Beta 1 (Mid-August) Changelog

Recommended Posts

Good news, everyone! 
Here comes the first version of the Crying Suns’ Beta and its changelog (compared to the Demo version from the Kickstarter)
 
Gameplay

  • You can now go up to sector 2, and fight the first 2 sector sub-bosses
  • A lot of gameplay balancing (AI, costs, fight patterns, rewards, etc...)
  • 33 new events available in the game, some of which have an impact on the starting- conditions of your fight (For instance, you can now ambush an enemy as well as be ambushed by an enemy, or immediately receive or inflict critical damages)
  • 3 new enemy battleships added : Kosh-Buendia, Empire, Pirate
  • You can now sell units in shops
  • The starting hero roster now includes "generic"  random heroes (in the the end, specific faction heroes will need to be unlocked in-game)
  • Most enemies now have an engineering hero repairing their critical damages
  • Added a visual warning feedback when a unit’s path intersects with asteroids 
  • In-game menu allowing you to quit the game or return to the main menu (No “save” feature for now, be careful!)
  • Some balancing has been made to the "pursuit" mechanism, it should now be a bit easier not to get stuck in the "red" zone


Graphics and sound

  • Added some sound design to the intro cutscene (during the "talking" part)
  • Graphical improvements in the intro cutscene (during the "talking" part)
  • Various improvements on battleship lighting effects
  • The tooltip font size was slightly increased
  • Added Warning popups when using the last of your fuel and when retreating from an expedition
  • A lot of small graphical improvements everywhere in the game and some text corrections

 

BugFix

  • Fixed a bug where a weapon cooldown appeared stuck
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes it was impossible to target a squadron anymore
  • Fixed a bug where enemy AI had its units travel through asteroids
  • Fixed a bug where tooltips were not disappearing properly
  • Fixed a dozen other smaller bugs through the game (performance issues, misplaced objects, stupid AI moves, etc...)
  • Fixed a bug where the bug report popup was not keeping the game in "pause" mode

 

If you have questions about it, you can reply here ?

Enjoy!

Hey!

For now, as we still develop the dialog events, we modifiy and add text ingame quite often. That's why we prefer to wait for a stabilized version of the Beta (in terms of texts) before translating it into French.

So, I can't give you any delay, but it will come ?

  • Thanks 1
