Version 1.009 is now out, and overall it is individually a small release. But this is the first official update to include all the goodies from 1.005 onwards. So for those not playing the beta branch, this new version is HUGE
For those who were playing the beta branch, this one mainly brings improvements to the NPC vs NPC battles getting stalemated in late game with the honorable races were the attackers. We've gotten a bit derailed today, so no new features today, but I'll make it up to you as the week progresses. ;)
--------------- Ongoing Updates ---------------
All through this week we will continue releasing at least one new free feature every day of the work week, thanks to the overwhelming support this game has
had. This is far and away our best launch ever, and that gap keeps widening by surprising degrees. We're extremely
grateful to our ever-growing community for their support, as well as to
the press for taking the time out to look at our stuff. You guys are all awesome!
this week, we'll see -- at minimum, we'll continue putting out at least one new free feature
every week for at least a few months, if not longer. A quest, a new
weapon or ability, a new ship, a new action... something. We'll vary it
up, and make it fun. I'm really excited about expanding the game even
further, as large as it already is. Right now we're doing that very
fast in response to all the huge numbers of new players and all the
things that a larger audience is bound to dig up in a game of this scope
and complexity; once that settles down, we'll make it less intensive
but still ongoing.
More to come tomorrow. Enjoy!
