Early Access version 98.3

MAIN CHANGES

:warning: If your game crashes, ensure that you are using v98.3 (v98.1 and v98.2 are problematic)

:warning: If you can’t start a mission because you get the “ Other side closed connection ” message, it’s because you have mounted more equipment than you own. I’m not sure how this can happen, but as a workaround in the meantime, unmount everything from your Mission Config and try again.

:warning: Also, it’s very important you report any “ looped sounds carry on playing ” that happen to you with this version.

Another maintenance update. The main change is the addition of Christmas content, because… you know, Christmas. Oh, and Absolver now has a “max power” level.

This is the first version in which you can select a permanent language for the game. There are some things you need to keep in mind, however:

  • The languages are still not professionally checked, so your mileage may vary.

  • The translation downloaded from the server is the “most popular” translation at the time. It is NOT your own translation. So you may notice discrepancies to what you see when pressing Ctrl+T.

  • The translation is downloaded from the server once and then never updated again. If you wish to download the most current version, then you should re-select your language in the Language screen.

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).

COMPATIBILITY

You will lose:

  • any mid-mission progress
  • all graphics options, which includes your window/borderless/fullscreen setting.

@InterAction_studios can you make the multiplayer leaderboard toggleable with a keybind?
In this image the leaderboard is taking a lot of space which will cause confusion for sure

I’m more disheartened by the overwhelming green tint that it has, I’ve already suggested removing the green tint from stars since green doesn’t exist in the natural spectral classification, if green stars were to be added, they need to be a separate fictional class of stars.

Fixed in v.99 :medal_sports: Bug

There is no green color in my gradient. This is an artifact when transitioning from yellow to cyan in RGB space. I don’t know if/how this can be easily fixed. I’ll give it some thought.
