Today's release has yet more Fallen Spire minor faction stuff, basically adding a third "episode" to the story progression of that minor faction. We won't say anything more about that, for risk of spoilers, but it's cool as always with the Fallen Spire work. :)
Also notable in this release is a new Ship Design screen on the Controls screen, for better modular ship designing, as well as smaller savegame files (and possibly a fix to that pthread_getschedparam OSX issue we've been chasing).
Beyond that, there are a few bugfixes and balance tweaks (Raid Starships should be useful again, Avengers are tougher, etc). Other parts behind the scenes have still been inwork and aren't quite ready for release yet, but more is coming! The first of the Spirecraft, including their unique (and as-yet unrevealed) new method of being built, are both coming soon.
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.
