2021.1 release notes

Expected release: June 7 - 11


New Module: Laser Turret

  • Unlocked at Red Star Eight

  • After a short setup period the Laser Turret fires on up to three targets.

  • The Laser will charge up independently for each target.


Red Star Changes

  • Upon reaching Red Star Five, players will be able to join in-progress Red Stars that have recently started.


Blue Star Changes

  • Players who have not completed their ranked matches for the day will have the option to wait in matchmaking indefinitely until a ranked match is found.


User Interface Improvements

  • Added “Jump Only Battleships” toggle for high level Red Stars.

  • Shipment sorting improvements (sorting saved client side).

  • The ability to re-link Warp Gates is now always available. Re-linking gates that have already been linked will cause the duration to be refreshed.


Bug Fixes

  • Restored colored text for various messages in the chat window

  • Turrets deployed from flagships will now be properly upgraded for higher level flagships

  • The status of “Jump All Docked Ships” should always be saved on the client now.

  • Bond can no longer be used on Relic Drone or Mining Drone.

  • Resolved an issue with Darts occasionally getting stuck when moving over the center sector.

  7. I would like to see just basic find player or find corp bar, when i want to find sameone by name in diplomacy station its impossible and also friend list when you communicate through global chat you cant just send message to friend player from another corp...so focus on this basic communicate and searching. (mobile android app)
    In the other side the game itself is perfect.
    Thanks very much

    1. 100% agreement. When it takes 5-6 toggles of next ship to get to your third BBS, it can be a bit aggravating.

      Delete
    2. also... (you think I am saying agree? Nope!)
      DISAGREE

  8. I would like to see "next selection" fixed, to change ships at exact order one after other. Currently this feature is broken, not changing sips in order. Tnx

    1. I agree whole heartfelt. It often takes 5-6 "Next" toggles to get to your third battleship. In higher level red stars this is extremely aggravating and causes problems.

    2. And also shipment relays - they should deliver crystals. It is a waste to move crystal shipments only with transports

  14. Seems to have broken the game for me - won't launch now, OS says I don't have permission to open it.

    2. Same thing with me, Kent. I'm only two planets from having a complete system and now, I can't play, anymore!

  15. I have a very old phone, but luckily I was able to play until this update. I hope this can be addressed. It is the only one game I enjoyed playing for years returning from time to time.

  19. Time wrap radius and barrier radius indicates randomly on white stars. Each time i refresh the time machine they disappears. Then after few hours forward their radius apears again. Awful update needs to be updated once again asap.

  20. Голубые звезды безнадежно испорченны! Пересмотрите баланс!

  21. Perhaps the addition of a timer on the red stars in progress join option would be helpful. Cool feature but I've no way of knowing how long the rs has been running.

    ReplyDelete
  22. In scanning RS the new "In Progress" How far into the RS does it show? Just scanning or further into the game.

    ReplyDelete
  23. You know what this game needs? I way to select how many people you want in a red star and if that is not met, you don't find one. It's stupid that one loses influence because they are the only one in an RS7. I don't want to do an RS7 unless there are three other people and I should have that option.

    ReplyDelete
  24. URGENT!

    The status of “Jump All Docked Ships” should always be saved on the client now.

    This is a new bug. Who really wants to have this saved? Please remove all the radio buttons when warping in and out of a RS. Nobody needs that to be saved, every warp is a different decision.

    ReplyDelete
  25. For me, I disagree. I like the new options, but I was always annoyed it never remembered how I last had them set (jump all, etc). If it now remembers properly, for me that's a good thing.

  29. Please put the option to enter only with bs in RS6, and show a map timer in progress. And they could put designs on the ships. and make available the option of light interface without skin and heavy with skin. could be skin like the ones from Battleships Apollo. Thank you very much for the new updates

  30. I can no longer run HS from inside Steam. I uninstalled, reinstalled and it tried to start, but I had to install Xcode(?). After installing Xcode, I tried to run and still cannot open the game.

    Are the devs aware of this issue?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I am not able to obtain the update and now, the game is locked out, for me. I have tried everything and have followed the instructions that were posted. I have played this game for more than three years, am now at level 161.I am playing on an old iPad 2, runing iOS 9.3.5. Is thia te reason I cannot get the update? Thanks for any help.

    Regards,

  34. I haven't been able too play since the previous update Last Year because you changed it to IPV6 (router required - internet) no longer CDMA. In that issue I submitted my issue then and you Andrea's wrote back that you had found, identified, but did you fix as I haven't been able to play HS since last year!

  35. Hey will there ever be carriers in this game, or the ability to teleport a group of ships? Feels odd that the hauler only has one support module.

  36. Would like to see intern corp blue star, just for fun
