Greetings Founder. A new update is here, finally introducing the long-awaited ability for multi-ship combat.

Known Issues 

  • Some localization is missing from the game still
  • Connected and upgraded parks are missing thumbnails on their selection panels
  • Employees currently prioritize storing resources in the closest available storage rather than one that is accessible by trucks
  • If you think your employees should be using trucks when they are not, please make sure there is no valid storage that is not connected to a road for that resource within walking distance of the mine
  • Sometimes an attacking rebel ship can become untargetable when it should be destroyed, causing the attack wave to persist indefinitely
  • This can be resolved by saving and loading, which will allow you to finish off the ship and end the attack wave
  • Energy Plants may not display a “No Fuel” tag if there is a small amount of fuel left in a fuel tank, but not enough to run the Energy Plant
  • Turning on Single repeat in the music player will not stay toggled on when the music player is closed
  • Removing workers from a ship with a shield generator can cause the shield to appear to still be on with nobody operating the device
  • If a building is renamed during construction, canceling that construction will cause the name to be applied to the empty tile.
  • If a resource in the Spaceport or Council building is required for construction, that resource is not prioritized and construction will take longer than usual
  • If a building is not constructing, we recommend canceling the construction and placing it again so that different resources are reserved.
  • This usually occurs with Isotopes 1!
  • If resources are filtered from a container to be moved to a different one, they can still be used for construction, causing longer than usual wait times
  • To solve, re-enable the filter on the box they are in to cancel the move resources job so that they can be used for Construction
  • Resuming a save file will show negative fuel if the game starts paused, unpausing will resolve the issue
  • Some Tutorial pieces do not have VO currently – they will need to be advanced manually
  • If your computer turns off in the middle of a game due to power loss or updates, Steam Cloud Sync may corrupt your save files
  • If the entrances to Citizen devices (Habitat Pods, Monetization Station, and Conversion Capsule) are blocked, Citizens will lie on the ground, in the air, or through other devices
  • If a building is entered while paused, sometimes all Employees and Citizens will be in T-Pose
  • Trucks may not travel extremely long distances in a very big city
  • Windows N users will need to install the Windows Media Feature Pack from the Windows Store – it’s required to play the videos in the game
  • Linux users have significant trouble getting the game to run via Proton – we are not officially supporting Linux at this time so there is not a lot we can do for you, sorry!
  • Performance can decline the larger a city gets
  • It’s possible but rare for the camera to become stuck when exiting a ship in combat
  • Phoning an Advisor during the step where instructed to view the panel will cause their dialog to be cut off in favor of the final step of the linear tutorial
  • When two Factories are connected, their interiors (and exterior) will flip around
