Dear engineers,

Today is the last day of the lunar year 2022, which also marks Dyson Sphere's 2nd anniversary. Two producers are now in the hospital, awaiting the birth of their baby - let's say, the first new member of Youthcat Studio in 2023.

Following this upcoming "inauguration" and the New Year holidays, the team will continue to work on the combat system. It was a regret that we were unable to bring you special events on this 2nd anniversary, but we hope to create a memorable experience for the 3rd anniversary of Dyson Sphere Program.

In 2022, we've gone through a lot. It's the support and encouragement from all of you engineers that has helped us get to where we are today. We still face many challenges in the combat system. However, we will not give up and will work tirelessly to make Dyson Sphere Program the best we have in mind.

The combat system is our top priority for 2023 and is the only destination on our Roadmap in 2023. We will, as ... Read more

Hi engineers!
A belated Happy Halloween! We've added some fun features to the Storage MK.I and some convenience to Icarus' universe for sustainability work. Let's check out!

[Version 0.9.27.15033]
Features:
  • Now, Storage MK.I can be built on top of the Splitter. In this way, the cargo in Storage MK.I can also be distributed in and out via the Splitter. However, please note that this feature can only output cargo with a stacking quantity of 1.
  • Added two new statistic options in the right information panel of the Planet View and Starmap: "Mining Planned" and "Not planned yet" of veins.
  • Added warning hints and directions for garbage blocks. Icarus will no longer have to search for a needle in a haystack or, to find a garbage block in the universe!
  • Added a new switch for the Metadata function at the top right corner of the Tech Tree. After disabling Metadata, the Buyout button in the Tech panel will...

Hi engineers,
We're about to start a holiday break, and we couldn't resist updating with some fixes before that. Have fun!

Features:
-Added new models (LOD 0/1/2) and textures that belong to [Quantum Chemical Plant]. Finally, no shared models! But the VFX is still in the making.
Changes:
- Modified the priority of Logistics Bot to put/collect items from Icarus. Now the priority to put/collect items from inventory is higher than before.
- Modified the priority of putting items in the Storage. Now items collected from Icarus inventory will be prioritized into the red compartment (the restricted ones) of the storage.
- When the mouse hovers over the logistics compartment of Icarus, the estimated delivery speed capability of the corresponding item will be displayed.
- The Logistics Distributor panel now can display the number of successfully matched delivery routes and the number of routes outside the delivery range.
- The operating distance of the ... Read more

Hi Engineers,

We are releasing a trailer for the combat system today. The Dark Fog is spreading in the universe. It will be a time to make up your mind for new production and battle.

[/previewyoutube]

However, due to the huge content and difficulties we encountered when developing the combat system, we had to postpone the launch to 2023. But we really do believe it's worth the wait, and we hope you can understand this decision.

On the bright side, the delay will not affect the update of existing content. The update for late September was set for logistics. It will bring you more convenience in obtaining desired items from complicated production lines.

Last but not least, thank you again for your support! We will continue to strive for a better Dyson Sphere Program.


Looking forward... Read more
