Early Access version 31

MAIN CHANGES

This is the Christmas 2019 update :gift: . Music and (some) graphics have been changed to their Christmas variants (sadly there wasn’t enough time to do a full re-skin, so you’ll have to make do with a few Santa hats :santa: ). Holiday changes will be reverted in the next update.

Bug/Idea medals will be awarded later in the day. :warning: Your medal cannot be awarded if your in-game callsign doesn’t match your forum name (send it to me in a private message).

BACKUPS

You are reminded that during Early Access you are responsible for backing up your own progress. Make a copy of everything under C:\ProgramData\InterAction studios\CIU (including all sub-folders). :warning: Never rename files or move them from one version folder to another. Simply make a copy and then later put it back exactly where you found it.

Server is very slow!

There’s a problem. Investigating.

Update: I think this was because the DB was being backed up, slowing down everything. The backup is finished now. Let me know if you still encounter problems.

I found a bug, the theme of ci3 is not heard in the menu of the store (in other words it is not heard like the others)

It starts off with a slow volume fade-in. Give it 5-10 seconds.

Isn’t the monitor option supposed to be greyed out?

Do you think you could modify the way you can choose the category of missions, just so you are able to select the category you want rather than clicking on it until you get there?
( To change from clicking to selecting a specific category )

From the way they work now:

To something similar to shop categories:

Or exploration options:

Yeah, it is the coward chickens that make it look rather weird, I’ve been able to experience the Bubble Bath level with other chickens and they seem to behave normal. But even so… I’m pretty sure I’ve experienced coward chickens in bubble bath before and they didn’t behave like that, but who knows.

EDIT: I’ve found in older topics ( Idea about how to Fix one CURRENT KNOWN BUG ) that this is indeed a bug, even though back then it was affecting only ninja chicks ( seems to have been solved back in version 18 Early Access version 18 ) and since coward chickens were introduced in version 29 ( Early Access version 29 ) they seems to suffer from the exact same issue.

(I think) I found a little bug. Was it present in the earlier versions too?

I’ve quit the game back in the day while being in the orbit of no planet (the orchestrated theme would be played). Now I logged in again, still in the interplanetary zone, but now the ‘mellow’ theme is played instead.

(P.S.: My callsign is “Wajiro” in-game.)

Hello everyone. I’m back

Sounds so similar to Alt+Tab glitch
