I’m very happy to announce the release of the 0.35a preview version of Starfarer!
At a high level, here are the new features of this release:
- New fleet command scheme, as discussed here
- Fleet command tutorial to show you the ropes
- The Codex interface, packed with useful information about the ships, fighters, and weapons. Includes lore for most of the weapons and a few of the ships.
- Mods need to be updated to show up on the list, as a few changes are incompatible with the previous version
You can read the full patch notes here. Notably, ship refitting and custom battles are not in this version and are planned for the final 0.35a release.
While I’ve got you here, I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all your support and feedback. A number of changes in this build have been inspired by the community in one way or another, and I can honestly say Starfarer wouldn’t be where it is now without your help and support!
Update: uploaded a new version fixing a crash if you click on a disabled ship on the map. So, if you picked up the first release (starfarer_xxx-0.35a-pre-RC1), may want to grab this one (starfarer_xxx-0.35a-pre-RC2).
As a bonus, two missions have a new hand-painted nebula background that just missed the initial release.
