3079 has hit a milestone -- BETA is now history! You should expect a much more reliable and polished gaming experience.

Posted by Phr00t on Apr 10th, 2012

Hey all,

3079 has hit a milestone and no longer considered "BETA"! Players should now expect a more bug-free and stable playing experience, both in single player and multiplayer. 3079, however, isn't complete -- I'm sure there are still a few minor bugs kicking around, and I'd like to get in some more highly requested features like maps and more destructive items.

This most recent update was all about tying up some loose ends. There was a hanging bug introduced in v2.14 which should now be fixed, and a long-standing Windows crash-on-exit should be fixed. Finally, as a result of 3079 hitting its "Stable" status, the price will no longer be reduced. The full price of $12.49 has gone into effect!

Here are the complete list of changes:
* Fixed a hanging crash that happened randomly
* Fixed a Windows crash when returning back to the Main Menu
* Items will drop from targets you've done significant damage to (instead of just getting the last shot)
* Exterior building walls (and doors) are now destroyed by capital ship fire
* Mini fighters now shoot accurately when banking and rolling
* Confirmation key (default F2) is now configurable
* Player lists in multiplayer games now show levels
* Levels are now properly synced between players in multiplayer
* Buildings will no longer be generated near (or within) city border walls
* Added a new multiplayer command "/givecredits" for exchanging credits
* Camouflage increases in multiplayer now require at least 10% damage to be dealt
* Accidental bullets and splash damage won't hurt your faction so much anymore
* Mining skill should increase a bit quicker when using a higher level drill
* Automatic player saves now happen more regularly
* The demo version of 3079 can now run dedicated servers for full versions
* Characters and mini fighters now rotate up & down correctly in multiplayer games

Out of beta, huh? 3079 has made some VERY impressive progress, but I still don't really think it's anywhere near polished or fleshed-out enough to be considered "finished". Still, it was on discount for a generous amount of time, and it isn't nearly as primitive and buggy as is was when I bought it, so I guess it's all good.

Keep making improvements and hopefully you'll keep seeing sales even at the $12.99 price point.

I'm glad you are liking the progress of my game, but please do not put words in my mouth. I never said the game was "finished", and I even said the game was "not complete" in this news item.

The game is out of beta because it is stable, full of fun features & offers a complete gaming experience (even if more things can be done).

This game amazes me. You must have put in a LOT of hardwork to make something this awesome and vastly superior to minecraft. I know it is not a clone of minecraft, the other games came out BEFORE minecraft.

According to this page:

Desura.com

You already own the game, so you shouldn't have to buy it again..
