This update has a goodly bit of stuff in it. First off are a mix of bugfixes and balance tweaks for both Light of the Spire and the base game, most notably relating to bomber starships and turrets.
Secondly, the first version of the Fallen Spire minor faction for LotS is now in there. As we've noted in the past, this is one of the major anchor features of this expansion, and it's sort of a scripted sequence of events that you can go through to achieve... well, that's secret. At the moment, only about 10% of the events are in place, and only a few of the new specialized ships relating to this story-based minor faction are in place, but a lot of groundwork is done for how to create the rest of the events and ships related to this. This one is really exciting, but we're being careful to avoid spoilers on what the actual events entail. Stay tuned on this one!
This is a standard update that you can download through the
in-game updater itself, if you already have 4.000 or later. When you
launch the game, you'll see the notice of the update having been found
if you're connected to the Internet at the time. If you don't have 4.000 or later, you can download that here.
