There’s a bunch of changes in this version (see below for details). Some server problems prevented us from introducing as many new elements in this update as we would have liked. The upside is that this update is completely backwards compatible – you will only lose your current mission (if you’re in the middle of flying one).
A major change is how skills work: instead of boosting enemy health (example: Superstar Hero used to boost +200%), skills now boost mission difficulty (+40%), key drop rate (+50%), +enemy projectile speed (+30%), enemy health (+30%). Other lesser skill levels boost proportionately less. These percentages can (and will) be changed based on your comments.
- Fixed: Store’s “Buy” button will not be correctly disabled if you run out of keys after purchasing one unit. If you click on “buy” while not having enough keys, the game will crash.
- Fixed in-mission crashes when using “Damage Amplifier” and “Dimensional Phase-out”
- Pressing ESC on galaxy screen now brings up disconnection menu
- Subtle outline on UI buttons
- Added text to “Hint button” for rare items
- Empty “skill” slot now shows icon for Rookie instead of Tourist
- Boss Chick eggs are now big-endian
- “Distinguished Green Greed Cross” is now per-mission (instead of per-wave)
- Reduced star mass exponent to 40%
- Calibrated “duration” mission rating to a maximum of 40 waves
- Information overlay now uses arrows for insights instead of pie charts
- Corrected orbit distance from wormholes (increased wormhole boundRadius) – galaxy regeneration required
- Keys/Fuel/etc displayed in terms of K/M/G are now truncated instead of rounded
- Corrected overflow of >100K keys/fuel/food in galaxy, and >1K food in mission
- Line-of-sight calculation for exhaust glow is now fully symmetrical.
- Prevented new trips while already on a trip.
- (Probably) fixed cause of server crash.
- Reworked prices to make bulk-buying cheaper (e.g., fuel)
- Sell prices are now better on regional shops than Galactic store
- Fork overheats slightly faster
- Skill now controls mission difficulty, enemy projectile speed, key drop rate, score multiplier, enemy health
