Interplanetary Update #4: Lobby Chat, Trading Cards and So Many Planets!

The beautiful Noxious

The time has come again for Interplanetary update! This time you're up for some graphical additions, a new place for chatting and something to trade. So, let's get to it.

What's new?

You might have guessed from the update title that the biggest news on the block is the newly installed lobby chat. Now you can chat not only in the game, but also in the game room lobby.

On the graphics side: another planet has been added for you to play with - the beautiful and warm Noxious. In addition to that, there are plenty of new non-player planets and suns. It makes this the official debut appearance of the famous Blue Sun.

And for dessert - Steam trading cards for Interplanetary are now ready to be traded any time!

Gotta catch 'em all!

Interplanetary Version 0.4.4061_EAC_5
  • Lobby Chat
  • New Player Planet: Noxious
  • New Planets and Suns
  • Steam Trading Cards, Badges and Emoticons
  • Defense Building Visibility Decreased

That is all for this time. Enjoy the updated Interplanetary and don't forget to leave your comments and opinions in the survey form!

Interplanetary is available on Steam Early Access.

Interplanetary Update: Sounds and Shapes

Cities, now 100% more lively!
Update time! Today we bring you a couple of small, but interesting changes.

The most obvious update is the inclusion of actual graphics for cities and buildings. This changes the intel system quite a bit, since we've decided to let players see the structure graphics regardless of their intelligence points. They just won't be able to see any details, such as the exact type of the building or its condition. Targetable weapons should now be much more useful and we've done slight changes to their values to accommodate for that. Tell us what you think!

Another visible, or rather audible, change is new music. We've added a couple of extra pieces to increase variety. You can expect many more in future updates.

Interplanetary Version 0.3.4027_EAC_4

  • New graphics for cities, buildings and ruins
  • Different craters for different weapon impact points
  • Additional music for build phase and action phase
  • Targetable weapons damage reduced
  • Shield Defense doesn't block missiles anymore
  • Sound effect fixes
  • Networking host migration fixes

Sure, you could fire blindly, but that little dot there may well be a kinetic defense.
That's all the changes for this week. We had to skip Whack-a-Dev last week due to scheduling problems, but we'd still appreciate it if you tried out the new changes and gave us some feedback!
