Hi everyone, the game has been updated to version 1.0.7.3 with 1.0.7.4 due out tomorrow with some enhancements to user experience. All reported crashes have been fixed and I have had no reports of crashes since 1.06

As I had said before, post release updates would be released based on user feedback and other general enhancements to user experience. The majority of changes in the patches now reflect that.

Here are some screens from the release version:

Engaging a pirate vanguard at a pirate base:

the description is still broken...

I have posted some news on my main blog here:

Voidofdarkness.com

since without pictures or video indiedb archives all news. And any news you try to post here, they automatically assume you intend it for site wide and not local to your page.

Hey guys, thanks for tracking, do you think you would mind playing a combat enabled only version? Since combat needs lots of feedback and opinions and other stuff to tweak and polish, I would really really appreciate it.

Hey guys, this was an early combat test, I will endeavor to do an updated video and replace this, but it was the latest video and MODDB requested a video after all.

The screenshots are a more accurate look, and the combat has changed alot. Since all of the enemies now have hard points and more decent images for lasers etc...

Someone rated this a ONE?! You HAVE to be kidding. I think that Desura needs to have a requirement for writing an actual review if someone rates a game so low; we are required to write them when we award a TEN.

Anyhow, I give this very good game an "8" because this isn't the full game. It does crash a bit, but, the potential is there for something very special. The developer has been patching and working on content additions.

Keep up the good work!
