispensers instead of walking underneath them.
  • Fixed Leader class talent "Stim" not auto ending the turn when using
    the squad's last action points. Plays nice with "auto-end turn"
    game option.
  • Fixed Grenadier splash damage without a primary target being set at
    grenade level damage (30).
  • Fixed a slew of inventory persistence bugs!
  • Fixed character gender not always updating on squad creation screen.
  • All squad slot classes should cycle properly regardless of the current class
  • Scout auto-shots in follow mode should now penetrate multiple enemies
  • Squad members no longer able to reload and fire in the same movement in
    Follow Mode.
  • Fixed flanking shots in Follow Mode.
  • Fixed damage popup display issue on Grenadier's primary target.
  • You should no longer be able to fire between tile positions by spamming keys
    like a mad (wo)man.
  • Fixed erroneous "found stairs" messages triggering when near stairs.


  • Auto-save on program exit turned off to avoid save file corruption on program
