    Hi Galactic Survivalists!

    After six weeks of intense Experimental updates, we are almost there!

    While we are working hard on the next Release Candidate, we are very excited to reveal the planned date for the upcoming public release of Alpha 8.0:

    June 12, 2018

    Thank you so much for all the valuable feedback and bug reports during this Experimental phase. Alpha 8.0 would not have been possible without you!

    For the remaining days until June 12, we will continue to work on polishing features and squashing more bugs. As indicated above, and depending on how fast we progress, there will be at least one more Release Candidate, which is planned to hit mid of next week, incorporating your latest bug reports and feature feedback.

    Please check back and have a look by then!

    Empyrion Dev Team

    PS: A Hotfix that addresses several issues in the current RC1 (like not being able to select different starter planets in Multiplayer), will be released soon - latest tomorrow.
    PPS: As a side note for those who asked concerning the upcoming public version update: we will keep Alpha 7 AND Alpha 6 available in the Steam library!

    I love when the often painful experimental version turns into the much more friendly 'stable' release. For a while we can rock on down the highway all together, and talk and consider what will be next. Then we bleeding edge types go off on our own and enjoy (?) the next experimental version. ;)

    There are so many things to love in this update; Eleon should feel quite proud of it!

    YEAH!
    Finally I can start a new game again. I disliked the borders since version alpha 3 so much, that I told myself: I will only play again, once those borders are gone. Well, it seems alpha 8 finally nailed it.
    Good job, Eleon.

    I really don't have that many problems & bugs like some people have, on my poor man simpleton system, so only serious problem I have with Experimental 8 that must be fixed is notorious 'frame skipping' on planets and especially in space - so fingers crossed for brave Devs & their (I hope) victorious results :D

    ... and new PLANETS ARE INSANELY GOOD!
    Every iteration of Exp.8 "Akua" is better then previous and with more details - this system with maps & stamps is so simple & ingenious, I can't even imagine what will people do & make in future with planets (& universe ;))

    Kudos & Good Luck :)

    So are you going to fix the fridge issue before you do full release? It be nice that the t2 fridge was how it was before 8.0. Now t1 and t2 have same amount of slots

    Actually there is no issue. As far i know the T2 fridge should have been removed. Prob they forgot to remove it

    Build 1644 :

    - Added new Group: FridgeBlocks (TechTree Level 0)
    - Removed Fridge T2

    They either left it for deco use.
    All 3 fridge have same power requierments anyway
