Optimization

  • ­č¬ÉSignificant performance improvements have been made to many of the game’s systems. This should create a much smoother gameplay experience for players with less powerful computers or very large cities
  • Disabled error logging by default
    • As the game has become more stable we no longer need to constantly log any background errors. This should result in a slight performance increase for players
    • If there are consistent issues in a save file error logging can be enabled from the settings menu before submitting bug reports

Quality of Life Changes

  • ­č¬ÉAdded Truck Queue
    • Truck production can now be queued, as long as you have the credits you can start queueing trucks in your transport hub once it’s online
  • Holding down the increase or decrease dedicated workers button on the employee management panel will now continuously add or remove dedicated workers
  • Added tooltip to the button for increasing storage space in the spaceport and council hall when the player cannot afford the upgrade
  • Updated the rival selection button

More Fire Quality of Life Updates

  • Added a progress bar to buildings that are on fire
    • This bar will display the current fire intensity on the building and should make it easier to see which buildings need to be extinguished first
  • Added a warning notification when any building catches fire
    • This notification appears similar to the building under attack notification
    • Clicking the notification will center the camera on the first building to catch fire, or return to city view when inside a building
    • The notification will tell you how many buildings are on fire, and the current fire intensity of the first building to catch fire

VFX

  • Added VFX to trucks when they get upgraded in the science lab
  • Added VFX to operational air purifiers

Balance Changes

  • Rebel ships have -20/-30/-40 HP for Tier 1/2/3 respectively
  • Rebel ships with Gatling guns are weighted as more difficult and should not show up in earlier waves as often
  • Player ships have -20/-40/-60 HP for Tier 1/2/3 respectively
  • Building construction time is 30% faster for all buildings
  • Increased the time it takes for an extinguished building to reignite
