Is it a good time to start a new game?
« on: November 17, 2018, 11:39:37 AM »

Or wait for any bug fixes?

Firstly congrats Alex on the 0.9 release , 1.0 should be close right?  ;D

Money well spent I reckon, I didn't even notice the numbers align. Had to dig out that old email for the cdkey.

Anyhows, other than the bug reported in the other thread where you can colonise stars which your not supposed to, are there any major bugs that are encountered that need fixing or should I just start a game? I'm the type that puts in hours into a game and if there is a new patch that causes the old savegame to be incompatible I'd rather just wait.

Thanks

Currently the game is very playable (ie the most awesome freaking thing ever). I haven't run into anything game breaking and my empire is growing nicely!

If this makes a difference: I'm going to do my best to ensure that the .9.1a release is save-compatible with .9a. That's not a promise or guarantee - something major that makes this impossible could come up - but I'd regard it as very likely that it will be compatible.
