2020.1 release notes


Expected release: January 6-10

White Stars

  • Each Corporation can unlock the Corporation Flagship after it collects its first Relic in a White Star. The Flagship can be taken to one White Star at a time, and can be upgraded with Credit contributions by all members. Later upgrade levels add modules to the Flagship, some of them not available for use on regular ships. The Flagship can be controlled by any Corporation officer.
  • Time Machine improvements
    • Scheduled Commands are sorted by time remaining to execute (earliest one on top)
    • Commands that fail to execute while the time machine is playing will highlight as red
    • Can now tap on different parts of the command interface to select the associated ship, and to move the time to just before that command executes
    • Maximum number of scheduled commands increased to 12

Yellow Stars

  • Warp Lanes can be automatically relinked to their last connection (use the new option in the Star dialog in your home star)

Red Stars

  • Transports ordered to leave before they are done loading all queued artifacts will get the option to delay departure until all the artifacts are loaded.

Module changes

  •  DELTA ROCKET: Speed increased by 20%
  • DESTINY: The teleportation can only happen to an asteroid field anywhere in the star system (will no longer land on a planet or stargate). All asteroid fields have an equal chance of the ship landing there. Cannot be activated if no asteroid fields are in the system.

Other changes

  • The information window for any Asteroid will also display the total amount of Hydrogen stored on that asteroid's sector

Hades' Star Roadmap - October 2019

Hades’ Star has been live for more than two years - almost 3 years if you count the pre-launch public beta. During that time we have been constantly improving the game. When we first launched there were no White Stars or Blue Stars, Red Stars had just 4 enemy types, the number of modules to equip ships with was about half, and there were no warp lanes or options to automate shipments.

Today I’m sharing thoughts on what the next 3 years *may* look for the Hades’ Star universe. These are not feature promises, and there is also no promise that the game will keep getting updates for 3 years. They are my current thoughts on what the
future may look like, should we continue to be lucky enough to have a passionate, sizeable fan base that continues to support the game and keep development sustainable.
