New Audio Drop System for Character Lore!

  • While playing Titan, audio logs will randomly drop
  • Logs are stored in the codex under the “Characters” section
  • Provides more insight into the game’s characters and their backgrounds
  • Logs won’t drop if player is idle
  • Logs will begin dropping after completing the tutorial, or immediately if tutorial is disabled
  • All audio can be accessed in the Codex after being unlocked

New Weather Event: Heatwave

  • Heat Waves will make it much easier for buildings to catch fire when they are being damaged
  • Be extra cautious of rebel attacks during heat waves!

New Technology Options Added to Tech Web:

  • Reduced Fire Pollution: Reduces pollution from fires
  • Reduced Fire Growth Rate: Reduces the speed that fire grows
  • Improved Fire Extinguishing: Employees will extinguish fires faster
  • Reduced Fire Damage Over Time: Reduces the damage fire does over time
  • Reduced Building Repair and Extinguishing Cost: Reduces the cost of repairing and extinguishing fires

Balance Changes

  • 🪐Increased time it takes for fire to spread to other buildings
  • 🪐Added a cooldown to recently extinguished buildings for fire spreading. This will stop fire from immediately spreading to a building that has just been put out

Improved VFX

  • Burning buildings that have an interior view will now also show fire when inside
  • Buildings that are on fire will display a red glow at their base, this should make it easier to notice when a new building has caught fire
  • 🪐Added lighting underneath ships which will make them easier to spot in crowded cities
  • Improved VFX on fuel devices and buildings, making it easier to tell at a glance if fuel pumps have low Xethane in their area

Migrant Ships

  • Added variants to migrant ships that arrive to deliver citizens and resources. Smaller loads will have smaller ships, while larger loads will have bigger ships

Rebel Ship Layouts

  • Added even MORE new rebel ship layouts

Tutorial Changes

  • Added a prompt for first time players to make sure the tutorial is enabled
    • Please note, if you are continuing from a previous build this prompt will appear once
  • Tutorial will only be automatically enabled for new players or players who have not completed/disabled the tutorial in the past

UI and Tooltips

  • Long custom names on buildings will now clip instead of scaling while in interior view
  • Updated Repair tooltip with a better layout
  • Improved Repair tooltip when player has 0 credits
  • Changed warning text from red to yellow
  • Added ingame tooltips for each victory card
  • Changed “Ready” text in the science tab, to a check mark
  • Added a duration bar to the communications window that will display how long the VO portion you are hearing is

  • Fixed an issue where you could be kicked out of shipyard view if a different shipyard was destroyed
