Early Access version 87


This is a small update that corrects small issues with the Galactic Cup (and also adds some small quality-of-life features). Also, the current Galactic cup is now in its final knockout phase, so the Galactic Cup medal is now within reach for the winner!

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.


Why is this a tweak and not a new feature?

So this depends on the player’s color theme right?

iA, while translating newest strings I found a typo in Knockout Phase description.

guelling instead of gruelling :slight_smile:

It’s not important enough to be a new feature.


Thanks, fixed.


Can you add an indication that the player is done with the quest in K.O phase? e.x: ticks

Would be impossible, as those backgrounds depend on the code


How about add Background?

CI4 Supernova Background: Play Supernova Mission and set the background supernova

CI4 Space Burger Background: Play Droid Raid Mission and set the background Space Burger


Nothing new ._.

You should’ve asked if they will be the same duration first because nobody will like 9x9 wave-long for other types.
