After a couple of weeks of balance testing, a new patch is released that contains a bunch of fixes for things, balance changes and new artwork.
Due to the overwhelming traffic from users using the website and downloading updates the website has been offline for the last 15 days as bandwidth was exceeded. As such I will restrict future updates to likely one per month, unless there's some desperate fix needed, and encourage people to download the manual install from ModDB when possible.
Here's a complete list of changes below.
- Updated Ares to latest test build
- Updated manual
- Updated AI:
- Should now build more ore miners
- Now functions with less money, and less cheating (unless Brutal AI is enabled). Denying miners can actually cripple their eco
- Can now build and use the Cybernetics Core
- Gets to T4 slower, building other things first instead
- Should build more defences (particularly anti-air)
- Updated missions:
- S06: can no longer build Iron Curtain

- Fusion Thrusters:
- Duration reduced from 1 minute to 45 seconds
- Speed boost reduced from 60% to 50% increase
- Now also boosts rate of fire by 50% but decreases firepower by 25% (so an effective 25% firepower increase)

- Now has a cameo (in case of being reverse engineered)
- Cost reduced from 1750 to 1500
