Distant Star 1.5

15 May 2011

I’ve just submitted Distant Star 1.5 to Apple for review. In keeping with the general theme of updates so far, this version brings a mix of new features, new content, and bugfixes/improvements:

  • Trade Build freighters (or their alien counterparts) and establish trade lanes between systems for extra income.
  • Completely revamped audio system, which should fix problems with the music dropping out on older devices.
  • Ships with special abilities (e.g. colonizers, freighters) now reload properly from save.
  • Added a button for warping the view to the player’s home system or, if a system is already selected, looping through all systems.
  • Victory/defeat screen should now draw properly on non-retina devices.
