Hi Galactic Survivalist!

We hope you all had a great start in 2020! We have been a bit silent on the current progress on Empyrion and you deserve to know what is going on behind the curtain.

While we still run smaller patches on the Alpha 11.5.x branch, the development on the Alpha 12 features (we are working on since early January), have already made some noticeable progress.

That being said, we want to share with you a brief summary of some of the features that will be in the next major update. These blog posts are currently in preparation and will be released in the next few days. Please excuse the delay.

In the meantime, we would like to announce our GAME SURVEY 2020: Participate here![survey.empyriongame.com]

Hi Galactic Survivalists!

Today we release Alpha 11.1 as a 'stabilization update' for Alpha 11. As the name indicates, we primarily focused on bugfixing and a few more refining changes.

For 11.1 we temporarily have reverted the new galaxy map to the previous version, as the new map needs more refinement.
Please feel free to tell us, if you want to either stay with this known map or if you would prefer to go with the new one - with some fixes and adaptions, of course. In the latter case, please give us feedback what needs to be improved to finally replace the old one - thanks a lot :)

Please continue to use the feedback and info threads pinned over here[empyriononline.com] for any ideas and suggestions on those topics.

Hi Galactic Survivalists!

Those community members who followed the pre-info, live streams or even actively took part in the experimental phase will already have some insight on how the Alpha 11 gameplay mechanic changes and additions like CPU points, new Flight Mechanics and all the other features will affect the way how the game is played.

Said that, and instead of giving a lengthy explanation here, we would instead ask any new and recurring player to do the following: PLEASE read through the pinned INFO AND FEEDBACK[empyriononline.com] posts before starting into a new game or giving feedback.

Alpha 11 is again a “game changer” milestone and we a... Read more

Alpha 11: Flight model, CPU, Docking

Hi Galactic Survivalists!

Most of you will have heard already about the features that are coming in Alpha 10.6, like the CPU, the new Flight Model, HV-to-SV docking and more.

Without further ado, some important general info on the CPU system and their use in the Experimental version.

The primary goal of adding the CPU system was to add a way to allow some basic specialization and an additional way to balance vessels in regards of thrust, RCS, weaponry and other parameters. Other features, added alongside CPU, will support that goal and open up alternative approaches. For example with 10.6 you do not necessarily need a (CPU costly) RCS anymore, because the position of thrusters will gain you a decent torque as well and the new aerodynamics lift/drag model will allow for SV designs, that can lift off on planets (with an...

https://empyriononline.com/threads/10-6-thrusters-performance-parameters-rebalancing.90779/

Hey everyone!
As promised we will release more info about what is waiting for you to TEST in the upcoming EXPERIMENTAL version.

Today I would like to share a big rebalancing project: Thrusters

The goal for this first version was simple: bring ALL thrusters into a consistent progression. A larger thruster should not only put out more thrust, but also be more effiecient than a summary of its smaller pendants in the same block-amount.

Example: If you stack two S Thrusters you should not get more Thrust than using a single M Thruster.

Of course this has a few other tradeoffs, but in general, with the current updated balancing, any larger thruster or one of a higher tie... Read more

UPDATE:

EXP: In the EXP Version it will be ON for the simple fact we want feedback and this way we get more feedback. Numbers will be more adjusted then what they are currently since we see aswell the current numbers dont work.

PUBLIC: You will have a global ON/OFF Switch ON ALL GAME MODES. With Default OFF till A11 ATLEAST

TIER SYSTEM: We will build during the EXP Phases a Tier System for the CPU. Cores that can be upgraded to a higer system. You start with a low CPU (you dont need a large ship when your lvl 5 afterall) work your way up to a higher system. Our example showed a max of Tier 3 core with 1600K max CPU for a CV. We also will provide Server Owners (prob on a per playfield level) what kind of Tiers you will allow on that Playfield

The EXP Phase will contain info how we will proceed since not all changes we talked about will make it in the first EXP Version. Tuesday Evening we will decide if we... Read more

I saw in the video elementary and simple logical errors in the game mechanics, no fault company tester revealed these errors. Mistakes that strike your eyes.

That is why I will use strong words this time:
They have no idea what they are doing.
I'm afraid the game is a scam, with amateurs who don't know what they're doing.
And there you wrong. Otherwise we wouldnt have postponed the EXP at all and just release it.
Were actually talking to change the system

Hi Galactic Survivalists!

We are thrilled to release Alpha 10.5 to the public today! This update does not only contain a LOT of bug fixes but we also dedicated a lot of our time to some major (multiplayer) optimizations! The first pass of these changes should allow for a more fluid gameplay experience, especially in combat. We have implemented a few new methods on how data and events are handled and would like to have your feedback on how things have improved. Please use the feedback thread pinned in the feedback forum!

Besides bug fixes and optimizations, Alpha 10.5 has a lot to offer: The orbital planet view is now a real 3D Mesh, showing also terrain heights and other specialities. The Talon will no longer ignore you and also have their own Base Attack. If you ever wanted to toy around with floating text messages and signs, you now can do that with the new LCD Projector device. In the same context, we improved t... Read more

Empyrion Dev Team

==========

CHANGELOG: Alpha 10.3.0 (Build 2539)

PLEASE NOTE: Players who have spawned a recently saved Blueprint that have problems with signals or the device list should execute some console cmds to remove faulty data. For this, step onto that structure, open the console window and enter 'help structure'.
Then execute all three sub-commands to clean up the structure. You may then re-setup your signals, lock codes and custom devicve grouping / naming and save it as a working Blueprint. Sorry for any inconvenience!

Changes:
- Added console cmd 'structure' to manage structure internals

Fixes:
- When some blueprints are spawned they lose their device list & signals setup

I followed every single step. Game launches fine (altho it seems like its crashing), but when I select new game and go into the loadingscreen, after loading the planets to 100% the screen goes black. 10 seconds later it crashes to the desktop, closing down steam completely and 50% of the time forcing me to restart my computer as well, because everything is messed up.
