Early Access version 20/21


This started off as a bug-only update, but at the last minute we managed to cram in some new functionality: recently played missions and mission to-do lists. We also performed a little bit of galactic housekeeping, deleting old inactive players.

Your bug & idea medals will be awarded in the next few hours soon.

UPDATE v.21: This update fixes the problem of no time delay between waves. You’ll need to download another client update. Sorry! :worried:
