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:

Engaging U'Guul warships with the assitance of Eurian and G'Lani military patrols:

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.

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.

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.

Hi everyone,

Update on the 1.07 download

The stand alone download works fine (the file list on the right) it is the Desura client install/play which is borked.

I recommend downloading the stand alone file for 1.07 for the game and then grab the latest patch for 1.07 here:

Desura.com

Just don't launch/play through the Desura client until the issue with that aspect is resolved by Desura. I downloaded the stand alone version myself to test it.

This is the link to the stand alone: Desura.com

But you should see it on the file list to the right under releases and under downloads in the area above the box shot of the game. Thanks,

Now that I know the issue is client side with the Desura client, I've uploaded a .EXE installer in place of that stand alone zip file. (which should go live soon) So it is much easier to download and install the game and bypass having to use the Desura client.

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.

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!
