But first, here’s a screenshot of the Psilon invading the Silicoid homeworld of Cryslon. Notice the unique colony structure for the Silicoids. Each race has their own.
Alpha 4.18 is now available. This patch fixes a few bugs and introduces UI textures into the game. You can download the latest version from itch.io:
Remember that you can report bugs and discuss the game on Reddit at http://www.reddit.com/r/rotp
Ship Combat – an error that was causing ship combat to hang has been fixed.
Allies using your transports – finally this problem has been fixed! It turns out to be related to a list re-use error that happened when one of your allies added or lost a colony.
Next Turn crash – I found another bug occurring during Next Turn when the AI was automatically reallocating your spending when a spending order completed.
UI Textures – after a player request, we are drawing UI elements with textures. Completed in this patch are all of the gray panels (colony/fleet/transport info, etc) on the Main galaxy map. Brown panels will get a different texture in a subsequent patch.
If you do not like the textures, they can be toggled off easily on the main menu screen.
Coming up soon will be the incorporation of the Sakkra ship graphics… hopefully this weekend!
Thanks again for all of your feedback!
