This is an unstable release, containing big changes that may introduce new bugs. Changes include:

  • A new area, the Ember Waste, populated by a new faction and new space-dwelling creatures.
  • A "logbook" with brief, automatic summaries of important missions you've completed.
  • The "Outfits Expansion" reduces your ship's cooling if you install too many.
  • Turrets have limited turn rates and can each choose and track targets independently.
  • The game now moves at triple speed when caps lock is on (e.g. to speed up travel).
  • Pirate "raids" now depend on how well defended your fleet is, not how many freighters you have.

This is a stable release, focused on fixing bugs and improving usability in small, safe ways. That includes:

  • Fixed a depreciation bug causing random prices for outfits on some systems.
  • Eliminated "death benefits." Depreciation is now the main way that plundering is balanced.
  • Depreciation happens about 3 times slower than it did in 0.9.5.
  • Coalition jobs now "repeat" instead of only being offered once.
  • Fixed a bug where "surveillance" ships scan the player's ship over and over.
  • Added images for all the Coalition and Heliarch outfits.

There are many other changes, as well. For a complete list, see the changelog. Special thanks to the people who contributed to this release: @Alkallid, @Amazinite, @Bladewood, @harro.eu, @jafdy, @KiLEdEnNis, @MessyMix, @mootootwo, @Pointedstick, @SolraBizna, @striker, @toilethinges, and @warp-core.

@endless-sky endless-sky released this Jan 18, 2017 · 2239 commits to master since this release

This is an unstable release, focusing on adding new features and new content (which may introduce new bugs in the process). Major changes include:

  • Ship and outfit values now depreciate over time, which makes it harder to become absurdly wealthy.
  • The main view's zoom can now be adjusted between 25% and 200%, independent of the UI zoom.
  • Commands can now be given to groups of escorts instead of to your whole fleet.
  • New Wanderer missions, doubling the length of their story line and introducing a new ship.
  • New alien faction, the Coalition, with 16 new ships and about 70 systems and planets.
  • Scanning now takes time, to make dodging scans more interesting and less impossible.
  • Systems and planets can now specify MP3s to play as music or ambient audio.

The goal of depreciation is to lengthen the mid-game: the period of time when you are no longer flying the wimpiest possible ship, but are not yet so powerful that no battle is a challenge or a threat. Ships and outfits lose value each day until they're a year old, at which point they are worth 25% of their original value. Captured ships and plundered outfits always start out fully depreciated.

The new "tactical commands" work like an RTS game: you can select groups of escorts by clicking and dragging or by shift+clicking, and assign number keys to groups with Ctrl+#. All the previous escort commands now only apply to the selected group, and you can also issue attack or move commands by right-clicking. The view can be zoomed in or out using the mouse wheel in order to see the "big picture" of what your fleet is doing.

There are many other changes, as well. For a complete list, see the changelog. Special thanks to the large group of people who contributed to this release: @Amazinite, @barthalion, @Bladewood, @CH-de, @comnom, @DingusShingleton, @doches, @Elyssaen, @gecko-locator, @Isaacssv552, @jafdy, @KiLEdEnNis, @kozbot, @LocalGod79, @MillerNerd, @Pointedstick, @retrue, @TJesionowski, @warp-core, and @Wrzlprnft.
