Okay, so in our last news update (which I'll admit was a while ago, sorry guys), we had a bit long list of items we were working on.
Here's what's left, as of a couple of days ago:
1. Hive Tyrant:
- Center synapse marker
1. Unify weapon FX (only Tyrant missing)
2. Check and update for missing sounds
1. Hollow's suggestions:
- Research time and cost changes (?)
- Carnifex roster redesign (?)
And we're currently testing a new version of 0.5b3. It's been a lot of work, particularly given that most of it has fallen to just one of our team members, but we're getting there.
So we seem to be getting the same three questions over and over from new people downloading 0.5b2. To save time, here they are in short form, with their relevant answers:
Why don't I have a builder?!
Click the button at the centre-top of the UI bar across the bottom.
Why does my build menu go away when I select a unit?! Why doesn't it come back when I de-select that unit?!
Because selecting a unit de-selects the hivefleet - exactly the same as when you click a unit that isn't your builder, you won't have your builder selected.
Why is the AI not doing anything?!
Have you installed the CPU player patch yet? It doesn't always fix the problem, but it does for some people. We think it should be entirely fixed in 0.5b3.
