Beta 8 Changelog

Recommended Posts

Greetings Space Adventurers!

Here goes the Beta 8.0!

Selected parts:

  • Battleship cells are now associated with a specific system, focusing on one augments the chances to provoke a critical effect on the associated system,
  • You can now have multiple heroes supporting the same system,
  • And, as usual, some other features and bugfix!

As usual, we really appreciate your feedback (and/or bug reports...), so please, if you have additional thoughts or observations, don't hesitate to share them.

The Crying Suns development team.
