While only being given a minor release version bump, this update is one of the most significant in a long time. A really nasty orbital bug is squashed in this release which should mean Queller's invasions are once again as deadly as you remember them from the days of yore. The focus has been on both naval and orbital improvements, with a side of updating the various playstyles to account for balance and meta changes.

  • Improved decision-making by Gold, Platinum, and Uber about when to expand their naval presence
  • Gold and Platinum more likely to try and get in the water if they don't have a naval presence but the enemy does
  • Changed how Gold, Platinum and Uber measure the need for land and naval anti-air defences and units
  • Ensured Uber Naval is only building land units that are amphibious or hover
  • Removed Uber Air personality
  • Platinum and Uber may build an orbital launcher to counter an orbital threat
  • Fixed Uber MLA still being too paranoid about nukes on planets it hasn't scouted
  • Uber will only use combat fabbers for minesweeping when it has confirmed the existence of mines
  • Uber will only build orbital fabbers on multi-planet maps
  • Corrected missing checks for Platinum in its assessment of whether it needs additional air
  • Replaced all checks using FocusTargetThreatRatio as it is exhibiting unexpected behaviour
  • Further checks to prevent overbuilding of air by Platinum and Uber
  • Uber uses less Gil-E
  • Slight adjustments to Platinum and Uber's decision-making process about their orbital launcher presence
  • Protect against some orbital edge cases
  • Tried to ensure hover and amphibious platoons don't get stuck on islands
