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:

Skirmish between player, pirates and U'Guul:

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:

Indiedb.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.

Do not download the 1.07 patch from Desura. They have messed it up still.

If you want to patch your game from 1.05 follow this thread with the patches I have hosted.

Hi zacarias, download the 1.06 patch here:

Gamefront.com

Then 1.07 here:

Gamefront.com

Desura hasn't made live the fixed patch yet. Install notes in the forum.

Try going to the patch link from here:

Indiedb.com

Also disable any download resumers or anything, just use the browser.

Thank you Azrael. For anyone wondering, I was able to give Azrael an alternate link for the correct patch. Since the current 1.05 one on Desura is missing files. 1.07 full has been uploaded but again awaiting Desura authorization, if they don't break it again :)

I love Desura, but trust me they have a very needlessly complex way of delivering updates etc.

I think I am going to find permanant file hosting, and just let new customers download 1.07 from Desura and get all their updates from my website.

of course the updates will be on Desura too, just for anyone who wants them immediately, they'll be on the website.

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!
