Early Access version 22

MAIN CHANGES

The main change in this update is the addition of asteroid belts to the galaxy, alongside their Meteor Storm missions & boss.The galaxy has been partially regenerated in order to make space for the new asteroid belts. Existing star systems have been moved around, so if you weren’t docked to a planet you may find your spacecraft floating in space!

This is a very delicate update. We tried to avoid a full galaxy regeneration, but this might cause things to not work as expected. Let us know if you encounter anything weird!

Medals will be awarded later today.

COMPATIBILITY

You will lose:

  • any in-mission progress
  • any menu options you have configured

  • Deleted users that haven’t logged in in the past 4 weeks and have less than an hour of playtime.

Omg Crazy boss unusually…

Spoil it to me, in private messages if noone wants to be spoiled.

Is it possible for the meteors to come from behind?

Too bad for me D: I changed my PC recently, and I lost my progress :(

Are you asking? Or suggesting?

Interesting Fact: Confirmed Slow Mode

I’m just asking. I wasn’t able to find that yet.

No. I did some experiments with asteroids coming both from the front/behind, but it was crazy hard… perhaps something for the Universal Grandmaster difficulty? :wink:

Maybe rotate ship in some waves ?
For example 11 waves:
2 waves in forward
2 waves in right side
2 waves in left side
2 waves in backward
