With Early Access happening later this week, I was busy setting everything up for launch day! Nonetheless, I managed to finish a small feature I was working on: the new system information command
It works just like its
PLI (planet information) counterpart. A given system identifier shows general information about the system like star type, faction affinity and micrometeoroid density. It also lists all planets with their surface type, population and resource concentrations. That should make scouting for a new base location a bit easier:
Just like with

While Early Access launches on Wednesday, the biggest technical change already happens on Tuesday: The replacement of the account management system that has been running since we launched AirlineSim commercially in 2007. It's going to be a bit nerve-racking.
The expansion of the universe is almost upon us: the formation of the fourth faction, the emergence trace resource deposits, the migration of commodity...
Tired of seeing your workforce disappear once new players arrive? Never fear! Molp to the rescue!
Attention Licensees: Early Access will also come packaged with a reset to the current game universe. A brand new world is on the horizon!
