Build V8.9 Released!

Recommended Posts

This is just a quick update for the game, designed to fix the issues with all the civilians being hostile and all the aliens spawning as Androns (which meant they didn't have the correct sprites and didn't drop Plasma Pistols, which are an important part of the tech tree). Both these were effectively making the game unplayable.

Changelog:

  • Civilians will no longer appear as aliens on ground combat missions.
  • Pressing the hotkey for crouching will no longer execute the action twice
  • The combat GUI is raised from the bottom of the screen, allowing it to be used as scroll area.
  • Xenonaut soldiers can now be healed even when standing on alien corpses

Because I initially thought most of the V9 features would have to be included in it in order to fix the civilian bug, but then I managed to disable them.

Wow - this is soooo much more stable than the earlier builds and I've managed to play all the way through to the end of the tech/manufacturing tree for the first time. Nice one Chris :cool:

Chris,

Love the 'Combat Paused' flashing message.. Very nice! I'm not certain when that was added, but thanks very much.

Also, my first ground mission was at night.. Very spooky.

sorry if someone already said this but in ground combat esc key does not bring up a menu or save load option in 8.9. Did it get taken away for now?

You don't need to report it, it's already reported. :)

No you see matthew, saying something 10x over gets people to pay attention to you, including YOU!

Thanks! I almost forgot about mentioning this one. :)

That's the stuff... Last I played was Build 6.2... and GODDAMN you guys are good !!! I knew it was worth not testing out a bit. I know I somehow let you down by not testing the builds, but I just wanted to see the improvement work you are doing. And if this game does not go award winning, I really don't want to live on this world anymore !
