Patch Notes for November 19, 2023
- Fixed a bug where the Befarian and Terran troops weren't fighting it out
- Fixed a bug that was preventing Aluminum Tantalum Battery Research
- Fixed a bug where it was missing a quest after taking over Befarian Outpost 3. If you already have Outpost 3, you should get the quest now.
- Added General Chat (click icon in bottom left corner)
- Fixed a bug that was causing the quest dialog to redraw itself between certain quest steps.
- Fixed a bug where the research window was not updating when items in inventory were added/removed.
- Now if you cancel Research Nanobots on the Laboratory Tab, it can come up again.
- The game now allows you to sell and recycle equipment even if you needed it for a quest. If you do this, ask for help in General Chat and hope someone will make another for you.
- Once inventory was full, you couldn't loot new items until you landed somewhere. This didn't clear when you combined items that freed up inventory slots. This has been fixed.
Patch Notes for November 9, 2023
- The home screen was incorrectly calculating the combat power of Special Ops. This is now fixed.
- Fixed a bug that was preventing some quests from being turned in. This was only seen in test as far as I know.
Patch Notes for October 15, 2023
This is by far our biggest release yet. It might be easier to ask what hasn't changed. So much has changed we aren't going to list it all but here are some highlights
- You can now get a quest to take over Befarian Outposts.
- In the process of taking over Befarian Outposts you will encounter new quests, new achievements, new equipment, new ways to enhance equipment, new enemy ship types. To avoid spoilers, no details will be listed here.
- Recycling items now gives a chance for blueprints per level of item recycled. If you recycle level 30 Steel Plate, you will have the same odds of getting blueprints as if you crafted and recycled 30 level 1 Steel Plate. Because of this the crafting price has also changed. Creating level 30 Steel Plate will cost the same as crafting level 1 Steel plate 30 times. You will no longer have to craft and recycle hundreds of level 1 items for blueprints and when you replace and recycle old equipment, you will get more blueprints from it. The trade off is creating equipment is now more expensive as it is the price of a level 1 * the level.
- Lots of performance improvements.
- Better ship statistic reporting.
- New advanced fleet controls.
Patch Notes for Nov 20, 2022
- Fixed a bug where the result of arcade games were getting recorded twice.
Patch Notes for Nov 10, 2022
- Made a change to the last patch with asteroid mining. Now when it requires you to have played in the last week for the miners to continue mining... but the amount left on the asteroid is unimportant. So this will now only affect inactive players.
- Changed the manufacturing screen so the background of the items made now matches the border color for the same ship slot type. It was confusing when equipping new ships to remember what items would potentially fit in each slot.
- Changed the ship slot color for Nanobot Repair Modules. It was a purple that was way too close to the Power Supply Color. Now it's a dark green (green because armor is also green and nanobots fix armor - it should be dark enough to easily tell the difference between Nanobots and Armor)
- Fixed a bug in Firefox where it would ignore key input after withdrawing from a storage room or asteroid.
- Kills in Arcade mode now count towards quests and you get experience for them towards leveling. Quests, the Experience Bar, Achievements and Research windows are now available in Arcade mode.
- Shooting Martyrs instead of colliding with them now gives triple points and they drop a 1% buff to Shields, Power, Health or Damage for the remainder of the Arcade run.
- Duration of the current level is now listed.
- New Arcade tab in the Achievement Window with all new achievements. You do not get credit for achievements already accomplished. You'll have to do it again. Sorry!
Patch Notes for Nov 2, 2022
- Fixed a bug where typing in the search input of the market would make you leave the planet if that key was also bound to movement or a weapon.
- Fixed a bug that was preventing people from completing the quest that trades Steel for Platinum.
- Fixed an issue that was causing the game to sometimes load slowly, especially if you haven't logged on in a while.
- Made a change to asteroids so that after the inventory of ore gets higher than what all the miners on the asteroid can mine in a week, they quit mining. If you don't regularly pick up your ore, it will no longer accumulate forever.
- Made a change to the cast indicators to display better if you have weapons bound to arrow keys. It now shows an arrow, instead of ARROWLEFT, ARROWRIGHT, etc, which where overlapping each other.
Patch Notes for Oct 8, 2022
- Fixed a bug with 'Fastest Arcade Time By Level' where it was always updating your level time when you played arcade. This resulted in the data being your last level time instead of your fastest level time.
Patch Notes for May 11, 2022
- Fixed a bug where the Bentley Station Shipyard quest fails and leaves the quest in a state where you can't progress past it. (If the station blows up after you get it to the destination.)'
- Changed requirement on a repeatable quest from killing 10,000 Befarians to a mere 5,000
Patch Notes for April 2, 2022
- You can now shorten the build time of items at Bentley Station Shipyard with Black Diamonds.
- You can now click on Players names on the main screen under 'Most Achievements Earned' to view their achievements.
- A lot of progress has been made on Befarian Outposts. Taking over these station will be possible in the near future.

- Changed the price Fighter Blueprints when buying them with Silicon or Copper to better reflect market prices.
- Edward Manning's repeatable quests will now accept items that are higher level than the item he asked for.
- Fixed bug where Quantity/Level +/- buttons could get stuck while holding them down.
- Adjusted Mothership armor, shields and shield regen so it now scales up more slowly at higher levels. At higher levels you should no longer run into the issue where you can handle all the other ship types but just can't wear down a mothership at all.'
- Tractor Beams now consume power while in use.
Patch Notes for Jan 23, 2022
- Recalculated the level difficulty of repeatable quests to reflect the new difficulty of higher levels and Attendants/Mine Layers. And updated the green/yellow/red difficulty colors to better reflect this.

- Increased repair rate on Repair Nanobots.
- 3d Circuit Boards and MgB2 Super Conductors now show level information and stack sizes on their icon (and in the popup).
- Marketplace tabs now show level and stacksizes (if stackable) on their icons.
- Fixed a bug with the Level to 40 achievement that was requiring you to hit level 50 before it would trigger.
- Motherships missiles broke in the last release and wouldn't target ships. It's been fixed and the timer has been increased and is now displayed by the motherships name so you know when to expect it.
- Increased Martyr damage for Martyr higher than level 5. At higher levels they didn't scale very well and were no longer much of a threat.
Patch Notes for Jan 7, 2022
- New quests and other content. (No spoilers)
- Storeroom Available and Reserved Quantities have been merged into a single Quantity. Having separate quantities just didn't add anything and it was confusing.
- Reduced the cost to build Guided Missiles and Tractor Beams.
- Increased Guided Missile speed, and a bunch of other Guided Missile Suprises
- Added UI and button sounds.

Patch Notes for Nov 1, 2021

- Higher level players have been picking on low level Befarians and getting credit for it in repeatable quests. The quest now adjusts to your skill levels.
- Fixed a bug where recycling objects would only return 1 of an item. This should be much more rare now. Also the high end for what is returned has been reduced. The changes should more or less balance each other out but result in more consistent results.

Patch Notes for February 15, 2021
- Circuit Boards and Super Conductors that are level 2 or higher now have a chance to increase the item level of the final product. Before this change there wasn't really any reason to learn or use higher levels of Circuit Boards or Super Conductors.
