The past six months were a ride beyond good and evil for me. Sirius has fallen, risen, barely avoided its own demise. But let me roll up all the stuff that happened since I forgot about IndieDB and the downfall of Desura - since I was a part of that.

First of all, the Greenlight Campaign; 24 days it took from posted to being accepted, and only 6 days after that I was able to release Sirius on Steam. The Votes, however, were really evened out. 51% Yes to 49% No - and I was about to experience that in the following months - Ratings on steam itself crashed, at one time being at 35% Positive. I was devastated.

Patching and Working on the game commenced, a stable server was made for the game, tradelanes left the game and recently came back, more ships were created, a new UI and 2D graphics renderer joined and now, here I am, on IndieDB, because I got remembered by a mail that some of you might want to hear what happened to Sirius. 59% Positive as we're speaking, new players coming in every half an hour...

It has been a ride. 2015 was good.

New Stuff

- Langley, Tier 4 Combat Ship (Req 40Combat)
- Endeavour, Tier 1 Mining Ship (No Req)
- Fixed Location Belts. 8 Belts never changing Positions
- New Tradelane Connections
- New Icons for Tradelanes
- Ship Level Limit is now in effect.

Fixes

- improved Tradelane handling. You should not fall out of it that often anymore.
- Death Message now displays the correct Name.
- You should be unable to buy ships when not having enough money.

Changes

- Reduced XP from Mining Low Level Ores
- Increased Amount of Rocks per Belt

IOTY '15

also i wanted to ask, how you will place the space stations, will be partially procedural? (the procedural thing goes in the planet it orbits) or will be hand made with a file filled with directions (this would be more easy to mod as the modder just have to get the right file the meshes and the direction) also will be planets landeable? if yes, there will be some sort of cities on these?

Hello, excuse my late reply, I had some Issues with my connection lately.
I am really liking your ideas so far and will consider how to add them to the Game.

First of all - Due to Multiplayer Balancing, Planets won't be landable in the near future. This is because I'd either have to go through massive scaling, which would put the player immersion off or Make the universe huge - Which poses the problem of very squishy textures.

At this very moment, i am, aside from answering you quite late, rewriting the universe generation and started making saving possible.

Greetings Dex

Sagt mal, @vodafone_de , ist es normal, dass in der Hotline schon nach hören des Namens mit Beleidigungen aufgelegt wird? Geht um Sicherheit
