Hello engineers! We are writing the new progress on Blueprint system to you!

Our progress on Blueprint:
  • Select multiple building using a frame dragged by the mough - the frame doesn't have to be square, it can be a circle!
  • Generate blueprint data of the frame selected field
  • The preview of applying/using/restore buildings of a Blueprint. All the buildings part have been finished, while the Conveyor Belt and Sorter part are still in process.
  • Realized constraints of applying/using/restore buildings by a Blueprint.

Frame Select and restoration:






Blueprints created around the equator ca... Read more

Hi engineers,

We made some hotfix for the reported problems.
This announcement is combined with the 0.7.18.7085 log which just updated, and the 0.7.18.7070 version updated 3 days ago,

[Version 0.7.18.7085]
Changes:
  • [TAB] is no longer the key of output fliter of Logistic Station because of hotkey conflict. You can use [←]/[→] to switch the fliter of Logistic Station from now on.
  • Optimized the data length of Solar Sail in savedata - now each Solar Sail occupies 57 bytes of savedata (1,000,000 Solar Sailes≈54.3MBytes)

BugFix:
  • Added Error Message for Multi Thread system (The previous version didn't have error prompt for Multi Thread and it may caused further data error). Please know that this Bugfix will lead 'red message' for the savedata with errors.
  • Fixed the bug that the number of 'Number of Engineers' may display incorrectly in Milky Way

Hi, engineers!

It is already our promised DeadLine of an update, and our work is still in full swing! Today we have made some tips on issues that players may be concerned about for the coming update. Here we go!

QA for the coming update
Q: Do we need to start a new game after the update?
A: We are bringing lots of new content in this update, like new planets and modifications on recipe values. All the new changes can only be seen in a new savedata created after the update.


One of the new planets

Q: Will the savedata we play now still be available after the update?
A: Yes, you can still continue the game with your current savedata after the update. However, you'll not be able to see the new contents in the old version savedata. In addition, some of the recipe modifications may... Read more

Hi engineers,

With the coming of April, we are about to enter the rhythm of medium / large scale content development, and a new round of difficulties, and an intensive development schedule. It will take a lot of time, but we will forecast the content of the upcoming patch earlier to facilitate you to plan and prepare in advance. For example - the quick copy of the sorters is on its way.

Let's see the update log today:

[Version 0.6.17.6112]

Hi Engineers!

Spring is coming! Icarus can't feel warm or cold, but we human beings can still be cold at spring. The Chinese old saying ask people to keep warm so that everyone can be healthier in the summer. Have a try!

We also brought you some new features and fixes today. Let’s take a look!

[Version 0.6.17.5972]

Feature:
  • Now you can customize the names of celestial bodies. You can either rename them on thumbnail in the lower left corner, or on and the information panel on the right side of the planetary view / star map interface.

Hi Engineers!

Today is the tree planting day in China. Although we cut down a lot of trees in the game, please be eco-friendly in reality ;).
We heard your voice of the quick copy of the Sorters, Blueprints, etc. Don't worry, they are on their way - as big fans of factory games, we understand your needs!


[Version 0.6.17.5932]

Features:


  • The Mass Upgrade / Dismantle function is now available! You are now able to define the scope of batch upgrades/demolitions in the same way as laying foundations. Please notice the red mark in the screenshot above.

Hi Engineers!

CentreBrain is ready for the bug fixes!

[Version 0.6.17.5831]
  • Fixed the bug that the facility' power consumption was not upgraded after a 'quick upgrading'.
  • Fixed the bug that the facility' animation was not upgraded after a 'quick upgrading'.
  • Added a function of 'Savedata Modification' log. You will be able to look up how your savedata was adjusted after the game updates. We added it In order to prevent the similar situation in the future and reduce some impact of facility data adjustment.

Dear engineers,

We were just astonished to find that the power generation and power consumption of the facilities remained unchanged after a 'quick upgrade'. It is a bug and we are going to fix it soon.

We're sorry to inform that a decline in the electric power supply should be expected after the bug fix, and it may result in large-scale blackouts. Please understand that Centrebrain executes no half measures. So, Engineers! Please prepare your power supply plan and develop the power grid in advance to overcome the upcoming Centrebrain's firmware update.

We will also be adding a function for you to see how the savedata is adjusted after the game version is updated.

Thank you for understanding and support!

Hi Engineers!

Here comes our first update in March. And, an important functional update is also coming soon!


[Version 0.6.17.5827]
Feature:
  • From now on, the savedata will also save its creator's ID. The players will be able to see the savedata creator's ID in the right upper corner of the game.
  • Improved some UI interactive SFX.
Changes:
  • Data reduction of Dyson shell. The length of archive data generated by Dyson shell is reduced by 50% ~ 60%, and the save/load time is reduced by 20% ~ 30%.
  • Data reduction of Sorters and Assemblers.
  • The research materials won't be returned immediately after the research list is suspended. This change is made to avoid the loss of items caused by the logic of "No item will be returned for fractions of a count".
  • The scene at the end of the prologue is improved.
  • Now you can storage/pick f...

Q: How advanced is the Early Access version? How long is the estimated gameplay time?

A: Don't worry: the EA version will have a lot of content – the game will just grow from there. A single playthrough takes between 50 and 100 hours to complete – and that's if you focus on building the Dyson sphere. If you sneak off to explore the universe, spend time optimizing the factory layout , etc., it may take you longer than that.

Q: Are many bugs and glitches to be expected?

A: Obviously, we can't guarantee a 100% bug-free experience (the game is still in development, so it might be rough around the edges in some aspects), but we're working really hard to release the most polished version possible. If you find a bug, you can report to us and we will fix it as soon as possible.

Q: Are there enemies in the game?
A: Icarus does not have an enemy in the current version, but it's a feature we plan to implement in the future. We are a... Read more
