0.8.1 Release!

Hello Galaxy,

This took longer than expected, but I have here for you the 0.8.1 release. Download it here.

Version numbers are funny phenomenons, especially if you’re a one-person team that doesn’t need a tremendous amount of organizational strategies. The jump from 0.7 to 0.8 is meant to reflect the tremendous technical changes, and to make me feel better about throwing so much time at it.

Major features:

  • Most Regions have less open slots to develop.
  • Clearer interface for trade deals
  • Some framerate improvements
  • And a lot of background changes to the code

Right now, you probably won’t notice those background changes because they merely replicate what the game could already do. However, they have paved the way towards a more glorious future, and will eventually help accommodate the implementation of public Internet support and solve other networking issues.

To accommodate the changes, most of the non-UI code had to be rewritten. The result will work better in the future, and tends to work better now, since it is more simple. However, since so much of it is fresh, expect a host of new bugs too.
