Between the Stars is a roguelike game where you play as a captain of a military spaceship. The final goal is to get to the capital of the Republic to defend it from the attack of the outer worlds. During the journey you will have to make decisions that will affect your ship and crew, buy and upgrade weapons and systems of your ship and fight with enemy ships.
I've redesigned the right panel where energy control and skill selection appear. Also I added a new feature to this panel that is pretty cool, it detects which is the last controller being used and the buttons change their position accordingly.
Controls for this panel have also been changed. Before you had to pause the game to access these buttons. Now they are activated with a button combination or a keyboard key.
There's another new feature that allows the player to disable weapons to save energy. For example, this is useful when an enemy doesn't have shields, effective weapons against shields will not be needed and we can deactivate them. A new roulette-type panel shows the status of the weapons, their position on the ship and their energy consumption and allows us to enable or disable each weapon.
