Verdant Skies is now at 1.4.0! This huge update has major new features for mod makers and mod enthusiasts. We’ve also reworked romance events for Sasha, Yuki, Rosie, Wyatt and Miles. You’ll now have new flirting options with these characters, and if you’re not hinting at a relationship, they won’t confess their love for you.
Have you played the new teenager update yet? Version 1.3 allows you to choose one of your children to grow up. Guide them through boarding school and interact with them once they return to the colony. A new set of Quantum Technology events tie into the growth of your child and provide high-priced end-game goodies! There’s even a new vocal music track in a special ending event!
Major New Features in 1.4.0:
- The Mod Uploader tool is now built into the game, making it easier than ever to share your mod.
- Create and view waypoints for custom dialog events, schedules, and more.
- A large amount of documentation for modding has been added to the wiki!
- Rework character events for Sasha, Yuki, Rosie, Wyatt, and Miles. These characters have a few flirting questions, and won’t confess their love to you unless you hint pretty strongly that you’re interested. If you don’t hint to them, you’ll have the option to confess to them.
- More changes to support stranger aspect ratios.
- Intro now has an animated starfield. This might help with a few people who got stuck on black screens on the intro.

- Yuki fan art dialog added.
