Hi everyone, the game has been updated to version with 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:

Whenever I see starflight, I get excited. To remember all that fun landing on planets finding rare minerals and selling them. Upgrading your ships cargo hold with the money you made selling materials. I was really hoping you had some planetary landing system similar to that.

It's a huge leap to do both at the same time, space and planet. Took Binary 3 years with 5 guys. :)

I hope to add it, given enough interest in the game. Think of it as a stretch goal and it is a big one.

You didn't need to update you already had a version after 1.0.7 :)

That link was from my account, but you should see the stand alone downloads on the right side of your screen.

Highest Rated (2 agree) 8/10

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!
