Hotfixed to Alpha10b

Posted April 16th, 2015 by Tynan Sylvester

I’ve released a quick hotfix for Alpha 10 that should address some bugs, design mistakes and imbalances in the first released version.

You should get an update email some time today. Or, you can just download from your existing link (as it always gives the latest version).

Save games from Alpha 10 will still work. To install, delete your Alpha 10 install directory and unzip the Alpha 10b files to a clean empty folder (your save data is not stored in the install directory).

Change list:

  • Substantially increased the speed of joy gain.
  • Door locking is really door forbidding, so it happens instantly again and does not require colonist interaction.
  • Trees are sowable again.
  • The first enemy raider will never flee (makes him easier to capture).
  • Colonist names can now include numerals.
  • Fixed colonist outfit apparel search so colonists with guns will not take personal shields.
  • Improved colonist outfit apparel selection in general.
  • Some other smaller fixes.

Edit: Just realized comments were closed. Opening them…

    I was wondering why trees were made unsowable. I’m glad they’re back.
