Interplanetary Alpha Update: New Features

It's finally here: a huge alpha update, full of interesting new features and fixes to test drive! Might also be the final alpha update that will be available with a code, if there are no massive issues with it. We're steadily rolling out towards the beta version and we have something different in store for that.

Anyways, here's a little list of all the major features in this one:

  • Intel Mechanics
    • You now need to build Intelligence structures to be able to see your enemy's structures; however it's also possible to hide your activity by building counter intelligence structures.
  • Tech Tree
    • An experimental, simplified tech tree lets you unlock buildings and gain additional bonuses.
  • Construction Yards
    • Structures are now functional only the turn after they're placed on the map.
  • Ruins
    • Destroyed buildings leave behind ruins
  • Networking Fixes
    • Better stability for matches with more than two players

Unfortunately, online play still doesn't work properly for people using a mobile connection, but we're working on fixing that for later. 

The update can be downloaded for Windows, Mac or Linux from using the alpha code. If you don't have a code, you can ping us at Facebook or Twitter and we'll get you one.
