    Hey Folks!

    Ostranauts v0.6.12.7 is now available on Steam, and your clients should be updating shortly.

    This patch is another hotfix for issues discovered in 0.6.12.4, specifically addressing the K-Leg license not working after the first one expires, adding the missing air vents to the PDA build menu, and some AI ship spawning tweaks.

    Saves from 0.6.12.6 should work, but saves that previously experienced issues may continue to experience those issues, requiring starting a new game.

    Hey Folks!

    Ostranauts v0.6.12.6 is now available on Steam, and your clients should be updating shortly.

    This patch is a hotfix for a few issues discovered in 0.6.12.4, specifically addressing transit not working, crashes while saving/loading on K-Leg, and a bug where captain ignored player input.

    Saves from 0.6.12.4 likely still work, but if you encountered transit not working, it will continue to be broken in 0.6.12.6, requiring either restoring an earlier save backup, or a new game.

    dcfedor's picture

    Hey Folks!

    Ostranauts v0.6.9.0 is now available on Steam: the "Mo' K-Leg, Mo' Problems" Update, and it's another fairly big one.

    It includes a new OKLG station, several new ships, more NPCs (including some flying ships), social system rebalance and UI improvements. Plus, police can board you now, so watch what you're doing :)

    For best results, you are encouraged to start a new character.

    Old saves might still work, but there's a decent chance they'll cause bugs. And will definitely miss new content.

    Hey Folks!

    Ostranauts v0.6.6.6 is now available on Steam, and we're calling it the "Time Is Money" Update.

    It includes a total economy rewrite. You now start with a ship mortgage, and payments due each 6 hours. The boneyard is larger, and the closer derelicts have already been picked clean.

    To make matters worse, K-Leg's not buying the good stuff anymore. But you heard of a fixer there who might.
