    Dear Galactic Survivalists!

    Today is the day: we are leaving Early Access, starting into the post-Alpha development phase.

    This means:
    1. We have removed the Alpha-tag from the build number, as this term was tied to the Early Access phase.
    2. The version will now read 1.x instead of 13.x or 14.x etc. This had to happen as well to make a clear cut.
    3. Everything beyond that, development and refinement of features will stay pretty much the same. The development planning for v1.1 will start soon (after a little, annual summer break) and will also take the feedback and results of the Game Survey 2020 into account!
    For those that are new to this topic or in case didn't read the announcements yet, please have a look at the links below for all the info and details!

    Initial Announcement:
    https://empyriononline.com/threads/empyrion-galactic-survival-leaving-alpha-early-access.94778/

    Addressing often-read concerns:
    https://empyriononline.com/threads/leaving-alpha-early-access-some-clarifications.94900/

    To accompany this step forward, we also updated the trailer in some important details.



    An all new trailer is planned for this year.

    In terms of today's update, we have worked primarily on fixing and squashing a few more bugs. For example evergreens, like the bike launching you to space, turrets having a gentle pause instead of tracking their targets, your bases and ships missing whole areas (MP) and others now should be fixed. ;)

    Please have a look at the changelog below for more info.

    As fixing bugs and issues is one thing that will be more in the focus now, the same procedure as for all the Alphas also applies for the new development stage:
    Thanks in advance for all your dedicated help, repeated re-testing and re-reporting and all the other contributions to the bug and QA sections of the forum! :)

    Keep on having fun and HAPPY 5th ANNIVERSARY!

    Yours,
    Empyrion Dev Team

    Closed Alpha Group & Builders League

    No. The current version does not have any savegame breaks.

    If you are using the IvD Scenario, then you might possibly want to restart as the content changes (POIs, Playfield changes etc pp) do not update for old savegames. Although the changes are not major (fewer drones, fewer asteroides on black hole, improved VOID planet) and a restart is not really mandatory at the moment.

    Delusional developers.

    This game is in no state for official release, and i hope my steam review cautions those away from this farce.
