Update 22 is here and brings a whole bunch of new user interface changes, bug fixes and a few other tweaks.
I’ve updated the look of many windows in the game, including the object/colonist info window. The object/colonist window now share a uniform tabbed design that allows for better organization of content. Additional changes to where information is located in these tabs will likely happen in future updates.
A construction queue window has been added that lists objects currently under construction. You can drag and drop items to re-order the list as well as quickly move them to the top/bottom. The list can be filtered by structure category to assist in finding the object your looking for.
The mini-map can now be zoomed using the scroll wheel. Click and drag to pan the field of view. Colonist dots now have a hover tool-tip.
The planet surface map has had several changes made to its interface. The left side info panel is now divided into tabbed sections and a new section has been added which lists constructed buildings.
A mini-map has been added to the planet surface.
I had hoped to integrate game balance changes in this update, but the UI changes took longer than expected. The next update will focus on some large scale changes to game balance. Stay tuned for more information regarding these changes.
Check out the release notes below for all of the changes and fixes in Update 22.
