EXECUTE UPDATE 66

NAXX IS OUT EVERYONE!

Update 66 rolled out, go and wreck it!

New stuff

  • New, animated main menu background!
  • 8 Planets now accessible in total!
  • Colonies and Fortresses have been added:
    Space stations cannot be conquered directly but can be ransacked (doing so will lower their prosperity level). Space stations are now dependent on the colony/fortress they are attached to. Conquering the colony/fortress a station is attached to grants control over the station.
  • The rewards for conquering a certain territory are now displayed to allow you to make the best decisions
  • NPCs of rival factions can now attack you
  • Popups will appear each in-game month to tell you how much you earned through your territories
  • Your companion will now follow you in towns
  • You can dismiss any NPC from your forces (except your companion)
  • Stores will now display their restock cooldown
  • Items will now display their selling and purchasing price
  • NPCs can join factions
  • Reaching a certain affinity with NPCs allows you to integrate them into your team
  • NPCs now have personality traits influencing their stats (up to 4 randomly assigned out of a pool of 40)
