We just released Update 1.1!
This introduces the much-anticipated Asteroid Impact disaster, as well as a rework for the Crisis system, balance changes and a lot of other fixes and improvements.
Added the Asteroid Impact disaster!
Players can now play a severe asteroid impact disaster, with scenarios ranging from investigating the point of impact, evacuating residents, rescuing survivors and dealing with the environmental after effects of this devastating cataclysm!
Crisis rework: We’ve noticed that many experienced Earth players would never use the Crisis, as the risk of losing Force without decreasing the Population (if Humanity successfully prevents the Crisis) is too big. To combat this, we’ve reworked the Crisis to be a lot cheaper to use, and have a viable 0 Force option in case Earth doesn’t want to risk any Force. The Crisis now has four different options:
0 Force cost, 18 points required by humanity, -2 Population if successful.
1 Force cost, 23 points required by humanity, -4 Population if successful.
2 Force cost, 28 points required by humanity, -6 Population if successful.
3 Force cost, 33 points required by humanity, -8 Population if successful.
The Teamplayer and Egotistical awards in the Stage results screen are now based on most positive and negative impact on Population, Ecosystem & Pollution. Before, Egotistical used to be based on the most positive effect on a player's own score, which often resulted in the player that used the most abilities getting the Egotistical award.
AI controlled humanity players will now use abilities.
