2019.1 release notes

Expected deploy date: February 4-6

Module changes


  • New RS9 Weapon module: DART Launcher
  • New RS6 Transport module: Dispatch
  • Leap: Added preparation time (depends on upgrade level). Cooldown increased to 10m/(4d4h in White Stars). Can now be used in Stargate sectors in White Stars. Fixed issue where Leap would fail if the closest teleport object was the star.
  • Vengeance: Damage greatly increased, especially on early levels
  • Teleport: Fixed issue where teleport line was not displayed if the teleport target was destroyed in the meantime.

Blue Stars

  • Maximum lifetime increased to 5:20
  • Destiny will never cause teleport to an asteroid whose dock point is outside the safe area, and attempting to Teleport to such an asteroid will fail. 

Miscellaneous


  • When selecting any ship, its current target(s) will be indicated with an X icon
  • Red Stars can no longer be abandoned if a player still has ships in them
  • Blue Star distinction icons on profile circle scaled up
  • Blue Star distinction icons now show up on the Blue Star leaderboards

  1. Okay. So you still haven’t fixed the auto mine issue and ignore a lot of comments in the previous upgrade about it.

    Well, like I said in the previous upgrade I’m leaving. Shame because it is a good game.

    1. if you said you were leaving in the previous update then why are you only doing it now

    2. I don't think the auto-mine thing is a problem that needs to be solved.

      Acting like it's a bug that needs a fix isn't winning you any points on that front.

    3. Who cares, we need art storage station so I don't have to store my arts on planets

      Delete
    4. Colonel, I agree! Art Storage Station please

      Delete
    5. Automatically moving arts from the storage station to research station? Why not just make the research station have more storage

    6. it doesnt have to be automatic

    7. Still whining like a little girl Sean? Note how you haven't followed through with your threat to leave twice now. I'm sure you'll be here crying like a baby next update too. It's a level playing field, so stop whining and work around the "problem" like every other spoilt brat who complains when everything isn't exactly how they want it. The majority of us don't try to shortcut the hydrogen resource limit and strategise accordingly.

    8. Little boys whine too, no need to confine it to girls. Otherwise I agree with this anon response 100%. Grow up, Sean!

    2. Yes, all updates void WS replay, seems to me only way to free server space, deleting replays 😆 they call it Maintenance lol

    4. Replays aren't necessarily deleted. They're invalidated because they're not videos. They are a series of instructions that ships should follow to reproduce the match. When a module change happens, those instructions don't faithfully reproduce the match because the rules are different.

  4. What a great game, wirh all the updates, could you please add a art storage station, say hold 6 arts @lvl1, upgradeable to hold maybe a hundred. Something we could all really use. Stop hurting extra shipments

  5. First, increase of the h2 in ws asteroids, now serious nerf to leap. Using weapons as hunters is impossible in high level ws, thanks to the gate exploit with suppress/tp, so destiny was our only option. Without leap it will less effective and we will move back to the old boring mining race where the Corp with better mining modules always win. We are moving to the pay to win direction.

  6. Great update! Can't wait for some more new mods :)

  7. The only game survived in my phone more than a year !

  8. Brilliant game, made superb with Blue Stars, increased credits, hydrogen income from Blue Stars, bypass shipment delivery via Blue Star fragments and Shipment Relay, and increased crystal income from Blue Star leaderboard. The game couldn't get any better, or could it?

  9. Still can't wait to see a level 40 planet! I wonder are any of the top players ever gonna upgrade a planet all the way, and will that open the galactic to planetary zone?

  10. Please fix auto-mine. How many times do people need to ask for this?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Until you people can ask in a way that doesn't make you sound entitled to it.

      Delete
    2. "Fix" is a very ambiguous word. Define the problem and suggest a solution.

      Delete
    3. Don’t make it auto, allow us to turn it off or on. Or let people deselect sectors for auto mining.

      That answer your question

      Delete
  11. We need waypoint beacons! I want to be able to plan my own routes through a sector.

  12. Down vote for art storage

  13. The dart weapon seems to be hard to use. May you introcue some weapon that could penerate shield

  14. Deberian añadir un arma mixta entre dardos y bateria. Tambien añadir guerras con otras corporaciones. Pero no en estrellas blancas si no eventos que los oficiales puedan crear y el resto unirse para combatir.

  15. I just now noticed the AMAZING planet level animations. Orbiting space stations! Flights/maglevs? It's really beautiful & I think that your Steam launch will be huge. I did notice that the clouds are moving way too fast on terran planets. I'm no astrobotanist, but I imagine that there would be no surface vegetation at those velocities. Maybe it's a relative time thing as an observer. It's just mesmerizing,wonderful work. Thanks for including it.

  16. I have been playing a little more than 8 months now. Of all the app games I have played this is the most well balanced I have encountered. Like several other comments, I would love to see either an artifact storage facility or upgradeable storage at the research facility. I am wildwindcatcher playing in Explore Hades Corp. Thanks for a great game. I will be around for a long time.

  17. Been playing the game on steam and I've played 12 hours in the last two days.

    I love the chat feature there are some funny people online and very helpful answers for a beginner like me.

    I only can imagine what the future will hold for this game.
    Great game, keep the updates coming!
