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:

hi, Space empires is a 4x, expand, exploit, exterminate, explore game. I am not surprised therefore that vod is nothing like it.

Since VOD is primarily a RPG inside a sandbox.

Completely different genres. It would be like saying Battlefied is far from the alpha centauri games.

Bit of a surprise. I sent them the necessary things, but didn't get a date when it would be on!

But yes all I confirm is that it should be on before the new year. All daily royale customers will receive an email. I wanted to do the 'sale' here too but as we had already done one pre-launch, it was a no-go.

But you do understand, that Dailyroyale is just one more storefronf for same Desura platform? I mean, its run by Linden, its use same account system (albeit its allows to purchase without registration), files dispatched from same servers, it can be redeemed here. Only real difference - limited amount of copies on sale.

Yeah I get it. It's more of an exposure thing.

Well the Desura client side install/update and execution is working now. It is at 1.0.7.1, I've uploaded a patch which should update your game 1.0.7.5.

Also the patch is available at the alternate download on gamefront, see below comment, or the alternate patch download thread in the forums here on desura ( which has instructions on how to manually apply the patch)

We also mine from space now, no need to land :)

Or deploy mining drones, but I get you, it is something which would compliment the game well.

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!
