TLF Version 1.010-1.011 Released (Pacing And RCI)

Version 1.010 is now out, and has a ton of good stuff.  The biggest thing is that you now wield vastly more power on the solar map — your actions matter more.  How?  The most of the simulation actions are slowed way down, so that your actions don’t get washed away in the butterfly effect […]

TLF Version 1.009 Released (Merging Beta Branch With Official)

Version 1.009 is now out, and overall it is individually a small release.  But this is the first official update to include all the goodies from 1.005 onwards.  So for those not playing the beta branch, this new version is HUGE For those who were playing the beta branch, this one mainly brings improvements to […]

TLF Version 1.007-1008 Beta Released (Solar Map Balance And Auto-Resolve Polish)

Version 1.007 Beta is now out, and focuses on moving things towards merging the beta branch with the official one.  This one is still just in the beta branch (which you can optionally download inside the game itself from the updater) rather than as a full version that everyone gets automatically updated to.  So you […]

TLF Version 1.006 Beta Released (Besieging And Federating)

Version 1.006 Beta is now out, and is another wonderfully vast one.  This one is still just in the beta branch (which you can optionally download inside the game itself from the updater) rather than as a full version that everyone gets automatically updated to.  So you can update or not for this one, at […]

TLF Version 1.005 Beta Released (Holy Smokes It’s Big )

Version 1.005 Beta is now out, and is monstrously, wonderfully huge.  This one changes so many things that we’re releasing it only as a beta version (which you can optionally download inside the game itself from the updater) rather than as a full version that everyone gets automatically updated to.  So you can update or […]

TLF Auto-Resolve Coming Tomorrow

I promised a second release today, but I was a little overly optimistic. ;)  One of the top features that people have been requesting is an auto-resolve feature for battles, and that’s something I’ve been working on today.  I’d thought I’d have it ready in time for a release tonight, but alas not; it will […]

TLF Version 1.004 Released (x64 Linux Build)

Version 1.004 is now out, and is just a quickie.  Another release is coming later tonight. This version now has an x64 Linux build, so that people on x64 linux builds no longer have to have the 32 libs installed or run as root (whoah!) to make the 32 bit version of X Server run. […]

TLF Version 1.003 Released (Permadeath Becomes Optional )

Version 1.003 is now out, and is another biggie.  There are a couple of new features today, instead of just one: 1. Permadeath is now optional, and off by default.  Instead you “narrowly escape” from battles that you would otherwise die in, and it gives you a time penalty in solar map months.  This is […]

TLF Version 1.002 Released (Tech Acquisitions And Planetary Attacks)

Version 1.002 is now out, and includes lots of goodies.  One of the top-requested features was a way to get techs from races that already have them, and so that’s today’s “feature of the day.” Beyond that, there are a ton of fixes and improvements all over the place: * A few GUIs are now […]

TLF Version 1.001 Released (Bugfixes, Large Screen Resolution Support)

Version 1.001 is a small release that fixes a few bugs that slipped past all 165ish of us who were testing (hey, it’s a huge game) and which adds support for screen resolutions larger than 1920×1080. Starting next week we’re going to be releasing at least one new free feature every week for at least […]
