So the developers are keeping to the Relentless Pace they promised. Yet somehow the Linux resolution is still an issue. The game can be played in Windowed mode with and odd resolution. But full screen spans both monitors. 🙁
Star Traders: Frontiers Update – Hats and Helmets
While the Rychart have long held a monopoly on the biggest and best hats. A trade alliance has finally available. This will release those hats to the Star Trader Captains of the galaxy. No, it doesn’t make any sense — but we did add hats and helmets! They can be combined with other character design elements like eyepatches for great effect. We’ve included 3 in this first update and will be pushing a bunch more options in soon. Now that there are so many fancy things, the AI is going to have to learn some new styles as well.
Star Traders: Frontiers Trailer (Linux, Mac, Windows):
The response to the new event log has been so overwhelmingly positive we couldn’t be happier. We’ve received some feedback on how to improve it and will be keep working on it each release. In this release, we’ve included a extra detail that lists how many Saving Talents you have left for any given Skill. We’ve also almost doubled the amount of narrative text being generated and plan to keep exploding that generator.
Death and Game Over
We’ve fixed a number of issues related to death, game over screen and surrender conditions. We resolve the rare situation in which a Captain could die, but then continue to live on as a ghost for a little while longer. Death always catches up eventually — check out Heroes of Steel if you need to learn that lesson. We also fixed the rules around imprisonment — you’ll always be doing at least a year of hard time now. Finally, we vastly improved the Captain Memorial screen that shows all your stats after you die. Try not to die — the new screen is good, but its not that good!
