Developer Log #73

Howdy Folks!

Thanks for all the great feedback so far on the Phone Home update. While there are still some smaller tweaks and fixes being worked on, I wanted to cover what’s in development for the next content update. The upcoming Choices update focuses on a complete revamp of the new game interface.

A Whole New New Game

The new game interface is getting a complete over haul. This has been on my to-do list for a while and it’s now time. The primary reason for this is to allow greater choice over starting conditions. These choices will include control over world generation settings, colonists and additional game related settings.

The interface itself is still a work in progress, but there will be options for randomization as well as a sandbox mode that will allow full editing control of specific values.

Still more work to be done, but I’m very excited about the change. This will allow for a lot more control over how you want to play the game. The above screenshots show some of the new game options. Stay tuned for more information regarding the upcoming Choices update.

What would you like to have control over when starting a new game?

Howdy Folks!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I just wanted to push another patch update out the door to address a couple of new and old issues. With some new reports and new data I was able to find and fix a couple of issues related to settings as well as power conduits. Be sure to take a look at the release notes below.

What’s Next?

With the Phone Home update released, I’ve been planning out the next content release. As shown on the roadmap the next content update will focus on an overhaul to the new game interface. This will add various starting options to control your gameplay experience. Further details about this and other content in development will be coming in the next developer log so stay tuned 🙂

Release Notes

  • Added “Disable Conduit Top Down View” to control settings. When enabled this will disable the camera view from auto switching to a top down view when entering water or power conduit mode.
  • Fixed: Resolution setting resets to 640×480 when opening settings window in some instances
  • Fixed: Haul request data not loaded correctly from save game for launch pad rocket construction. This causes the rocket to not receive all materials if loaded from save game in some instances.
  • Fixed: Electric power networks not being rebuilt correctly when adding/removing conduits in some instances. This caused various power network issues including, but not limited to, objects getting power when they shouldn’t, objects not getting power when they should, total power amount generated/used showing incorrectly and flickering power.
