Early Access version 72


This is an emergency update to fix some translation issues. I’ve introduced some partial rudimentary right-to-left language support. Read 🌎 How to translate the game to discover how it works.

There are two known issues with languages:

  • Arabic-style languages, where the shape of each letter changes depending on whether it’s begin/middle/end/isolated.
  • Thai-style languages, where the accents are not part of the letter, but are superimposed afterwards on it.

Both problems are currently unsolved. I’m looking into them, but I fear that I don’t have the spare time to solve them at this stage.

Also: Rather self-evidently, galaxy regeneration has been postponed.

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).


You will lose:

  • any in-mission progress
  • all graphics options, which includes your window/borderless/fullscreen setting.
  • if any options have been removed or added to a new version, then all menu options (not just graphics) will be lost.

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.

A question: Why can’t we add any missions from assignments to favorites?

because it is assigned. :stuck_out_tongue: LOL!


Imma bit confused there, because I dunno if it will start moving CW or CCW first, and what was previous movement of the attack before that happened?

I don’t remember. I think to encourage exploration (so you’d have to discover those missions yourself)? Or some DB complication, perhaps.

It always starts the same way. Memorize it.

It always attacked in the same direction (CCW I think)
