What about patch notes? Been over two months since the last update on those.

Lots of options!

Yeah, I'll probably update the patch notes soon-ish. Been already thinking about that! Just want to wrap up a few things before doing it, so they're just about complete.

Is "Soon-ish" better than "Soon™"?

Hard to tell with these things... ;D

0.8 confirmed to release today

I wish I was a part of that parallel universe.

You are transported to an alternate reality, where the Starfarer team releases constant community updates and flash pieces to cover up that it's development process takes two steps backward for each step forwards.  Whenever a feature nears final iteration, development time is instead shifted to broadening the scope of the project in an apparent quest to appease every imaginable community demand.  Core gameplay systems are subject to constant, major overhauls that often put them in direct conflict with stated design goals or invalidate countless hours of developer time in other aspects of the game.  In the third week of March, 2017, another such update is pushed onto the live servers without testing, fixing a few things and breaking a few more.

It is notable only becuase is the last communication that the community will ever receive from Fractal Softworks.


In the dead of night, Alex boards a plane back to Russia with a suitcase full of Kickstarter money, and the final finger on the monkey's paw curls shut.

Go play the entire Final Fantasy series, including any side games and remakes.
Then the Command and Conquer series.
Then finally become a micro/macro god and defeat South Korea in Starcraft Broodwar.

Learn to play Starsector while blindfolded.
Locate enemy ships with sound.
Identify ships and weapons using smell.
Assess the UI with taste.
By then, 0.8 will surely have been released.
