In the future we want to advance the whole trade system to enable you selling the different sorts of resources each at their individually varying price...
As a space colony manager your aim is to explore and populate distant planets. Build up thriving and profitable colonies on a global scale without destroying your homeworld by triggering overgrowth and climate collapse. Imagine Earth is an open world simulation game with strategic puzzle elements that might turn into an environmental survival thriller. It all depends on your individual research decisions, your development plans and growth management abilities. The Game features a lot of challenging gameplay. Deal with threads like meteorite strikes, twisters and wild fires. Coexist and trade with natives, alien investors and hostile colonies, dig for ideon crystals, pacify riots and master the perfect production chain of many constructs and technologies avaible.
This Alpha release is a compromise. We really wanted to publish the new mission on Magni and already postponed the release one week. But we still didn't manage to finish it.
Nevertheless we felt that it's time to release all the other stuff we have added - the new research system, the field navigation and a lot of small enhancements. We will publish the next release as soon as Magni is ready. This will be the case in two to three weeks.
In addition we have updated the demo to reflect all changes made since Alpha 10 - which is a lot!
The mission is not finished yet, but the planet itself is. So we made it available through the competition and free play modes. You need to finish the Bora mission to unlock it, though.
The new research system is grouped in 12 categories like infrastructure, agro technology and physics. Within these categories you can research 3-4 chunks that each cost a single fund. Some chunks only consist of researching a new tool (like mining) other chunks research technology that allow you to develop new upgrades for your buildings. Important: Whenever you load an old savegame you will have to reselect the research. To make this a bit faster you can keep the mouse button pressed when clicking a chunk and release it on the okay button.
The navigation mode now comes with a tool to highlight different field types. Enter the navigation mode by selecting the compass icon on the bottom center or by pressing the space key. On the left site you can now select the different categories you now from the sandbox build ring. Choose a ground type or building type to highlight the according fields on the planet. In addition the total number of fields will be displayed.
Imagine Earth now uses a hardware cursor. This is a small enhancement, but it finally ends the feeling of the game being really slow at times. That's it. Have fun and let us know how you like the new research. And stay tuned for Alpha 16 at the end of this month.
