This one is our third release candidate for 1.2, meaning that if there’s nothing majorly wrong with it then this will be the 1.2 official version on Monday and we’ll then continue working on 1.3 instead.
However, aside from a few bugfixes in this version, we actually added two new buildings for you to explore — both floating underwater buildings for the ocean. This was something deemed critical for balance so that you could actually find stashes in the ocean tiles, and thus get your hands on sea essence and the like.
And of course there’s a laundry list of other fixes here, some substantial and some not.
For now we’re in major-bugfix/balance-only mode until Tuesday or Wednesday next week, and then we’ll be fully committing to work on 1.3, which will be the next evolution of the game. Enjoy!
This is a standard update that you can download through the
in-game updater itself, if you already have 0.500 or later. When you
launch the game, you’ll see the notice of the update having been found
if you’re connected to the Internet at the time. If you don’t have 0.500 or later, you can download that here.
